    We are visiting the park on 9/16. I made a 7:10 reservation at the Plaza Inn, but the park does not open until 8:00. We are not staying at a disneyland hotel so we will not have extra magic hour. Will we be able to get in for our character breakfast at 7?

    Hi, Ashleigh! Thanks for bringing another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Yay! I am so excited that you have booked a reservation for the Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park at the Plaza Inn. This is my very favorite character meal at the Disneyland Resort! Be prepared to meet a whole bunch of your favorite Disney friends while enjoying the expansive and delicious breakfast buffet. When you arrive at Disneyland Park, look for a sign at the entrance for early dining reservations or ask a Cast Member taking tickets where you should go if you have a pre-park opening dining reservation. There is usually a Cast Member stationed at the entrance with a list of people who have breakfast reservations. You might want to have your dining reservation confirmation number on-hand, just in case, when you check in with that Cast Member.

    Once at the Plaza Inn, you will pay for your meal in advance and then it's time for some fun! Grab a tray and take your pick of Mickey waffles, ham, sausage, fresh fruit, made-to-order omelets, and so much more. Then, what seems like between every bite, a new character will appear at your table. While character line-ups vary and are always subject to change, the last time we were there we met Chip, Dale, Tigger, Pooh, Captain Hook, Rafiki, Max, Eeyore, and, of course, Minnie! Have those autograph books and cameras ready!

    I hope your trip to the Disneyland Resort is full of magic and memories!
