    Hello! I have reservations at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel as well as tickets/reservations for a magical day in the park. We would like to spend the morning and afternoon in the park before we check in at 3PM. What parking lot should we go to?

    Hey Eric!
    Welcome to planDisney!
    You’re going to love your next stay at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa! I had a stay there about a week ago and it was as magnificent as I imagined it would be. My kids are still talking about how much they loved the pool and keep asking when our next trip is. I guess that means I’ll have to book my next trip so we have something to count down to. With all the festivities coming for Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, I may see myself there sooner than later!
    On the day you check in, you will still park at the hotel even if you are heading to the park that same morning. When you pull in, a Cast Member will tell you where to go and you can either choose self parking or valet. Make sure you check in online before you get there so that once you get to the hotel, it goes much faster at guest services when you get your room key. I suggest you drop your bags off with bell services before you head to the parks. Once your room is ready you will receive a text message and when you get to your room you can call and have them bring your stuff right up. Then you can head right back out to the parks! Don’t forget that Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa has its own entrance into Disney California Adventure Park and is super convenient.
    Well Eric, I hope you enjoy your stay and if you need anything else please come back and let us know.
    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
