Had not been to Storyteller's in over a year. Returned for the dinner buffet. Service was excellent, Food was excellent. Was going to order from the menu but opted for the buffet and fully enjoyed the salmon and beef. Desert selections were limited but light enough to sample all 4. Really enjoyed the pomegranate pannacotta. We arrived just after dinner... More

This was our 4th character meal of the year, food was about the same as the other buffets except Goofy's kitchen which has more food but took away most of the character's. Anyway they have rare character's here which is nice. Besides the chipmunk, we saw the raccoon from Pocahontas, brother bear and another bear, and brer Fox, walking by... More

After not going to Storytellers for over a year and a half I returned to the breakfast buffet with great anticipation. To say I was greatly disappointed by what I found would be an understatement. This once delicious rare breakfast stop has turned into an overpriced run of the mill buffet. All of the delicious rare finds like the applewood... More

This was a nice place to eat especially when it's conveniently located inside the hotel. The food was very good and the decor was very, well...Disney! Staff was cordial.

We visited this restaurant in the late afternoon of the Saturday that the Christmas Day Parade was being taped in Disneyland. We weren't staying at the hotel, so it was great that you could access this restaurant directly from DCA. Although there were no characters wandering around, the restaurant was very quiet - just what we needed on a crowded... More

Went here quite a few times. They have a choice of a buffet or ordering off the menu. Throughout your meal characters come to your table and will sign your autograph book and take pictures. Sometimes they play the music for hokey pokey and have guests come up and dance with them! So much fun!! You have to eat here.... More

Breakfast at this venue is a must if you have kids in your group. Disney characters are on hand to mingle and interact with every table.... My grandson loved every moment!!

We had reserved dinner plans here 60 days in advance and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table!! Once seated, we went to the buffet where the assortment was sparse, with roast beef, chicken and some type of fish as your meat selections. In a word, "bland". The beef was not tender, the chicken tasted old and the... More

From dried out bagels to waiting in an extensive line to gather your food, this was so disappointing it really is to fully express without inappropriate language. A supposed character breakfast (which we paid the character price for) and we only got to see two... 2 characters come to our table. For our final comment... Never again!

We had a terrific character Breakfast here. Its an all-you-can-eat meal, so can double as both breakfast & lunch, making the high price nearly justified. All the food & service was great, the entertainment was cute. They don't rush you out.
