    We are staying at the Grand Californian in a few weeks to attend Mickey's Halloween Party. Do you have a recommendation on the simplest way to enter the party from the Grand Californian?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Darcie!

    You are going to adore staying at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa! You will be just a few steps from both parks and even have access to an exclusive entrance directly into Disney California Adventure Park from the hotel. Your Mickey's Halloween Party ticket grants you entry to both parks three hours prior to the start of the party, so you have two options of getting to the party from your hotel.

    1. You can start your evening in Disney California Adventure Park by entering through the special entrance from the hotel which is located between Napa Rose and White Water Snacks. After enjoying the eerie and mysterious Halloween decorations on Buena Vista Street, including the statue of the Headless Horseman, and taking in the complete Haul-O-Ween overlay of Cars Land, you can hop on over to Disneyland Park through the main gates for the party.

    2. If you want to go directly to Disneyland Park, you will use the entrance to the Downtown Disney District from Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. This entrance is located between Anna and Elsa's Boutique and Sephora. Then you'll turn right and take a very short stroll to Disneyland Park. Simple as that!

    No matter where you want to go, you will be moments away from all the action when you stay at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. Have a spooktacular time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
