    John Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We are arriving late from New York on 6/26 and 6/27 will be our travel recovery day. We have Park tix and reservations for 6/28 and 6/29. We would like to attend brunch at Goofy's Kitchen on 6/27. Can we or do we need a Park ticket?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, John! Thanks for stopping by with your great question.

    It sounds like you've got quite a packed schedule for your trip in June! I am happy to report that you can have brunch at Goofy's Kitchen without a theme park ticket on your travel recovery day. Situated inside the Disneyland Hotel, I think Goofy's Kitchen is one of the best character dining experiences at the Disneyland Resort. Advanced dining reservations are highly recommended and can be made online or inside the Disneyland Mobile App.

    John, there are some truly heavy hitters when it comes to dining at the Disneyland Resort, and so many great restaurants are outside the theme parks. Three of my recent favorites are Storyteller's Cafe, Great Maple Modern American Eatery, and Palm Breeze Bar - and each one is at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels.

    I know it can be hard to leave the fun of the theme parks, but I highly recommend venturing out to the Downtown Disney District and hotels for dining and shopping! The LEGO Store, Marceline's Confectionery, and World of Disney are some of my favorite places to shop while I'm there. Maybe one will be a new favorite for you!

    I hope this information for your visit, John. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I'd be happy to help!

    See you in the parks,
