    We plan on rope-dropping Disneyland and heading to the Hotel at check-in time. Will we have access to Early Park Hours on the day we check-in? Also, where can we park?

    Hey Evelyn!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    One of my favorite things about staying at one of the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort is being immersed in the Magic and the proximity to Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. I see that you’ve heard about the greatest perk of all, early entry to both of the parks! Guest staying at one of the three Hotels of the Disneyland Resort will be able to enter Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park up to 30 minutes before its regular scheduled opening. You’ll want to make sure you have a theme park reservation on your check-in day and any other day you’d like to use this benefit. 

    If you’d like to take advantage of early park entry on your first day, you’ll need to make sure you arrive extra early. You can go ahead and park at the hotel you’re staying at and then head to the check-in counter. At that time, you’ll receive your room keys which you’ll need to show at the parks in order to enter early. It’s also a good idea to have tickets or passes and your hotel reservation linked on the Disneyland app as sometimes they ask for that instead of your room key. You can leave your bags with Bell Services and then head to the parks! Once your room is ready, you will receive a text message telling you your room number and then at that point, you would be able to head to your room anytime you want. From your room, call Bell Services and they’ll bring your stuff right up!

    Well Evelyn, if you have any other questions for us please don’t hesitate to let us know!

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
