This restaurant is inside the California Adventure hotel. We came here for breakfast with some family. This is a breakfast buffet with Disney characters roaming around saying hello and posing for pictures. The food is pretty good and has the usual eggs, bacon, sausage, pastries, fruit, cereal and of course, a mickey mouse waffle but this place is pretty expensive.... More

The food was similar to the other character breakfast's we've been to and the service from our waiter was decent. However, the character's at this meal were incredibly slow! We had finished eating our entire breakfast before we even saw a sign of a character. I asked the waiter how many characters were going to come by and he said... More

Expensive but open late and pretty good food. There is platy of people eating in the restaurant at peak times so maybe go in at off peak times. Our service was quick, friendly and food was tasty and descent but again pricey.

Family of 5, children ages 16, 13 and 11 - we stayed at the Grand Californian and loved the convenience of such a wonderful restaurant located right next to the swimming pool area. Reasonably priced for a Disney vacation, about $100 for our entire family for dinner and that included adult drinks so really not that bad price-wise. We did... More

You MUST keep in mind tat you are getting resort pricing. The food is very good, we didi the breakfast buffet with characters...$29.95/person they make fresh omelettes, waffles, etc... service was a bit on the soft side.

We did not realize the characters only came around during the breakfast buffet. We stopped in 10 minutes late for breakfast and had a boring overpriced lunch. Not what we had in mind. If we had known we would have gone somewhere else. This took up our time and money. So if you are late for breakfast don't bother.

This is a perfect breakfast spot for the kids. It's a lot of fun and brings many smiles. That alone deserves 5 stars. The food is average so you are paying for the entertainment which is always needed when you visit Disney!
