    Hello, I have an upcoming 2-day visit to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure and we're staying 1 night at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel. My question is if we can park our car at the hotel the morning of our reservation?

    Hiya, Liliana!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so happy that you found us hEAR!

    Oh Boy! I know you must be getting so excited for your upcoming Disney days during the most wonderful time of the yEAR! Be sure to check out the Disney Parks Blog as they've put together so many great lists of what you can expect to see and eat at Disneyland Resort during the holidays. And speaking of Holidays, be sure to try some tasty dishes at the Disney Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure Park! (In fact, hEAR's a Foodie Guide to the Festival of Holidays!)

    I'm very happy to share that when you're a Guest at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, while you may have to vacate your guest room at a certain time, you're welcome to enjoy the rest of the amenities for your full check-in and check-out day, which includes parking your car in the hotel parking lot. You're also more than welcome to use the fitness facilities and swim in the pool on your check-out day as well! 

    Bonus Tip: Did you know that a backdoor entrance to Disney California Adventure Park recently opened? Even better, it's exclusively for the Guests staying at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel! It's pretty much directly across Disneyland Drive from the front of the hotel and will allow you to enter and exit the park by Corn Dog Castle, which is next to Goofy's Sky School. There's even a dedicated bag check hEAR, too! Simply keep your room key on your check-out day if you wish to use this still-sort-of secret side entrance, and you'll be onto the fun even faster!

    I hope that this helped to better plan your upcoming Disney days, Liliana! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
