    Looking to book room Grand Californian. Can I pay for this using Disney gift card when I book the rooms online via Disney website instead of credit card? Also, what is the closest (walking distance) Disneyland hotel to the Disneyland main entrance?

    Hello Janice! 
    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for bringing your excellent question our way! 
    You can certainly pay for your Disneyland Resort Hotel Reservation with a Disney Gift Card. Simply make your hotel reservation as you normally would. When prompted to enter your payment information, scroll halfway down the page and select “Pay with a Disney Gift Card” then enter the information for the card. When you check in to the hotel, a credit card may be required to be left on file. But you may pay any balance owed with a Disney Gift Card. Simply visit the front desk on the last night of your visit to close out the balance owed. If you forget to do this, the credit card on file may be charged instead. 

    Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is the closest hotel to both theme parks. Disneyland Park's Entrance is just steps from the hotel. Also, you may use the Grand Gate to enter Disney California Adventure Park directly from the hotel.

    I hope you enjoy a magical visit to “The Happiest Place on Earth!” Please come see us again if you have any more questions related to your upcoming vacation!
