The list of benefits to staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel just got bigger. Finally, the last of what was a staple to staying on property at the Disneyland Resort is returning in 2022.

Starting August 8th, even more magic is returning for hotel guests — If you were comparing staying on- or off-property, more incentives are arriving to tip the scales. 

Not to mention, guests of all three on-property hotels can enjoy even more with summer pool parties and Early Entry into the parks

The old normal may be closer than you think. Pre-pandemic we had what Disneyland resort called “Extra Magic Hour” where each day Disneyland or Disney California Adventure Park offered a full hour of early entry into the park for hotel guests that showed their room keys.

It may not be a full hour, but beginning Aug. 8, all Disneyland Resort Hotel guests will have the benefit of being able to enter either park before standard ticket holders. “Early Entry” will be 30 minutes prior to each park’s daily opening hours, allowing guests to enjoy early access to select attractions, dining, and shopping.

Not only are all three hotels within close walking distance to the parks, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel guests now have a special entrance to Disney California Adventure Park just across from the hotel, near the park’s Seaside Souvenirs and Corn Dog Castle. Guests of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa enjoy entry to Disney California Adventure through their own special park entrance into Grizzly Peak! And guests at the Disneyland Hotel can hop aboard the Disneyland Monorail to be transported directly into Tomorrowland in Disneyland Park!

You will also be able to charge select Disneyland Resort shopping and dining purchases to your room using your digital key through the Disneyland app.

Special Fireworks Viewing

Open to all Hotel Guests, a great spot to watch fireworks is from the rooftop of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel!
