    I'm looking forward to coming to Disneyland in the summer but I wonder if me and my family can walk to the Disney entrance easily from my hotel? We are staying at the Clarion Hotel, Anaheim.

    Hi there, Melanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for you to Get Your Ears On at the Disneyland Resort this year!

    I'm glad you have already booked your hotel accommodations at a nearby Disneyland Resort Good Neighbor Hotel. I actually stayed at this very same hotel this summer for the grand opening weekend of Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure Park and had a wonderful stay. The Clarion Hotel Anaheim Resort is conveniently located off of South Harbor Boulevard. The walk from this hotel to the Disneyland Resort is approximately a half of a mile which is definitely doable but long enough that you will want to leave adequate time to get to the Resort (about 20 minutes) and go through the security checkpoints. One convenient option that can save you some time and footsteps is to walk across the street from this hotel to the Toy Story Parking Area and utilize the complimentary bus transportation that takes you closer to the Disneyland Resort entrance. When I was in more of a rush in the morning, I chose this option to get me to the parks faster. At night I was fine taking the leisurely walk back to my hotel, but the choice is yours.

    This summer brings some REALLY exciting, out-of-this-world experiences to Disneyland Park with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more announcements about one of the most anticipated additions to the Disneyland Resort in its history.

    Please return if you have any other questions, and may the Force be with you!
