    I am planning my family trip to Disneyland, and will be in the park on Feb. 16-20, 2024. We are staying at the Grand Californian. I would like to reserve my parks in alignment with the Early Entry dates. Do you know which parks will have this on which date

    Hi there, Tania!

    Thanks so much for your question! Early Entry is a fabulous perk for guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, I'm always amazed at how much we can accomplish if we get up bright and early. I'm glad you plan to make that time part of your visit, it's so worth it!

    The best place to find all things schedule-related is the Hours and Events Calendar. While it doesn't stretch to your travel dates just yet, it does show the current plan for Early Entry days a few weeks before that when the schedule changes. Right now, it looks like Disneyland Park will have Early Entry for Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays and Disney California Adventure Park will have Early Entry for those guests on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Schedules are always subject to change, so keep an eye on that calendar when your travel dates are released in a few weeks. It usually populates about six weeks in advance.

    For the mornings when you visit Disney California Adventure Park don't forget that guests of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa have their very own entrance to that park! The early morning is one of my favorite times to use that entrance because it runs along a beautiful area near the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. Keep your eyes open in the mornings for some special guests, like ducks and cats who call the parks home!

    One thing I would not do in the Early Entry time is stop for breakfast. That time is precious! I'd ride as much as you can, then when you need a snack try out the new breakfast items at Smokejumpers Grill in Disney California Adventure Park or Royal Street Veranda (three words: Monte Cristo Waffles!) in Disneyland Park.

    Tania, I'm so glad I was able to get an idea of the Early Entry schedule so you can make those park reservations and get planning! I hope you have a fabulous visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    Keep moving forward!
