    What are your favorite character dining experiences in DL/CA? We will do 2, maybe 3. No breakfasts, probably dinner but maybe lunch. My girls still love princesses so thinking Ariel's Grotto....which others?

    I wish I could post pictures of my oldest daughter at age 4 when we had a delicious meal at Ariel's Grotto inside Disney California Adventure. We got to meet what felt like all of the Princesses and my little girls were astonished. It was a fantasy come true for them. From Snow White to Ariel to Mulan, they were all there at each table making it such a magical experience. We took great photos, got all the autographs and they were just remarkable with my little girls. A great experience all around. For breakfast try Storyteller's Cafe' inside the Disney Grand Californian Resort. Take some time to enjoy the gorgeous lobby and let the kids sit in the kid sized rocking chairs. My princesses were rocking like champions. Inside the Cafe you will all appreciate the ode to the Arts and Crafts movement that line the walls across the restaurant. When Chip and Dale arrive with their pals, the fun really starts. My kids got to meet some of the gorillas from Tarzan and we got some hilarious pictures of them all dancing before we sat down for some warm pancakes, hot coffee and all the fixings. These are both fun ways to experience the magic and enjoy some fine Disney cuisine. Enjoy these lovely ideas and feel free to ask for other suggestions. We got so many and are happy to offer our assistance to you. See you at the parks.
