Storyteller's Cafe Character Breakfast

Can someone tell me if we can order off the menu for breakfast instead of getting the buffet? The buffet just isn't cost effective for our family but my girls really want to meet "the bears".

Are Koda or Kenai most always there? That's the main characters they are after.

P.S. I did a search to get the info but the most recent discussion came up from 2008... things might have changed since then. TIA!

Yes. You can order from the menu - but keep in mind, the menu is not cheap. For example, when we were there in October (my 3rd time doing the Critter Breakfast), the buffet was $22.99 (before tax & tip), and the dish that I would have ordered from the menu was $17.99!! Only a $5 difference, so, in that case, the buffet (which is small) made more sense. But you have the menu option, so if that's what you need, it's there! I think the buffet is going up to $24.99 for summer, but I would probably still order it over paying $17.99 or higher for one plate of food equivalent to the size of a Denny's Grand Slam or less. Actually, the menu items have probably been raised or will be raised as well - for summer if not before. So I would expect that what was $17.99 will be a dollar or two more by summer.

We have seen Koda and Kenai the last two times we ate there. Also, Chip and Dale are always there. Usually, Terk or Meeko or someone like that will show up as well. You can see from the character meal photo thread in the DL Community section of the board who the usual characters are (I would suggest starting at the end and working backwards in the thread, just to get a sense of who has been there more recently, rather than starting at the beginning):

We've enjoyed a few late breakfasts at Storyteller's ~ each time DD and I share something from the menu - this is very cost effective for us, if we both got the buffet that'd be quite a bit more. DD doesn't know about her upcoming B-day trip but I recently asked her where she'd like to eat the next time we visit DLR ~ I specifically said "Pick 2 character meals" she chose Ariel's & Storyteller's.

I love that the food is brought to us ~ no buffet to deal with

So sharing is okay at a character meal? I'm okay with it being "frowned up" lol, but thought it might be a requirement that you order a meal/buffet for each person in your party.

You would think so (that they require each person to order something at a character meal), but I have heard of other folks besides DisneyMomma81 sharing there, so I guess it's more common than we would have thought.

I am not sure about the breakfast but I wanted you to know that Koda and Kenai are in California Adventure, so if you dont want to do the breakfast you do have other options.

was there this morning and yes they were both there and yes you can order off the menu but like it was said before it's almost as pricey and you can chose a little of this or that

We ate there 4 times, and one of the times Kenai was absent and was being replaced by Rafiki.

Like letthembelittle pointed out Koda and Kenai are doing a Meet & Greet a couple of times per day at the Grizzly Park recreation area, direct at the entrance. It's never really busy.

Also, depending on when you go (if the Redwood Trail Challenge isn't closed), Koda and Kenai star in their own show daily at DCA (and I think they're available for pictures afterwards).

You will always find Koda, Kenai, Chip, Dale, and Meeko.

If you want to meet the bears without the expense of breakfast, they are also always out by the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.

We saw Koda or Kenai at the redwood creek challenge trail and they were sooooo much fun. They'd steal my kids stuff and hide it from them. It's a shame they don't do autographs though because of their paws. Maybe you could get them to scratch up a page though :lol:

This is old info (from Dec '08), but we had a late seating there, and Chip and Dale had been gone for an hour. The hostess told me that they come out for the last time at 10:30, and after that they have other things to do in the parks.

But we did see Meeko, K&K, and Terk.

Is that show back on? When we went in November the show hadn't been running for several months.
