    Can non hotel guests of Grand Californian use the hotels dedicated entrance to DCA if they have a reservation for breakfast at Storytellers Cafe? Or will they have to exit the hotel and go around to the main DCA entrance after eating?

    Hiya Aria,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for choosing to kick off your planning journey with us! Speaking of beginnings, they say that " breakfast is the most important meal of the day," what better place to enjoy it than Storytellers Café? Before I had a little one, I wasn't always the biggest fan of Character dining, but now, you can't keep me from reserving one. I know you are going to have a yummy breakfast adventure!

    Aria, I reached out to a Cast Member, and the use of the Disney California Adventure Park entrance from Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is officially reserved for Guests of that resort. The Cast Members may ask for Guests' using that entrance to provide their hotel room key card for access to ensure only resort Guests are using it. Some of my panelists' friends have had experiences where they could use this entrance after enjoying their meals, but it is entirely up to the discretion of the Cast Member. I recommend planning to use the main entrance to Disney California Adventure Park just to be safe.

    I hope this was helpful, Aria. During your upcoming visit, do be sure to check out all of the spellbinding thrills and festive additions for fall. September 1st marks the kick-off to the spooky season, and I, for one, cannot wait. Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
