    I was wondering if character sit down dining was available, and if so do we need reservations during our stay at the Grand Californian Hotel February 2nd through February 4th? Thank you!

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Chris! You’re as welcome as can be at planDisney. Oh boy, character dining is one of my favorite things to do at Disneyland Resort! Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is also my hotel of choice. We have a lot in common! 

    Chris, it is highly recommended to make dining reservations up to 60 days in advance, but if you don’t have a reservation, Hakuna Matata! You could still land a table to dine with your pals. 
    Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa offers two character dining choices right there at the hotel, but note both are breakfast only for character experiences. Mickey’s Tales of Adventure Breakfast Buffet at Storytellers Café is a favorite for our family. If you don’t have a reservation, you can use the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability option. You can scan the QR code at the restaurant entrance using the Disneyland mobile app. The hotel has such a pleasant outdoor area so maybe you wouldn’t mind hanging out there anyway while you await your table! Also at the hotel, Napa Rose offers Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures for a luxurious and delicious experience! 

    If you venture over to the Disneyland Hotel, Goofy’s Kitchen has a classic character dining option available for breakfast and dinner. Where else can you find Goofy’s original peanut butter and jelly pizza?! Same day reservations are limited but you might just get lucky – it’s worth checking at the host stand! 

    At Disneyland Park, Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park also has a character dining experience. Again, same day reservations can be challenging, but you might not mind hanging out on Main Street, U.S.A. as you await your table! 

    Since the parks reopened, the character experiences have been reimagined, to keep Guests and characters safe. To be honest, I like character selfies – I have many great photos with my character pals behind me! 

    I am envious of that special feeling you are going to get when you check in to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. The minute I enter the lobby, I am overcome with excitement and relaxation! 

    The magic awaits! Have a splendid vacation,
