    Hello, I will be staying at the Disneyland Hotel in December 2024. I was wondering if the outdoor terrace at the Grand can be accessed by Disneyland Hotel guests? Thanks!

    Hi, Constance!

    Welcome back to planDisney. I’m glad you stopped by to ask us another Disneyland Resort question, and I’m happy to hear you’re planning a stay at the beautiful Disneyland Hotel! The magical decor sprinkled throughout all the rooms there makes it my favorite of all the on-property hotels. The carved wooden headboards feature fiber-optic fireworks, creating an in-room light and music show with the flip of a switch!

    Access to the Paradise View Terrace, the sixth-floor deck that overlooks a portion of Disney California Adventure Park, is limited to Guests staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, and a valid room key is required to enter that space. However, if you were hoping to get a bird’s-eye view of the park, I suggest taking a ride on Pixar Pal-A-Round. You’ll soar up to 150 feet in the air and can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of Disney California Adventure Park from either a fixed or a swinging gondola!

    If you can, plan to spend time enjoying the E-Ticket Pool at the Disneyland Hotel during your visit, Constance. You can choose between two Monorail-themed water slides-- the 180-foot-long Monorail Red slide and the 80-foot-long Monorail Yellow slide are both replicas of the original Mark 1 Monorail trains that transported Guests between Disneyland Park and the Disneyland Hotel in the 1960s!

    I hope this information helps you plan your stay, Constance. Have a wonderful vacation at the Happiest Place on Earth, and please feel free to ask us more questions as your pixie-dusted planning continues!

    Wishing you magic,
