Welcome to those of you joining me from Growing Up Disney and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail.
Normally when we travel to Disney parks, we travel to Walt Disney World — so I was all set to write about my favorite character dining restaurants there. But then, when I started thinking about it, I decided that I would write about the two character dining restaurants that we did at Disneyland. Those were Ariel’s Grotto and Storyteller’s Cafe.
Ariel’s Grotto was a dining location we ate at for lunch. Located at the Paradise Pier part of Disney’s California Adventure Park, it features a meet and greet photo opportunity with Ariel when you first arrive, and other Disney Princesses during your meal. We enjoyed our lunch, and we met Ariel, Snow White, Mulan, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella.
The day I surprised the girls with their trip to Mandara Spa — and the day we went to see the Dodgers game — was also the day we ate at Storyteller’s Cafe. The food was good, we all opted for the buffet, but you could also order breakfast items off the menu. For us, though, the characters were why we came — and they went out of their way to come see us for pictures and autographs! We saw Chip & Dale, of course, but we also saw Brother Bear, Koda, and Miko from Pocahontas. Mico, in particular, stayed with us for a long time, and we were very thankful to him for doing so!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the characters that we got to meet while at Disneyland. It was a memorable trip for many reasons,
Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Disney Donna Kay.
