    We are going to be at DL for my daughters birthday and want to book breakfast with Minnie at the Plaza Inn. Can we book an early breakfast even if we aren't planning on using our Magic Morning hours that day or would that be our Magic morning use?

    Hiya, Judith! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so excited to hEAR you’ll be celebrating your daughter’s birthday at the Happiest Place on Earth this spring… I can’t think of a better place to be!

    Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park is one of my favorite Character dining experiences at the Disneyland Resort! I’m happy to report that yes, you can book an early breakfast reservation prior to park opening even without using your Magic Morning. Here’s how it works: When you arrive at the Disneyland Park Main Entrance, look out for a Cast Member with a “Dining Reservations” sign. This Cast Member is typically located off to one side of the Main Entrance gates. Ask any Cast Member for help if you have trouble finding them. Once you find the appropriate Cast Member, they will confirm your reservation and allow you to enter Disneyland Park. Head straight to the Plaza Inn for your delicious breakfast event!

    After this special Character dining experience, it’s off to the park you go! Since you’ll already be at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., you’ll be one step ahead of the general public when the park officially opens. It’s a good idea to have a route mapped out ahead of time so you can cross off as many of your “must-do” attractions before the lines get longer. Once you’re about six weeks away from your arrival date, I recommend checking out the Entertainment Schedule so you can start planning out your Disney days.

    As for Magic Morning early admission, here’s how it works: Disneyland Resort Guests with valid 3+ day tickets are treated to one early admission to Disneyland Park for one full hour before the park officially opens. Magic Mornings are currently available at Disneyland Park on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. 

    I hope this information helps as you continue planning your daughter’s birthday adventures! Don’t forget to stop by City Hall for a complimentary birthday button!

    See ya’ real soon!
