Is Goofy's better for Dinner or Breakfast?

My son recently decided he wants to eat at Goofy's while we are at Disneyland over Thanksgiving. Now I am trying to decide if we should go for dinner or breakfast?

We are only going 3 days and already have dinner plans one evening. I am worried that if we make another set of dinner plans we may miss some of the evening events (like parade's or shows). I was thinking of doing an early breakfast though that way it wouldn't take time out of our park time. However, if one is much better over the other I would prefer to do that.

Thanks for the help.

I'm partial to dinner but that has a large part to do with the fact that I'm not really into breakfast food. I would consider doing an early dinner around 5 which would get you back into the parks for nighttime activity. Doing breakfast usually takes a big chunk out of your morning which is the best time to ride rides with the lowest wait time. I've personally had great character interaction at dinner time. DBF actually got to dance with Cinderella twice during one of our visits!

The breakfast is actually served as brunch past Noon. So if you and your family love breakfast foods for anytime of day, it can make a good lunch as well. We'll be doing this on our last day as we leave to go back home. Pack, eat, go.

We enjoyed dinner. Lots of good choices. We are not a big breakfast family, we rather get to the park early. Our character interaction was good (saw Minnie, Dale, Pluto, and Mad Hatter).

Even though my son wanted to do breakfast we decided to do dinner to actually save money - since the plan was to do breakfast at the hotel everyday.

I am more of a breakfast person, but I like the dinner too -- there are a lot of choices at the buffet tables!

I am the same, but that is why I DO like Goffy's kitchen for breakfast. They always seem to have a lot of other options (including proteins) other than eggs, potatoes, and and waffles.
