Characters at Garden Grove

I haven't been able to find which characters normally frequent the Garden Grove for character meals.

Anyone know?

If you are referring to the Garden Grill in The Land, I think it's typically Mickey, Pluto and Chip and Dale. We have not done this yet, but have it on the itinerary for next trip. If I'm not mistaken Mickey is dressed in his farmer duds.

Oh, my mistake! I did not realize there was such a place! Guess I never really looked at the restaurants at Swan and Dolphin!

Lots of good places to eat at the Swolphin complex, but they are not on the DP. Il Mulino comes highly recommended, and there are themed buffets at the Swan each night. Sadly, we didn't get to try them because my husband was ill while we stayed there, but they have seafood, barbecue and Italian nights. The characters are also available at character breakfasts on the weekends, and we were told they are normally Goofy and Pluto.

Garden Grove at Epcot has Mickey, Pluto, Chip & Dale. We loved it and will definitely be going back not only for the characters, but the experience & food as well.
