    I’m staying at the Grand California and I’ve checked in through the app. When I arrive on Friday, do I have to check in at the check in desk or am I good to go?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Krista. I am super excited to hear that you'll be checking in to Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa tomorrow! Squee! You're sure to have a magical stay.

     To answer your question, yes, since you've completed the online check-in process, you're good to go! There's no need for you to stop by the Front Desk (although I do encourage you to spend some time exploring the beautiful Craftsman-style lobby). When your room is ready, the Disneyland app will send you a notification. You can then open the app to view your room number and access your digital key. It's like magic! If you're ready to hit the theme parks before your room is ready, just leave your luggage with Bell Services. They'll be happy to assist you!

     Did you know that you're entitled to unique perks as a Guest of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa? Be sure to take advantage of Early Entry. With this benefit, you can enter the theme parks 30 minutes before regular park opening. And don't forget that Guests of Disneyland Resort hotels can enjoy Next-Day Package Delivery. If you buy a Disney souvenir (or several, let's be honest) at the theme parks or the Downtown Disney District, you can ask about package delivery to Disney's Grand Floridian Hotel & Spa. That way, you don't have to carry your bags on your pixie-dusted adventures!

     I hope this was helpful, Krista. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Disneyland Resort!
