Would anyone care to share pictures of their character dining experiences?

I would love to see some pics from the character dining offered at Disneyland. If you have any and would like to share, I would appreciate it. We are planning the final details of our upcoming trip. Thanks!

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!

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.


Lilo & Stitch 2007





Minnies 2008:







Ariel's Grotto 2008:





Chip & Dale Critter Breakfast 2008



Notice the "Hey Chipmunk, your arm is in my breakfast!" look?



Terk was very eager as you can see.

Assorted Shots from Goofys:

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 a couple more from Goofy's, from December 1992 and from December 2008:









And one more hug from Goofy for the road in December 2008! I loooooooovvvvveeee me some Goofy!





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:



And Dale again:

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! Some inspiration I am, eh??
