Although not the adult's favourite way to dine ie buffet style, you would have to say that this is one of the better ones. The breakfast chef is a class above the rest with his variety of eggs and his smiling can do attitude. Our waiter was only too happy to please and our 10 yr old very happy with... More

While staying at Disneyland, my family and I looked for a decent place for dinner and not break the bank. Nothing at Disneyland is cheap! We didn't even know the Storyteller's Café was a buffet, thought is was just an ordinary restaurant. They do offer a menu that you could order off of or the buffet. We decided to try... More

We had lunch at the Storyteller's Café. We came in after the lunch crowd so we were seated promptly. My husband and I each ordered the char-broiled burger. It wasn't appetizing at all. It was dry. I had to request mayo and pickles. My son enjoyed the grilled chicken sandwich. Luckily he didn't like the caramelized onions that came with... More

We enjoyed our character breakfast here at Storyteller's cafe. My 2 year old was absolutely thrilled with the characters, which made it well worth the money as far as I was concerned. I did expect for us to see more characters. Chip was there, along with 2 bears and the raccoon from Pocahontas, but that was all. Again, because my... More

This is probably one of the few places with cloth napkins where your kids can just be kids. Food wasn't bad, but the atmosphere is just so kid friendly, it made the food taste delicious! I think I actually finished my food without having to get up 10 million times. The service was great. The characters were awesome. They even... More

The Storyteller's Cafe has a character brunch, and that is always great fun, but the big story here is the food. There are made to order omelets, delicious fruits, breakfast meats, potatoes and eggs benedict. And Mickey waffles - these are always so crisp and fun to eat, too! We were impressed with the high food quality, so much so... More

The food (buffet) was super expensive and SO SO bad. I mean, really awful. Save your cash and spend it in the park. We saw three marginally lame characters which would have been fine if the food was decent - it was not.

I love the vibe in this restaurant. It's one of my top 5 Disneyland places. I always order the Lobster Cobb Salad. It's enough for two people if you are a medium to light eater and way big enough for a big appetite. The buffet doesn't seem too special and it's overpriced in my opinion, which is why I never...

Enjoy a buffet breakfast, great food and some entertainment. To go with the theme of the hotel enjoy breakfast with some crazy critters. Brother bear, Pluto and other animals will turn up to entertain you and have photos while you eat.
