    The site says there are separate Disney lots for hotel guests and that if you are not a guest you have to pay an hourly fee. If we check in early to go straight to the park (8am) are we considered hotel guests or do we have to pay the additional to park?

    Hi, Lisa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Since you’ll be checking in as a Guest of a Disneyland Resort Hotel, you can bypass the theme park lots and park your vehicle directly at the lot of your hotel destination. You can feel free to pull up to the lobby loading zone first to unload luggage—simply give your name to the attendant at the gate and tell them you’re checking in. However, be aware that there will still be an additional fee to self-park or use the valet service. The current rate for registered hotel guests is $17 per vehicle, per night for self-parking and $25 per night for valet parking. 

    I hope this helps, Lisa, and that you enjoy a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to the Disneyland Resort! Please write back with any other questions you may have as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
