I throughly enjoyed my time at Disney's California Hotel & Spa- and this was one of the reasons :). I showed up right when they opened. Their buffet, priced at $36 per person, is typical Disney- overpriced by savory. Service was great. Having some personal...More

Went for dinner. Huge buffet for $35pp which we did not do. We chose the menu options. We shared a kale salad and pizza. The salad was delicious. The corn chowder with bacon is also very good.

While staying at the Grand Californian, we stopped in to the Storyteller's Cafe for lunch. The restaurant was beautiful, filled with words of wisdom etched into the wood around the establishment. It was about halfway full (about 1pm on a Monday). We were warmly welcomed...More

We went in the first week of June and the dinner buffet was $32 for adults. Not a huge selection but everything they had was very good. Enjoy!
