    Hi! I plan to be in Disneyland on Dec 6. Is this the day of the official Christmas Parade? If so, will I be able to get into the park that day? I'm staying at the Sheraton. Do any character breakfasts allow you into the park early? Thank you!

    Dear Julie,
    I'm very excited to know you'll be at Disneyland in early December!
    Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are truly magical and if you visit Disney's California Adventure, you'll have a chance to experience Holiday foods and traditions from around the world!
    As long as you have valid Theme Park tickets, you should have no problem visiting the Park on December 6.
    The Christmas Fantasy Parade will certainly be cruisin' down Main Street, U.S.A. with plenty of holiday cheer when you visit. Just make sure you visit the Disneyland website a few weeks before your trip to get parade times and plan your day accordingly.
    In terms of breakfast with your favorite Disney characters, guests have a choice of booking a character dining experience at either the Plaza Inn inside Disneyland or Ariel's Grotto inside Disney's California Adventure. If you're able to book a reservation before the Parks open, you'll be allowed inside the Parks at the time of your early morning reservation, as long as you have a valid Theme Park ticket and the Cast Member can confirm your reservation from a list they'll have on hand, for that particular day.
    Just make sure to make your dining reservations up to 60 days in advance and you should have no problem.
    I hope this helps!
    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    Have a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious time!
