    Can my nanny accompany our family in the Grand Californian hotel without having a park ticket? She will be staying to watch the baby and will not be going into the park.

    Greetings to you, Felicia!

    Welcome to planDisney and we appreciate you stopping by with your question! You're going to love staying at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa! It's the closest Resort Hotel to the Theme Parks and I love the Craftsman style architecture of the property. The Grand Lobby is a wonderful space in which to just hang out and it currently has a Galactic Creation sculpture of the Millennium Falcon arriving at Black Spire Outpost that's made entirely of edible materials! 

    I'm happy to report that your nanny is more than welcome to accompany you to the Hotel and stay with you without needing a Theme Park Ticket. If she is staying overnight in the hotel, she will need to be listed as a Guest on the Hotel's registry, however. As a Guest, she is free to roam the property and it might make for a nice walk for her and your baby. In fact, she can explore all of Downtown Disney District without a Theme Park Ticket! 

    When will you be visiting the Disneyland Resort? Make sure that you have your valid Park Ticket and park reservations and don't forget to make your dining reservations 60 days ahead of your arrival. You can take a look at the 2024 Events Calendar to know what to expect at the Resort for the rest of the year. There's always something happening there!

    Felicia, I hope that this response was helpful in your planning. Please don't hesitate to come on back with more questions because we'd love to continue being involved in your trip. You're always welcome at planDisney!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
