We dined here for brunch on 9/30. Our ADR was for 11am, but we arrived around 10:30 and they took us right away. This was our favorite meal of our trip!
Goofy was participating in the little parade around the restaurant when we checked in, so we did need to wait a short while to get our photo taken with him. The folder with our photos (included with Photopass+) is very nice and sturdy, and included several pages with recipes from the buffet and "anecdotes" about Goofy and his family.
The buffet was decked out with Halloween decorations, which was a nice touch. This included various pumpkins, spider webbing, as well as decals on the glass above the dishes and on the walls. The buffet had an extensive amount of food offerings!
There were the usual pastries and muffins, assortment of fruits, yogurts, and cottage cheese, Mickey waffles, pancakes, french toast, oatmeal, bacon, sausage, and eggs for breakfast.
For a lunch selection, they had green salad and toppings, bagels with lunch meats, mashed potatoes, chicken pot pie, seasonal veggies, pasta of the day, and roasted ham. The children's section had various pizzas (the famous PB&J, mac 'n' cheese pizza, roasted veggie, pepperoni, and plain cheese), hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, and chicken nuggets.
There was also a wide variety of desserts. These included bread pudding, bananas foster crepes, blueberry cobbler, chocolate dipped rice crispies, tarts, jello cups, pineapple coconut cupcakes, chocolate chip and snickerdoodle cookies, as well as a soft serve ice cream station with an assortment of toppings.
We were able to meet "Servers" Chip & Dale, "Pastry Chef" Minnie, and "Sous Chef" Pluto. They wore costumes unique to this location, which was nice surprise, as I was kind of expecting the same outfits as they have at WDW's Chef Mickey's. Pluto snuck up to our table and sniffed our food, and I caught Minnie checking out "her" desserts on the buffet to make sure everything was plentiful.
Everything we had here was amazing. The PB&J pizza is famous for a reason-wow! My mom overdid it a little on the soft serve ice cream with Ghirardelli caramel sauce! We definitely got our money's worth here, and didn't feel rushed in any way. Can't recommend this place enough!
Pros:Good character interaction, amazing buffet, Halloween decorations

I grew up going to Goofy's Kitchen as a child (at the old location, I'm old haha), so I wanted to bring my children here to experience what I did when I was little! Unfortunately, it was very mediocre. The characters were great, but the food was very just okay to us. Also, very chaotic atmosphere. And it was so expensive! I will say the picture at the front of the restaurant was a cool souvenir, Goofy looks awesome in his chef's costume. But if I'm going to do a character brunch, I much prefer the Minnie and Friends at the Plaza. Much cheaper too.
