They have turned the menu into buffet only at breakfast, however that is what we always get. Many delicious breakfast foods that we always end up overeating. There are always great characters there too for photo ops. Chip & Dale, Brother Bear, etc. We always eat here at least one time each visit to Disneyland.

We came from NJ with our grandchildren who live in San Diego to have a family vacation. We booked breakfast with the characters. No Mickey Mouse....No Minnie Mlouse....No Pluto.....and so on and so on. The characters that were there were friendly and came to our table often but a 4 and a 5 year old really want to see Mickey...

I didn't find this place anything special. The nice part was the staff. They took wonderful care of our group. The buffet is just ok. Great for families that want to get in and out quickly. The desserts were the best part. No characters came to visit during our dinner.

I went there as part of a group to meet family members who were not coming into the park. You don't need a ticket to go there. It is in the Grand Californian Hotel in California Adventure, and the setting is beautiful. It was very well air conditioned on a very hot and muggy day. Although it was a busy... More

We have been here quite a few times. The Chip and Dale breakfast buffet was good but overpriced like everything disney. Lunch probably offers the best value and the best food. They have burgers that are good as well as sandwiches and salads all at "reasonable disney prices" The dinner menu is different than the lunch menu and it is... More

No better place to have a quick bite to eat. A bit pricey, but you are right at the park when you are done

Paid 27.00 for a ten year old to eat fruit loops and bacon. Seriously. Kids price is -9. What kid under 12 eats 27.00 worth of food in one sitting! You are no longer allowed to order off a menu it's all buffet style. Definatly will skip! Room service is way better.

We had a 4PM reservation at the Storyteller's cafe. They were more than ready to seat us, and it took no time before both the drink order and bread was brought to our table. We missed the buffet and went at lunch time, but regardless, the service and food were outstanding. We started with an appetizer (Margherita Flatbread), and my... More
