The Disneyland Resort officially reopened on April 30. It appears that the phased reopening is moving quickly! As we now have confirmation that Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will reopen on June 15, and dining is being brought back to the Grand Californian. In addition to dining returning Guests staying at the Grand Californian will have access once again to the exclusive entrance into Disney California Adventure.

Currently, the only exclusive entrance that Grand Californian Guests can take advantage of is the entrance to and from the Downtown Disney District. This is how current Guests have been able to get to and from their hotel to the theme park gates — by walking through Downtown Disney. So it is great that later this month Guests will once again be able to utilize the separate entrance to California Adventure Park.

Here is what Disney had to say in their announcement of this today:

Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is reopening popular dining locations Napa Rose and Storytellers Cafe for guests to enjoy while staying at the Disneyland Resort, and will be open to non-hotel guests as well. Starting May 28, 2021, guests can enjoy the warm, inviting ambiance at Napa Rose for in-person dinner. Known for its award-winning wine list, exemplary service and delectable dining, Napa Rose will feature both the prix fixe Vintner Menu and a la carte selections, where guests can savor wine country cuisine featuring dishes that honor California’s rich culinary bounty, artisan farmers and world-famous wine makers.

Guests can also enjoy hearty home-style favorites while dining at Storytellers Café, offering three-course meals for breakfast and dinner. Whether you’re hungry for an American Wagyu Burger or craving a classic Mickey Waffle, there’s something for everyone’s taste buds! Dining reservations are recommended and will be available for booking at a later date, so be sure to check back to the Disney Parks Blog or Disneyland.com. Character dining will not be featured at this time.

One other great feature that is returning May 28 to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is the special entrance to Disney California Adventure park for Disneyland Resort hotel guests who are visiting the park.**

All of this news is so exciting as we are continuing to see more and more of the Disneyland Resort reopen!
