    Why can't I make reservations at storytellers Cafe or goofys kitchen for the month of December

    Hiya, Melissa!

    Ah-hyuck! Welcome to planDisney! I love reading about people who are looking into character breakfast buffets with their favorite Mouseketeers. There are so many phenomenal dining options at the Disneyland Resort, but Goofy's Kitchen and Storyteller's Cafe are truly something special. Nothing beats indulging in scrumptious food and having your favorite characters come to you instead of having to search for them around the theme parks. On our last visit to Goofy's Kitchen, Minnie brightened my toddler's day with an epic 2-minute and 33-second hug – talk about magic, am I right?! 

    So, Melissa, your question piqued my curiosity: What's the deal with December reservations at these character dining spots this year? Well, guess what? As I type this out, you can book reservations at Goofy's Kitchen for a festive December feast! They've got a Holiday Breakfast and Brunch Buffet featuring glazed pork belly benedict with butternut hollandaise sauce and some seriously tempting pancakes with powdered sugar, syrup, and cookie-butter icing. Oh boy!

    And after 4pm, there's a Holiday Dinner Buffet with herb-marinated turkey breast, bourbon-glazed holiday ham, prime rib, stone crab claws, and a whole sleigh full of other holiday comfort foods.

    I tell ya, Melissa, after checking out this menu, I'm scheming ways to tiptoe myself and my little Mouseketeer over to Goofy's Kitchen for the holidays, too!

    As for Storyteller's Cafe, at the moment I'm writing this, they've got their regular menu up with plenty of tables available throughout December.

    I hope this information helps you book the magical holiday dining that you were planning, Melissa. If any more questions pop up for you, just come back and visit me again. I'm bouncing with excitement to share my best tips to make your visit as magical as can be!

    Your pal,
