    Do you need to be staying at a Disneyland hotel in order to take advantage of the early park admission to attend an early morning dining reservation at The Plaza Inn?

    Hi Lizzie – thank you for your question!

    You will have an incredible time dining with Minnie and Friends at the Plaza Inn. Not only will you get to eat delicious noms like the famous Mickey Waffles, but you will also experience magical moments with some beloved Disney characters.

    If you have a reservation right when the park opens, no worries. Whether you are staying in a Disneyland Resort Hotel or not, guests are usually allowed to enter the park approximately 30 minutes before the park opens. You will not be able to enjoy any attractions at that time, but you can do a bit of shopping on Main Street, U.S.A. for a few minutes before heading to the Plaza Inn for your reservations.

    One store on Main Street, U.S.A. I recommend to everyone is Crystal Arts. I think all the items in that store are beautiful, and there is even the option to get some customized if you like.

    Enjoy your meal and have a magical time at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Happy planning,
