    I am planning a trip to Disneyland beginning on March 31st 2023. I will be making a reservation at the Disneyland Hotel for 3 nights. I will be arriving at the hotel around 11:00am on Friday March 31st. Can i use the pool while waiting for room to be ready

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Ruth, you’re as welcome as can be to planDisney!

    It’s never too early to start planning your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, so I’d love to help you with your question! First off, I'm thrilled that you selected my family’s favorite hotel on-property, the Disneyland Hotel. You are definitely going to want to soak up all the pool time you can, since this hotel features the amazing Monorail Waterslides, which could keep my Mouseketeers busy for hours! So, I’m happy to report that yes, you are welcome to use the pool while you’re waiting for your room to be ready on your arrival day, and even on your departure day, too! I recommend packing an extra bag with your pool essentials so you can store the rest of your luggage at the Bell Desk. You can also spend some time exploring the other Disneyland Resort Hotels and Downtown Disney District. There’s magic to be found around every corner of the Disneyland Resort!

    As for booking your magical getaway, I recently checked with a Cast Member, and she said that we should see next year’s rates available by mid-September. In past years, I’ve seen Vacation Packages and Disneyland Resort Hotel reservations available by the end of August, so I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any updates.

    Last but not least, have you heard the recent news about early entry returning soon, Ruth? Starting August 8, 2022, Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests can enter the theme parks 30 minutes early to enjoy select attractions, dining, and shopping locations! So, by the time you arrive in March, you’ll be able to take advantage of this great hotel benefit. 

    Please stop by with any additional planning questions as your trip gets closer… we’re all EARs!
