    If we are staying in the Paradise Pier hotel and want to use the new entrance to CA Adventure, do we have to have to select that park for morning entrance with park hopper tickets? What if we have Disneyland only tickets for one day?

    Hi there, Amanda!

    Ooh! I’m so excited for you. I just booked our next stay at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel for an upcoming vacation as well. Besides the cool beach theming, the affordable pricing and the proximity to the Disneyland Resort theme parks are reasons that Paradise Pier Hotel is one of our favorite places to stay when we visit The Happiest Place on Earth! And soon, there will be even more amazing benefits available to Guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels.

    The new entrance to Disney California Adventure Park exclusively for Guests of Paradise Pier Hotel is definitely one of the reasons we selected this hotel for our next stay. To make use of this entrance in the morning, each Guest must have their hotel key, valid theme park admission, and a theme park reservation for Disney California Adventure Park. Paradise Pier Hotel Guests with Park Hopper tickets starting their day at Disneyland Park may use this entrance after Park Hopping hours begin at 1:00 PM.

    For access to the new entrance, Guests will exit the main hotel entrance on the east and traverse the pedestrian crosswalk at the nearby street corner with the traffic light, walking toward Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. The sidewalk along the automobile entrance to the Grand Californian Hotel has two gates: one to the Grand Californian and one that goes to the new entrance to Disney California Adventure Park. Use your room key to unlock the gate and proceed to the security area and the park entrance between Corn Dog Castle and Seaside Souvenirs in Paradise Gardens Park.

    For access to Disneyland Park, Guests of Paradise Pier Hotel may exit the west hotel entrance facing the parking garage. Then, follow the sidewalk toward the Disneyland Hotel. The sidewalk outside the Disneyland Hotel grounds leads north to the security checkpoint on the west end of the Downtown Disney District. From there, you may enjoy a short walk through the District to the main entrance of Disneyland Park. Or stop at the Disneyland Monorail station for a futuristic ride into Tomorrowland.

    Tony's Tip: Be sure to take advantage of the many hotel amenities available to you. That includes the Direct-to-Room Service that lets you bypass the Front Desk by checking in using the Disneyland mobile app. Your app can act as your room key as well! If you still wish to use a physical Key to the Magic Card, feel free to stop by the Front Desk, even if you have already started your stay with the in-app digital key.

    Have a magical time, Amanda!
