Ranking the Disneyland Character Dining - Including the New Princess Breakfast!

by Mommy Frog on April 4, 2019 49 Los Angeles

Guide to Disneyland Character Dining - PinterestA visit to the Disneyland Resort means balancing your schedule with rides, meals, shows and character meet and greets. Why not multi-task and knock out several character interactions while you enjoy a meal? If you want to meet a gang of Disney characters without waiting in line for each one or seeking them out in the parks — some are always on the move! — then character dining allows you to fuel up while letting the characters come to you.

There are five restaurants that offer character meals at the Disneyland Resort, one or two in each Disneyland Resort hotel and one at Disneyland Park. All of them offer character breakfasts, plus Storyteller’s Café has a daily brunch, Disney’s PCH Grill has brunch Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and Goofy’s Kitchen offers a character dinner. The newest character dining location, the Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures, offers a three-course meal that includes both breakfast and brunch food options (as well as decadent desserts). Lily says get your tiaras, princess dresses and sparkles on for this newest princess option!

Disneyland Character Dining — Tiana

We are hoppy that there is once again a princess breakfast among the Disneyland character dining choices because we have been missing the royal treatment ever since Ariel's Grotto at Disney California Adventure closed. That restaurant — along with the upstairs Cove Bar — was converted into the super cool Lamplight Lounge! It has great food, but it is no longer a character dining location, and there is no character dining inside California Adventure. The new Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures takes place at Napa Rose in the Grand Californian hotel, right next to the park. So how do you choose the right experience for you? We’ve hopped about Disneyland Resort to get the scoop on each of them (the things we do in the name of research!) and share our best tips so you get the most from your Disneyland character dining.

Here Is How Each of the Disneyland Character Dining Options Stack Up!

Disneyland Character Dining - Fairy Godmother at Plaza Inn

Disneyland Character Dining - Chip at Plaza Inn1. Minnie & Friends — Breakfast in the Park, Plaza Inn at Disneyland Park

The Plaza Inn is located right in the heart of Disneyland on Main Street U.S.A. You can dine inside or outside in Victorian style. What we love about this character breakfast is that the character selection is the most diverse of the Disneyland character meals, and you’ll find the most characters at one meal — usually about eight (while some others have only four in comparison). You’ll meet Minnie Mouse and perhaps other characters such as Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Fairy Godmother, Captain Hook, Chip, Dale, Rafiki and special guests who hop on by since they are in the park. You could encounter a rare treat like Piglet, Pinocchio, Max or some other surprise.

They offer a breakfast buffet with traditional breakfast items like cereal, scrambled eggs, French toast, omelets, sausage and those froglet-favorite Mickey waffles. They have an omelet station. If you have an allergy and are struggling with the buffet, you can talk to the chef, who may be able to whip up a special dish for you. The only downside is that you do need to pay for park admission to access this Disneyland character meal. Adult buffet meals are $34 and children ages 3 to 9 are $19 plus tax and gratuity. Breakfast hours vary per day, and the restaurant may be open during Magic Morning and Extra Magic Hour. There is a separate park entrance open for character dining. Breakfast ends at 11:00 a.m. The last seating is at 10:40 a.m., and they start removing the breakfast food at 11:30 a.m.

Not-So-Goofy Guide to Disneyland Character Dining (Plus Tips!) - Daisy Duck

2. Donald Duck's Seaside Breakfast and Brunch at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel

The surf is always good at the Paradise Pier Hotel! Check in for California-themed character breakfast or brunch, and get quackin' with Donald Duck. Take photos and share a moment with him at his surf shack. While you enjoy your food at the buffet, Daisy and Stitch will come by your table. One of the most unique parts of this Disneyland character dining meal is that a couple of times per hour, Donald's pals join him to dance and invite all the kids to dance with them. This makes a great breakfast for tadpoles who like to get up and shake the wiggles out. Plus, they will get to share a lot of one-on-one time with the characters. This character dining option does offer the smallest selection of Disney characters, but is also pretty sweet and more relaxing than some of the bigger ones.

Disneyland Character Dining - PCH Grill at Paradise Pier Hotel

At breakfast, you’ll find Minnie pancakes, Mickey waffles and grilled peanut butter and banana with chocolate–stuffed French toast at the children’s buffet. Most of the buffet food served at PCH Grill is very similar to the food served at the other hotel breakfast buffets — scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, smoked salmon, egg white frittata, omelet station, parfait yogurt, fruits and pastries. There are only four characters to meet at this character meal, but Stitch is definitely not someone you get to hang out with in the parks so you might enjoy stepping into alien territory to meet him.

At brunch on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you’ll still see some popular breakfast items (we’re thinking about you, Mickey waffles), along with lunch specials like pasta, pizza, rotating seasonal offerings and dessert. Be sure to save some room for beignets, bread pudding and mini pastries!

Breakfast runs from 7 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and until 11:25 a.m. Friday through Sunday. Breakfast is $39 for adults and $23 for kids (ages 3 to 9) plus tax and gratuity. Brunch is served from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Friday through Sunday only, and costs $42 for adults and $23 for kids.

Disneyland Character Dining - Goofy's Kitchen

3. Breakfast and Dinner at Goofy’s Kitchen in the Disneyland Hotel

Step into Goofy’s Kitchen to be greeted by your host, Goofy, for some hugs, fun and photos! After being shown to your table, grab a plate and hit the buffet. At breakfast, which offers some brunch selections, as well, you’ll find some traditional scrambled eggs, eggs Benedict, pastries, bacon, sausages, Mickey pancakes, yogurt, fruits and Mickey waffles, as well as salad, egg white veggie frittatas, made-to-order omelets, smoked salmon, sautéed veggies, chicken nuggets, mac and cheese and pizza. Pizza? Not just pizza, but also silly pizza such as peanut butter pizza or apple pie or s’mores pizza. It is Goofy’s kitchen, so expect some, well, goofiness. There is a smorgasbord of dessert, from cookies, cakes and even a soft-serve frozen yogurt sundae bar, which means supervising your little ones as they make their meal choices. Otherwise they may come back to the table with dessert for breakfast. It happens. Adults can treat themselves to cocktails for an additional fee. Mimosa, Bloody Mary or bellini, anyone?

Disneyland Character Dining - Goofy's Kitchen

At dinner, Goofy's Kitchen offers a carving station, pasta, salads, veggies, fruit, more of Goofy’s famous pizza (here’s your chance to try macaroni and cheese pizza), hot dogs, Goofyroni and cheese and a number of hot and cold selections.

Whether you start or end your day at Goofy’s Kitchen, while you dine you can expect to be visited by Goofy’s A-list friends such as Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and Chip 'n' Dale. You’ll get about five to six character interactions at this Disneyland character meal. At breakfast, the price is $44 for adults and $26 for kids (ages 3 to 9). Breakfast/brunch begins at 7:00 a.m. every day and is served until 12:00 p.m Monday through Thursday, and until 1:30 p.m. Friday through Saturday. Dinner runs $48 for an adult and $27 per child plus tax and gratuity. Dinner is 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and and 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

Not-So-Goofy Guide to Disneyland Character Dining (Plus Tips!) - Storytellers

4. Mickey's Tales of Adventure Breakfast  and Brunch — Storytellers Café

Storytellers Café offers a relaxed buffet breakfast, followed by a daily brunch. Breakfast is served from 7 a.m. until 11:25 a.m., and brunch food comes out from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The breakfast choices closely match the other Disneyland character meal buffets. Brunch includes a rotating menu of daily lunch specials. You can expect to meet Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and Chip 'n' Dale at this character meal, although characters are subject to change, except for Mickey. Breakfast runs $44 for an adult and $26 per child (ages 3 to 9). The last breakfast seating is by 11:25 a.m. Brunch food starts coming out at 11:30 a.m. Brunch is is $46 per adult and $26 per child, plus tax and gratuity.

Disneyland Character Dining — Storytellers Café

5. Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures — Napa Rose (Now Open!)

Disneyland Character Dining — Princess Breakfast Adventures

We are happy to see that Disneyland brought back a princess character dining option. It includes a three-course meal, souvenirs for the tadpoles and themed activities. You can meet a princess when you enter the lounge, have more princesses visit you at your table, join a princess for a story and a hug outside, and for the finale, you can share a fond farewell and get your princess portrait taken together as you depart and live happily ever after. This breakfast runs Thursdays through Mondays from 8:00 a.m. through noon and blends table service with a buffet.

Here’s the plot twist: You may need a fairy godmother or the crown jewels to pay for this experience, which runs $125 per person, adult or child (although babies 2 and under who share the food on your plate are free)! Tax, gratuity and certain beverages are extra. For this price, each child will receive a souvenir autograph book and a pen when they arrive, which will be useful in gathering signatures of the princesses, as well as parting gifts. The whole experience takes two to two and a half hours, and does not feel rushed at all. You get up to five hours of complimentary valet parking with validation at the Grand Californian Hotel.

Disneyland Character Dining — Belle

Lily was all too hoppy to try out this new breakfast since she loves researching all things princess! It was fabulous, and we enjoyed our leisurely morning of dining and basking in the love of six princesses. This royal feast is truly that— a feast! We counted it as both breakfast and lunch (and it feels a little like an early high tea, too). Beverages like juice, coffee, hot chocolate and milk are included. Adults can have a glass of champagne included, but you may need to ask for it directly. There is a list of Royal Morning Libations with both adult beverages (such as The Cajun Mary, Royal Fizz and Still Royal After Midnight) and fun, themed non-alcoholic drinks (such as The Colors of the Wind with a light-up cube and lemon, orange, passionfruit and pineapple juices along with ginger beer and apple cider, or the Fearless Guardian with dragon fruit, strawberry puree, lemon juice and stevia syrup) and others for additional cost. You can start enjoying them in the bar or order at your table. The meal is supposed to start with a pastry basket of monkey bread and scones with lemon curd (we did not happen to see this course, but no worries — there was so much other food we didn’t miss it. Be sure to ask about it if you don’t see it). Your server will bring a three-tier tower of starters to your table with enough servings for everyone. It includes:

  • Magic carpet parfait: Chia and granola parfait with mango, kiwi and coconut
  • Tangled open-face ham and cheese sandwich with cranberry cream cheese
  • Banana wrap in a crepe with Nutella in berry compote
  • Lobster salad crostini (with a Dinglehopper, aka mini hot dog, upon request)
  • Beignet

Then, you will be invited to visit the buffet, which has breakfast favorites and brunch-like options such as:

  • Scrambled eggs
  • Bacon
  • Artisan turkey sausage
  • Chicken and Mickey waffles
  • Sliced fruit, fruit kabobs and whole berries
  • Either braised short ribs or roasted pork belly (we got the short rib and it was very tender and delicious)
  • Sliders
  • Mac & cheese
  • Roasted asparagus and tomato

Your waiter will bring a basket of hot papas bravas (seasoned French fries) with ketchup and Romesco sauce while you wait for the finale — the dessert tray. Be sure to save room for the delectable desserts! End your meal on a sweet note with:

  • Chocolate princess cake pops (Aurora, Tiana and Belle themes)
  • Belle’s raspberry bouquets (petite raspberry tarts)
  • Ariel’s seashell macarons with mango passionfruit ganache
  • Mulan’s firecracker strawberry honey sorbet topped with cotton candy and sizzling surprise candy
  • The Pocahontas peanut butter crunch mousse with a chocolate feather

Fairy Godmother ordered that the dessert tray be sprinkled with edible gold glitter! Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!

Disneyland Character Dining — Dessert

The experience ranks high in the princess interactions and time spent with the characters and quality of the food and service, but it ranks last mostly due to price, because it may be out of budget for many families. Adding tax, a tip and any themed beverages brings the total of this breakfast to over $600 for a family of four, so be aware of that going in and before suggesting this dining option to your princess-loving tadpoles. Make this meal count as breakfast and lunch for the day if this is a ball you cannot miss, and bring only the family members who would appreciate this royal treatment. Then it’s ramen for dinner everyone! Perhaps you can follow this breakfast with a relaxing day at the pool or with inexpensive entertainment.

The princesses may vary slightly, but you can expect to meet six to eight of the more adventurous princesses including Rapunzel, Tiana, Belle, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas and Aurora. Mulan and Pocahontas happened to be the two princesses who were taking turns sharing stories on the patio on the day we visited. We got to meet Mulan while Pocahontas was out exploring. Perhaps you’ll have a chance to experience story-time with Belle, who can’t put down a good book, during your visit. You’ll end your adventure in the library for a final private moment with a princess — we got Ariel — for a photo and final sendoff. They will give you a PhotoPass card for digital downloads. You can also take pictures with your own camera.

Don’t forget the parting gifts! Each child chooses either a crown necklace or a shield and sword set as a gift. Adults receive a souvenir cinch sack and box of truffles.

While we have ranked our favorite character dining options based on our favorite characters in attendance and how well the organization of the meal worked for our family and budget, you might have a favorite for a different reason. Basically, what we have learned is that the food at all of the breakfast buffets is similar. Goofy’s kitchen adds a silly spin on breakfast. There are small differences in the buffet menus, but what it comes down to is the characters. Choose the meal that offers you the most likelihood of meeting the characters you most want to spend time with or the dining experience most convenient to you (i.e., in your hotel or in the park you are planning to visit that day). Your small tadpole might do best with a smaller selection of characters where he or she can get up and hop around. Your older child might want to maximize the signatures they add to their autograph book. You really cannot go wrong with any of the character dining experiences, but here’s some advice to help you maximize your time.

Disneyland Character Dining Tips and Things to Keep in Mind!

Here are some tips for the best Disneyland character dining experience:

  • Bring your camera, autograph book (or DIY character signature project like this one), and a pen or marker (tadpoles at the Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures will receive their own souvenir autograph book and pen).
  • Plan some fun poses for pictures with the characters.
  • Think of some fun questions to ask the characters or things you might want to tell them.
  • Make advance dining reservations.
  • Note any allergies or dietary issues when reserving, checking in and with the waiter and/or chef.

Disneyland Character Dining - Birthday Cupcake at Goofy's Kitchen

  • When you check in, let them know if you will be celebrating a birthday. They will bring out a cupcake with a candle (along with birthday buttons) for no extra charge.
  • A 15% gratuity is added to buffet meals.
  • Children under the age of 3 may share from an adult's plate at any of the restaurants at no charge.
  • You do not need to be staying at an on-site hotel to dine at a character meal.
  • Characters and prices are subject to change. You are likely to see the characters we mentioned, but you are only guaranteed to meet the one whose name is on the meal, such as Goofy at Goofy’s Kitchen. So don’t make any promises to your tadpoles. Let the character meet and greets be a surprise bonus to breakfast.
  • Consider booking a character breakfast on a day you will not be rushed so you can enjoy it without feeling pressure to move on (and work up an appetite!).
  • Consider booking a late character breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner so that you can take advantage of morning time in the park.
  • If you are entering the theme parks the same day of your character dining, consider purchasing MaxPass, which allows you to receive unlimited PhotoPass downloads from the meal and photos taken in the parks that day, including other character meet and greets. MaxPass also allows you to make a FASTPASS reservation from your smartphone, saving time.
  • PhotoPass photographers may be available for just the initial entrance photo with the main character host (or parting photo at the Disney Princess Adventures Breakfast), so bring your camera!
  • If you are planning to use MaxPass, try to enter a theme park before your meal so you can activate MaxPass. That way, you can make FASTPASS ride reservations from the restaurant and be ready to skip the lines in the park once you are done eating.
  • Let the attendant who brings around photo packages know you would like your free downloads. You will need to ask because they won't automatically scan your app.
  • Optional photo packages for those without PhotoPass include printed photos and downloads and run about $37.99.

While you may be able to get reservations for Disneyland character dining upon short notice, you should make your reservation in advance to get the best choice of times and locations. If you are visiting during a weekend or holiday time, reserve up to 60 days in advance. And if your favorite character did not make it to breakfast, no worries. Here are some tips for meeting your favorite characters in the parks.

Hi Maria!

You are guaranteed to meet characters at Character Dining. Minnie is at Plaza Inn, Goofy’s Kitchen, and usually Donald Duck’s seaside breakfast at PCH Grill. Mickey is at Storytellers breakfast and brunch and usually Goofy’s kitchen, but only at dinner. The best places to meet Mickey and Minnie in the parks are at Town Square inside Disneyland. You can meet them at their houses in Toontown in the morning and early afternoon as well. Minnie is gone by late afternoon though. At Disney California Adventure they are on Buena Vista Street in vintage clothes. You can check the Disneyland app for their locations.

Reply

Hi PT!

The last breakfast seating is 11:25, and you pay before you go into the buffets. Brunch seating starts at 11:30, so if you go in for breakfast they will start bringing out brunch food, and as far as we know they don’t stop you from eating it.

I can made this reservation and before that I go to de Adventure, or I just can go to the Plaza inn if I have de ticket for Disneyland?
