Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures at Napa Rose, Goofy’s Kitchen, and More Reopening!

| | |

Character dining is finally returning to Disneyland! We were very excited to be one of the first ones to partake in the new Mickey Tales of Adventure Breakfast at Storytellers Cafe when they opened last month. Now, several other character dining is reopening!  Let’s break it all down here:

Disney Princess Breakfast Adventure at Napa Rose

Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures at Napa Rose

We are excited to announce Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures at Napa Rose will again be delighting kids (and adults!) with everyone’s favorite Disney Princesses. When you arrive at Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures at Napa Rose, Disney Princesses will greet you on a private patio for an exclusive photo opportunity. Throughout the experience, little princesses and princes will enjoy fun Princess-themed activities and receive a special keepsake to remember their special morning!

The menu at this magical breakfast features delicious breakfast and luncheon offerings. Start with three-tier towers of appetizers, which may include chia and granola parfait with mango, kiwi, and coconut; ham and cheese sandwiches with cranberry cream cheese, and lobster salad crostini with a dinglehopper. (How cute is that?)

Kids can choose from house-made mac ‘n’ cheese, princess waffles, and barbecue beef sliders for the main course. A selection of savory options for adults includes scrambled eggs, turkey sausages, vegetables, and a selection of meats, such as applewood-smoked pork belly and braised short ribs.

Chocolate princess cake pops, petite raspberry tarts, seashell macarons, sorbet, and more are the perfect sweet ending to this enchanting experience.

Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures at Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa opens on Aug. 26, with booking available Aug.11.

Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park

Rise and shine for “Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park,” an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet at Plaza Inn. Join Minnie and some of your favorite Disney pals while dining on hearty breakfast classics: made-to-order omelets and Mickey waffles, French toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, breakfast potatoes, fresh-baked pastries and breads, fruit, and hot and cold cereals.

Minnie & Friends for breakfast at Plaza Inn opens on Aug.12, with booking available Aug. 11.

Be sure to click the links for each restaurant for the new protocol and menus for our Character Dining experiences.  While the experiences may look a little different, guests can still expect to smile and wave, snap selfies, and make unforgettable memories with some of their favorite Disney friends as they make appearances in the restaurants.


There are also some dining options reopening, without characters, very soon! Take a look at the options below:

Goofy’s Kitchen

The fantastic all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast and dinner buffets and serving stations at Goofy’s Kitchen will welcome guests back starting Aug. 18. Although Goofy and Friends will not be hosting at the reopening, they will be returning at a later day – stay tuned for more details.

Start your day with made-to-order omelets, Mickey-shaped waffles and pancakes, French toast, sausage, bacon, eggs Benedict, smoked salmon, pastries and fresh fruit, and fresh vegetables. And don’t forget to try Goofy’s very own peanut butter and jelly pizza!

Dinner offerings include fresh fish, seasonal vegetables, tossed salads, mac & cheese, and pizzas, as well as an onstage meat carving station. And a trip to the decadent dessert buffet is a must at Goofy’s Kitchen!

Goofy’s Kitchen at Disneyland Hotel opens on Aug. 18, with booking available Aug. 11. Note: Goofy and Friends will not be hosting at the reopening. They will be returning on a later day – stay tuned.

Trader Sams

Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar will start taking reservations for lunch AND dinner beginning Aug. 11, with the first reservation date Aug. 15. We all know it’s a real jungle out there, so be sure to book a reservation!

Carnation Café

Carnation Café at Disneyland park, opening Sept. 16, is all about classic comfort food! Start your morning with Mickey waffles, and for lunch (and dinner!), enjoy some of Walt’s favorite chili or Chicken fried Chicken. Maybe find a new favorite like the Parmesan-crusted Patty Melt or the new Short Rib with homemade Mac and Cheese. For me? I can’t wait for the Fried Pickles!
