Does Goofy's Kitchen breakfast still have chicken nuggets and cheese pizza? What about all of those desserts (pudding, cupcakes, brownies)? I saw pictures that showed these things, but they were from 2010. I am trying to decide between Goofy's or Surf's up and it is the food selections that have me going back and forth. We have some picky eaters and some that don't really like breakfast food.

What are the best character meals for gluten free kids? We are planning on doing Ariel's Grotto for one meal and either Goofy's Kitchen or Surf's Up on the day we leave (we wont be doing a park day this day).My daughter is gluten free right now, so I thought I would see what people's experience was with gluten free dining

My son really only wants to do a character meal if he can see Captain Hook. Anyone know if he regularly goes to the brunch at Goofy's Kitchen?

Trying to decide between Minnie & Friends, Goofy's Kitchen or PCH Grill with DD who is nearly 3. Any recommendations?

My fave is the storytellers or PP character meal with Stitch and Mickey... But for a 3 year old, Minnie's is great because it has the Pooh characters and some others that might be more recognizable for your dd! Enjoy! 3 is such a magical age!

Surfs up has a more Polynesian flair to the food (I love it!) but if your kids are picky they'll likely find more brunch type items at goofys...

Thank you! I looked at the Storytellers, but she doesn't care as much for the critters yet, I think you are right and Minnie's is the way to go! She is so excited to go to Mickey's house, only 3 more sleeps to go.

My friend and I tried the Surfs Up Breakfast with Mickey and Friends because my friend loves Stitch, and I wanted to make sure his first character meal was awesome, so we HAD to go there. I was pleasantly surprised with everything.

We went last week Tuesday (September 3rd). My friend is vegan, so since I had woken up early, I walked across the street from the GCH to ask if they had anything that could be made for him. The chef said there is rice, fruits, potatoes and they could make waffles for him. I wasn't really sold but my friend really wanted to go to a character meal. (I'm vegetarian myself, and eat vegan food often, so I'm pretty skeptical when places aren't really accommodating).

We arrived around 930 and got in at 935. They noted the food restriction, and brought out the chef to speak with my friend, so I got up and ate

Here is the selection of food that i remember:

Potatoes
Scrambled Eggs
Chicken
Rice (which I appreciated being from Hawaii)
Bacon
Sausage
Salmon & Bagel station
Assorted Fruits
Beef Chilaquiles
Smoothies
Cereal Bar
Pancakes
Waffles
Baked Bananas Foster French Toast
Pastries
Oatmeal
Omelette and Huevos Rancheros (I didn't notice the Huevos Rancheros until I was too full and someone else had ordered. It was listed in really small print at the Omelette station)

Nothing was particularly great - it was buffet food. Though the potatoes were good and the rice was yummy with my eggs (they also have soy sauce if you want for your rice, if you ask).

For my friend, the chef made vegan gluten free waffles which were really good. I liked them better than the buffet waffles. They also had soymilk which was also surprisingly good, not too soy-ish.

Because it wasn't too busy, we got a lot of good time with the characters and took pictures with all of them. It was really fun interacting with the characters - Daisy was telling my friend to get more food after looking at his empty plate, Pluto gave each of us a "kiss", and I got to ask Stitch where was Lilo? (Apparently that was a sore spot for him, since he just looked down. HAHA)

Watching the kids do activities was fun, even if we were only one of two childless groups there (There was another childless group who were not shy about getting time with the characters, so we didn't need to be either). We saw Stitch, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie and of course Mickey

Here's my favorite photo of the day:



Of course, my friend didn't take very good pictures of me, and the pictures I took of him were much better :lol: :rofl:

All in all it was a great time. I have been to Goofy's kitchen and Minnie's at Plaza Inn, but this was probably the best character meal I've had at Disneyland. I was always skeptical because the variety and characters seemed limited but it ended up being more fun than any other character meal before.

Last December one of our party was gluten free. We ate at Goofys kitchen for dinner, I mentioned it when i booked and again when we checked in, someone from the kitchen came out and spoke to my friend telling her what she could and couldn't eat. There were plenty of options for her and it was all very easy.

We went to WCT, Blue Bayo and Goofy's Kitchen

Each resturaunt the chef comes out and speaks to you and makes sure you have options and they meet your needs.

Jolly Holiday also has a fantastic GF Blueberry Muffin she loved and they had GF bread for sandwiches.

I would like to pose this question as well, does Goofy's Kitchen serve the desserts, nuggets, and pizzas at breakfast - I'm wanting to do an early (I'm aiming for the 7 a.m. slot!)breakfast meal but those items are some of my son's favorite things about GK and I want to make sure he can get some worms in dirt (hehe) and pb&j pizza if he wants them Thanks!!
