    Hello, we are scheduled to visit DL on 7/18. I made reservations at Ariel's Grotto for lunch wtih my 4 year old Princess. I am confused, where is Ariel's Grotto? What is the difference b/w DL & Disney Advent Park?

    Hi there Kristin,

    The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California is comprised of three unique resort hotels, Downtown Disney which is a dining and shopping district, and two theme parks: DIsneyland and Disney California Adventure Park.  

    Ariel's Grotto is located inside of the Disney California Adventure Park.  This park is separate from Disneyland Park, but the entrances are just steps away from one another.  In order to visit both Disneyland and California Adventure in the same day, you'll need to upgrade your park ticket to a Park Hopper which will allow you to bounce between the parks.

    Hope this clarifies things...if not, I'm here, so please feel free to write back!
