    Can you leave your car in hotel resort parking on the day of check out to visit one of the parks?

    Hi Michael!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for sending your Disneyland Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR at planDisney. I'm happy to be your planEAR today!!

    Oh, you are visiting Mickey's house at the perfect time, Michael. It's not too hot just yet, the beautiful spring blooms are everywhere, and the pools at the Disneyland Resort Hotels are heated to a perfect temp to fully enjoy a swim in the SoCal sunshine. I'm very happy to say that Guests who stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel are welcome to enjoy the hotel's amenities from the minute they arrive, even if their guest room isn't quite ready yet, until they need to say their final "See Ya' Real Soon" or until 11:59 P.M. on their check-out day, whichever happens first. This includes using the pool, the fitness facility, and even leaving your car in the parking lot of your Disneyland Resort Hotel. In your case, Michael, you can get a whole day's worth of last magical hours to visit Disneyland Park, Disney's California Adventure Park, or even all of the shops and restaurants at the Downtown Disney District!

    Pro Tip: There is a small changing and shower facility in the pool area of each Disneyland Resort Hotel, so be sure to pack your suit and a change of clothes in your carry-on so you can really make a splash as soon as you get into town. There are plenty of complimentary towels in the pool area so you can leave those at home.

    I hope this helped to clEAR up your question, Michael! I know you'll have the best time at Disneyland Resort this weekend. While you're in town be sure to check out the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival. It's truly the best-ival!
