Hey- I edited this and took my pics down. They all had my kids in them and it's a sign of the times but I just didn't feel good putting my kid's pictures up and out on the net. Sorry to not be able to help...but here's the text I had in hope that that might help someome make a decision about which Char. Breakfast to do when at DLR.

FROM ORIGINAL POST:

These are pics of my kids and my ex at Goofy's Kitchen this past August. We had a blast there but I am leaning towards the Minnie Breakfast for when he head back for my oldest daughter's bday this July. It's in the park and when we were at DL this past Sunday we got there early enough to see folks doing the Minnie breakfast (we'd never gotten there so early before) and there were characters there that my kids never get to see (Hook for one, Minnie, Godmother,etc)....but Goofy's was fantastic (good food, lots of options, and a fun rest before we hit the park). But from what I hear, Minnie's is great too but just with less food options.

And yes, I'm head over heels in love with Jasmine. Good lord she's stunning! :love:

Photos from 2007 and 2008 - please ignore that some of them are very dark, my room mate isn't very good at handling my camera. Please also ignore my sunburn on the Lilo & Stitch photos, that was at the very end of our trip. :laughing:

I actually think it would be a great idea to have a whole Character Dining sticky photo thread where everyone could post their photos of all the different meals - including the new Celebration BBQ - because the character meal questions come up so often, and this would give everybody a place to go for reference, where all the character meal food photos, reviews and character meal pictures can be found in one place. As it is right now, there are some character meal photos in the Character photo thread, and some character meal food pictures in the Dining thread, but they are not easy to find and not consolidated in one place.

Anyway, here are some of my favorites from Goofy's through the years:

And from Storytellers/Critter Breakfast - in 2001 and 2007 (pardon me for looking so awful in the 2007 pictures; I was in a lot of pain and feeling terrible that day so didn't fix up my face or hair in any way)!!:

I totally understand, that's why none of our pics will be posted either. I wanted to say that my DBF feels much the same as you, Jasmine is his very favorite Princess and he always has to have a picture with just him and her. lol

Anyone else have any photos from any of the character meals to share on this thread for OP to see? I really like the ones Vala posted from all of the meals! I think we don't see as many pictures from Storytellers or even from Lilo and Stitch, so it would be cool if we could get more of those.

Do you have a free Photobucket account? Start there. Upload your pictures (if you haven't done so already) to your Photobucket account. Then, look for the IMG code. This code is always located either underneath or to the right of each photo, and each photo has a separate IMG code. You will actually see a series of 4 codes under or next to every picture, but the IMG is the one you want and that is the last one - the 4th one down. Copy the entire code (Ctrl C) and don't leave any part of it out. Then open up your post here on this thread and paste (Ctrl V) the IMG code right in the post. Voila! Photos will appear! Try it!

I didn't start this thread, but as I stated earlier, I think it would be a great idea to have a separate thread devoted to nothing but character meal photos and reviews (including food pictures too), so I am anxious to see what pictures everybody else has!! The character meal questions come up every week on DIS, and it would be nice to sort of have the 'answers' and info all in one spot.

I did find the remaining shots from those two meals I have, unfortunately it is not much.

We only saw three characters at Lilo & Stitch and Pluto was the last one:

Storytellers:

Kenai & Koda - I told you that room mate can't handle my camera. I got a new one that's supposedly "beginner proof", so we'll see how she handles that one this year.

Chip:

Meeko - ignore the look on my face, I had a little food accident before and barely had stopped coughing when Meeko showed up:

Believe me, I know what you mean about the reposting. It took quite some doing to get all those Goofy's pictures I posted onto this thread. I had to go into my TR and then copy those pictures' codes, and then I went to Photobucket to grab the ones I hadn't posted in my TR (like from Storytellers) and then I whittled everything down to just a handful of what I had and posted them all here, hoping to inspire other people to post. And no one else is posting!:lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao: Some inspiration I am, eh??

Those are adorable! I have a feeling that between you, DizNee Luver and myself, we can keep this thread hopping with pictures.

I love that - beginner-proof camera! I have a feeling that when I hand my new camera over to my one friend who is not good with cameras (and I can barely work the darn thing myself), she will be very.....'beginner-ish.' It took her ages and ages to get good pictures with my old 35 mm point and shoot, and that was EASY.

Ignore the look on your face? You look adorable in all of your photos! I was really hesitant to post anything from Storytellers (you notice I look better in all of my Goofy's stuff than Storytellers) because I was having bad pain in my back and legs that day and my face and hair looked really bad because I just didn't care at that point - as long as I could move, I didn't care what my face or hair looked like!:lmao:

Those are great, Reynmagsmom!!! So precious. I think your Aurora was different than the one we had in December, and maybe the Jasmine was different too! Anyway, I am glad to see that there are a lot of us Goofy's fans out there:cool1: But everyone with Minnie's, Lilo and Stitch, Storytellers and Ariel's pictures, please post too. I am sure we would all love to see them.

Those are great, Reynmagsmom!!! So precious. I think your Aurora was different than the one we had in December, and maybe the Jasmine was different too! Anyway, I am glad to see that there are a lot of us Goofy's fans out there:cool1: But everyone with Minnie's, Lilo and Stitch, Storytellers and Ariel's pictures, please post too. I am sure we would all love to see them.

Thanks Sherry E the one of my son with jasmine is one of my favs he looks like like he is such a cool dude with his little smirk he was pretty happy with her thought she was very pretty. This is my 18 yr old with C.P., deaf and is mentally about 3 or 4ish!!!

Bless his heart! Well, he looks very happy with Jasmine and with Goofy's in general. How wonderful it must be for you to see him having such a wonderful time.

I think if this thread can stay afloat and not drift into the murky depths of the archives, it will be a good resource for people to help them decide which character meal looks best for them. Because I know that looking at all those fabulous photos that DizNee Luver just posted, I definitely want to try Minnie and Friends and I am eager to get back to Goofy's!! Even Ariel's is looking better to me (thanks to Jade's photos) and I have little to no interest in Princesses!

We did Lilo and Stitch yesterday. I will post pics when they are all uploaded :)

The food was good, good variety, and the characters came around quite a bit or you could walk up to the photo spot anytime you wanted. The resturant was HOT though, very humid!

Wonderful, now I am craving Worms and Dirt from Goofy's. :rotfl:

I'm already going back and forth between reservations for our November trip.

We're there for almost two weeks and I hope to do every character meal at least once, with Goofy of course getting the honors of hosting breakfast and dinner for us. :love:

I made a deal with my friends: Celebration barbecue in exchange for another visit at Lilo and Stitch's. :cool1:

I thought I had everything figured out and then the convention we are in town for announced an evening event for the Sunday where we had planned for an early return to DLR and lunch at Goofy's. :scared1:

Thanks for everyone's pics. We are doing Goofy's (dinner) this next trip in October and I'm hoping (based on pics like these) to lure the family to Lilo and Stitch breakfast next trip. I just love Stitch and it looks good for kids of many ages!

We saw a total of 14 characters at Minnie & Friends in April of this year.....it was crazy...never seen that many characters before. We got pics & autographs with 10 of them, had an 11th character come to our table (right when we were being seated, so no camera or book out yet) & saw 3 more characters running around.

New to us was the White Rabbit & Honest John (from Pinocchio)....I was pretty excited about that!!!

I started to bring up pics from 2005 & realized, it wasn't the Minnie & Friends meal but the Plaza used to host the Princess & friends breakfast there. Ariel's used to have Captain Mickey & friends....but I saved those pics since neither meal is running anymore.

I don't know if anyone caught it - and I meant to point it out before and forgot - but on Page 1 of this thread, in my Post #7, 11th picture down, from Goofy's December 1993, Santa Goofy has me partially on his lap. He knelt down and pulled me on his knee and I was resisting and tried to stay upright. He was a bit of a frisky Santa Goofy, I think!

So I am bumping this thread (it had already slipped to page 3:scared1::scared1:) because I just KNOW there are lots of other folks out there who can add their pictures from all the different character meals! We have had such wonderful contributions so far from everyone - but I personally would like to see more. So keep 'em coming!:goodvibes I know they are out there!

And I think it is a really helpful thread to have for influencing decisions about where to eat based on food selection and characters on site.

Both of these were taken at The Aloha Breakfast with Lilo & Stitch @ PPH...the only other character breakfast that we have done was the one at Storyteller's. The characters did not seem as enthusiastic as Lilo, Stitch, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto & Minnie. We really enjoy the food at the Aloha Breakfast much better too! We keep on returning to PPH for their breakfast over and over...

Oh, wonderful! I am so glad you posted.:goodvibes I think are tons of folks out there who have done character meals and have lots of pictures, but they either have not found this thread or are shy!

Anyway, those are great pictures, DisneyIsMagical! You guys are a very photogenic group! I agree about Storytellers - even though I have not yet done Lilo and Stitch, just in comparison to the energy level at Goofy's I noticed Storytellers was very mellow. Now, that may appeal to lots of people who want a more laid back, mellow kind of character meal experience. I think that some people are not as familiar with the Brother Bear characters as other characters, so the whole mood is not as exciting. I like the Storytellers restaurant in general - it has a nice vibe to it that is good for a quiet dinner or lunch, but it is very quiet for a character meal!

I am getting more eager to try Lilo & Stitch - if for no other reason, just to get a picture with the very elusive Daisy Duck!

Yes! You must post! And I KNOW you probably have a whole bunch of pictures!! I didn't even start this thread, but I realized early on that it was a great idea to have all the character meal photos in one place because questions come up about them every week. I tried to bump this thread a couple of times in the past and it was usually ignored until it slipped into the no man's land of Page 2 or 3!!:scared1: It would be nice to keep it alive somehow so that people can constantly add their character meal photos to it, past and present!

That I do, that I do! And you're right, it's great to just have one giant collection of them. Eventually, when I've done more than just the one, I'll have one full album dedicated to them. So far I'm looking at doing 2 more for my birthday, but it's so hard to decide what I want to do, since I can't do them all at once.

My friend (River Lou, here on the DIS) and I did the Minnie & Friends breakfast at the Plaza Inn on the last day of our stay back in March. We were the second table seated that morning so we got some fun interaction before everyone started filing in. Unfortunately I had to delete some of those photos, like Br'er Fox escorting my friend to go get her food!! All in all, we saw:

Fairy Godmother, who loved the color of my nails - Bippidi Boppidi Blue!

Wow, I am constantly amazed at the array of characters at Minnie and Friends when I see pictures of it. Belle Ella, I LOVE that picture of you and Chip hugging - that is so adorable! They are all great (as your pictures always are), but that one jumped out at me! In the old days of Goofy's (I would say at the old DLH location of the '90s), there used to be so many characters coming by that I couldn't eat a bite of food because I had to keep stopping and taking pictures. I wonder if that happens at Minnie and Friends because there are so many characters running around. As much as I love the characters, I want to eat too, so I wonder if it ever becomes difficult to do that. I still look forward to trying it eventually.

Belle Ella, which other 2 of the character meals are you considering for your birthday?

I can see with Minnie & Friends how finding the time to eat between all of the characters stopping by could be a hastle. For me though, it was never an issue. I am a fast eater and when I'm done, I'm done, and I had finished getting my food and eating between the first wave of characters that we got and then the second wave of them coming around again (some came by 3 or 4 times). I loved that it seemed like I as either busy eating, or busy interacting with the characters without a lot of downtime between the two.

Right now the decision looks to be between Ariel's Grotto and Goofy's Kitchen. I wish I could do both, but it'll depend on the rest of the people who go with me if we can or if we can only do one. Eventually I will make my way through them all.

thank you all for sharing. I will hopefully be able to add more after our trip for the Half Marathon. I really am leaning towards Minnie's, but that Peanut butter and jelly pizza at Goofy's may be enough to tip the scale that direction.

Goofy's does have the biggest buffet out of all of them (and the bigger price tag to go with it) - but it ROCKS! The fruit is so fresh and juicy, the bacon is excellent and how can you top Mickey-shaped cobbler? Awesome!

Emmers, I think I am going to merge this thread with the other character meal photo thread that exists. See, quite a while ago, someone started a thread asking DIS-ers to share photos from their character meals (on the main DL section of the board). A few of us posted lots of pictures. Then the OP never came back to the thread and I tried to keep it alive by bumping it repeatedly in hopes we could get all the character meal photos (and reviews too, if possible) into one master thread, just like the regular Dining thread that exists, so people would always have a place to go and look at character meal photos to help them decide which ones they wanted to try. My bumping efforts were usually unsuccessful. So I am going to merge your thread with the other one and keep it over here on the Community section (since everyone forgot about it over in the DL forum anyway!:lmao:), and maybe it will have new life here!!! We need more folks to post! We KNOW that tons of us do character meals - we need to see the photos and hear the reviews!

Here's my quick review of Minnie and Friends.

For me, a character meal is all about the characters who will be there. I'd rather have a character meal with fewer characters, most or all of which mean something to me, than a character meal with a bunch of characters that I'm neutral about. In that respect, the rotation of characters at Minnie's doesn't hold much appeal to me right now (now when I'm married and have kids, I may be singing a different tune). Seeing Minnie and the chipmunks is great, but the other characters are just characters to me.

That said, the character interaction is outstanding at Minnie's. Most of them came by to our table multiple times and Tigger took my 3 year old nephew for a ride while he was sitting in a party member's wheelchair. Eeyore took a real liking to my under a year old niece and on occasion, they had to pull him away to go see someone else. Our group never lacked for attention and it was difficult to make my way through the breakfast because the characters kept on coming. It's certainly a lot of fun and if you want to see some harder to find characters, (Rabbit, Rafiki, and Captain Hook were at ours), Minnie and Friends will probably be a great choice for you. I would certainly eat there again in a group, though probably not on a solo visit.

Hello Everyone!!

Sherry has been wanting me to post pictures on this thread for months now and I am FINALLY getting to it. I have to admit that because of how many pictures I have up from all of my trips with characters at Minnie & Friends and at Goofy's (not to mention some from StoryTellers), I've hesitated on it, but I figure, I might as well just try to start!

These are from our Summer '06 Trip at StoryTellers
(From this trip, its myself (Jasmine) and my fiance Shyboy72):

Then the Mad Hatter & Alice showed up, sat at our table and made small talk.
Then they decided to make us play a game. The Mad Hatter had us put tea cups
on our heads and spin in circles. Then he had us move around each other while
spinning, and said it was like his ride! HAHA. Then he had us compete to see
who would win!

WHEW! That was a lot! Sorry guys! So based on all the photos, I think you can tell that we REALLY enjoy Minnie & Friends. We usually make our PS an hour before park opening so that we finish just when the park opens and we're already there on Main Street !! We also really love it because there is SO much character interaction! When we first went in January, we were FLOORED by how much character interaction there was! It was fantastic!

There is more story behind all of my photos, if you would like to see, please take a look at my signature and head over to my TR :)

Your story of the Mad Hatter having everyone pretend to be his ride reminds me of the time I entered the park and found him leading a kick line of about 10 guys in front of the floral. The wives, girlfriends, and children of these guys found this whole scene even funnier than I did and I thought it was pretty funny.

That is too funny! I have seen Alice & the Ma Hatter there a couple of times with the band making trouble :)

We've been to exactly one character meal. We did Ariel's grotto for dinner in May 07 because my DD is a princess fan. We plan to do GK this next trip though although Minnie's is beginning to appeal to me so we may have a decision to make. lol

Loved the pictures. You all look like you get soooo into the characters. That is great. :thumbsup2

I am planning on making reservations for Minnies in November. We have only done Goofy's before. WazowskiLOVER, You mentioned that you make reservations for before the park opens. Does this work on a normal day or only on a MM day? We will probably have a couple of days where the park opens at 10. It would be great to get into Minnies at 9 on a non-MM day.

From our breakfast at Storytellers's this past Saturday, 10/24/09 (this was my third time trying the Critter Breakfast there, and I have to say, I still prefer Goofy's Kitchen for food selection, characters and quality by a mile; the Storytellers menu prices are only like $5 cheaper than the buffet, so it makes more sense to get the buffet, but the buffet is very limited):

Okay let's post all of mine! They can all be found in my TR too. (Well most of them)

These are from Lilo and Stitch's at the PCH Grill. I believe this was in 2007 for my 20th birthday.

Yay, Courtney! I am so glad you posted all these fabulous character meal photos! This thread was lacking your adorable pictures, and we needed to revive it somehow (people seem to have forgotten about it over here on the lonely Community Board!)! You and Jesus are always so cute with the characters! A character meal photo thread just isn't the same without contributions from both Jasmine and Courtney!!:grouphug:

I've got lots of pictures to add from my last trip (we did Goofy's three times among other meals :rolleyes1), but I haven't even uploaded the shots yet because I came home sick. I'm still working on getting over that cold.

Great photos, GoofyontheHiSeas (we never see Mulan at Goofy's Kitchen)!

As usual, Vala, you look like you are having a blast at the character meals - and Goofy's three times? A girl after my own heart!! I love the character interaction at Minnie's in your pictures. I am definitely kicking myself for electing to do Storytellers last month rather than go to my beloved Goofy's or even just try something new and do Minnie's or Lilo & Stitch.

Minnie's is really fun, Sherry. You should try it. The food is good (they have basic breakfast stuff, unlike the unique food I know they have at Goofy's and Lilo and Stitch's), but I really like the drink options. Unlike the other character breakfasts, they have a serve your own drink station. They have different kind of juices, coffees (hot and iced), and bottled drinks you can take for later. Plus the character interaction is wonderful. I really like the variety of characters. It seems like everytime someone posts pictures from their breakfast there, there's at least one different character!

I've been around for almost two weeks this year, so it came kind of natural to eat at Goofy's three times. ;)

Unfortunately the second visit didn't really go as great and we almost ended up cancelling the third one because I was really mad.

There was a huge family reunion (or something like that... it was a group over thirty people) in one part of the restaurant. They kept hogging the characters. At one point everyone but Goofy was at their table.

We saw no characters for about an hour. If it hadn't been for Andrea (she hates it when we stick out because I do something out of the ordinary) I would have gone to that table myself and asked them if they'd mind letting at least one character go. Me and another table ended up complaining with a waiter because no one else was around, and he finally got Chip out of their claws and to us.

I understand that they may have not been many people working on Halloween. Also it was the family's fault in the first place for being so inconsiderate. But still someone should have done something earlier without us complaining. It was hard to overlook the annoyed tables... the family next to us left angry and had seen only two characters.

That's the fastest way to get a bad reputation.

I like Storytellers just because it's so quiet, but I can see why a Goofy's lover will be disappointed there. ;)

It's a shame that you won't get to go to Lilo & Stitch anymore before they change. I've always considered this one a hidden gem.

Thank you. That lanyard was my Halloween costume seeing the real costume didn't make it on time. :rolleyes1 Tink, the other pixies and Aladdin and Jasmine were pretty fascinated too. ;)

Yes, that's the complete Halloween series that DisneyStore.com was selling this year. Tink as Wendy, Belle, Cinderella and Minnie plus Jessica as Hook and Blue Fairy. And yes, that is the Jessica as Ursula pin on the bottom. :cutie:

I was lucky enough to score the whole series.

I updated my trip report, so here's the shots from November 1 too - Lilo & Stitch breakfast and Ariel's Grotto:

The Ursula pin is really nice, yes. I wasn't planning on keeping one originally, but when I got the pin package (I had it sent to my hotel) I changed my mind. I had a couple of spares which I traded in the park and the traders were going crazy about it.

I just checked my bags and unfortunately I traded my last one the day before you posted. I'm really sorry, if I had known you're looking for it I would have send it to you.

I was also lucky enough to get the Jessica pin from the Halloween set. Seems I am somehow secretly attracted to her. ;)

12-04-2009, 05:21 PM
I'm really sorry. I actually had quite a lot of them because I got them for others who didn't pay me... but in Disneyland I was getting trades like 2 Haunted Mansion jumbos per pin for it, so the number diminished quickly. ;)

I'll keep you in mind next time I come across a rare Jessica pin.

Pins are a really interesting way to interact with characters. My lanyard is themed to my favorite movies, Star Wars and Sleeping Beauty.

I've had Chip and Dale eat my pin of them as ewoks because they were so excited. Minnie pantomimed sleeping after seeing her and Mickey as Aurora and Phillip. Goofy force choked me after he saw my Goofy Vader pin, and I've managed to make Ariel jealous on two occasions because she's not on my lanyard while Aurora is.

Not that I am aware of.:goodvibes If there were something like that, it would be in this thread on the first page. Someone may have done an informal breakdown somewhere, but it's not really necessary to have that kind of a list. It's not a bad idea, but this thread could grow to 100 or 200 pages, and it would be an ongoing effort to update and maintain the list to show what was on each new page. This is just a fun photo/information thread for people to enjoy, much like the Dining thread, the PhotoPass thread, the DLR Nighttime photo thread, the DLR Holiday Photo Thread, the Spirit of DLR photo thread, etc. (none of those have an Index or Table of Contents page either).

I took two existing threads that featured some character meal pictures - and I had been championing an all-character meal thread for a while - and I merged them together, so we just keep adding to it.

There have been a couple of people who have listed which character meal photos were on which pages of their Trip Reports in separate threads, so maybe that's what you saw?

I'm going to have to bookmark this thread, because I know I'm going to visit Goofy's Kitchen in my hopes of finding Baloo, and right now Minnie's is looking very tempting since I want to find Captain Hook. And, yes, I will post pictures once I'm back from the trip!

Those pictures are the best, Lilsprstr!!! I especially love the one with Aurora, Goofy and the cupcake, and the ones with both Chip and Dale! But they are all really adorable and fun! That's why I love this thread - it is so fun to see everyone's interaction at the character meals, and it is also informative because people can see what kinds of characters are around and what they do while they visit each table!!

Thanks for posting your wonderful photos here for us all to enjoy.:goodvibes

Oh goodness! Let's bump this up! This poor thread had sunk way too far down the pages, and character meals are such an important part of planning for many people - it needs to be seen!!

This poor thread needs another serious bump! Because it's neither a sticky nor is it on the main planning section of the DL forum, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle. But I know that there have to be more people with character meal photos!!

Here are some new ones from our trip last week:

This was our first time at the PCH Grill for The Mickey & Friends Surf's Up breakfast. It was awesome! Good food, not overly crowded, the character interaction was fantastic. My 21 mo old absolutely adores Mickey, so this was a super-fun meal for us! Oh, and the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip French Toast is to die for!:thumbsup2

Thanks so much, Monkey Monkey and Lilsprstr, for posting your wonderful photos!!:cool1: I definitely think people either don't know this thread exists OR they can't find it, or they just forget about it because it's not on the main planning forum and it's not a sticky (we have to do the sticky threads very sparingly). But I know there are lots and lots of folks doing the character meals every day, and there have got to be more photos floating around!

Anyway, you both provided us with more photos from Ariel's, which were badly needed! We didn't have enough from Ariel's.

Monkey Monkey - I especially love the first photo with Dale. So cute. But some of the ones from Ariel's are absolutely priceless, like the ones with the baby!! So cute!

Lilsprstr - we especially needed pictures from the new Surf's Up meal, as that is still a big question mark for many people. I was excited to see you posted them, but I don't know if I like Mickey's outfit!!:rotfl2: For some reason, his shorts and hat bother me!!:rotfl2: I was expecting Mickey to be in some sort of Hawaiian shirt ensemble or something kind of festive. Not sure if I'm digging the current red and white get-up.:confused3

I think you're right that people don't know about this thread. I never knew about it until you pointed it out to me.

So you don't like Mickey's Lifeguard outfit? I thought it was kinda cute. Oh, well, to each his own. :)

I'm so glad people are still finding this thread and posting on it. Originally, I wanted this thread to be my pet project - in terms of regularly bumping it and keeping it active - before I made the Halloween and Christmas threads my labors of love. I think the whole character meal subject is an important part of planning for DLR - lots of folks do the character meals and lots of folks have questions about them as well. I think it's really useful for people to be able to see exactly which characters are at which meals, and how the roster of characters may change over time, not to mention the food choices at any of these meals. But since this thread was moved over to the Community section, it has been largely forgotten.:sad1: We can't make sticky threads too liberally (or I would have stuck this one a long time ago), so it just kind of floats around in the Community section until someone remembers it and decides to post. Even when it's bumped, it's still kind of overlooked because it's not on the main forum. So we really need a lot of contributors to get this back in the main flow of things!

Anyway, great pictures, Jazz!

Well, I do know I'll have more photos to add come the end of September. If only I could decide what I wanted to do.

Good eye! Indeed, it is the same Cinderella :goodvibes She even remembered us from the day before so we did a different Princess Pose than last time. I don't have photos of it, but it's the same Jasmine that my friend had seen in the parks the day before as well. So I figure they do a lot of rotating around.

Thanks for all the great photos. DD & I will be visiting in August to celebrate our birthdays (that's right we are almost birthday twins!) Do any of the meals do something special for b-days? After looking at all the pics I'm still undecided--Minnie's or Goofy's and Ariel's for lunch or do they still do breakfast? How does the food compare at Minnie's vs. Goofy's? Thanks :)

I just saw this thread and loved looking at all the great photos. Here are some older ones from our trip last October 2009 at Minnie's. This was the ONLY place my DS (who was almost 2 at the time) would interact with any of the characters. Every other time we tried he got upset/scared.

I'm pretty sure we're going to do Ariel's Grotto, but also considering one other that would be better for my ds who will just have turned 2. What's the difference really between Goofy's & Minnie's? Thanks! :)

Bum.. this thread has made me excited to go--- I am a WDW vet but there are characters at DL that aren't at WDW (like Max) or hard to find... I definitely want to do Ariel's to get my princess fix. My usual traveling buddy is DS (pre teen) for not too into the princesses but this time it will be my 17 yr old DD>

@ Belle Ella - thank you for posting the Ariel's Grotto pix! I think you just made up my mind! I was originally set on Ariel's for DD6's birthday, then I was teatering about maybe doing Minnie's instead. However, I love how pretty and 'tea-like' the presentation appears and am having second thoughts about running back and forth to a buffet. I will let DD make the final decision (it is her birthday after all), but will not be at all disappointed if she chooses Ariel's! :goodvibes

Anyone have recent picts of Mickey's Surf's Up? I have reservations for both Minnie and Friends and Mickey's Surf's Up...my DH would really like me to choose one. :rolleyes1

I wish this thread were more visible. I just happened to stumble upon it. It seems that many people want info. about character b-fasts. This should be more visible.

Sherry E

I think it should be more visible too! Ideally, I'd like to make it a sticky (much like the PhotoPass thread) - but we have to be very conservative with the number of sticky threads we assign to the top of a page, unfortunately.

Technically, this thread has been a photo thread thus far. All the straight photo threads have to go to the Disneyland Community Board.

If this were a photo and information thread (like the regular Dining thread on the main Disneyland forum), it could go in the main DL section because it pertains to planning. The main Disneyland forum is only for planning-related threads. Any of the 'just for fun' threads go to DL Community.

The OP of this thread disappeared. I'm not sure if she is coming back. I suppose we could change the title of the thread to include "Information" and then move it back to the main forum so people can ask questions and discuss the character meals. But if it stays a photo thread it has to stay here in this forum.

Happy 2 B Me

How about a new thread that's called something like Character Meals Info and Photos or The Character Meal Superthread. If someone knowledgable about the different character meals started it, others can add info and photos to it. My first character meal is coming up this July so I would be interested in some new up to date info and photos. :goodvibes

:thumbsup2 I think this is a great idea! It can be the Character Meal Superthread that includes pictures, reviews, and info. in one place. It makes sense to me! People ask about character meals all the time...it would be great to have one location...kind of like Hyrdoguy's superthreads. I love that the info. is all on one thread. It saves so much time searching for a topic. I think it is nice to be able to direct people to one thread as well. Some people do not take the time to search and as a result ask the same question over and over. I'm a teacher so I know how tiresome it gets answering the same questions over and over again. :laughing:

Ahem...HydroGuy is not the only one with Superthreads on this board!;) There are actually a few of us who have them. Even with the Superthreads, people still ask the same questions over and over!:rotfl2:

I don't want to get carried away with the number of Superthreads we have on the board because it's not necessary to have one for everything - it can be overkill - BUT I am already one step ahead of you and Pink Budgie about the one for character meals!

I asked someone yesterday - before ever seeing Budgie's suggestion - if she would be willing to put together the Superthread because I knew she had done all 5 of the meals. I don't think she wants to do the thread, though - and if she does do it, I don't think it will be right away. So we have to find a back-up.

I'm a Goofy's Kitchen veteran and I have quite a bit of experience with the Critter Breakfast at Storytellers Cafe, but I really want someone to put together the thread who has done all 5 meals at least a couple of times and is organized - also, it helps for that person to be someone with an established reputation on the board, meaning someone that people know at least a little bit.

Once the Superthread is set up with the initial info and posts, it pretty much operates on auto pilot, with other people exchanging info, reviews and photos.

Actually, I was thinking of you when I said it! ;) If all else fails you can do the ones you know and let others add the other info. You could even go back and add more info if you went to other meals later. And much of it is basic information that you can find on the internet anyway like times and menus.

Is Goofy's Kitchen more expensive than Surf's Up? Which meal has the most, and most diverse cast of characters? IM leaning toward Goofy, but everyone tells me something different. Help!

Hi there, hearic!

I think what happens is that, when most of us are giving information on character meals, we include our opinions of the meals into it as well (which most people usually want to know), and that clouds the actual facts.

So the facts are this (I am leaving my personal opinions out of it) - aside from Ariel's Grotto's princess meal, Goofy's Kitchen is the most expensive of the character meals. I don't know the exact price for Surf's Up right now, but it's not too far behind, after tax and tip (the gratuity is added in automatically). They are all pretty costly.

Goofy's Kitchen sometimes has 8 characters in the restaurant at one time - some of them may be working one side of the room and some are on the other side. Other times you may only be visited by 3 characters and then see a couple more who didn't get to you in another section.

So, basically, at the end of the day Goofy's Kitchen may offer up anywhere from 3 - 8 characters, with an average of about 5-6, and you never know which day you are going to get which scenario. I've experienced both.

At Surf's Up, from what I have seen in everyone's photos, the average is about 5 characters in the restaurant, but sometimes it may only be 4 and sometimes it could be 6.

Goofy's has Goofy, Pluto, usually Chip & Dale, often times Baloo, usually a couple of Princesses, and a rotating cast that can include the Mad Hatter and Alice, Captain Hook, Minnie, the Genie, etc., etc.

Surf's Up has Mickey - this is the only meal where you will meet Mickey - as well as occasional appearances by Daisy Duck. Stitch is also there. I think Goofy and Donald pop in from time to time. Minnie is also at this meal too.

People say that the character interaction is great at Surf's Up. I could also say the same about Goofy's, but that veers into the 'opinion' category! Some folks don't agree with me about the Goofy's character interaction.

However, 99% of the folks who go to Surf's Up seem to rave about the interaction - even if there are only 4 or 5 characters in the place at the time.

Minnie & Friends has the most characters onsite at one time out of all of the restaurants.

I posted this on another thread but thought it mighy be helpful here as well.
We were at Minnie's at 7:10 (first reservation) last Thursday. We saw Minnie, Daisy, Chip, Dale, Max, Tigger, Eeyore, Rafiki, and Capt. Hook...and maybe one other...The character interaction was great. Actually, it was hard to eat, b/c the characters were always stopping by. We had several visits by each character. They had little Mickey waffles, French toast, omelete station, eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, pastries (the pound cake was dry), muffins, fruit (strawberries, grapes, pineapple and honeydew) and drinks (juices, coffee, tea, milk, and hot cocoa). Did we eat enough food to justify the cost? No way! But you're paying for the experienice. It was fun. We took lots of pictures and got lots of autographs all in one air conditioned place.

We used our PhotoPass + card and received the printed picture package for free plus the pictures were placed digitally on our pass. Our pictures were taken on the porch right when we arrived. Poses: family and one with my son alone and the "magical" balloons were added to it. They are no PhotoPass photogs inside so you take your own pictures with the characters.

Okay, folks - a Character Meal Superthread has been created!:dance3::cheer2:

Laurie/DizNee Luver (she is the person I asked to do it) has kindly agreed to prepare the thread and get it started with basic info, adding to it as it goes along. Everyone is welcome to share their opinions/reviews/photos there. She has eaten at all 5 of the character meals, which is very helpful, so she can shed a lot of insight on the pros vs. cons of each meal. She also takes her own extensive photos of the food as well as the characters.

Here is the link:
