    What time do the security checkpoints open at The Grand California for early entry?

    Hiya, Eleanor! Welcome to planDisney.

    Based on your question, I imagine you are staying at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. How exciting! You will love this Disneyland Resort Hotel's cozy rooms, luxurious amenities, and the proximity to the Theme Parks. One of my favorite features of this hotel is the private entrance to Disney California Adventure Park, which makes entering the park for Early Entry that much easier.

    Early Entry, allows Guests who are checked in and staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels to enter 30 minutes early to a designated park every day of their stay to enjoy select attractions, dining, and shopping. Be advised that valid theme park admission and a park reservation for the same park on the same date are also required. When planning your morning, keep in mind that all security checkpoints throughout the resort begin operating around 7:00 a.m.

    Tip: To take advantage of early entry, you must demonstrate that you are a Guest of the Disneyland Resort Hotels. Be ready to provide proof of your stay through your physical hotel key or via your Disneyland App.

    I hope you find this helpful, Eleanor. I wish you the happiest stay at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

    Your Pal,
