  • Character Dining???

    My family and I are going to Disneyland in March. I have a 5 year old daughter that loves all of the princesses. I know at Disneyworld there is a breakfast in Cinderela's castle but can't tell if Disneyland has anything like it. Could I get some advice please? Thank you!

    What you want is Ariel's Grotto at DCA. That is the place for princesses.

        Goofys Kitchen in the Disneyland Hotel has character dining. But it is $20-30 per person.

          Ariel's Grotto is strictly princesses. Goofy's Kitchen is a variety of characters. You might get on or two princess there. Both run in the $20 - $30 range per person. No dining place with characters is cheap. But both are great fun for kids!

            If she loves the Princesses, eat at Ariel's Grotto. I highly recomment making reservations. They accept them up to 60 days in advance and the earlier you make them the better. You do have the choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Which Princesses are there varies by day, but they try to have at least 4 there.

            Here's a link to the menu so you can see what they serve.

              Hello and welcome to the boards. We have done both Ariels and Goofys with our 2 and 5 year old princess crazy girls. I also would recomend Ariels to you. There is Ariel and 4 of her princess friends will be there. The friends rotate but Ariel in the green dress is always there.
              Also, we found Ariels to be easier with young children because they have table service. At Goofy's us adults had to take turns getting food for the kids then wait stop here comes a character don't get food yet. So all of the up and down to get food and stopping to pull our cameras and video cameras we did not end up with hot food like we did at Ariels.
              When you make your priority seating reservations they will tell you that you have 80 minutes. Howver, every time we have been there it takes longer to get all 3 of your courses. We have found that the first seating at 11:30 runs pretty smothly. Also, order all 3 of your courses including your dessert at the same time. On one trip we waited to order our desserts at the end at that through the waiter off.
              Anyway sorry for such a long post and have a great trip.

                Another option would be Character Breakfasts at Plaza Inn at Disneyland. It's a buffet and I love the food there and they have some of the more traditional Disney characters.

                  Thanks for all the advice. I really appreciate it.

                  I also have an 11 year old son. Any suggestions on where to take him. My wife is going to take my daughter to do the princess dining and I am taking him somewhere else. Is ESPN Zone the best place for him??

                    Depends on what he likes. Might want to do Goofy's Kitchen, Hungry Bear, Rancho del Zocalo.

                      An eleven year old would definately enjoy ESPN more than a character breakfast!

                        I don't know about that... we took my 11 year old brother-in-law over the summer and he enjoyed the character meals every bit as much as my 10 year old sister-in-law. Though I don't think Ariel's Grotto was his favorite, he definitely loved the food there and thought it was cool. Just depends on the kid. If he's into sports, go ESPN... if he's a Disney-a-holic... do whatever Ask him.
