    How far is the Disneyland Monorail from Paradise Pier? I have foot issues and walk to minimize walking as much as possible at Disneyland. Thanks!

    Hiya Brenda!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with your question! How exciting to hear that you'll be celebrating the beginning of 2024 with a trip to the Disneyland Resort! I can't think of a better way to welcome the new year and you'll even catch the tail end of the Holiday Season. I think there might be a Mickey Gingerbread with your name on it!

    It's an exciting time for Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel because it's currently being reimagined into the Pixar Place Hotel, which is slated to become official soon after your visit. I stayed there a couple of months ago and the new lobby is absolutely gorgeous, evoking images from some of my favorite Pixar films. And the Great Maple Modern American Eatery just had its Grand Opening not too long ago. This restaurant is located right in the lobby of the hotel, so you'll never be far away from a nice meal. I think you're going to have a wonderful time at this property. 

    The Downtown Disney District Monorail Station is approximately 0.2 miles away from the entrance of Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel and is a 5 minute walk on a flat surface. Being a Guest at the Paradise Pier, you'll also be eligible to use a special entrance into Disney California Adventure that is just across the street! It's so convenient to return to your hotel at the end of the day that way. 

    If you'd like to further minimize the walking you'd have to do, consider using ScooterBug, the Disney Featured Provider for the Disneyland Hotels, to drop off a wheelchair or ECV (Electric Conveyance Vehicle) at your hotel so it's waiting for you upon check-in. These may also be rented on a daily, first-come, first-served basis right outside the Parks in the Esplanade. 

    Brenda, I hope that this information is helpful for you as you plan your visit. If you need anything further from us, please feel free to visit and write to us again! You're always welcome at planDisney and we hope to see ya real soon!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
