    Hi. We are visiting Disneyland Park and we want to eat at storytellers cafe. Are we gonna have to purchase a ticket for the Disneyland California adventure park? Or is it possible to visit the restaurant without tickets to any of the parks?

    Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, Kimberly!

    When I saw your question about the Storyteller’s Cafe, my favorite restaurant at the entire Disneyland Resort, I knew I needed to answer your question and welcome you to planDisney! Character breakfasts are one of my favorite things to do at the resort. What’s great about character breakfasts is the characters come to you! I just love indulging in the scrumptious buffet of sweet and savory breakfast items, all while effortlessly interacting with beloved characters and capturing memorable photos.

    The Storyteller's Cafe is located in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. That means you don't need an admission ticket to the theme park if you just want to dine at the cafe. It's open to walk-in guests, which is super convenient. I personally love having this option to meet characters outside of the theme parks. It's like making it the highlight of the day without all the hassle of planning and packing for a whole day at the theme parks with the family. Earlier this month at Goofy’s Kitchen, my toddler got an epic 2-minute and 33-second hug from Minnie. My, oh, my what a wonderful day!

    Kimberly, I hope this information helps you continue to have a blast at The Happiest Place On Earth. Keep those questions coming! I’d love to share my favorite tips and tricks for visiting the Happiest Place On Earth with you and your crew. Just consider me your personal pixie dust sprinkler and feel free to message me directly for a quicker response next time. 

    You’ve got a friend in me,
