I used to think character dining was a waste—an overpriced meal just eating up my in-park ride time. Prices may change but as of 12/31/18 it is $39 for adults, $23 for children (ages 3-9) plus tax and tip (read about how to handle gratuity here).

I have since tried most character dining options at Disneyland Resort, and there is a reason I keep coming back. Actually, several reasons!

  1. I love the character dining options outside the parks because you don’t need a park ticket.
  2. I love the food! Yes, I actually enjoy a good buffet.
  3. The character interaction is truly exceptional and simply can’t be matched with quick meet-ups inside the parks.

Where is Mickey’s Breakfast at Disneyland located? Mickey’s Tales of Adventure character dining is located at Storytellers Cafe inside the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

You can park on-site at the hotel with validation, walk through Downtown Disney or exit California Adventure Park right into the hotel to get to your character dining reservation.

You will need a dining reservation but you WILL NOT need theme park admission to attend this meal. You don’t even need to be a hotel guest to eat here.

Who else have you seen at Mickey’s Breakfast? We’d love to see some of the critters from the previous character breakfast added to the rotation. Add your Disney character encounters to the comments.

Bonus tip: please speak to a Cast Member early and often if one of the characters seems to skip your table. We had a group of 4 tables waiting and waiting for Mickey Mouse. We had to speak to Cast Members 3 different times, it’s ok to speak up. 🙂Pluto at breakfast

Mickey’s Breakfast Food

Here’s where things get tasty! We met for a 10:30 breakfast and enjoyed a massive spread of food. Buffet options abound here, especially if you go late enough to get the brunch switch over which happens at about 11:00 am.storytellers buffet

We all piled our plates at breakfast with a variety of eggs, bacon, sausage, yogurt, pastries, omelets, Mickey waffles, pancakes and French toast sticks.

I always think it’s worth it to order a custom omelet, walk around and fill your plate with other food while it’s being made. Mine below had mushrooms, spinach, green peppers and cheese.

You can also get the infamous cereal flavored milk. I took one sip just to be adventurous but it felt like sipping someone’s leftover cereal milk.

I can’t get past that mental image. Yuck! If you need something else to drink, coffees, sodas, juices and milk are all included. Storytellers Character brunch
