    Hello! We have a trip planned for September at the Pixar Place Hotel. Are the hours of operation for the private guest entrance into California Adventure park the same as the main gate? Thanks!

    Magical greetings, Carrie! I'm so happy to welcome you to planDisney and thank you for sharing this question with us. 

    Oh, Joy! You're going to absolutely love the newly reimagined Pixar Place Hotel for your next visit to Disneyland Resort. Everything from the color scheme, to the dining options, to the new pool deck has been so thoughtfully designed to help your family discover imaginative adventures inspired by Disney Pixar stories. It is such a fun and whimsical hotel property for Guests of all ages! Plus, one of the best parts is having access to Early Entry benefit, which allows Guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels admission to one of the theme parks 30 minutes before regular park operating hours for each day of your stay. You can check the Hours and Events Calendar to see the schedule for Early Entry admission. As a Guest of Pixar Place Hotel, you also have access to a private Guest entrance across the street, using your resort hotel key card! This entrance into Disney California Adventure Park will drop you right in the heart of Paradise Gardens Park and it's such a lovely way to start your day in the theme parks! 

    To answer your question, this private Guest entrance will operate on the same schedule as the other gates, and you'll go through security at that point. My friend and fellow panelist, Michelle R. recently shared a video summary of how this entrance works! I hope it's helpful to you. 

    If we can lend any other recommendations in the meantime, Carrie, I hope you'll feel welcome to stop by planDisney again. We're always happy to help a fellow Guest plan their most magical vacation ever!

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
