    Hi, my family is soon making it's first visit to Disneyland. If I book character dining breakfast with Minnie - can you enter the park before regular opening regardless of the time of your dining booking? Or only at the booked time?

    Hello, Jacinta! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question!
    Dining at the Plaza Inn for the Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park is a great choice! This is my very favorite character meal at the Disneyland Resort. I love the location and the many options at the buffet, but it’s the amazing character interaction that I can’t stop gushing about! Every time I dine here, I meet around 10 different and pretty unique characters! When you make a reservation at this restaurant for a time before Disneyland Park officially opens for the day, you will be let in to the park early in order to make it to your reservation. If your reservation time is for park opening or later, then you will enter the park normally when it opens for general admission.
    If you do happen to secure a pre-park opening reservation, you will want to arrive at the Disneyland Park gates early. The very far left gates will have a sign for Character Dining. You will wait here for a Cast Member who will have a list of early breakfast reservations that day. It’s a good idea to have your reservation confirmation number on-hand just in case. Once you are checked in, a Cast Member will escort you to the restaurant to enjoy your meal.
    Please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have. Have a fabulous meal at the Plaza Inn!
