We ate here on a Mediterranean night. The buffet had plenty of good choices. On this particular night, Pluto and Goofy were at dinner. They seemed to give a lot of attention to the kids in the room (we were 2 adults, so while we did get pictures with the characters, they didn't spend a ton of time with us). We were staying at the Swan (that's where it's located), so it was very convenient. If I wasn't staying there, I probably wouldn't make a a special trip, but it was very good. If you are a family who wants a reasonably priced character experience, however, this is a good bet- some of the others are outrageously priced and hard to get reservations at.
