    How exactly does the security entrance from California Grand Hotel work? And, can we get on the monorail there for quick transportation?

    Greetings, Michele!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm so excited you are staying at my very favorite Disneyland Resort Hotel, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa!

    This hotel boasts some of my favorite dining on Disneyland Resort property as well as my favorite decor and pools. I could easily spend a day just relaxing in the stunning lobby, enjoying a meal and drinks at the GCH Craftsman Bar and Grill, admiring the artistic elements around the hotel, and sitting by the fire at the large hearth.

    Guests staying at this hotel are able to utilize the convenient hotel park entrance directly into Disney California Adventure Park when showing their room key. This makes trips to and from the room SO incredibly simple. Alternatively you can exit the hotel at the Downtown Disney District and walk to the esplanade between the parks from there. The Disneyland Monorail is located in the Downtown Disney District closer to the Disneyland Hotel. You will find it faster to walk to the parks using the methods I just described versus taking the Monorail, but you are still welcome to utilize it. Hopping on the Monorail in the Downtown Disney District will take you directly into Tomorrowland. We love to take the Monorail for a spin when we need a little rest and relaxation while enjoying the spectacular views it offers.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a practically perfect trip!
