    I’m planning to visit Disneyland soon and have scheduled breakfast with Minnie at Plaza Inn in The Park. The reservation is for 8:30a, but I noticed the park doesn’t open till 9:00a. Do I need to purchase something for early admission?

    Hello, Kelly!

    Thanks so much for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am happy to hear that you booked a Character Dining experience during your vacation. “Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park” at Plaza Inn inside Disneyland Park is a wonderful choice for a hearty, all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet of breakfast classics while visiting with Minnie and the gang! Have those autograph books and cameras ready--you’re going to meet tons of your favorite Disney pals during the meal!

    When you arrive at the entrance to Disneyland Park, look for a sign at the turnstiles for early dining reservations or ask a Cast Member where to go if you have a dining reservation time that is prior to the official theme park opening. There is usually a Cast Member at the park entrance who has a list of Guests with early breakfast seatings that day. You might also want to have your dining reservation confirmation number handy when you check in, just in case.

    I hope this answers your question, Kelly. Please feel free to write back with more as you continue planning your pixie-dusted Disneyland Resort vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
