    Will I get guaranteed ticket access to the Parks if I have Hotel reservations at Grand Californian Hotel on July 23 thru the 29th when we arrive at our arrival date?

    Hi there, Michael, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so glad you’re here, and I’m so excited for your upcoming visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    You’re going to make so many special memories at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa… it’s one of my family’s favorite places to stay! From the delicious dining options, to the elegant Craftsman-style décor, to the super-convenient location, there are so many things to love about this special hotel. I highly recommend checking out GCH Craftsman Bar, too. I had the chance to enjoy a meal there just a few months ago, and I loved everything about it! Don’t forget the Waffle-Churro Sundae for dessert, too!

    Unfortunately, your hotel reservation doesn’t guarantee ticket access to the theme parks. At this time, new ticket sales have been paused. In addition, to help comply with governmental recommendations and to promote physical distancing, the Disneyland Resort will be managing attendance through a new theme park reservation system. This system will require all Guests to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. So, to enter a park, all Guests will need both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date. Reservations will be limited and subject to availability. We should be hearing more information about the new reservation system and future ticket sales soon, so I recommend continuing to check this page and the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest updates.

    I'm sending pixie dust your way and hoping for the best for your July visit! Please stop by with any additional questions, Michael… I’m all EARs!

    Hope to see ya’ real soon,
