    if i reserve a 9am character meal at Arie's grotto how can i arrive on time with park opening at 9?

    Dear Kaija,
    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    I'm thrilled to know you'll be visiting the Disneyland Resort!
    The beauty of early morning breakfast reservations inside the Parks is that oftentimes you get to enter the Parks before opening hours!
    In your case, I would suggest arriving around 8:30am.
    When you get to the Disney California Adventure Park front gate turnstiles, there will be a Cast member with a list of guests with breakfast reservations.
    Once they're able to confirm your name, someone will escort you and your party to Ariel's Grotto right in time for your reservation.
    It's as simple as that!
    Don't forget to purchase a Disney PhotoPass+ in order to have keepsakes of all your memories captured with Ariel and her fellow Princess friends!
    Have a Magical time!
    -Anabel M.
