    we have reservations 7:10 AM Minnie & Friends. Park opens @ 8:00 AM how do we get in?

    Hey howdy hey, Barbara, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    I am SO excited for your upcoming visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! And I’m even more excited for your reservation at Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park! That’s definitely my favorite Character Dining experience at the Disneyland Resort. Not only are the Character interactions and food top-notch, but it’s the only Character Dining experience offered inside the Disneyland Resort theme parks. Nabbing a 7:10 AM reservation was a great idea, too, since it allows you early access into Disneyland Park for your reservation time. 

    So, here’s how it works: When you arrive at the Disneyland Park Main Entrance, there should be a Cast Member holding a sign for Dining Reservations. You can typically find this Cast Member located off to one side of the Main Entrance gates. If you have any trouble finding this Cast Member, simply ask any Cast Member at the Main Entrance gates where Guests with reservations should line up for entry. Once you find the appropriate Cast Member, they will confirm your reservation and allow you into the Disneyland Park, so you can head to the Plaza Inn for your scrumptious breakfast! 

    Once you’re done with your meal and meet-and-greets, it’s off to the park you go! You’ll already be at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., so you’ll be ahead of the game come 8:00 AM, when the park opens to the general public.

    Do you have your route mapped out for rope drop yet? I recommend checking out the Entertainment Schedule for your day of arrival so you can start planning now. You’ll have a good shot at crossing off many of your “must-do” attractions during the first two hours of park opening, so take advantage of this special time!

    I also recommend downloading the Disneyland app, which is a great handy helper for checking wait times, finding your favorite Characters, making dining reservations, and even mobile ordering food and drinks. The app is also the perfect tool for using Disney MaxPass, which allows you to make digital FASTPASS selections from your phone! 

    Wishing you a delicious breakfast and many magical adventures at the Disneyland Resort!
