    My family booked a stay at paradise pier for this Saturday night to Sunday morning with the understanding we could enter Disneyland park early. I’ve since read this may be incorrect and on Sunday guests can only enter California adventure early?

    Hiya, Patrick!

    Thanks for stopping by the planDisney Panel to ask about your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort. It’s a pleasure to help you make the most of your time at The Happiest Place on Earth!

    Some changes are coming to the Disneyland Resort for Guests who will be using the Early Entry benefit available to those staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels. Though, those changes won’t be taking place until early 2024. So your original plans for this weekend are still good to go!

    Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels who also have valid theme park admission and theme park reservations can enter the park they have reserved up to 30 minutes before the regular park opening time. For now, both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will be open to hotel Guests every day to take advantage of this benefit. Starting on January 20, 2024, the two parks will begin to take turns for which park will allow hotel Guests to enter early. The theme park calendar will show which park is offering Early Entry on which days.

    Tony’s Tip: As Guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, you can take advantage of most of the hotel amenities and benefits even before your room is ready on check-in day and even after check-out time on your last day. That includes Early Entry. Even before your room is ready on check-in day, you can use the Disneyland mobile app to display your room reservation when redeeming your Early Entry benefits at the theme park. Be sure to take advantage of the Direct-to-Room Service so you can enjoy your room even sooner once it’s ready.

    Tony’s Tip Times Two: Early Entry at the Disneyland Resort theme parks is one of my favorite benefits of staying at a Disneyland Resort. One of my other favorite benefits is that our hotel is so close to the parks. And we sure take advantage of that! Given that we wake up early to start the magic right, we start to wear out sooner too. So it’s great to have a convenient place to lie down and rest for a little while during the afternoon. Then, we are refreshed and ready to go for tons more magic in the evenings!

    Have a magical stay, Patrick!
