    When I stay at Disney Paradise Pier Hotel,can I buy individual lightning lane before entering the park?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, ? (Youkoso!). We're so so glad you're here. Thanks for stopping by with your question. It's always nice when you feel prepared for your visit, so let's get to your question.

    How exciting that you will be staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. In order to purchase and select an Individual Lightning Lane, you indeed will need to be scanned in and have entered the park first. The best part (in my opinion) about staying on resort property is you gain access to the Early Entry Benefit and can enter the parks 30 minutes before regular park opening. This will come in extra handy when lining up your Individual Lightning Lane purchase.

    Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel is a wonderful place to stay at the Disneyland Resort. Not only do you get early park entry, but there's also an entrance across the street with direct access to Disney California Adventure Park (Sore wa subarashii desu ne!). I do also want to share that Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel is currently undergoing transformation and you can visit this site for pertinent updates.

    It's a wonderful time to visit the Disneyland Resort. The Disney100 Celebration is currently happening and the resort is beautifully decorated in platinum and purple adornments. There are also two new nighttime spectaculars that are absolutely magical. I strongly recommend making time to see Wondrous Journeys. There's nothing quite like the sight of Baymax soaring over Sleeping Beauty Castle. 

    I hope this information has been helpful. If you have other questions, please come back to visit us. Here's wishing you a magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.
