    How do I link my Grand Californian reservation (with park tickets) to my app?

    Hi there, Valerie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm so excited about your upcoming visit to the Disneyland Resort and Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. I stayed at the Grand Californian earlier this year. I just loved the recently-remodeled rooms, the exquisite architecture and design, and the super-convenient access to Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District.

    If you are familiar with Walt Disney World in Florida, you'll recognize many similarities with the Disneyland Resort. There are some differences as well. The Disneyland app does allow you to link in your theme park tickets and dining reservations. But hotel reservations are accessed only through the Disneyland Resort website.

    So, you might be wondering how you access the many benefits of being a guest at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. The answer is your Key to the Magic card. This special card is your room key, your key to the beautiful pools, and also your key to the Eureka Fitness Center. But that's not all. You may also use your Key to the Magic to charge dining and merchandise purchases at select Disneyland Resort locations right to your room. When used along with your valid theme park admission, your Key to the Magic also grants you access to Extra Magic Hour early admission as well as to the exclusive Disney California Adventure Park entrance in the morning.

    You will still want to link your park tickets into the Disneyland app. You can use the app in place of your tickets for park entry and for redeeming Disney FASTPASS. And if you have Disney MaxPass added to your park tickets, you'll be able to manage your FASTPASS selections and Disney PhotoPass pictures from the convenience of your mobile device! The Disneyland app on your mobile device can also save you time when you use Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering to avoid waiting in line to order and pay for your meals at select dining locations.

    I hope you have a magical time, Valerie!
