    The Plaza Inn is one of our favorite places in Disneyland! Both the fried chicken and pot roast are amazing! Huge servings, delicious and reasonable prices. We always eat here and watch the fireworks.

    Our family’s favorite place to eat in the park! We usually go in around 2 pm for a late lunch/early dinner. Then it isn’t so busy. My grown daughter and I always split the chicken dinner and have since she was a kid. Then we have room for dessert. (Yummy) My husband and teen boys always eat a whole dinner themselves. But it is a lot of food! The service is always helpful. A great place to sit awhile and watch the parade.

    This character breakfast is wonderful. there are tons of options so everyone will find at least something (if not WAY more) that they would like. The cast members running the restaurant are friendly and provide great service especially considering it is a buffet. When we went there was: Bacon, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, ham, pancakes, waffles, cold cereal oatmeal, french toast (mickey french toast) and tons of pastries and fresh fruit! Even my picky daughters found something they liked.
    Now the characters!! WOW!! We decided on this character meal because I had heard that there were more and a greater variety than the other character meals. I would have to agree. We saw: Captain Hook, Minnie Mouse, Alice, Fairy godmother, Tigger, Pooh, Chip, Max, the The monkey from Lion King, and Gepetto. Each came by our table and stopped and made our family feel like we were the only family there! It was wonderful!!

    While this is definitely worth the money in my opinion it is on the pricy side. To make up for this I made our reservations for the seating before the last seating and we call is brunch!

    The food here is decent. It’s buffet style. They serve a variety of beverages that are also served buffet style (including nestle quik chocolate milk). But what you are really paying for is the characters. And this current trip there were eight in attendance which was a lot more than normal.

    The one thing that bothered me was I went with my fifteen year old daughter, and the interaction with her versus the younger children was significant. I understand my daughter knows the characters aren’t real, but she still really enjoys taking pictures and getting autograph books. I would have liked it more of they would have interacted with her on the same level they did the other kids. All she received was an autograph and a quick picture, while the others were talked to and hugged and such. But we still love the character meals!

    I don’t really think of it as a romantic place to eat. Or somewhere you would want to go if you didn’t have kids in attendance, unless you really love the characters!

    Great place to take the family for the Character Breakfast. Food is very good and a lot to choose from. Although some of the staff are not quite as friendly as the rest of the park. Some just plain don’t smile or acknowledge you but all and all a fun place.

    Whenever I go to Disneyland, I always make it a point to eat at one of the character breakfests at least once. However, this is the one I go to the most often.

    The price is high. Around 24 bucks for a single adult, but it is an all you can eat and plus you have the characters there who come up to your table and take pics w/ you and your kids. When you put that into account, it makes the price more tolorable.

    The last few times I went here, my fiance and I have seen Minnie (every time), Brer Fox, Captain Hook, Fairy Godmother, Gepedo (im sure im spelling that wrong), Winne the Pooh, and sometimes Piglet and Tigger.

    The omelet station is great as is the bacon, sausage, and waffles.

    If you have the funds and especially if you have kids, this is a must do. For one you get a very filling breakfest (my fiance and I often skip lunch after this which saves money) and two, you get a lot of pictures with many differet characters out the way without having to stand in line in the sun.

    This is one place in Disneyland where we actually felt like we got our money’s worth. Hubby and I shared a chicken dinner and it was more than enough.

    What: Breakfast, buffet.

    Price of Entrees: about $78 for 2 adults 2 kids.

    perfect for all children. Ok for Couples if you like th echaracters.

    Be Sure To Try: everything.

    General Tips: This character breakfast experience far exceeds all the others offered by Disney. Most inexpensive and 11 characters came out during our meal. They actually play with your kids.

    Extra Comments: By far the best place to eat breakfast in the park.

    What: Chicken – $13.49, coke, 3 Kids Pasta $6.49 (came with drinks).

    Price of Entrees: about $30.00 (with AP discount)

    If you sit close enough to the bushes by Main street you might catch the 6:00 parade.

    Be Sure To Try: I really like the marinara pasta sauce and mashed potatoes.

    General Tips: The chicken portion is very good, we sometimes split the plate because it’s so much food.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: AP gets a discount and free refills on fountain drinks.

    Extra Comments: Be sure to know what you want before entering, they have two separate lines (one for pasta, one for chicken) which I think is ridiculous, but that’s how it’s arranged.

    What: breakfast, wonderful buffet.

    Price of Entrees: $25 each

    Great place for kids, excellent for birthdays.
    Okay for Couples: Yes, good choice for a fun honeymoon.

    Be Sure To Try: The fresh fruit.

    General Tips: Bring your camera for the breakfast with Minnie & Friends, lots of great photo oppurtunities.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: Its one flat rate for the buffet, so come hungry and get your money’s worth.

    Extra Comments: I spent my 30th B-Day there with my Mom and had the best time. Well worth the money and the time. Great tasting food and lots of selection. The charcters come to your table and spend time with you throughout your meal. Great chance for photos and alot of fun.

    What: I got penne pasta with marinara sauce and a large bottle of water and a piece of carrot cake, Marcel got the chicken breast with a large bottle of water and Lorien got the Kid’s Penne meal.

    I have consistently found the pasta in this restaurant to be oily. Although this is a cafeteria style restaurant, a CM at the front helped us!

    Although I find a price of $6.49 for a KID’S meal at a restaurant with no wait staff way too high. Thankfully, we got a discount.
    Okay for Couples: Yes, the dining room is very pretty with crystal sconces and velvet curtains, and the outdoor dining area is really nice on a patio that has heat lamps when it’s cold. (It wasn’t on this day.)

    Be Sure To Try: the carrot cake was delicious and I sure hope it counts as a vegetable because it’s pretty much the only “veggie” my daughter ate all day.

    General Tips: This is a good choice for lunch or dinner if you like fried chicken. (I really don’t)

    Extra Comments: We went at 4:29 PM and there was hardly anyone there.

    Dont miss – the carrot cake was outrageously good – once again, however, the piece was easily enough for Marcel, Lorien and I to share.

    What: we ate dinner here. Great idea was to eat when the parade was going on, less people in the restaurant. Only problem was its cafeteria style. This was aproblem because my husband walks with a cane. We found a bus boy who carried his tray outside to eat. The food was great…he had penne pasta with meat sauce and I had prime rib.

    Price of Entrees: $7.00 for pasta and $15.00 for prime rib.

    too dark outside and heaters were too hot

    General Tips: If its too cold sit inside. Sit by a light if outside.

    TheMouseForLess Tip: Very generous food amounts and free refills on drinks.

    Extra Comments: Check your tray before you leave if you eat outside. It was so dark I forgot to pick up my change and annual pass of my tray. Checked at lost and found and nothing. I know the busser could at least see the money on the tray.

    What: Dinner, to go took to rivers of america for fantasmic!

    Price of Entrees: $13.50 each

    Be Sure to Try: Stay away from the chicken.

    General Tips: Chicken breasts are under cooked, come in pre-cooked, and just need to be reheated in fryers. not heated long enough, I received some still bleeding. Mashed Potatoes luke warm, small portions for side items.

    TheMouseForLess Tip: Go elsewhere.

    Extra Comments: Rude manager, treated me like a dumb female with the raw chicken, finally refunded meal price when informed I am a restaurant cook who knows all about the chicken.

    Has a great kids menu. The setting is old and romantic.

    Be Sure to Try: PASTA.

    General Tips: There are plenty of places to sit here (outside and inside). Inside has great air conditioning.

    Extra Comment: The straws that come in the kids cups change colors!

    What: Minnie Character Breakfast, mini mickey waffles, eggs, sausage, deluxe ordered omelet.

    Approximate Price of Entrees: total for breakfast was $55, all you can eat for two.

    Okay for Children: Absolutely. There were mostly children when we were eating.
    Okay for Couples: Not really, my husband and I are kids at heart and I would say for breakfast it was a very good time but for dinner not so much, loud and crowded.

    Be Sure to Try: EVERYTHING ON THE BREAKFAST MENU!!! IT’S ALL GOOD.

    penne pasta with alfredo sauce

    Price_of_Entrees: family of 5, about $60 or less

    I have a picky eater and he loved his meal.
    We ate there as a family, but would definately eat there as just a couple

    Be Sure to Try: The pasta and the chicken are both great choices!!

    TheMouseForLess Tip: Very filling for the money. One of the best deals in the park in my opinion. Discounts for AAA and APs.

    What: Lunch – 2 Penne pastas, one with marinara sauce, 1 with Bolognese sauce, and two large bottles of water

    Approximate Price of Entrees: $11.99 per pasta, $2.25 per bottle of water

    the portion was huge, but both our pasta dishes were oily. we got there as it opened for lunch and there was a short wait. The restaurant is really pretty, one of those counter service places that feels like a sit down because of the decor

    Okay for Children: Yes. Even more so for the character breakfast, or if your child is celebrating a birthday.
    Okay for Couples: Not really the most romantic setting

    Be Sure to Try: As I said, somewhat disappointed in the pasta dish.

    General tips: We were there exactly when they were opening for lunch (12 noon) and there was a short line. This is very close to the Baby Care Center for those with small children.

    TheMouseForLess tips: the pasta dish was huge. I only ate half of it. It’s certainly possible for two people who aren’t ravenous to share one.

    Extra Comments: If you eat at this restaurant at night, sit outside and look at the twinkling lights!

    What: Dinner. Cobb Salad, Pasta with Meat Sauce, Soda

    Approximate Price of Entrees: Cobb Salad $10; Pasta $11; Soda $2.50

    Be Sure to Try: Cobb Salad and Pasta were great! The restaurant also has fried chicken and pot roast. We have had both on other visits and they are excellent, huge and can be shared.

    General tips: There is seating inside and outside. We ate during the parade at a table on the raised patio right outside the dining room and we could see some of the parade. The restaurant was not crowded during the parade but as soon as it ended there was a huge line to get in.

    TheMouseForLess tips: I ate the Cobb Salad and had the 2 kids share the adult pasta. They have kids meals (pasta or fried chicken leg) but the kids pasta is pretty small. The Cobb is huge and I usually cannot finish it, take the rest to go and eat it as a snack later. We got 10% off with our Annual Pass. The sodas are refillable here!

    Extra Comments: This is a favorite of ours. The Cobb Salads are tossed with bleu cheese dressing but if you ask they will prepare you one minus any ingredients you don’t want and with your choice of dressing on the side. When you enter you get a tray and silverware and then proceed to the different stations (salads & desserts, pasta, chicken, pot roast, drinks) each with their own line so if you have more than 1 adult split up in the lines to save time. After you have all your selections, you go to one of the cashiers. There are cashiers on the left and right so be sure to check who has a shorter line.

    What: Breakfast Buffet

    Approximate Price of Entrees: It was included in our package, but when we checked in I think the cashier said it would be $90 for the four of us.

    Be Sure to Try: The buffet was great – we especially liked the omelet station! Wide selection to choose from elsewhere.

    General tips: We had PS which seems a must. We waited about 15 mins after we got there before we were taken in to a table. There was a long line of people waiting to get in, and this was at 10:00 in the morning.

    TheMouseForLess tips: Don’t know – we had voucher from our resort package

    Extra Comments: We were hoping to see a lot of characters. But we only saw Dale and Tigger. The others were there but they were swamped with kids and we finally had to be on our way. The cast members should have made the kids and parents go sit at their tables – we could hardly get out because Fairy GodMother had at least 15 people around her in the aisle – a zoo!

    What: Princess Breakfast

    Okay for Children: Most definately yes during the character meals
    Okay for Couples: Yes.

    Be Sure to Try: Made to order omelets

    General tips: We were seated outside & enjoyed watching the characters and people watching on the outside of the restaurant

    TheMouseForLess tips: Don’t know any

    Extra Comments: This particular character meal has plenty of characters, but families tend to chase them down, so they don’t tend to get to your tables as easily. So you may need to go in search of, otherwise you may not see all the characters in attendance. This was our least favorite part, was not getting the characters to ourselves like at Goofy’s Kitchen and Ariel’s Grotto Character Meals.
