    Excited for our first trip to DL!! We were hoping to dine at Ariel's Grotto, which is currently closed. Do you know if it will reopen before we arrive and if so, how can we make a dining reservation since it's no longer listed online?

    Hi Emily!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited you will be vacationing at the Happiest Place on Earth. I'm sorry to inform you that Ariel's Grotto Restaurant has permanently closed to make way for a brand new dining experience on Pixar Pier called Lamplight Lounge. This new eatery will focus on gastro-pub cuisine like the famous Lobster Nachos and opens in late June. While there are not currently any Princess dining options, I would recommend some of the other Character Dining experiences, such as The Minnie & Friends - Breakfast in the Park at Plaza Inn. This is currently the only Character Dining option that is located inside one of the parks. You can book these reservations online, on the Disneyland mobile app, or by calling (714) 781-3463.

    If Princesses are a priority, you won't want to miss spending some time in Fantasy Faire in Disneyland Park. Here you can meet and greet Princesses at Royal Hall, see them perform at the Royal Theatre, and then have your child transform into one at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Over in Disney California Adventure Park, you can meet your favorite friends from Frozen as well as watch a stunning live theatre production of this film, included with your park admission. It is not to be missed!

    I hope this helps, and please feel free to return if you need a little extra pixie dust sprinkled on your vacation. Have a magical day!
