    What are all the hotel-exclusive entrances for Disneyland Resort guests? We will be staying at the Disneyland Hotel specifically so we'd like to know what exclusive entrance we have access to and route to get there. Thank you!

    Hello, S!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question! My family loves staying at the Disneyland Hotel! My kids always turn on the light-up Sleeping Beauty Castle headboards before bedtime, and I appreciate how each hotel tower pays tribute to the Happiest Place on Earth. There are also fantastic dining options, including Goofy's Kitchen, Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill, and the new Palm Breeze Bar.

    Guests staying at the Disneyland Hotel do not have an exclusive entrance to the theme parks. I hope that is not too disappointing! However, a short walk from your hotel will bring you to the Downtown Disney District Monorail station, where you can hop aboard the Disneyland Monorail. It will take you to Tomorrowland in Disneyland Park, making it easy to blast off through the cosmos on Space Mountain, explore a galaxy far, far away on Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, or hit the road on Autopia. Just follow the signs to the Downtown Disney District when you exit your hotel. You will pass through a security station and then keep walking until the Monorail Station appears on your left.

    You can also walk from the Disneyland Hotel through the Downtown Disney District to enter either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. I love those early morning walks through the Downtown Disney District when the air is crisp and my family is excited about the fun activities we have planned for the day. This is especially true when we are taking advantage of the Early Entry Benefit for registered Disneyland Resort hotel guests. These guests can enter a theme park 30 minutes before the park opens to enjoy select attractions, dining, and shopping locations. Each day, either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park will be open early. Just check the Hours & Events Calendar for the Early Entry schedule. 

    S, I hope you have a wonderful visit to Disneyland Resort! Please reach out to us again if you have other questions!
