Im sure this has been mentioned but I was having trouble finding exactly what I wanted to know. Staying at paradise pier I know you cant enter CA adventure through the grand entrance but can you walk through the hotel to get to downtown disney? Im having trouble telling which streets connect making the shortest trip to the parks from this hotel. Thanks!

Don't think you can go to CA through grand Californian any more.

You can walk anywhere in the grand valid but cannot use the special entrance into CA. Grand calif not valid. Sorry We went t into restaurants and then went into downtown Disney thru the security in grand calif hotel. Hope that helps

we found that going out the "side door" and through downtown disney to monorail entrance to park was the v quickest route. :) ask a staff member they will point you in the right direction .

I've seen a YouTube video about what DisneyQueen805 mentioned and according to the video even if you walk to the main entrance through down town disney it's faster.

Deathbythebay when you come out of the elevators turn right and go all the way to the exit this is how you get towards disneyland hotel and downtown disney entrance

So is the entrance to CA only for Grand guests now, wasn't it for all hotel guests before?

They changed it so that side entrance is strictly for Grand Californian guests only

The walk is actually 14-16 minutes walking at normal pace. We timed it a few times out of curiosity. Wouldn't stay there again as the walk is quite long especially after a long day in the parks.

At the end of the day you can cut through Grand Californian Hotel which saves time and steps.

No you can't cut through the Grand Californian, only guests of the GC can.

You can enter from DTD and cut through GCH at the end of the day, just can’t enter via front doors.

So I was there in November, and happened to be staying in the grand, but they never asked for my room key going into or leaving through the hotel entrance. Has anyone else had a different experience recently?

DisMom, we were at the GC for 4 days for Halloween and you can always leave through the hotel entrance from DCA but the DCA entrance is guests only until a certain time(mid-morning/afternoon). I’m not an early person but my son and husband had to show room keys for early entry and early morning entry at the DCA entrance.

Ok I see. I guess I never went in that way before late morning so that would explain it!

It has been my experience you can always exit through DGC. We also have always been able to use the entrance to DCA no matter where we stayed as long as you were in the hotel via a reservation etc. that being said- it is about a mile Walk to the park from PP because they will not let you cross to use DGC even though you are resort patrons. It is almost enough to dissuade me from PP, however; I think it is a charming hotel and still closer than any non-resort hotels. It is about a 15-18 minute walk.

I love being able to catch the monorail. It’s so fun and a huge shortcut
