    Can I use the Grand Californian pool on the day I check out after check out time?

    chEARs Debbie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited for you and your upcoming visit! Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a gorgeous hotel full of fantastic amenities! We recently stayed, and we absolutely loved our accommodations! The theming is perfect, the Cast Members are delightful (including favorite Disney friends at Storytellers Cafe), and the entrance into Disney’s California Adventure Park can’t be beaten!

    As a Guest of a Disney Resort hotel, you are more than welcome to use the Resort amenities on the day of check-in and check-out. I would suggest packing your bags and leaving them with Bell Services. They will happily hold them until you are ready to head to the airport. There are bathrooms and showers nearby, so you can easily change once you are finished with your pool fun!

    Before you head out, make sure to grab a snack for the trip! The Downtown Disney District has some of my favorite quick bites in Southern California, including local, seasonal ice cream at Salt & Straw! If you are visiting this Fall and want a snack that you can take on the plane, find the Harvest Brittle - a delicious concoction of nuts, cinnamon, and cranberries!

    Debbie, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. I wish you the Happiest of Vacations!
