Love that if you are spending lots of money to have characters come to your table, that the food you are served is good too. Soup and salad were great. Lobster salad was good, corn cakes good, tri tip was okay. We were very happy we chose it for our character experience.

We went for breakfast -they only serve breakfast at 9 -10 and open the park at 10 (?)- so when I booked my table the system gave me an 11am option to reserve. I did so and came expecting to eat breakfast and instead it was already lunch and had a fixed menu with terrible options for kids! I had... More

This was worth every penny!!! My granddaughter loved meeting several of the princesses and getting a picture and autograph with each one. On top of that, the food was absolutely delicious!! You must make a reservation!

We had a 9 am breakfast at Ariel's Grotto on Sunday this past weekend. Our group split up when we arrived at the park and two people went to check in at Ariel's Grotto while the others went to get in line for Anna & Elsa meet and greet tickets. It ended up that our return time for Anna and... More

Celebrated my daughter's 16th birthday by having lunch at Ariel's Grotto. A premium character meal was included in our vacation package, and this is the best one we've attended. We thought the service was excellent, and our food was delicious. Each princess is announced by a master of ceremonies, and then visits each table individually. Yes, it is corny, but... More

We have been to Ariel's Grotto before for lunch and dinner and neither were too appetizing to our palates or our wallet. We decided to try it out for breakfast since we have our own Disney princess fans in the family. Our reservations were for 9:10 am, the park opened this day at 9 am. There was no one to... More

Our family for 4 adults and 2 little princesses, ate breakfast with the princesses. We had attended this experience two years ago, some of the changes we did enjoy. I like how the princesses are announced now, the master of ceremonies announces each one and does a cheesy dance as their theme song is played. Then each princess visits the... More

I so wanted to love Ariel's Grotto! Took our daughter here for her first birthday princess luncheon. The experience itself was great--we got to see 5 princesses from the comfort of our own table. They were very sweet & took the time to interact with the kids which was great. You only see Ariel as you come in for the... More

The food was overpriced, like all places in Disneyland and DCA, the service was quick, but the food was really not good. I made the reservations so that my girls could see some princesses, but in the end, we saw more princesses and other characters in the park, and it wasn't worth the exorbitant price. My husband had the ribeye,... More
