Goofy’s Kitchen Character Dining

June 4, 2014

Our family loves character meals so on a recent trip to Disneyland, I made a reservation for Goofy’s Kitchen. This meal serves breakfast and dinner and is located inside the Disneyland Hotel. The hotel is in walking distance from the parks, but it’s a further walk than meals inside the parks, of course, so you may want to factor that in. It would be perfect for an arrival evening or departing morning if you don’t have park passes and want to start or leave with a little extra magic!

dining with Disney characters

The food at the meal was delicious! We choose dinner, but we passed by during breakfast the food looked great then, too! There were many hot items including fish, chicken, a carving station, plenty of sides, pasta, pizza, and there was a great salad bar with many options. There was a section for the kiddos, though I admit to getting a bit of mac and cheese for myself! The desserts were delicious! My only disappointment was that I didn’t have a large enough appetite to try them all!

But, the real draw for this meal is the great character interaction! Unlike Disney World meals where the chosen characters for a meal are all from the same “group” (Mickey and friends, Playhouse Disney characters, Princesses, etc.), the characters here came from several different movies and stories! We saw Minnie, Chip, Dale, Peter Pan, Aladdin, Pluto, and, of course, Goofy! Characters may vary, but these seem to be the norm. The characters actually came around twice each during our meal, but that was likely because we had an early meal and the restaurant wasn’t very full yet. The character interaction was so perfect and the restaurant was lively and fun! We will definitely choose Goofy’s Kitchen again next time we go to Disneyland!
