    We will be visiting Disneyland soon and have a reservation at the Grand Californian for the princess breakfast, but we are not lodging at that hotel. Can we access the hotel from the park or do we have to enter the hotel from the hotels’ front entrance?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Haley!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited for you to enjoy the decadent new experience, Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. This is truly a unique and unforgettable Character meal where you can have exquisite cuisine while your little ones can share in making memories with their favorite Princesses.

    While the dedicated entrance to Disney California Adventure Park from Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is intended for Guests of this hotel, I have not had any issues exiting the park to enter the hotel whether I was a hotel Guest or not. If you plan on re-entering the park from the hotel, you may be asked to show a hotel room key and therefore will need to head to the Downtown Disney District to enter the park from the main entrance. Although I cannot say for sure, I think Cast Members will be understanding at this entrance of the hotel if you let them know you have a dining reservation. I advise giving yourself at least 30 minutes when leaving the park just in case you need to utilize the Downtown Disney entrance. If you get to the hotel early before your reservation, I recommend taking some time to appreciate the amazing lobby of this hotel. There are so many stunning details here. Little ones will love the tiny rocking chairs and adults will love the grand fireplace and architectural details.

    Apart from fine dining, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa also boasts a wonderful Quick Service restaurant, White Water Snacks, that I highly recommend. Be sure to check out their "Hot Dog of the Month" which is a hidden gem in my opinion!

    I hope this helps, and I wish you a practically perfect vacation.
