Goofin’ it Up at Goofy’s Kitchen

image

Our last meal of the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend was at Goofy’s Kitchen. When I was planning this trip, it seemed like the perfect way to finish our stay at the Disneyland Hotel and I was totally right!

Everything starts off meeting and getting your picture taken with Goofy himself. Pro tip…have the one of the cast members take a photo with your camera so you don’t have to purchase the photo later. Yes, a cast member will roam around and try to sell you the picture they take. Of course, this is typical for any Disney Character dining experience. So, if you don’t want to pay extra, make sure to have your camera ready. Now, the picture the cast members take will probably be a little better. However, I think this picture came out really good. As I’ve mentioned before, we had the wonderful experience of dining with our new friends from South Carolina.

Inside, the restaurant, everything is bright and colorful. I didn’t get a picture of this, but there are some really cool Goofy touches in the decor. Overall, the dining area had a fun Disney vibe.

I’m glad that I chose to dine here AFTER the Disneyland Half Marathon. After all, the variety and supply of food is way too much for one person to eat. Even in this all you can eat buffet. So, it’s best to dine here AFTER you’ve burned off all those calories at the races.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Breakfast Pizza! Both David and I tried this. It was alright. The crust was a little tough. But, it still tasted good. By the way, if you read the sign next to the Peanut Butter and Jelly Pizza, you’ll see a Mack & Cheese Pizza. Brooke had this one and loved it!

For more typical breakfast fare.

If my father in law didn’t make such amazing eggs Benedict, I might have tried it here. However, there’s so much food that you find yourself passing on food you might otherwise have eaten.

image

You can even have a personally prepared omelet!

image

No Disney trip is complete without the Mickey Waffles…

image

Mickey Pancakes as well? It got me thinking….is there too much of a good thing? Hmmm.

image

They even had Chicken Apple Sausages!

image

I opted for both the Mickey Waffle and the Mickey Pancake. Sometimes, it’s just too hard to make up your mind.

image

Not only were there plenty of entrees and sides, but plenty of desserts as well.

I loved these chocolate rice crispy treats!

There was also plenty of fruit to choose from. So, you can be a little more health conscious if you wish.

Ice Cream station…

with lots of choices for toppings!

image

It was all good, but the Mickey Waffles can’t be missed.

image

And the Mickey Pancakes. They need to add these at the Walt Disney World Resorts. Don’t you think?

image

This is a character meal. Up first for us was Pluto. He was having fun with my camera.

image

However, we did manage to get a picture with him too!

image

Next up was Snow White…

image

Then, Dale. For me, Dale was one of my favorites. He congratulated us for our finishes at the Disneyland Half Marathon Races!

image

Of course, Chip wasn’t far behind Dale!

image

Then, Captain Hook came by. He was pretty fun as well…

image

After sharpening his hook, I’m glad he didn’t try to use it on us!

image

We had to wait around for a little bit. However, our wait yielded a meeting with Jasmine. As you can see, this character meal has a little bit for everyone. We saw two princesses, one of the fab 5, Chip and Dale, and Captain Hook for all the pirate lovers out there.

Overall Impressions

I LOVED Goofy’s Kitchen! Breakfast is a hard meal to mess up too much. I enjoyed this meal just as much as I enjoyed Chief Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort in Florida. There’s a lot of similar items to eat and the quality is about the same. So, if you like Chief Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort when you visit Walt Disney World, you will love Goofy’s Kitchen. The ambiance of Goofy’s Kitchen is fun and colorful. The walk around characters were engaging. They are very mindful that they are attempting to make it all the way around the restaurant. So, when you try to distract them, they will very nicely let you know that they will get to you, but are headed a different way at the moment. I saw this with a couple of the characters.

image

The only downside for some may be the price. However, this is a character breakfast. So, you should expect to pay a lot more than you’d pay at other dining options for breakfast. Then again, you also won’t get to meet Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale, Captain Hook, Snow White, and Princess Jasmine at those places….and will likely not be getting those sweet Mickey Waffles or Pancakes.

Having breakfast at Goofy’s Kitchen was the absolutely perfect way to end this magical Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. I’ve got to admit that I was a little sad walking back to the car to head home after dining here. It was all so wonderful! I love runDisney races because of everything that goes around the races as well as the races themselves. I will have to find the time to take in a dinner at Goofy’s Kitchen sometime.

Have you ever eaten at Goofy’s Kitchen? Have you dined at any other Character dining restaurants? Which ones were your favorites and why?

    1. Well, we did have to wait quite some time to see Jasmine. I’m sure the Cast Members working at Goofy’s probably would have liked us to leave much sooner. However, we wanted to see Jasmine. So, we waited. It was worth the wait.

      Thanks for the shout out on your blog! I commented on it today.

    1. Brooke and I had a blast at breakfast with you and your wife as well. I’ve only been to Chief Mickey’s once. So, you could be right. To me, both places had a similar vibe. I’m more of a Mickey fan, but I liked both. Ha! Maybe it’s because I can go to Goofy’s Kitchen any time I want to. Hmmm.
