    Hi, we have breakfast reservations at Storyteller’s Cafe at 7:00 a.m. and a park reservation for California Adventure. Will we be able to enter California Adventure through the Grand Californian hotel?

    Hello there, Janelle!

    A warm welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing us your terrific Disneyland Resort vacation planning question. I'm excited to hear you'll be visiting The Happiest Place on Earth soon and enjoying a meal at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa! My group of Mouseketeers gathered for a bountiful breakfast with Mickey and his pals at Storytellers Cafe earlier this year, and I have so many special memories from our meal there. Janelle, I'm here to help you prepare for your perfect Disneyland day!

    Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a cozy, rustic retreat for Guests weary from exciting days in the Disneyland Resort theme parks. Guests of this magnificent resort (as well as the other Disneyland Resort hotels) enjoy distinctly Disney theming and storytelling as well as exclusive benefits like early theme park entry! Janelle, at this time, the hotel direct access entry gate to Disney California Adventure Park is reserved for Guests staying at one of the Disneyland Resort hotels. For theme park entry via this gate, Guests must show confirmation of their hotel reservation as well as have valid theme park admission and a theme park reservation. Janelle, if you will be staying as a Guest at either Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Disneyland Hotel, or Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel (soon to be known as Pixar Place Hotel!), you can confirm your reservation with the Cast Members at the gate by showing them your resort information in the Disneyland Resort mobile app or by providing your hotel room key card.

    Alternatively, if you won't be staying at any of the Disneyland Resort hotels during your visit, I recommend using the main entrance to Disney California Adventure Park. This is my favorite way to access the theme park because it means you'll have the opportunity to wander down Buena Vista Street and soak in the sights and sounds of a magical land frozen in time! I always enjoy popping into Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe for a beverage on the way to my first attraction.

    I hope you've found this information helpful, Janelle. Enjoy your wonderful breakfast at Storytellers Cafe, your exciting day at Disney California Adventure Park, and every magical moment of your Disneyland Resort vacation! If you have any additional planning questions, you're always welcome to revisit us at planDisney. We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Happiest Place on Earth!

    See ya real soon,
