    I set my Disney park reservations for Disneyland on 25th, Disneyland 26th, DCA ON 27th. I got park hopper and genie +. Staying at the Pixar hotel wanting early entrance. Would I have to change my reservation on the 25th for early entrance?

    A warm welcome from all of us at planDisney to you, Elizabeth. We're so glad you're here with this question. It won't be long until you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy. Did that give you chills too?

    I love hearing that you will be staying in the Disney bubble at a Disneyland Resort hotel for your visit. One of the best perks (in my opinion) is the Early Entry benefit. Early entry is available for one designated theme park every day. Early entry days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for Disneyland Park and Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday for Disney California Adventure Park. I checked the theme park calendar which confirmed that March 25th is a Monday and early entry is available for Disney California Adventure Park. You will need to change your theme park reservation to enjoy the early entry benefit.

    Not to worry, you can easily modify your theme park reservation at the Disneyland site. Head to "Ticket and Reservations Details" which can be found under the heading "My Disneyland." Next, click "Make or Modify Park Reservations" and click the link to "Modify Reservation" for March 25th to update your starting park. Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, it's that easy and you're all set for early entry. 

    You are going to love the newly reimagined Pixar Place Hotel. I stayed there not too long ago and was completely swept away by all of the magical details. Be sure to make time to stop by the pool deck on the third floor to meet Bing Bong. Pixar Place Hotel is the only place at the resort where you can experience this whimsical meet and greet. I also really loved using the direct park access to Disney California Adventure Park. After exiting the lobby, make a left and cross Disneyland Drive towards Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and follow the signs for Pixar Place Hotel guests. You'll use your room key to access the gate and take the path to the theme park entrance. It's about a 10-minute walk and super convenient.

    Elizabeth, I hope this helps as you are getting ready for your magical visit. I just know you are going to have the best time. Adventure is out there! Let the countdown to the magic begin.
