    My last day at the Paradise Pier hotel will be the 15, but we will be visiting DCA on this day. Will we be able to use the special entrance into the park through the Disney Grand hotel even if we checked out that morning?

    Hello Destiny!

    Welcome to planDisney! It sounds like your visit is just around the corner, so I hope you are getting packed and ready for your magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Guests of Disneyland Resort Hotels are eligible for all the perks and amenities of their hotel until midnight on the day of check-out. This means you can still swim in the hotel pool or even ask the resort to hold your luggage at Bell Services for the day while you enjoy the theme parks. However, the entrance to Disney's California Adventure Park is currently only available to Guests of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. While in the past Guests of Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel were able to use this entrance, that is not currently the case. You will need to walk through the Downtown Disney District and use the main entrance.

    There is a lot that is new at the Disneyland Resort, Destiny! It’s Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, so be sure to check out all the fun happenings at both parks. There are fun treats, decorative pumpkins, and you can see your favorite characters in their Halloween costumes! It’s always best to know before you go, so take a moment to check out what you can expect during your visit in terms of needing park reservations, face coverings, and more, so you are prepared and ready to have a practically perfect visit to the theme parks.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Destiny! Have a great visit to the Disneyland Resort!
