    I’m staying at Stovall’s Inn. What is the best entrance into Disneyland at the beginning of May? I know they are doing construction at downtown Disney.

    Hey there, hi there, Jennifer and welcome back to planDisney! We are so glad to see you stopped by again with another great question for us. 

    You are correct that the Downtown Disney District is currently undergoing some construction and renovations for a new reimagined Downtown Disney District that was announced last year. However, as of now the construction taking place is the demolition of a few buildings and the clean up which is not affecting the general flow of traffic through the Downtown Disney District. I think taking South Disneyland Drive to the Downtown Disney District entrance near the Disneyland Hotel would be best. I've found that this security entrance is usually also much less crowded than the other security entrance off of South Harbor Drive. The monorail is also currently running, which would be another option to get into Disneyland Park once you arrive in the Downtown Disney District. 

    Be sure to get your autograph books ready! Starting as early as April 18, 2022, character interactions will begin to transition back to an experience more like what we saw previous to the parks closures. This means that while you are visiting The Happiest Place on Earth you might just be able to give your favorite character a warm hug! I know this has been something so many Guests of all ages have been waiting for. 

    Jennifer, I hope that your upcoming visit is full of magic and that you will have time to experience some of the nighttime spectaculars that are returning this month. My family is so excited to have World of Color returning to Disney California Adventure Park. Be sure to stop by again if you have any other questions that come up!
