Fun Character Breakfast

We had a delicious character breakfast here! It was a buffet that cost around $30 per person (including juice and coffee). The omelette station was delicious! There were only a few characters there for our breakfast. We saw Meeko, Chip/Dale (sorry! not sure which one) and a bear (I think it's one... read more

If you are looking fir a quality breakfast at the Disneyland Resort, you can go past the buffet at the Storytellers cafe. The food was fresh and very well printed that the character interaction with guests ensured that everyone had a great time. Not cheaply any means but a experience to remember.

We visited with a 5 and 8 year old for a character breakfast. The food (buffet style) was excellent and almost worth the entry alone. There is an omelette station, bacon, sausages, eggs, hash brown, pancakes - everything you would expect. The characters themselves all made their rounds in the hour we were there (10am - 11am) and we had... More

My family had breakfast here. The food selection and quality are rather disappointing considering their pricing. But food isnt the reason why this venue is popular. The kids love the cartoon characters that walk around and play with them. Kids happy, parents happy.

Buffet style restaurant located within the Grand California hotel complex. Somewhat western style with lots of Disney characters for children. Service staff are excellent. Food is very good. For such large turnovers in patrons (especially little children) it is amazing that the restaurant remains very clean. I would caution that the restaurant is very popular for all three meals so...

We came here a few years ago and ate and ate and ate. Couldn't get enough, so this time my expectations were very high. The buffet wasn't as good as I remembered for the price. It was average. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Also, as always it is beautiful inside. If we go again we won't get the... More

Really good food and service but if you want to make sure to eat there, make a reservation because if you don't you might not be able to. A year ago we did their morning character buffet and if was fun because the characters some around and you can get pictures with them...We were a little shocked when our bill... More

We enjoyed a dinner & a character breakfast. Reservations are highly recommended during the busy season, however CA schools were back in session for our visit so we were able to get a table with only 1 days reservation for dinner. the food was excellent & spendy which is to be expected. we choose the dinner buffet, not a lot...
