    Hello! What is the walk time from Paradise Pier to the Disneyland park entrance, please? Can we still access the park by walking through the Grand Californian or did that change per COVID protocols? We chose an on-campus hotel for quick park access. Thx!

    Hey Ramona!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    You’re going to love your next stay at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa! I visited a few weeks ago and had the most amazing stay! I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I was there. You’ll be happy to hear that guests staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa can still enter and exit Disney California Adventure Park using the private entrance. Whenever I visit, I love to grab a drink from the Hearthstone Lounge and relax at one of the fireplaces or in the Lobby while listening to the piano play. If you need a drink recommendation I highly recommend the Blood Orange Margarita or the Ultimate Long Island Iced Tea.

    One of things I love the most about the Disneyland Resort is how close the parks are to each other. It makes park hopping a breeze! Remember, if you purchased a Park Hopper Ticket, you can enter the next park starting at 1:00pm. If you were at Pixar Pier and wanted to head over to Disneyland Park, it would take about 10-15 minutes depending on how fast you walked. 

    Well Ramona, if you need anything else for our trip just let us know!

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
