    "Guests will also have access to dining and recreation at the other Disneyland Resort hotels—Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and the Disneyland Hotel." How does one get FROM Paradise Pier to the Grand Californian?

    Greetings to you, Kevin!

    Welcome and thanks for bringing your question to us here at planDisney! Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel is currently undergoing an exciting remodel to be transformed into the Pixar Place Hotel! Although no opening date has been set, I've been eagerly following the construction updates in anticipation.

    I called and spoke to a Cast Member at the Paradise Pier Hotel to inquire about the details of accessing the other Disneyland Resort Hotels. During this construction period, Guests will be able to access the fitness center and the swimming pools of the Disneyland Hotel. Cast Members are offering transportation to and from the Disneyland Hotel via golf cart upon request. As far as Disney's Grand Californian Hotel, they are not currently offering transportation to that Resort, so you would have to make the short walk across Disneyland Drive to access the lobby or the special entrance to Disney California Adventure for Paradise Pier Hotel Guests. Don't forget to bring your room key so you can access the gates.

    Have you seen the Monorail Waterslide at the Disneyland Hotel? I love the theming of that entire area! Hotel Guests also get preferred reservation access to select Disneyland Resort hotel table-service restaurants during their stay, so feel free to make reservations at one of my favorites, Storytellers Cafe

    Kevin, I hope you do consider staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels. I recently had a perfectly wonderful stay at the Paradise Pier Hotel and the construction was fairly unobtrusive because it largely occurs while Guests are away. If there are any other questions that we can answer for you, please reach out to us anytime! We're here to help.

    Have a Magical Day!

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
