    I booked a 920 breakfast reservation at Aerial Grotto. The park opens at 10am. How do I get in early?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Judie. Thanks for stopping by.

    Even though Disney California Adventure Park is listed to be open at 10 AM, the gate typically opens about 30 minutes prior. Guests can enter the park before the official opening time, but they will be stopped at a special roped off area. 

    When you arrive at the entrance of Disney California Adventure Park, present your dining confirmation information to the Cast Member at the gate. He or she will look up your reservation and provide you with instructions on where to go. Sometimes, there may be a Cast Member to escort your party to Ariel's Grotto for your Princess Breakfast Celebration.

    I hope this information is helpful for you. I wish you and your family a magical time at the Happiest Place on Earth, Judie. Please come back to visit us on the Panel if you have further questions.

    Sending you Pixie Dust,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
