You will almost always need reservations. Breakfast is popular, although this time we did dinner. The look of the restaurant is very plain and could be a large Denny's.
The check-in process is slow and there is always a line and even with reservations a wait for a table. This visit all the help seemed a bit overwhelmed and a little like one of Snow White dwarfs: Grouchy.
The food is buffet and has some wild items like peanut butter and jelly pizza or a chocolate pudding crawling with hundreds of gummy worms. Don't fret they have buffet items for grownups as well, like cut meats and Mexican fajitas. The food isn't great, but it's okay. We have learned Disney is easy on the spices and things tend to be on the bland side anywhere in Disneyland. Also, the food all seemed lukewarm.
The wait staff was a bit off and it took them a while to take drink orders or refill empty glasses. It was spring break and I think everyone had finally had their fill of kids; it was hard to find a smile among the staff.
The kids love the characters and they come by for a visit often, almost too often! During different times of the meal the kids are invited to do the Macarena or a conga line with Goofy, Minnie, Belle, Aladdin, and the rest of the crew. It's full of activity and the kids adore it. The grownups can't wait to get through the meal although the smiles from the kids are worth the so-so food and spotty service.
One thing I was shocked to find at any Disney property was a filthy bathroom and the bathroom at Goofy's was just that -- filthy. . . Walt would not have been pleased!
