    Staying at Grand Californian over Thanksgiving and want to take advantage of Magic Morning hours to see Cars Land. Should we enter through the main gates or through the Grand Californian entrance? Have heard lines in GC are very long to enter the park.

    Hi there Jennifer, 

    One of the biggest perks of staying at the Grand Californian is that awesome California Adventure entryway!  Honestly, I ALWAYS use that entrance during both Extra Magic Hour and regular park hours and have never had to wait very long.

    Even if there is a small line, it's usually less of a wait than walking all the way through Downtown Disney, through the esplanade and into the park!  If you arrive at the hotel entrance to find an obscene line, you can breathe a little knowing that you can easily reroute and head to the main California Adventure entrance if need be!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
