    Can guests staying at the Paradise Pier Hotel use the separate entrance during Early Entry as well or only during normal park times?

    Welcome to planDisney, Lauren. We're so glad you're here and shared this question with us. Oh boy, it sounds like you are in full planning mode for a visit to the Disneyland Resort and I'm delighted to help.

    I absolutely love staying on property at a Disneyland Resort Hotel whenever I can. There are so many wonderful benefits, but I think my favorite is the Early Entry benefit. It's especially fabulous when you're staying at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel (soon to be Pixar Place Hotel) because you will have access to the special entrance into Disney California Adventure Park - even for early entry. You will want to make sure your starting theme park reservation (or for the day) is for Disney California Adventure Park. And hey, on the days that you're headed to Disneyland Park, you can even take the Disneyland Monorail right into the park (subject to availability) during early entry.

    Did you know that fireworks viewing has also returned to Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel? On select nights, you can head to the third-floor pool deck for a spectacular view as well as listen to a live synchronized broadcast from the park. Be sure to visit the website before your arrival for any other hotel construction updates that may be announced.

    I hope this helps, Lauren. The Holidays at the Disneyland Resort will be in full swing for your visit and there will be so many festive things to do (and eat). The Mickey gingerbread cookie is already calling my name. If we can help with any other questions, please come back to visit us. Until then, I wish you happy planning!
