    We have a reservation at the Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa including a 3 day hopper. How do we reserve the days we want to be able to be in the park in advance to ensure we can get in. Knowing that day 1 is Easter, I am concerned.

    Hi, Aaron!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    Your trip to Disneyland Resort will be here before you know it!  I'm sure you're getting excited, and I must say you've chosen the perfect time to visit.  The Disney100 Celebration is in full swing with some breathtaking new nighttime spectaculars, a brand-new attraction, and so much more!  You're sure to make some magical memories that will last a lifetime, so let's make sure to get your theme park reservations all squared away.

    If you haven't done so already, be sure to first link your theme park tickets and your reservation for Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa to your Disneyland account.  Once that's taken care of, you can view the theme park reservation availability calendar.  You'll want to click on the button that says "Disney Hotel Guests" to see which parks are available for you to book on which dates.  Currently, I am seeing that both theme parks are available for Disney Hotel Guests for the entire month of April.  However, I expect that those reservations will start filling up soon, so be sure to book yours as soon as possible. 

    Aaron, you are going to love your stay at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.  The hotel is gorgeous, and the location is so convenient!  Did you know that as a Guest of this hotel, you will be able to enter both the Downtown Disney District and Disney's California Adventure Park directly from the hotel lobby?  Another perk of staying at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is the delicious dining options.  I love grabbing a quick breakfast at GCH Craftsman Grill before heading to the theme parks.  Their Belgian waffles are amazing!

    Wishing you the best vacation ever!
