    What makes Storytellers so recommendible (sp?)

    Do they tell stories?

    I've never been to Goofy's Kitchen.. and would love to go someday for my birthday.. which will be next year.. and I'll be 28.. haha.. but I think it' would be a fun experience no matter what age.

    you can eat there as a couple for around $50 minus tip
    Did you have appetizers and desserts?

    That is what I mean by full meal.

    Let's say you split the cheapest appetizer, then both have the cheapest lunch item, and each get a dessert, plus beverages.

    10.00 appetizer
    +19.00 entree
    +19.00 entree
    +8.00 dessert
    +8.00 dessert
    +12.00 beverages
    76.00

    Now add tax and a MINIMUM 15% gratuity unless you recieved horrible service or are cheap. You would be right at around the 95 dollar mark out the door for two people for a full meal which is what I said (about 50 per person out the door). That example uses the cheapest menu options during lunch. The Gulf Stream Jumbo Shrimp, the Monte Cristo (which I have never been impressed with) and either the Trio of Creme Brulee or the Key Lime pie. The prices for the entree can go all the way up to about 40.00 at dinner. That would change the total per person by around 20 bucks.

    When you add all the extras that I think make a full, celebratory meal, and complete the experience, the Blue Bayou is very pricey. Can you eat there for less than 50 per person out the door? Yes, but you won't be getting the full meal, which is what my point was.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm torn between Storyteller's and Goofy's Kitchen now... I really want to do character dining, but I've heard of that Kitchen Sink dessert, and it's tempting me. Haha.

    I went to Ariel's Grotto last year for my 16th birthday, and it looks like the princesses like to spend more quality time with the younger ones... And we just happened to go on the only day my favorite princess (Snow White) wasn't making rounds. )= It was a good experience, but I wouldn't go back unless a younger cousin was with me.

    I had a great birthday dinner at the PCH Grill. They even gave me a birthday button. We ordered off the menu. They have a great variety of food.. They even have a Kitchen Sink concoction for dessert, if your into that sort of thing, and you have enough people there to help you finish it.We did it with a party of 8. No characters at dinner.

    Sure. Rub it in. )

    I'd think Storytellers would be best.

    I'm with Storyteller's and this is also from experience. They have the space, they have the variety in food, and they have the service. It's a comfortable restaurant too with its own set of restrooms with fancy paper towels. Me like.

    Wow, what a cool parent

Its a flat fee by age so over 9 years old is $27.99 I believe plus tax and tip, so unless you love princesses probably not worth it (and I was just there yesterday). If you want something fun with character interaction, maybe Goofys kitchen at the hotel. Its still not cheap, but is totally fun and having fun and being loud is almost encouraged.
    A full meal will run you about $50 per person out the door at the Blue Bayou.

    I think for a 17 year old, Goofy's Kitchen would be much more fun than the Blue Bayou. The BB is dark, semi-quiet or subdued, and expensive. Goofy's is pretty much the opposite.
