    We are staying at the Grand Californian in March 2022. I read that they previously offered an early entrance time into Californian Adventureland for guests staying in the Grand Californian. Any chance this will return in time for our trip?

    Hi Sarah!  Thanks so much for sending us another question here at planDisney! How exciting that you have a vacation planned at Disneyland Resort! I'm happy to help!

    Our family stayed at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa this past July and it's our favorite place to stay when visiting! While the Extra Magic Hour offering early entrance to the theme parks has been suspended at this time, things are constantly changing and I would recommend checking this page just before your arrival. The great news is that there are so many other great amenities you can look forward to at this gorgeous hotel! 

    One of our favorite benefits is the quick access to Disney California Adventure Park! It is so convenient to be just steps away from the magic and helps you maximize time riding attractions and eating all of the yummy snacks! If your family likes to take a mid-day break, it's easy to return to your hotel room!

    My best advice is to take advantage of the beautiful pools during your stay! Our family especially loves lounging by the Mariposa pool. I highly recommend grabbing lunch or dinner poolside at GCH Craftsman Grill. The Double-baked Nachos and Garlic-Soy-glazed Chicken Wings are not-to-be-missed!

    We also love to end the day in the majestic lobby, looking at our Disney PhotoPass photos taken in the theme parks and sharing our favorite moments of the day! 

    I'm so excited for you to Be Our Guest at The Happiest Place on Earth! Please visit me again here if I can answer any other questions.

    Happy Planning!
