    Planning to dine at storytellers cafe. I’m confused about theme park reservations. Which park gives easiest access to the storytellers cafe? I want to book it on a day that we are at the correct park for easy access. We are staying best western park place

    Hiya Tracy,

    Welcome to planDisney! Planning is key when it comes to having the best day at Disneyland Resort. Like you, I like to plan my trips to make everything as seamless as possible!

    Storytellers Café is such a beautiful dining location. The California Craftsman style of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa is stunning, and who can pass up the delicious food offerings? If you are looking to plan your itinerary to be steps away from Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, then you will want to have a Park Reservation for Disney California Adventure Park. That said, I just returned from a visit to Disneyland Resort, and Guests of any of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels can use the dedicated entrance near Grizzly River Run, which typically makes Disney California Adventure Park the best choice. Since you are staying off-site, I wouldn’t worry if you can’t get a Park Pass Reservation for Disney California Adventure Park. Both Theme Parks are so close together that the distances to Storytellers Cafe are about equal. When I did the walk myself, I found that it didn’t take me any longer to get to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa from Disneyland Park than Disney California Adventure Park if I wasn’t using the special resort-Guest entrance.

    I hope this was helpful, Tracy! Before I let you go, if you have space in your itinerary, be sure to spend a little time walking around the lobby of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. They have an impressive display for the Disney100 Celebration made of cake in the lobby! The entire property is so peaceful and has impeccable intricate details that it is worth exploring.

    Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
