    We are visiting Disneyland and California Adventure in November and would like to eat at White Water Snacks in the Grand Californian; however, we will not be staying at the Grand Californian. How do we enter the hotel to dine?

    Hello, Kristy! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am so excited that you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort next month!

    White Water Snacks in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat or to pick up some grab-n-go items to take with you. There are two ways that you can enter the hotel to get to White Water Snacks: 1) Enter through the Disney California Adventure Park entrance if you are visiting during park operating hours or 2) Use the entrance from the Downtown Disney District by Sephora. Sometimes the entrance to the hotel from Disney California Adventure Park is reserved for Guests of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa only (particularly in the morning). However, if you tell them you would like to dine at White Water Snacks, they should let you in. If you aren't able to use this entrance, then the Downtown Disney District entrance is just a short walk away. You will always be able to enter the hotel from the Downtown Disney District entrance. In fact, I used it several times on a recent visit to the Disneyland Resort when I was staying at the Disneyland Hotel.

    I hope this helps! Please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again with any other questions you may have!
