    I'm looking at the GCH Craftsman's Bar at the Grand Californian for breakfast. The listing does not give breakfast hours nor is there a place to reserve breakfast times. Is this a walkup or how do I go there for breakfast?

    Hey there, Arlene! Welcome back to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with another great question!

    I'm so excited to see that the magic is calling you, and you are answering the call by planning a magical adventure at The Happiest Place on Earth. And since you plan on dining at GCH Craftsman Bar at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, it sounds like your planning is off to a practically perfect start. The Craftsman Bar is one of my favorite spots to kick my feet up and grab a great cocktail and an incredible meal while taking a break from the theme parks. Let's chat about starting your Disney day with a delicious breakfast!

    I see what you are saying, Arlene! After doing a quick search, I see that the operating hours (typically 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.) and Advance Dining Reservations for breakfast at GCH Craftsman Bar are only available through July 19, 2023, at this time. However, the breakfast hours and reservations may have just not been released yet. I suggest keeping an eye on the Disneyland website or app to check if the breakfast hours and Advance Dining Reservations open up before your trip. I'll be wishing upon a star that breakfast at Craftsman Bar is sticking around!

    Hakuna Matata, Arlene! It means "no worries." Even if breakfast is no longer going to be offered at Craftsman Bar, you can find a delicious breakfast at GCH Craftsman Grill. And since this is a Quick Service dining location, no Advance Dining Reservation is required. Just walk right up and enjoy! While the restaurant's hours for your pixie-dusted vacation have not yet been released, they are typically 6:45 a.m. to 10:00 or 10:30 a.m. That Brioche French Toast is calling my name! YUM!

    I hope this helps, Arlene, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time, full of food and fun! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have.

    You've got a friend in me,
