    I know there's been a number of Character Breakfast threads, but I still can't decide. We did Goofy's last time and it was fun because the kids all got to dance around at times, but I've been reading that the food is a lot better at Lilo and Stitch or Storytellers. I just wonder if there will be enough characters to keep the kids happy at either of those (That's why we're going in the first place). One other thing- Goofy's is $4 more per person. Hmm, what do you think?

    One other other thing: Do any of these places do characters at dinner, or is it just the breakfast?

    thank you thank you :wave:

    I love the Lilo and Stitch Breakfast. There is lots of character interaction, the kids all get up and dance with the characters. They give you plastic lei's and a button. The food is good and you can order ala carte, or from the buffet. It's my favorite character meal, but it is breakfast only.

    I'm pretty sure Lilo & Stitch and Chip & Dale both only offer character meals at breakfast. I really enjoyed my two meals at Storytellers and thought the character interaction was just right. Nothing over the top or loud, and just enough to be able to enjoy your meal and still visit with some furry friends.

    Oh, and the banana stuffed french toast is out of this world!

    Our family of 6 is doing the Lilo and Stitch character breakfast in June. It will be our first one and I am very excited. I've done lots of research and I've heard many nice things about it. Not only the interaction, but the food as well. So I'm very excited.


    If you've already tried Goofy's then why not give one of the other two a shot, with the goal of eventually doing them all. Then you'll know for sure which you like best. :thumbsup2

    Good luck and have fun! :)

    We love Lilo & Stitch breakfast! We've also done Goofy's, Minnie's and Princesses. We didn't like Goofy at all but we enjoyed Minnie and the Princesses a lot. Our order of preference is
    Lilo & Stitch
    Minnie
    Princesses
    Goofy

    We've done them all and Lilo and Stitch had the most intertaction. The buffet had alot of really different (but good) stuff. Only Goofy's and Ariel's do lunch and dinner

    Hm, more to think about. Does anyone else besides Lilo and Stitch show at the Lilo and Stitch breakfast?

    There are lots of characters at the Lilo & Stitch Breakfast. Besides Lilo and Stitch there is Pluto, Daisy, Minnie ... I think I'm forgetting some.

    We did Goofy's for dinner... which sounds exactly like how your breakfast at Goofy's went. Dancing and marching every half hour or so. The dinner food was great for kids, the adult fare was not super great though... just not many choices. Lots of yummy dessert though!

    Thanks everyone. I think trying something new is a good idea now that you mention it. :rockband:

    when we went to lilo and stitch we saw:

    lilo
    stitch
    minnie
    pluto
    goofy
    max

    it was eh. 3 of those listed above never came to our table.

    when we went to minnies we saw:

    minnie
    gepetto
    gideon
    ??? (the fox from pinocchio)
    eeyore
    pooh
    wendy
    captain hook
    chip
    dale

    each character came around to our table, and some came twice. some jumped in on other characters, trying to "hog" the camera time. that was by far our best character meal as far as interaction.

    We have enjoyed them all for various reasons, but give the nod to Lilo & Stitch as the best. Of course, that would be if you are close to PP Hotel on the morning of. I have read stories of those who walked (with little ones) from Hojo or further to eat there and that is too far first thing in the morning in my opinion. I hope you enjoy!:)

    We love Goofy's and have done that meal every time. (This will be our third trip and our third trip to Goofy's)

    You could always do three character meals:rolleyes1

    We loved Chip & dales, did it twice this last trip... but its breakfast only.

    1st breakfast was a Monday 7:30 am, saw: Chip, Dale, Koda, Kenai, Baloo, Meeko, Terk, Brer Bear and Pluto, we were finished eating at 8:20. The kids played follow the leader with a bunch of characters through the whole place... it was lots of fun...

    2nd breakfast was a Wednesday at 7 am, saw: Chip, Dale, Meeko, Pocohontas and Timon... we were finished eating by 7:50... I think it was too early for lots of fun and games, and that seemed to be just starting when we were ready to leave.

    Well, if Minnies has lots of characters that might be good since we will be in the park that day, but my guidebook said the food was the worst there. What do you think? (Pineapple coconut scone sounds really good to me too though...) :earboy2:

    The fox from Pinocchio is Honest John. :) We saw him once in the park, he was flirting with my BFF. I told her he wanted to take her to Pleasure Island and she said "only he can take me there" and pointed to her DBF. I thought the person in the costume was going to laugh out loud but apart from a snicker or two he/she held it together well. LOL

    OP, you won't be disappointed with M & F, we had a great time there. :)
