    Staying at the Grand Californian and I’m hoping to take advantage of early entry to the parks. How will I know which days will offer early entry and can I switch park choices on my reservation if they don’t match up?

    Hi there Darya,

    Welcome back to planDisney - and specifically to the Disneyland Resort side! We're glad to hear about your upcoming visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, and thanks so much for your question!

    First, I'm thrilled to hear that you'll be staying the Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. It is such an amazing experience. I stayed there during a family trip around the Holidays and it was so cozy and relaxing.

    Besides being conveniently located, I also love that you can access the Early Entry option as part of staying at one of the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort. You really can fit a lot in those 30 minutes before the official park opening!

    Starting January 20, 2024, this benefit will be updated to include one designated park per day, but it looks like your visit falls before that. This means you'll be able to access whichever park that you have a park reservation for on that particular day. 

    However, I will add that modifying your theme park reservations is a piece of cake on the My Plans hub! This is a great spot in general to see and manage all the reservations for your visit. You'll see a list of each of the days of your trip on the bottom half of the page where you can quickly and easily edit your theme park reservations for that day.

    I hope that helps, Darya! Thanks again for your question and enjoy your visit to the Disneyland Resort.

    Have a Magical Day,
