    I have a reservation to storytellers cafe at 7:20 in the morning but I want to know how to get to it since I’m not staying at the grand Californian hotel

    Hi Jocelyn! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for sending us this great question. I'm always happy to help a fellow Coloradan! 

    How exciting that you're planning a Disneyland Resort vacation! I'm glad you were able to get an advanced dining reservation at Storytellers Cafe at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. There are a couple of options for arriving at this beautiful hotel if you are not staying there. If you will have a vehicle, you can drive to the hotel and complimentary 3-hour parking is included when you dine at Storytellers Cafe. The hotel will provide validation for this and current parking rates will apply if you stay at the hotel beyond three hours. If you will not have a vehicle or prefer not to drive, you can use a ride-share service. With either of these options, you will need to provide the name for the dining reservation at the gatehouse in order to enter the property. 

    If your visit happens to fall during the Holidays, be sure to make time to check out the incredible gingerbread display in the lobby! Our family loves to take in the amazing smell and we work together to find all of the hidden Mickeys! I highly recommend getting some Mickey-shaped gingerbread cookies to go too! They are so yummy!

    If you have more planning questions before you arrive at The Happiest Place on Earth, please visit us again at planDisney. You've got a friend in us and we would love to help!

    Happy Planning!
