    I was wondering how people staying at Grand Californian hotel get to Disneyland for Disneyland magic hours from the Grand Californian hotel? Is there a short cut without walking all the way down crowded downtown disney?

    Hi, Nicole!

    Welcome, and thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    While there is a private entrance into Disney California Adventure Park exclusively for use by Guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, there isn’t an alternate entrance to Disneyland Park. The best way for you to enter Disneyland Park during Extra Magic Hours will be by exiting the lobby of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and passing through the Downtown Disney District into the theme park esplanade. The breezeway that leads out of the hotel and into the Downtown Disney District is near Studio Disney 365 and Sephora, which is just a short walk to the security checkpoint for the parks. 

    I hope this helps you plan, Nicole. Please visit me again with more questions as your pixie-dusted vacation approaches!

    Wishing you magic,
