    Hi there! Looking for a firmer sense of what happens as we start our morning at Paradise Pier. We walk to the park gate, right? Only one entrance? I recall there being some variables, but can't recall where I read about them.

    Hey there, hi there, David! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    I just stayed at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel with my ‘ohana two weeks ago and we loved the new exclusive entrance to Disney California Adventure Park

    The entrance for Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel Guests is just across the street from the hotel. Cross the street as if you’re walking towards Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Towards the right you’ll see a sign that says, “Paradise Pier Hotel Guests Only.” With your room key, you will be able to unlock the gate.

    Proceed down the path, maybe a two-minute walk. There will be Cast Members at the end of this path to scan your tickets. You will be entering the park near Goofy’s Sky School and Corn Dog Castle! We entered the park around 9:00 a.m. and there was no line to enter. 

    Keep in mind that as of August 8, Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests have a 30-minute early entry (this is available at both parks, so you can leverage it for whichever park you have a starting reservation for.) Another great perk for Guests of all three Disneyland Resort Hotels!

    If you’re visiting Disneyland Park first, I would recommend walking through Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa to the Downtown Disney District. Cross the street and you’ll see the gate to enter the hotel; your Paradise Pier Hotel key will allow you to enter through that gate as well. Once in the Downtown Disney District, it will be a short walk to the main entrance of Disneyland Park. 

    I absolutely loved these options as a Guest of Paradise Pier Hotel – getting to both parks was quick and easy.

    Wishing you a magical vacation – adventure is out there!
