    Hello! We are staying at the Disneyland Hotel for an upcoming trip. To get to California Adventure, are we allowed to use the Pixar Place entrance that cuts around the side of the Grand Californian (the one that plops you out near Corndog Castle)?

    Hello there Pavel, thanks for stopping by planDisney with your great question!

    The Disneyland Hotel is one of my family's favorite places to stay during our trips.  My kids love the monorail waterslides and pool, and my husband and I love the dining options on-site, especially Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar!  I highly recommend grabbing one of their tropical drinks to unwind from a long day at the parks. 

    There is a hotel direct access entry gate to Disney California Adventure Park that will lead you right into Paradise Gardens Park.  It's so convenient if you want to experience Pixar Pier or nearby attractions like Goofy's Sky School.  You will need an active Disneyland Resort hotel reservation to access that special entrance.  There are times when those exclusive entrances may be restricted to those specific hotel Guests only, however, that is usually only during the busiest times of the day such as right when the park opens, or when a special event is taking place.  I would have your hotel key handy and ready to scan as you approach the entrance outside of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.  

    I'm wishing you and your family a wonderful trip, Pavel!  We are here to help with any other questions you may have, so don't hesitate to come back to planDisney in the future.

    Have a magical day!
