Food, fun and characters! Our 5 & 10 yr old grandchildren joined us on a trip to Disneyworld and we wanted to make sure we took in a character breakfast. We stayed at Grand California Hotel so decided to have breakfast at the Storyteller's Cafe and are happy we did. The buffet was wonderful and included many options for eggs,... More

I've eaten at the restaurant's character breakfast buffet in the past and thought it decent enough, so when we planned to meet with family who live in the area, we decided to try them for dinner. Reservations were easy enough to get, even with the marathon people flocking, and so I figured it would be a simple meal. I was... More

We waited too long to make a Saurday evening dinner reservation. Storytellar's had only a 35-45 minute wait, so we waited. No characters work the dinner hour. Restaurant family friendly. Limited choices on menu, but ample choices on dinner buffet. One of our party of six chose buffet and rest of us ordered from menu. Kids' menu available. Our waitress... More

Tired of the usual California Adventure dining options, we decided to give this place a try. Two of our kids (9 & 7) went for the buffet. They are notoriously picky eaters, so loaded up their plates with fruit, chicken nuggets, Mac & cheese, and ofcoutse dessert. We were happy with the options available to them, but stunned when the...

Came here for lunch on the way back from the park before my son's nap time. The staff was attentive and they had a good lunch menu. My wife had the salmon salad and said the salmon was cooked perfectly. I had the steak salad with a small strip steak. Steak was perfectly cooked medium rare. Would come back again!

I always love it when characters come to you rather than spending your time in multiple queues to meet them! Chip and Dale and Kenai from Brother Bear are the highlights here. There were plenty of options for breakfast, including omelettes / eggs made to order, fruit, pastries, hot and cold traditional options.

We had a great time at Storyteller's! There were lots of options for breakfast, and an omelet station. The food was fresh and good. We took our time here and met with all of the characters multiple times. Kenai was so impressed with our Disney spirit that he gave us Honorary Citizens of Disneyland buttons. The other characters were Chip... More

An enchanted start to a magical day! The breakfast buffet was amazing! Everything you could want! Don't miss the Mickey shaped waffles! I loved the made to order omelettes with so many options! Chip, Dale, Pluto and Meeko all visited with the kids several times and posed for some great pics to start the day. You can also order fancy... More
