Where is your favorite place to eat breakfast in the parks and outside (Downtown Disney and surrounding area)? I'm trying to plan some eating spots for my family this weekend. I never get to the parks early enough for breakfast so I'm clueless. Thank you!

My mini and I spent part of our day at the parks and ate lunch at Flo's. While there, an amazing CM named Steam, offered to help me with my tray since I was also pushing a stroller. He walked with me outside to a table and was very polite and friendly. Shortly after he stopped by and gave my daughter the Lightning McQueen kids meal holder. I made sure to give him a compliment at Guest Services. I   More...

Trying to decide between Goofy's Kitchen and PCH Grill Breakfast with Mickey for brunch to celebrate my daughter's 2nd birthday. Your opinions are much appreciated.

She's almost 2 already?!  Oh my goodness!  Where does the time go?  I'm no help because I haven't done either and my daughter is afraid of the characters!  Hope some other MWers can help! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 5:58PM
I know, I can't believe it! She was scared of the characters at first but has responded much better to them lately. How is your little one doing? - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 3:02PM
I love Goofy's  - disneyland4me  250.4 #1345 6:02PM
My vote is Goofys Kitchen - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1901.3 #88 6:03PM
We like both. Surf's up didnt have as many characters as Goofys but you got more time with them. Its more a relaxed atmosphere than Goofy's which is even more that Plaza Inn. We are going back to Goofy's for my sons birthday in April. - keepmovingforward  222.2 #1706 7:32PM

Opinions wanted: I would like to book a character dining experience for my daughter's 2nd birthday. She knows most of the classic characters. What location do you all suggest? And do you prefer breakfast, lunch, or dinner? Thanks!

I suggest Plaza Inn for breakfast...she will see Minnie for sure and others likely include Tigger, Eeyore, Chip & Dale, the Fairy Godmother and that's all I can think of at the moment.  We actually went there for my son's 2nd birthday several years ago. 😊 - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 4:32PM

Thank you! Is there one outside of the parks that you think might be a good back-up?  - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 5:19PM
There are lots of restaurants within 2 miles of parks what kinda food you like - grumpyinphx  700.9 #276 5:27PM
I meant character dining at the hotels just in case the grandparents don't/can't pay for park admission. - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 5:37PM
Yes goofy kitchen at disneyland hotel - grumpyinphx  700.9 #276 5:43PM
I second Goofy's Kitchen & The PCH Grill in the Paradise Pier Hotel also has character buffet dining. Theirs is beach themed with Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, Stitch, and I think Pluto. It's also a little cheaper than Goofy's Kitchen, but I think GK has better variety. - MimiMouse  1049.0 #173 8:11PM

My husband and I will be at the parks Sunday with our little girl for her 1st birthday. I was thinking of bringing a small handmade sign the characters can hold up in pictures with her as well as watching Soundsational. Does anyone have any other ideas? We have passes and she has already been a handful of times.

Happy Birthday!  I hope it's a magical day for her!  (Sorry, no advise.  My little one is 17) - AZDisney  610.4 #334 9:33PM

Found a lot of Jake, Sofia, Doc McStuffins, and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse items in the $1 section at Target. There are socks, pencils, coloring books, water bottles, lunch tins, snack containers, as well as play packs with stickers, crayons and small coloring books.

Earlier today I was walking past Star Tours and noticed a handful of security, Tomorrowland, and regular clothed employees surrounding a double stroller. I assumed perhaps a suspicious package or something of the sort caught their attention. However, there was a small child sleeping in the stroller with no apparent guardian around. Does anyone know the steps Disney takes in order to locate the par  More...

Usually take to baby care center (lost and found) unless something health wise wrong. Parent has to come claim. Probably get a good tongue lashing. Maybe LAPD since that's what happens at closing if unclaimed. - DLKenCA  2630.2 #50 9:50PM
I had a terrible feeling in my stomach thinking about that child. I would not feel comfortable just handing the child back over to the parents without contacting some sort of authority.  - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 10:17PM
Bump: I'm curious if any CM's could enlighten me. - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 9:39AM
I saw a woman once, started to panick of loosing her daughter. CM's on that day were not very comforting to her. My mother in law found her child in about a miniute and a half.  - littleoysterz  242.3 #1452 9:43AM
I've seen panicked parents looking for children within seconds of the little ones running away, vice versa. But this child was left in the stroller. Worried my mom and I. - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 9:50AM

Is the Billy Hill and the Hillbillies show viewable while dining at the bbq place within the Big Thunder Ranch area?

They do have picnic tables by the big stage, though, so you can bring food in from quick service eateries.  - Atora  2702.2 #47 9:53AM

I was finally able to see Saving Mr. Banks with my husband. (Luckily my MIL was able to watch our baby girl.) We both really enjoyed the movie. Is anyone planning on going to the El Capitan soon to watch Mary Poppins?

I'm going to the parks tomorrow with my husband and daughter to celebrate my birthday. I would like to make reservations for lunch or dinner at a restaurant and would like suggestions from all of you wonderful MWers. I've already been to Blue Bayou and was contemplating perhaps Ariel's Grotto or one of the hotel restaurants. Thanks!

Is your daughter older or younge ? I vote storytellers if with younger kids and steakhouse 55 otherwise. Also what do you like to eat? Wine country trattoria is yummy if you like pasta. Ariel's grotto has changed the menu and I haven't been since but I've heard good things. Search it if you'd like as I know a few MWrs have been recently. :) - missariel33  2115.5 #72 5:29PM

Is there outside eating areas for the food places located in Carsland? I've only seen pics of the inside and sign at Flo's, so I wasn't sure.

There is some limited bench seating in the Cozy Cone area and some benches between Sarge's and Flo's, and a large seating area that loops all the way around the back of Flo's. Hope that helps - Firelt  236.3 #1515 12:51PM

Shout out: The lovely IDVandalSkipperCM sent me some goodies for my baby girl. It was so very generous and awesome of her to do. I appreciate this app for letting us mommys chat about our babies. And now I can't wait for our little families to meet, hopefully one day soon!

Question: My husband surprised me with a so cal pass but I have yet to activate it. Can my first use be on a blockout day? I wasn't sure since I would need to go to a main ticket booth to activate it and then have the pass when I enter a turnstile, therefore displaying I am blocked out. Thanks in advance.

I think yes. - Tom  11116.2 #6 8:29PM
I have been told this. Lets say today is a b.o. day for a pass you buy today. You get in anyway. - Tom  11116.2 #6 8:31PM

Finally visited the Reagan Library to view the Disney exhibit. These are some pics I took: Mary Poppins' costume, James Marsden's costume from Enchanted, a chair and ship model from the Pirates movies, and a bear from the Country Bear Jamboree. It was a great exhibit and I wish I had seen it sooner.

What time were you there!?? I was the crazy lady yelling at her three year old the whole day! - Deltachiq  1232.3 #139 7:41PM

Question for parents: I am aware of the baby centers located inside the parks, but was wondering if there is anything similar in Downtown Disney or the resort hotels. Are there family restrooms or a nicer restroom with a changing table and seating (for nursing), etc? If anything, I don't mind sitting in the Grand lobby while using my nursing cover. Thanks!

Bump - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 7:27PM
The only public restrooms I know in DTD are the ones down by Lego. I can't remember if it has a changing table. It does not have seating. - ThatStarWarsKimberly  408.0 #551 7:37PM
There's also a bathroom by Hagan Das. - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #56 7:40PM
Thanks. I know of the one by Haagen Das and I'm assuming it has a changing table but I was unaware of the ones near the Lego store. - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 11:15AM
