    Hi! We were thinking about doing a character breakfast. Do you have to be staying at one of the Disneyland hotels to attend a character breakfast at one of their restaurants? Thank you!

    Hi there, Traci! Thanks for asking the Disney Parks Moms Panel your question!

    As you know, there are character breakfasts offered at all three Disneyland Resort Hotels. The great thing is you do not need to be a hotel Guest in order to dine at any of the restaurants located within these hotels! So, let's go over the different character breakfast options at the hotels. (Keep in mind that all character line ups are subject to change at any time.)

    Disney's PCH Grill at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel offers the Surf’s Up! Breakfast with Mickey and Friends. When I ate there last, we met Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, Pluto, and Stitch (this is one of the only ways to meet Stitch at the Disneyland Resort).

    Goofy's Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel also offers a really fun character breakfast and has the only character dinner on property as well. This breakfast buffet features five different food stations with just about every option you could imagine. Some of the typical characters here include Pluto, Chip, Dale, Minnie, and, of course, Goofy.

    Finally, you can enjoy the Chip ’n Dale Critter Breakfast at Storytellers Cafe inside Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. Another expansive and delicious breakfast buffet can be found here as you dine with some rarely seen characters like Meeko, Brer Fox, and Brother Bears Kenai and Koda. Chip 'n Dale will be there too with their zany antics to delight and entertain Guests.

    Reservations are highly recommended for these meals and can be made up to 60 days in advance. I hope you have a great time dining with your Disney pals during your next trip!
