Thank you, I'm glad it had info you could use!! Goofy's will offer you the most food choices at their buffet.....so it would be a good choice!!

I've never seen any characters from Rio at Disneyland (I think if they movie had done better......that might have helped getting them into the park......lol)

Okay narrowed it down to Goofy's Kitchen, but I can't find a breakdown of prices, also, in your opinion which is worth while breakfast, lunch or dinner my kids are not picky about food at all.

The price for Goofy's Kitchen runs from $27.99 to 32.99 for brunch and $33.99 to 37.99 for dinner.

I think it's all preference on if you want to do it as a breakfast or as a dinner. There will be more dinner type choices for the dinner but the brunch will offer choices for breakfast & dinner/lunch foods. All good!!

I chose dinner just because it was a character meal choice we could do outside of prime park hours (and kind of a nice relaxing way to end the day when you don't care how long it takes since you're not trying to get back to ride more rides). I thought their mac 'n cheese pizza and peanut butter and jelly pizza was fun at dinner!

Does anyone know if they allow sharing at the character meals? It would be great if I could get just one plate for my 3 & 6 year old DDs to share.

Thank you!

Character meals are a fixed price per person and do not allow sharing. Given that their prime customers have lots of kids in their party (an most are buffets) it doesn't make much economic sense for Disney to allow this (for the same reason it makes great economic sense to you

That's a good point. There are only 2 of the 5 character meals that offer a dinner option. It's a nice way to end the day.

pharmama is correct, you are paying for the character interaction as well as the food....so no sharing meals. The child's meal (3 to 9) is $14.99 I believe for both meals (brunch/dinner).

Is Stitch always at the Surf's Up! breakfast? He is my sister's favorite character and, as far as I am aware, he is never in the parks, so that would be the main reason we would do a character meal.

No character is guaranteed at any of the meals, but I've never been there or heard about anyone being there when Stitch wasn't there. Good Luck!!

The current rotation for the Disney Visa character meet n greet is Minnie and Stitch. So if anyone in your family has a Disney Visa (including debit cards) head over there!

We are planning on having breakfast at Ariel's Grotto on one of our DCA mornings, and I was wondering if they have reservation times before the park opens like they do for the Minnie and Friends breakfast in DL Park?

The last I knew, it was off to the right of the Monster's Inc (kinda behind it) in Disney's California Adventure Park.

I can't answer this for sure........2 yrs ago, we had a breakfast time that was right at park opening (and I believe it was the first seating). They had us enter a certain gate and then were escorted into the park. I really don't know how it's being done currently.......hopefully, someone can answer this for you. If we don't get an answer.....you can always call Disney Dining and inquire: 714-781-3463
