    We are staying at a Good Neighbor hotel on Harbor Blvd that is in walking distance to the parks. We have a breakfast reservation at Storyteller Cafe. What is the best way to get to the Grand Californian Hotel?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ellen! I am so happy that you will soon be visiting the Disneyland Resort!

    The best way for you to get to Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa would be to walk along South Harbor Boulevard until you reach the Disneyland Resort area. There is a walkway off of South Harbor Boulevard that will lead you into the esplanade area between the two parks. The security checkpoints are open early enough that you can access the hotel even if your breakfast is scheduled before the parks open. Continue through the esplanade and into the Downtown Disney District. You can then enter Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa through the entrance located between Anna and Elsa's Boutique and Sephora. From there, you will turn right to enter the hotel and then left to continue through and into the main lobby. Turn left at the lobby and proceed outside where Storytellers Cafe will be on your left. The hotel can be a bit confusing to navigate at first, but just look for signs or find a Cast Member who will be glad to show you the way.

    Also, it might be a good idea to study this map of the area so you know just where to go when you visit. The Disneyland app's map view will also show your exact location on the map to help you get around when you are at the Disneyland Resort. 

    I hope this helps! Have a wonderful breakfast and a fabulous visit to the Disneyland Resort!
