“If you realllly love Mickey, Minnie, Daisy and Donald....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

If you are a Disneyphile, then you will love this. But be warned! It is only these 4 characters. It was long intervals for my 3 yr old granddaughter to interact with them. It would be much better if they brought in other/additional characters to fill in the gap and rotate them so each section has a character for the children to enjoy. They dance to a prerecorded set of songs and there is no "wow" factor. You pay for this buffet so that you can have close interaction but it disappoints. It could be much better. And you are timed. I think it was 2 hrs to eat and see the characters. The buffet offered Japanese, Western cuisine and kids favorite (like chicken nuggets, pancakes shaped like Mickey). I guess I am used to Disney doing things great....this just should be better...

“Yummy breakfast with Mickey and friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Had a buffet breakfast here during the second day of my stay in the Disney Ambassador Hotel. The buffet spread was good with Japanese and Western choices. The pancakes shaped like Mickey's face were yummy and so were the beef patties, scrambled eggs, potato salad etc.

The delightful part of the meal came when Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck came round the tables to take photos. In fact they came round multiple times so we got to take quite a number of photos with them.

“No goofys kitchen. Go somewhere else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Dissappointing. Felt like I stepped back in time to 1970. My phone is better sound system. No omelet station. Same food as 25 years ago. Time to update

“Nice food, fun atmosphere with Mickey and friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Went to this restaurant 3 times for celebration with family. They don't take reservation by phone, so you got to come, put your name and ph# and wait spending time at the connected shopping mall, Ikspiari.
Selection of food was rich (many seafood, we love it) and kids buffet bar has nice and colorful food like cakes, ice cream, jelly beans, etc.
Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto and Goofy regularly walk around table to table and give chance for picture together. Every 30 min or so, Mickie will invite us to dance together (simple, you can do from table) with music and your napkin. So fun! Kids will love it.
