    mmmmmmm. Goofys kitchen for dinner.

    But, Minnie's Breakfast has my favorite French toast.

      About the same: all are overpriced somewhat equally in my book.

        my family went to the storytellers cafe and thought it the best of the character meals. the caramel french toast was especially yummy. plus they had chip and dale and pluto and the cute conga line around the buffet. fun fun. the plaza inn wasn't any good at all when we went several years ago.

          We have eaten at Goofy's Kitchen and Story Teller's Cafe and we significantly prefer Goofy's. Now, let me clarify by saying that we go with 2 children, both under the age of ten. They both like Goofy's because the characters are better (Goofy, Donald, Pluto, Alice, Tweedle Dee & Dum, a princess or 2, and other various "classic" characters) as opposed to the characters offered at Story Teller's (Koda, Kenai, Chip, Dale, etc). Goofy's is also much more lively, with singing and dancing, lead by the characters. The food at Story Teller's Cafe is tasty, but not so much so that it surpasses Goofy's.

            I've only done Ariel's Grotto. While I didn't feel like it was terribly overpriced ($21 for a three-course meal isn't really that bad, especially after my CM discount), the food was mediocre, though the desserts rocked. It was pretty obvious that we were paying for the atmosphere.

              Goofy's Kitchen is the best. It has the best food, and the staff of the Disneyland Hotel is always friendly and courteous.

                I've only done Storytellers, and that was last Sunday with Karla. The food was fabulous, but if your focus is on meeting the characters, I think you'll be disappointed. They weren't very prominent, and I thought they could have done more.

                    Hotels are $21.99 for breakfast, $28.99 for dinner for adults. The price for kids 3-10 is the same all across for $11.99. Plaza Inn is also the same prices.

                    Ariel's Grotto is a dollar cheaper for adults but two dollars more expensive for children. Not to go overkill on linking back but here's where the info came from...

                      IMO they were to prominent. They freaked me out...sneaking around...popping up unexpetedly.....the food was ok...the company was the best ever.

                        We've eaten at Goofy's kitchen 4years ago and loved it. The characters were there and came to the table and played games with the kids. They loved it and so did we.

                          We've eaten at all of the character meals offered (multiple times) and they all have one thing in common...You do pay for the atmosphere.

                          That being said, best overall experience is at Goofy's Kitchen.

                          Best quality of (prepared) food is at Storytellers.

                          Best character interaction is at Goofy's Kitchen.

                          Best value is at the Plaza Inn for breakfast with the characters of the season (Christmas, Princesses, Minnie's events, etc...)

                          All of them are fun, but the above stand out above the rest.

                          Of course, the ultimate meal can only be had at the three yearly events put on by the DL Hotel in the Grand Ballroom. They have the Brunch for Easter and Mother's Day and the Thanksgiving Day Feast for the Holidays.

                          They have terrific decorations, food carvings, live music and plenty of characters for the kids to meet. And did I mention the awesome food? And we can't forget the HUGE dessert tables which includes the free-flowing chocolate fountain.

                          We'll be there for the Easter event this sunday. Can't wait!

                          You can't go wrong wherever you eat. Just relax and have a great time!

                          Enjoy!

                            I like Ariel's the best. It is probably the least expensive of all of them, usually not as crowded and always has lots of characters and great interaction!
