Disneyland Resort’s Early Entry Rules For Hotel Guests Changing In 2024

Disneyland Welcome Sign

Starting January 20, 2024, guests staying at any of the Disneyland Resort hotels will be changing the early entry benefit: only one park per day will be available for 30-minute early entry.

The early admission privilege is an exclusive benefit for guests who have valid park admissions and reservations and are checked into one of Disneyland Resort’s hotels. At present, guests staying at a Disney hotel are able to gain early entry into either Disneyland Park or Disney’s California Adventure.

This change means that hotel guests will need to check the theme park calendar for the schedule to know which of the two parks will be open 30 minutes early.

Starting January 20, 2024, the early entry benefit will be updated, and Guests with valid park admission and reservations who are checked in and staying at one of the Disneyland Resort hotels may take advantage of this 30-minute early entry into a designated theme park for every day of their hotel stay. Each day, either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park will be open early. Please check the theme park calendar for the schedule.

This policy alteration isn’t entirely unprecedented. Before the pandemic-induced shutdown in 2020, Disneyland Resort implemented a similar rule. However, back then, guests had the benefit of a full hour of early access to either of the two parks every morning.
