    Not staying on property this go around, but going to eat @ White Water Snacks for breakfast before going into CA for the day. Not sure how it works when you aren't a resort guest, can we still use the entrance from Grand Californian to get into CA?

    Greetings, Samantha, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I’m so excited to hEAR about your upcoming Disneyland Resort vacation, and I'm thrilled that you’re planning on dining at White Water Snacks at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, it’s one of my favorite hidden gems! The menu has recently been revamped, and I’m hearing rave reviews about some of the new items on the menu. The Avocado Toast and Breakfast Burrito sound divine!

    The hotel's entrance into Disney California Adventure Park is exclusively for registered Guests of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Especially in the mornings when the park first opens, Cast Members are typically on hand to check for an active Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa hotel room key card. However, it can be up to the discretion of the Cast Member on duty if they’ll allow you to enter with a receipt from White Water Snacks. I’d recommend checking with the Cast Member before getting in the entrance line to see if they’ll allow it. Otherwise, you can head back through the hotel and through the Downtown Disney District to enter through the Disney California Adventure Park Main Entrance, which isn’t a far walk, either.

    I hope this information helps as you continue planning your dream getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    See ya’ real soon!
