My mouth waters at the prospect of Goofy's kitchen. The variety of foods offered is wonderful. The roast beef melts in your mouth, the breakfast enchiladas, made-to-order omelettes, crepes, banana splits, cookies, cakes, fresh fruit, waffles, pizzas, pancakes, salmon (2 kinds!), chicken, ham, deli meats and sandwiches, plus the basics--scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, etc, etc, etc, etc is all beyond compare and for the price, it's such a value, because of the quality of food and service. The first time we were there the characters were (duh) Goofy, Chip and Dale, the Mad Hatter, Pluto, Baloo, and maybe one or two others. It was great and it was my daughter's fifth birthday and we were having her party there, so she got so much attention from the characters! Last week it was (duh) Goofy, the Mad Hatter, Rafiki, Jasmine, and one or two others. The characters were friendly, sitting down with us, visiting repeatedly, Jasmine even crawled under the table next to us to see a boy who was scare of everyone, but I thought there were more characters last time. You can call the hotels to find out who will be there before you decide. I didn't think the Plaza Inn compared at all. I have not been to Minnie's Cafe, although I think next month we'll do Minnie's and Goofy's. I've called the hotels and Minnie's food is supposed to be comparable to Goofy's, but I haven't wanted to take the chance before. Also, I don't know anyone who has eaten at Minnie's. But I can sure vouch for Goofy's Kitchen!
