    We are annual passholders and are coming on Thurs March 1 for my granddaughters birthday. Disneyland opens at 8am but our reservations for Character dining is 7:50 at Plaza on Main Street. Can we enter for our reservation without additional fee?

    Hello, Karla! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question!

    I am so excited that you will be enjoying the Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park at the Plaza Inn for your granddaughter's birthday! This is my all-time favorite character meal and I just know you all are going to love it. On March 1, Disneyland Park will open a 7:00 a.m. for Magic Morning/Extra Magic Hour, but you will be able to enter the park early for your dining reservation even though you don't have access to the aforementioned early admission options. When you get to the Disneyland Park gates, look for a Cast Member that is stationed there specifically to check in Guests with dining reservations. They are usually located to the far left or right of the gates, or you can ask a Cast Member scanning tickets where you should go for your early breakfast reservation. You might want to have your dining reservation confirmation number handy just in case. 

    When you get to the Plaza Inn, you will check in for your reservation, take a picture with Minnie, pay for your meal, and then head in for a delicious breakfast with oodles of fun characters! The buffet has lots and lots to choose from and I suggest visiting each station just to get a taste of everything. Then the birthday girl will be delighted as all sorts of her favorite friends visit the table while you dine. So bring your camera and your autograph book!

    Wishing your granddaughter a happy birthday!
