    We are staying at the Disneyland Hotel for an upcoming family vacation, is there an entrance for hotel guests only to with parks?

    "A dream is a wish your heart makes" Monica!  Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney.

    It is an absolute dream to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, it is one of my favorite hotels, every detail is just magical.  The stunning headboards in each hotel room are such a special touch, I'll never forget the way my kids' faces lit up the first time we stayed there!  

    At the current time, there is not an exclusive entrance into the theme parks for Guests staying at the Disneyland Hotel, but you will receive access to early entry during your visit!  Early entry is a a wonderful benefit for Guests who are checked in and staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels.  They are able to enter Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park 30 minutes before regular park opening to enjoy select attractions, dining, and shopping locations.  

    The early entry benefit will be updated starting on January 20, 2024, and Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests will be able to take advantage of early entry into a designated theme park for every day of their hotel stay.  You can check the theme park calendar for the schedule closer to your arrival date, but you'll definitely want to make sure that your theme park reservation lines up with whichever park has early entry that day.  It truly is our favorite benefit of staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, we usually can cross off several of our favorite attractions during those early morning hours!  

    Another tip I like to share is to bring a portable breakfast with you on your way to get in line for early entry.  It saves us some time in the morning, and it's a great way to pass the time while waiting for the gates to open!  We like to keep simple breakfast food in our hotel room such as cereal and granola bars.  

    I'm wishing you and your family the most magical visit, Monica!  If you think of any other questions we can help with, please come back and ask!

    Have a magical day,
