    I have reservations for the character breakfast at ariels grotto at 9:00am, but the park doesn't open til 10:00am. How do we get in to go to the restaurant?

    Hi there, Jillian! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question!

    A meal at Ariel's Grotto is so much fun! I can still remember how my daughter's face lit up each time a princess made her way to our table. When you arrive at the gates of Disney California Adventure Park, look for a Cast Member with a clipboard or a sign that says dining reservations, or something similar. This Cast Member will confirm that you have a dining reservation, scan your theme park tickets, and you will be escorted to the restaurant to enjoy your meal. It's probably a good idea to have your dining reservation confirmation number on-hand just in case. When you arrive at Ariel's Grotto, you will meet Ariel upon entering and then a few of her regal friends will visit you while you eat breakfast. Make sure to have your camera and autograph book ready!

    I hope this helps. Have a wonderful meal at Ariel's Grotto and I hope your visit to the Disneyland Resort is full of magic and memories!
