All-you-care-to-eat buffets at or near the park
Just doing some planning to visit the parks in July. Has anyone eaten at an all-you-care-to-eat buffet in or around the parks that was especially good or cheap? I tried "Captain Kidds (sp?)" last time and was deeply dissapointed (as was my stomach). I LOVE the House of Blues gospel brunch, but that only occurs on Sundays. As I recall, it is also quite expensive. Please post experiences and prices (as you remember them) to aid me in my quest to plan great meals for myself and my family.
BTW, I'm not really interested in regular table-service restaurant reviews in this thread, although I have loved reading your comments in other threads.

There is a Hometown Buffet on Katella near Euclid Avenue, about one mile west of the DLR, in the same shopping center as the Food4Less Grocery Store.
On Harbor, there is an International Buffet (Chinese) in Garden Grove, just before Garden Grove Blvd. (Large shopping center on the west side of the street).
It's not terribly cheap, but the buffet at Storyteller's Cafe is always good.

If you're looking for a wide variety of dishes to choose from, and don't mind some characters sharing your meal time with you, we've had great experiences at Goofy's Kitchen. We've only done breakfast, which was terrific, but know people who have had dinner there and they highly reccommend it. Like most character dining in DL it isn't all that cheap, but if you're a AAA member you can get a discount.

Souplantation is a chain out here of all you can eat salad bars. I personally think they aren't that good, but maybe you will like them . I don't know the exact locations around Anaheim though.
It was a good day!

Goofy's Kitchen is great. We prefer dinner for character interaction, but my kids (young adults) prefer the breakfast foods for eating...

Goofy's Is OK
Goofy's kitchen is better for younger kids. Don't go if, as an adult, you are looking for good food (that you might find at some hotel's upscale buffet-- such as Caesar's in Vegas).
I found the servings at Goofy's to be bland, and pretty routine fare (pizza... spaghetti, etc).
The buffet at Storyteller's is expensive ($25, approx) considering the limited choices (if memory serves correct: salad, fruit, pasta, chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, prime rib-- and not much more than that). The menu NEVER changes here (I go about once a month).
One thing, though: The Storyteller's buffet has a GREAT asortment of desserts! Cookies, and probably five or six different pies, cakes and tarts.
Goofy's has more menu items than Storyteller's (and it MIGHT be a bit cheaper).
I'd go to Bucca de beppo and order that HUGE family meal that offers an assortment of appetizers and several entrees.
Anyone know the price of the House of Blues Brunch? We will be there on a Sunday & this sounds like fun!!!
My family & I will be going to Disneyland in July can you tell me where Bucca de Beppo is located? I'd like to eat there.
Ewwww, Hometown Buffet...
I love Storyteller's breakfast buffet.
I also like their dinner buffet, but they don't necessarily have it every night.

Buca di Beppo is just south of the Disneyland Resort on Harbor Blvd between Orangewood and Chapman.
