There are 5 different Character Dining locations, 2 in Disney's Grand Californian Resort and Spa, 1 in the Disneyland Hotel, 1 in Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel, and One in Disneyland on Main Street U.S.A. Each character dining is a unique experience of it's own, with characters, and menus varying one from another. Every option is one guaranteed to be magical. No matter while location you choose, you and your family will enjoy!
We love going to the Plaza Inn on Main Street U.S.A.. The best time to go is early in the morning before the park opens, this allows us to eat and enjoy some Disney magic without missing any time in the park. We always get to meet Minnie and other fun characters at this dining experience. Some of our favorites here are Fairy Godmother, Pooh Bear, Tigger, Eeyore, Captain Hook, Chip and Dale and sometimes others like Piglet, or Pinocchio. The breakfast here is always delicious and we can find something for everyone to enjoy.
You will not go to the Princess Dining at the Napa Rose in The Grand Californian and leave disappointed. It is absolutely magical and whimsical! You get to see each princess throughout your experience, they come and greet you before, during, and even after your meal. The special one-on-one time that each guest is given is something that every little girl could dream of! Don't let the price scare you away, this is an experience that is worth every penny.
Story Tellers Cafe all the way! It is the closest to the park since its just inside of the Grand Californian Hotel. You get the classic characters, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip, Dale, its the best selection and just so much fun! We love going and enjoying the grandeur of the hotel and then sitting down and enjoying some incredibly delicious food with incredibly fun company.
