    We have a early arriving flight to LA and are staying at the Disneyland Hotel. Can we drop our bags and use the pool / waterslide that day prior to check-in? is there a service for adding something special to the room prior to arriving kids first time?

    Well hello, Matthew! Thank you for bringing your question to us at planDisney. The countdown is on for your upcoming stay at the Disneyland Resort and I'm delighted to help with your question.

    I'm so glad you're arriving early to take advantage of some pool time right away. You will have access to use the pool and monorail slide on the day of your check-in to the Disneyland Hotel. When you arrive at the resort, proceed to the front desk to check in and they will get you set up. The Bell Services desk is just outside of the hotel's main entrance doors. You can drop off your bags here while you enjoy some relaxing pool time. I also recommend stopping by Tangaroa Terrace for a refreshing DOLE Whip.

    How wonderful that it will be your kids' first visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! For a fee, In-Room Celebrations are offered at all three Disneyland Resort Hotels for an extra special surprise for their first stay. You can also ask the front desk for complimentary "1st Visit" buttons to celebrate the occasion, and they make a nice souvenir.

    Matthew, there are so many wonderful things about staying at the iconic Disneyland Hotel. One of my favorite benefits is the early entry to the parks. You can enter the parks 30 minutes before park opening to enjoy select attractions. When at Disneyland, I usually like to use this time to ride one of my favorite attractions, Peter Pan's Flight. I also highly recommend downloading the Disneyland app which you can use to enter your room with the digital key. You can also the Direct-to-Room Service to check-in within 5 days of your arrival. It's so convenient to get a notification within the app when your room is ready!

    I hope this has been helpful, Matthew. I'm so excited for your family's upcoming stay! You chose a great time to visit with the Disney100 Celebration kicking off on January 27. Please come back and see us at planDisney with any other questions - even feel free to ask me directly.

    Wishing you a magical visit,
