Dinner at the Storyteller was the best meal we had a Disneyland. The meal, as well as the service, was equal to some of the best you would find at a first class restaurant anywhere. The Buffett was varied, good selection, everything fresh and nicely prepared. Loved the creamy chicken corn soup, dessert options, pasta dishes. Steak off menu was... More

Reservations work best. Did not want buffet or characters so this was the best time. Also needed quiet rest break from rides and crowds. Friendly staff and great service in the true Disney fashion.

Fund breakfast with the characters, expect to to be interrupted by Chip & Dale, Pluto, the Brother Bears and other friends. At breakfast you only can get the buffet and it is reasonable for the spread but still on the pricy end. It is worth the experience however and the servers can't do enough for you. It is a good...

We made reservations ahead of time for 3:45. I did not realize that they did not serve the buffet until 5:00. We had 14 people, so we could not make other arrangements so we ordered from the "lunch" menu. It was mid priced for Disney, not as expensive as the buffet. Burgers were good. Service was slow. We were done... More

If you are hungry, this is the place to go. If you have a picky eater, this is the place to go. If you are on a budge, this may not be the place to go. They had about every food you could want, pizza, omelette's,desserts of every variety and everything in between. I could not eat my moneys worth!... More

I have had the character breakfast before, but I am reviewing my dinner experience that I had this weekend. I was not staying at Disney, but it is a central location where it is easy to meet up with my daughter. I made a reservation for us and we both received 3 hours of free valet parking with our dinner.... More

We had breakfast here on our last day. The buffet was very good. I would have liked there to be more interaction with the characters.

I have many food allergies and the Chef here was awesome. The waffles were so tasty. Made me a hashbrown omelette because of my egg allergies. They were just amazing. We enjoyed the food and the characters were wonderful.

Our kids are big Chip and Dale fans, so we did this breakfast so that they could meet the characters. Yes, it is expensive for a buffet breakfast. But the food is fairly good, and there are lots of choices. We liked the details like the Mickey Mouse shaped waffles. The characters spend a decent amount of time with you... More
