So what's the deal with the princess breakfast now? We went a few years ago when it was the tower of food to share at your table. But now it looks like you order from a menu? Is it still a "premium" character meal? I know it's all about the interaction & not the food, but ...

I actually really enjoy Storytellers, because you can order off the menu if you don't want the buffet. And it felt much more relaxed than some of the other character meals I have been to. Already have it booked for the first week of May.

Full disclosure...I haven't been to any other character meals at DL Have been to plenty at WDW, though.

We've been twice to Ariels, 2011 and 2013. The tower/shared plate still exists just for appetizers and dessert. Each diner orders his/her own entree. You can see the menu on All Ears. Yes, it's still a premium meal (Ariel's and Goofy's are the 2 premium ones).

We vastly prefer Goofy's over Ariel's and plan to do that again on our upcoming trip.

I have another question for anyone who has gone to the dinner at Ariel's Grotto: since they stopped doing the World of Color dinner package there, they have the princesses at dinner now, correct? My husband found some info saying they weren't at dinner, but I think that was old info. Thanks.
I had lunch at Ariel's last week, and was told the princesses aren't there at dinner.

Thanks for bumping this, I was looking for it.

We did Surfs Up breakfast last year {sept 13} and was happy with the food and the character interaction. We stayed a PP and had a 8 am ressie. DL didn't open until 10, so we had time to get there without being rushed. EMH was CA that day.

We're going back again in Sept and working out the details now. Thinking GK on check-in night for dinner, and staying at DLR. Debating if we should do AG for breakfast or lunch and if we should do PI for breakfast the other day. DD is too young for ST.

How is the AG interaction/character selection breakfast vs lunch?

I have a character meal question. As part of the ABD, I get three Character Meals (twice at Storytellers Cafe and once at Plaza Inn), but I am not sure I will have time for a 45 minute meal at Storytellers on the morning I leave (have a 1 PM Flight and expect to leave by 9:30 AM). Is it fine to tell the character handler or server that you don't want the Characters to visit?

If you show up by 8am, you should have enough time. When I was there before, there really aren't a lot of characters at Storytellers.

Is this the high or low season price? Does anyone know the cost of Minnie's breakfast for high season? It's supposed to be cheaper than Goofy's, but I thought it was close to $30, perhaps it's closer to $25.

Just at Ariel's two days ago for lunch. Appetizers are now selected individually by each person. Entree is same, selected individually off a set menu. Dessert was a trio for each person except the kids got a duo of desserts. Characters were Ariel (at entrance only), Snow White, Cinderella, and Belle. I thought it was a very good meal and interaction.

We had Storytellers for breakfast on Tuesday, 4/29. We were told the menu wasn't available, it was only buffet. There's another thread going stating that Storytellers is not longer doing the menu for breakfast, it's all buffet now. Just an FYI.
