    Timing for Character Breakfast?

    We are planning on booking Goofy’s Kitchen this trip, would booking either a Tues or Wed make a difference?
    Is 9am a really bad time to show up during a weekday in August?
    Does anyone know how long it would take to walk from the Clarion to Goofy’s Kitchen?

    Re: Timing for Character Breakfast?

    Not positive on the walk time...I'm sure someone can chime in there. I don't think it will make a big difference- Tues or Wednesday. I always make a reservation just so I know we have a table at the time we want. I think you can make a reservation 60 days out. We've never had to wait- just walk in, give our name and we've been seated. 9 is probably one of the busier breakfast times?? But that is just a guess.

    Have a blast!

    I doubt Tues or Wed would make a difference, but keep in mind that the first few hours are the best times (that is, the least busy) at the Parks, and you may want to take advantage of those few crucial hours. I always eat early for that reason alone, but that's just me. I'll leave your last question to those more knowledgeable than I.

    According to Google maps, it's about 1.2 miles. Take a look

    I ate there on Tuesday at 10:20 am and we had to wait 10 minutes to be seated and it took more than an hour to finish eating even though it didn't feel that long. The PBj and Mac and cheese pizza are to die for! You have to try them.

    That didn't quite work right since it followed roads instead of sidewalks. From the Clarion walking up Disneyland Dr. cross Disneyland Dr, on north side of the intersection that is just north of the Paradise Pier Hotel. Then follow the sidewalk along a parking lot toward the DLH. Give it about 30 minutes it's probably about a mile walk.

    This would be my advice as well. Make the reservation for 10:30am upto 11am if you are going to the parks that day.

    OK. Thanks for the clarification on that.

    thanks for the input - we have decided to do the dinner for this trip and look at a breakfast during our November trip instead.!
