I have been to Goofy's Kitchen a couple of times in the last 10 years. It is a great experience for the kids but the food was always just OK from an adult perspective. Our experience at Ariel's Grotto was fun for the kids like Goofy's Kitchen but the food for the adults was really impressive. We had a great tri-tip and a really nice pasta with sausage. The appetizer tower, fresh bread, and dessert platter to share were all decadent. We had a really pleasing experience for the whole family. The only reason I would recommend Goofy's Kitchen over Ariel's would be if you have more boys than girls in your family, then Goofy's Kitchen may be a better choice because of the boy characters that they get to take photos with. My 7 year old son wasn't as impressed with the princesses of Ariel's Grotto as he has been with Mickey and friends at Goofy's Kitchen.
