    Angry No more macarena!!!

    I called disney dining in regards to this and was told that entertainment has permanantly been cut from Goof'sys Kitchen at the disneyland hotel. Just an opinion but as an annual passholdr I don't thing that was a very good move on Disney's part because I think the dance shows "macarena" are an integral part of the character dining experience. Im canceling my reservations because I told my little neices that they would get to "dance" with thier favorite characters. And I dont want to dissapoint them with the news.

    My kids used to love that! They also liked the Trashin' the Camp song where they got to go play the pots and pans.

    I think Disney made a huge mistake.

    Re: No more macarena!!!

    Awww poop! That was such a cute dance... all the little ones dancing around and making noise and whatever they wanted! Last Friday, Goofy made my friend and I dance and then was dancing with this cute little princess. Just adorable!

    I hope this isn't permanent...

    Hmm... One one hand, no more interruptions when my family attempts to eat there.

    On the other hand, the kids loved it and it added some energy to the breakfast.

    Amen to this post. I was just going to type the same thing. If dancing to the "Macarena" is that important why not just start it up on your own when Goofy or whomever comes by? Disney has great characters and I highly doubt they'd blow you off. They'd probably wave the other characters to come over and join in.

    Re: No more macarena!!!

    Maybe one of my compliants during my recent trip could have been one of many similiar to what they've had in the past. A character comes to your table that you've been waiting for for some time now and then the stupid dance thing starts and the character has no choice but to go to the dance.

    He said he was going to come back... BUT he never did. ;o(

    When I tried to track him down he said he would try to make it back to the table and NEVER came back. I was like... well it's not entirely the characters fault but the interruption.

    So I complained that everything was great, i had loads of fun but was irriated by the character having to run off in the middle of our table time. The Cast Member told me that has been an on going pattern and that she apologized for it. I didn't make a bigger deal out of it and was just happy to be at Disneyland period.

    Just a thought... maybe this dining experience will be so much better without it. I did enjoy Goofy walking through the serving area with a huge pile of plates and dropping them all over the place, is that gone too?

    A downgrade in characters, not to my knowledge but I wouldn't be suprised.

    I would be just as satisfied with the simplicity of the old Goofy Kitchen where the characters just came around to each and every table for a greet and photo op..., life was so simple then.

    Re: No more macarena!!!

    Isn't the Macarena just a little outdated?

    I think it would be best for Goofy's Kitchen to come up with an original song, but not something that pulls guests away from their tables.

    Re: No more macarena!!!

    The first time I when to Goofy's I saw 7 characters there.

    Pluto,Goofy,Max,Minnie,Geppetto,Jasmine,Alice.

    Second time I when I only saw 5 but only meet 4 of them.

    Pluto,Goofy,Chip and Mulan. Dale was the only one I didn't get to see.

    Third time I saw 7

    Pluto,Goofy,Minnie,Chip,Dale,Alice and Jasmine. So it seems like you can meet up to 7 characters there. Has anyone else seen that many or more then 7 there?
