    I have Character Dining breakfast reservations at Minnie & Friends at 8am, do I have to have the Early Magic Hour ticket to enter the park so I can make it to my reservation on time? I do not want to be charged if I don't make the reservation.

    It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you to planDisney. Now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair as we proudly present your answer!

    Tasha, don’t worry about anything! There’s usually a separate entrance for Guests with dining reservations before park opening times. You’ll just want to make sure that you are at the Disneyland Resort with enough time to make it through security and arrive at the entrance. I always like to give my family anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour to arrive. It’s enough of a cushion in case someone needs to use the restroom or we want to stop for a quick picture at the main entrance.

    I’m so excited for you to enjoy breakfast at the Plaza Inn. There’s nothing better than a full belly and a day spent at The Happiest Place on Earth. Don’t forget to save room for a Mickey-shaped snack later in the day!

Hi ya Pals! I'm Shantel from Arizona. I am a mom of two and a military wife. I grew up going to the parks, and now we're sharing that tradition with our kids. When I am not visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, I'm at home researching and planning for our next trip! One of my favorite things to do is search for new snacks to try, especially if they are Mickey shaped. I'm definitely living the dream my heart wished for! I cannot wait to answer your questions and help make your vacation even more magical! Learn More About Shantel
