    I have a reservation at the Disneyland Hotel coming up in September. I was planning on using the Early Entry on the day I check in and taking the monorail into Disneyland, having checked in online before arriving. What do I need to do to use early entry?

    Hi there Jessica!

    Welcome to planDisney! How exciting that you’ll be staying at the gorgeous Disneyland Hotel - a true icon. I’m still savoring the memories of my own stay there last winter. Speaking of which, I recently caught the “Behind the Attraction” episode all about the Disneyland Hotel on Disney+. It’s fascinating how much history is packed into that place! It's the hotel that set the stage for all the magical Disney Resort experiences we now enjoy worldwide.

    My fellow panelist, Tony S, is a master of maximizing his hotel experience. When check-in day comes around, he always makes sure to arrive early at the hotel. That way, he and his family can enjoy the benefits of being hotel guests even before their check-in time! Just park your car before the park opens and head straight to one of the parks to enjoy Early Entry

    Jessica, have you already linked your hotel reservations to the Disneyland Mobile App? Once you do that, you’re all set to hop on over to the theme parks before they’re open to the general public on the first day of your stay!

    Feel free to keep those questions coming, Jessica! I’d love to share my favorite tips or suggestions for your trip to the Disneyland Resort. I was hoping you could think of me as your own personal Olaf, here to guide you and cheer you on along the way. If you need a quicker response next time, feel free to send me a direct message now that you've got a friend in me!

    Sending you a warm hug,

    Wait…I don’t even know a Samantha!
