Thank you, I haven't seen anyone mention that they had a reservation for pre park opening for that restaurant, so I'd thought I would ask the experts . Thank you again for your help.

I'm wondering if they don't tend to do pre-park reservations because the restaurant isn't close to the entrance gates. Which means you would have guests wandering thru the parks. They would need to assign CM's to walk people all the way to the restaurant.

Quick Plaza Inn question - apologies if this has already been answered.

I'm 55 days out from our trip, and thinking about which day to schedule a character breakfast.

If a) park hours haven't been officially announced and b) our media won't include early entry, what should I try to book? If our reservation is before park opening, will they let us in anyway?

Call dining and they can tell you earliest reservation available. You can still go on a MM day with a reservation even if you don't have the privileges. For example if early entry is at 7 then you can book a 710.

When do you think would be a good time to book Surfs up Breakfast?

The plan is to do Surfs Up on our last day, we won't be going into the parks that day but have some hours to burn before our flight leaves. It will be a group of 10 if that matters.

I don't have first hand experience with this, but our MM entry was a mess with most of the CMs having no idea what was going on. I would guess that it would use up your MM.

Goofy's Dinner

Just booked Goofy's for dinner 4/1/13. $38 per adult, 2 and under free if eating off paying adults plate per Disneyland Dining so that helps a little. Also since my daughter will be turning 3 at the end of that week she will get a bday cupcake

One question: has anyone had experience with food allergies ( particularly gluten allergy/ sensitivity) at the character meals? Our daughter has a gluten sensitivity (not celliac, she can tolerate small amounts of gluten). We've done several character meals at WDW and had great experiences with the chefs there, in particular at Ohana, where she got her own platter of GF Mickey waffles! I would expect DL will be similarly accomodating, but if anyone can share their experiences, that would be great!
Not sure if this was answered yet or not but I have a gluten issue as well and they will make you gluten free waffles or pancakes if you like - I found there was so much else to eat though that I did not need this done.

Thank you, called today to make other reservations and a CM confirmed.

I tried making a reservation for dinner at AG and was told the latest reservation for the time we're there (5 days) is 4:00. Is that normal or should I call back closer to the trip and see if they have opened it up for dinner?
