    We have reservations for the character breakfast at the Storyteller's Cafe. Can we use the entrance at the Grand Californian to get into DCA when we are done? Gates open at 9, and we think we'll be done around 9:15 or so.

    Good day, John! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Eating Mickey-shaped waffles at Storytellers Cafe sounds like the perfect way to start your day at “The Happiest Place on Earth!” I confirmed with a Cast Member that as long as you have your receipt from your dining experience at Storytellers Cafe, you can use the Grand Gate entrance into Disney California Adventure Park without being a registered guest of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. A valid admission ticket for Disney California Adventure Park is also required.

    Your trip to Disney California Adventure Park could not come at a better time! The Lunar New Year Celebration is in full swing! You’ll have a chance to enjoy Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession, sample Asian-inspired cuisine at the food booths and celebrate the Year of the Mouse with the main mouse himself! Mickey and Minnie will welcome you to the celebration dressed in their vibrant holiday attire. Enjoy ringing in the New Year at the Disneyland Resort!

    Please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions!

Meet the Panelist: Tiffanie, California

Greetings from San Diego, CA! I'm a wife, cat mom and Disney-loving "childfree millennial." I've traveled all around the world, but my favorite place to visit is "The Happiest Place on Earth!" I've been going to the Disneyland Resort for over 25 years. Each time I step through the turnstiles to enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy, I feel the magic of Walt Disney's original park. I can't wait to answer your questions and help you experience all that the Disneyland Resort has to offer! Learn More About Tiffanie
