    I made a DL resv in Oct at Plaza inn for 8:10 am. While hours for that day haven’t been released yet I’m thinking it’ll be 9am with 8-9 being magic hours. I will not have access to that so will I be admitted in with resv or do I need to make later?

    Hi there, Kristi!

    I am so happy to hear that you booked a Character Dining reservation. “Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park” at Plaza Inn inside Disneyland Park is a great choice for a hearty, all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet of breakfast classics while visiting with Minnie and the gang. Be sure to bring along your camera and autograph book, and get ready to indulge in some Mickey-shaped waffles!

    You can definitely enter the park in time for your breakfast reservation, even if you aren't entitled to Extra Magic Hour or Magic Morning early admission. 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 breakfast reservations that day. You might also want to have your dining reservation confirmation number handy for when you check in.

    I hope this helps you plan, Kristi. Please send us more questions as you put the finishing touches on your pixie-dusted Disneyland Resort vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
