    My husband and I will arrive in L.A. in the early morning and staying at the Paradise Pier Hotel on Monday November 18th, 2019. Can check into the hotel early before noon so we can enjoy the day at the park on Monday November 18th, 2019?

    chEARs Dianne!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so happy to hEAR that you are staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel. The hotels are my Disney “jam,” and you are going to love the benefits of staying on property! One of the best is Extra Magic Hours - as a Resort Guest, you have VIP access to the Parks. Take advantage of lower crowds for shorter wait times at attractions, entertainment, and more!

    You are more than welcome to arrive at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel at any time the morning of check-in. When you arrive, you can leave your luggage with Bell Services; they will be more than happy to store it while you are enjoying the Parks. You may get lucky and have your room ready early, but the standard room available time is 3:00 PM. Once you’ve checked in and dropped off your luggage, feel free to explore the Parks! You will get a text message when your room is ready, so no worries about checking back at the Front Desk!

    Dianne, Resort hotel amenities are available to you all day on your check-in and check-out days, so make sure to enjoy all that your hotel has to offer! Like my friend Jennifer, our family usually enjoys the pool on one of those days. Guess what? Your hotel has one of the best slides around! With the longest slide of any of the Disneyland Resort hotels (186 feet!), and it’s relaxed beachside roller coaster vibe, you are guaranteed a California Screamin’ good time!

    If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. I wish you a magical vacation!
