Breakfast with the Characters at Disneyland

Breakfast with the characters at Disneyland is a great adventure. The food is good. There are so many different characters to see your child will really get to interact with them instead of just a quick shot and go. I’m glad we decided to do it. Read more to hear about my family’s experience.

Birthday Celebration

To celebrate my friend’s son’s birthday she planned on going to breakfast with the characters at Disneyland. She asked if we would want to go with them since we have decided our sons are best friends. We said yes and it ended up being more fun than I expected and a really good meal.

When we arrived and checked in. Disneyland recommends having reservations for all of their dining experience, although sometimes you can get lucky without them. We were taken to our table after getting a quick group shot taken. The cast member takes photos with his camera, but they are willing to take one with your own if you ask. It turned out great. It is nice to have a picture of everyone. The boys even looked at the camera.


The Food

Once we arrived at our table we were told we could go to the buffet when we please. My son is allergic to peanuts so the chef came to our table to learn about his allergies and brought a special tray of food just for him and told me what foods to avoid at the buffet line. The Disneyland staff is always very helpful when it comes to allergies or other special requests.


Even before my friend and I had gotten are food the first character had stopped by. The boys sat and smiled with him. It was fun to see them interact with Max. While our hubbies were getting their food another character arrived to say hi. We would take a few bites of yummy food and then snap some pictures with the various characters.


Character Love

My son would wait patiently (most of the time) for the next character to arrive and with arms open wide would run into the different characters arms. He loved giving hugs and kisses. I think the characters enjoyed his affection as well.

We left full and happy we were able to see so many different characters in such a short period of time. I never would have done this if my friend had not invited me to go with them, but it was such a fun experience and the food was really good. I actually think we may do it again one day.

For planning purposes. The Disneyland website rates this as $$, adults cost $29.99, children $15 and 3 and under are free. 🙂 See Disneyland’s website for more details.

    • It was. Way more fun than I expect. I would have never ever done it, but now kind of want to do it again. In a few years…

  1. Oh I can’t tell you the wonderful memories this post brings to mind! My little ones are now taller than I am, but they still love Disney. We used me have a family reunion at Disneyland when my kids were little and I treasure the pictures and memories of those times.

    • It is an amazing place and is so much fun and a great place to make amazing memories. Glad I could bring you some happy memories. 🙂

    • Any age is good for Disneyland, but as they get older it gets more fun. But it was nice the first time we went when our son was 6 months and none of the rides scared him. 🙂

  2. Wow… that sounds so fun! I mentioned yesterday that I have not been to Disney… but $30 each just for Mom and Dad? I suppose for the experience of it, it would be worth it and knowing that the food is actually good helps too! This is great to know ahead of time to budget for it if it’s something you want to do! Great post!

    • Thanks. Everything is expensive at Disneyland and for a brunch (though there was no champagne) it was over the top expensive. I would have said $$$, but my mom suggested I go with what the Disneyland site said. We normally stick to the cheaper venues when we visit, but every once and awhile you have to splurge a little. It was so much better than expected and I would do it again.

  3. That really does look like so much fun! I love the one of Eeyore kneeling down and the boys with Goofy’s son(?) I had heard of this before, but didn’t know what it was all about until now. I would totally be interested in something like that!

    • According to my friend he is on the Disney channel and his name is Max, I had no clue who he was either. There are a few different spots at Disneyland and Disney World that offer this opportunity. It is best to make reservations (we did) and it is fun!

  4. Oh, this looks like so much fun! I grew up in South Florida and so Disney is special to me. Even when our sons were older than your so we visited Disney and spent the last hours with pens and autograph books getting character signatures and pictures!
    Thank you for sharing!!

    • I can’t wait for the opportunity to go to Disney World. I love Disneyland, but think it would be a whole new experience to go to Disney World.
