    What is the earliest time you can do character dining at goofy's kitchen for dinner and what characters are there. Also should we do it our first day or last day

    Hi, Pamela!

    I’m so glad to hear you’re planning a trip to The Happiest Place on Earth!

    Goofy’s Kitchen, located at the Disneyland Hotel, offers a character meal at both brunch and dinner and would be a great restaurant choice to finish off your first magical day at the resort. Dinner generally begins at 5:00 p.m. Goofy and many of his friends will visit your table as you enjoy a robust buffet-style meal featuring a carving station, fresh catch of the day, seasonal vegetables, salads, fruit, many desserts, a do-it-yourself soft serve sundae bar and more food choices specifically for kids. Goofy’s Kitchen is one of my favorite character dining locations because of the wide variety of food choices and diverse character selection.

    The character lineup varies from day to day for most of the character meals at the Disneyland Resort. Pluto is often stationed at the front of the restaurant for group photos with parties as they arrive, in addition to personally visiting tables. Other characters we met during our most recent meal there included Dale, Rafiki, Goofy and Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother. 

    Dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance by calling (714) 781-DINE (3463). I hope this information helps, Pamela! Please feel free to ask me any other questions you have as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation.

    Wishing you magic,
