This is NeverNeverland:
And Sunday was her little Birthday shindig at Disneyland! Since we started the morning with a Storytellers Cafe Breakfast, I thought I'd turn this into a trip report / review of the breakfast too.
For those who don't already know, Storytellers Cafe is located at the Grand Californian Hotel. Walk-ins are occasionally welcome but it's better to give Disney Dining a Call for reservations 714-781-3463 (put it on your cellphone already!)
Here comes the bday girl!
Here's NeverNeverland w/ her friend Sarah. I forgot her MC handle name.
NeverNeverland's REAL LIFE friend Sierra (sp?), who hasn't been to Disneyland in TEN years!
VillainsFan joined us and look! PrincessButtercup suprised NeverNeverland!
Borneo Goes Bananas also wishes NeverNeverland a happy birthday!
And haha... I didn't happen to get a photo of me or Mousercise (sorry!) so just pretend that we're present for all of the festivities.
STORYTELLERS CAFE is one of my favorite restaurants in the Disneyland Resort. It's one of those places with options! A regular menu with good selection as well as a fairly extensive buffet.
This is my first visit during breakfast hours though! A look at the menu didn't take long for me to just go with the buffet for $21.99. Reason being is that there wasn't a whole lot of other choices that were unique. Except for maybe specialty omlettes ($16 price range), pancakes, and steak ($21.99). Everything else you can get at the buffet.
^^That's a sample of what the buffet offers minus the scrambled eggs and pastries.
On and there's also these little babies:
Mickey Mouse waffles made to order! These are YUMMY. You can also get pancakes but none of us ordered it.
What's also good about the buffet is that drinks are included! Coffee, OJ, Diet Coke.. you name it.
Breakfast at Storyteller's also includes a little more 'character' than usual!
RAWR! Koda attacks these boys in a booth.
After having a buffet of his own, he comes to our table.
Rosie O'Donnell is also around. Ugh, I can't even look at her cartoon character without getting sick. Oh Waiter! There's an annoying gorilla in my food!
^Get off the phone!
I MEAN IT!
Hey look, it's KENAI!
^^ NeverNeverland says you have a small totem.
RAWR!!! WHAT DID YOU SAY??!!!! KAPOW!
They bear hug and make up though.
Happy Birthday to the song of Zipadeedoodah!
The waiters brought over a small treat:
A crown fit for a birthday girl:
And that was Storyteller's!
So what did I think of the food? Meh.... I wasn't that impressed. Maybe because I love their dinner buffet so much more, but I thought the food was very bland. The waffles though were delicious and the fruit offered is a lot fresher, more varied, and sweeter than most buffets, so that's certainly a plus. There's also an omlette station for you egg fans (not me) so that would also add to the value. So for $21.99, this all you can eat is probably a pretty good value. And don't forget the AP discount!
And there's also the super cool side entrance into DCA that never has a line...
It looks like an asteroid!!
Next up: More fun at Disneyland!
