  • Grand Californian Private Entrance to CA

    Hi, group!

    How strictly is the "guests only" policy enforced at the private entrance to CA from the GC? Would love to self-park there and go into the park that way. Also, can one exit the park there to eat at one of the GC restaurants and then reenter, or must non-guests go all the way around to the front again after the meal?

    THANKS!!!

    I wouldn't call it private. I use it here and there and never stayed a day in the hotel

      I have heard that it is more controlled early in the AM, but I don't have first hand experience of that.

      However, I have used it to exit DCA, go eat in the GC, then go back in that way.

      I've also used it when I may arrive later in the day, eat in the GC, then enter there.

        I have used it many times, granted not in the early AM, but they have never questioned me using it.

          Same with us.

          Never questioned about where we came from.

          We just go through the entrance and enjoy DCA!

            Afraid that I'm not adding anything new. I've only used it in the mornings when we've stayed at GCH.

            But have used it several times to eat at Whitewater usually for lunch.

              The only times they've "carded" me at that entrance is in the morning. Other times they've haven't asked to see my hotel I.D.

                When I stayed a few years ago, they seemed to check Id's alot more than they do now. At various times of the day, they were asking for ID.

                When I stayed in January of this year, it looked like a normal entryway. I even got by in the morning without showing ID. Perhaps crowds may have something to do with it?

                  Maybe we can all change our posts to reflect that you CANNOT go in without valid hotel cards. After all, we don't want to mess up a good thing...

                    We use it almost every trip to either get to or return from DTD. My understanding is any guest can use the entrance after going trough a main gate turnstile first but only GCH guests can use the gate for their first entry into the park. Could be wrong but that's how it was explained to us by the CMs at the GCH.

                      Noon is typically the starting time for non-hotel guests entry.

                        Are we allowed to use it if we're staying at PP or DLH (early in the AM)?

                          Same here. I go to the GCH to cool off during hot days at the park, and use their restrooms, etc.

                            I used it in April every morning and I was staying at PP. They just checked to make sure that I had a resort hotel room key.

                              Yes it is usually around noon, that you cen re enter there. The lunch time generally. If you try in the morning they will not let you in. After noon you are ok.
