    Hello we’re staying at Pixar hotel with hopper tickets I read that you get in 30 min early but you have to register on what park you want to go so if we registered to go to Disneyland can we cut through California adventure or do we have go around

    Hello and welcome back to planDisney, Frank!

    I'm thrilled that you are visiting the Disneyland Resort and staying at the Pixar Place Hotel! Did you know that it is the first fully Pixar-themed hotel in the United States? This hotel boasts many special amenities including a rooftop pool and a special entrance to Disney California Adventure Park located across the street from the hotel!

    I understand that you are interested in Early Entry at the Theme Parks. Each day, either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park will open 30 minutes early for Guests staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. As you referenced, you need valid theme park admission and a Park Reservation for the same park on the same date for the park that is open early. If Disneyland Park opens early, you won't be able to enter Disney California Adventure Park since it won't open early. However, once the parks officially open for all Guests, you can use Disney California Adventure Park as a "shortcut" to reach Disneyland Park.

    Tip: You can use the Disneyland App and MagicBand+ to enter the parks, check in at Lightning Lane entrances, and link your Disney PhotoPass photos!

    I hope this answers your question, Frank. I wish you the happiest and most magical visit!

    Your Pal,
