Prices from March 2023
I’ve been several times to various character meals with my kids and even just with friends. I enjoy them that much! At first, I struggled with the price point. I didn’t want to pay for all of us to dine with characters we regularly meet in the parks. Especially now that characters are even easier to find with the Disneyland App and random sightings around the parks.
But let me tell you, I have had so many incredible experiences character dining at Disneyland Resort, that I have gone multiple times on my own dime.
It is that coveted one-on-one time with Disney characters I enjoy the most— otherwise you would just dine anywhere at the Disneyland Resort.

Goofy’s Kitchen Character Dining Menu
I have dined for breakfast and dinner and found the spread to be absolutely amazing for the sophisticated palate and a down home meal especially for kids. There was such a variety of food, including a carving station—I could have stayed there all night.
Whenever I eat dinner at a sit down restaurant in Disneyland I usually try the salmon or fresh catch of the day. The fish is always a stand out. Plus add in the soft serve ice cream and massive dessert bar (even available at breakfast), and you have a winning combination.
I always enjoy a made-to-order omelet with Mickey waffles , French toast sticks and a fountain drink.
You’ll also find a variety of fresh fruit, pastries, cereal, yogurt and more. You will find ample juice selections, sodas, coffee and hot cocoa. Don’t forget about the famous peanut butter and jelly pizza!
There’s something for everyone on this buffet menu! I went through quite a few times just trying to decide. Luckily, you can sample a bit of everything.
I even made a dessert plate from just a few things at the dessert station. Yes, bring your appetite for food and amazing character interactions! Don’t forget to grab discount Disneyland tickets as you plan your vacation to the Disneyland Resort.

Will the characters be available at an 8pm seating?
Yes, all dining at Goofy’s Kitchen is character dining. They will be there to meet you!
I hadn’t heard that Mickey was showing up at Goofy’s Kitchen. -and doing the pre photo op in the evening. Is this new? Is it because chef goofy is at the Food and wine festival? Just curious – We will be there for dinner in two weeks for the first time! I’m excited
That’s been standard for a while, but I would love for you to double check that when you go. It’s been a bit since I’ve done dinner there.
Was anyone able to confirm is Mickey there for dinner?! Thanks in advance!
I checked on that for you Katie and it seems Chef Mickey hasn’t made an appearance in 2023 yet.
I’m trying to decide which option is more optimal…dinner or breakfast…I have reservations for both and want to make the best choice…
If you can do one on an arrival or departure day I’d go with that option. Otherwise, whichever one you think you’ll enjoy more of the food. I know some people have a hard time enjoying all the breakfast offerings if they’re not quite hungry yet.
We have breakfast reservations at Goofy’s just a few days from now! Wondering how you would recommend we get back to the park entrance as we’d like to head straight to the park when we’re finished. Can we just walk thru downtown Disney to get there? 1st time and so excited!!
Hi Tara, I am so excited for you! Yes, it’s super simple and you can walk right through Downtown Disney or even board the Monorail to get inside Disneyland.
