It wasn’t long ago that we reported Goofy’s Kitchen, a popular dining location at the Disneyland Hotel, will be reopening in just a few weeks. In fact, the restaurant will welcome Guests back beginning on August 18!

With the reopening, however, comes modifications — including the fact that Goofy and friends will not be getting Guests when the location opens its doors. The good news is that Disney confirmed that Disney characters will return at a later date.

Though many are excited to see Goofy’s Kitchen reopen, many are upset that the characters will not be there. Inside the Magic follower Zachary C. said:

Can it really be called Goofy’s Kitchen if you don’t have Goofy?

Which is something another fan, Hillary P., said as well:

So…. Not Goofy’s kitchen then?

And Brianna W., while she can understand the reasoning, is still upset about the modifications and feels that the cost of the meal should be lower without the characters present:

I mean I get why but have the prices be lowered then because you are paying for an experience with characters. Without them there is not much of an experience

While Matthew M. put it in simple terms:

That’s good news ane bad news.

Lastly, Inside the Magic reader, Michele M. expressed her frustrations:

They really need to get ALL CHARACTER DINING AND EXPERIENCES BACK. The more people ignore all that they’ve taken away the slower it will be for it to come back. Remember the stink put up over noodles? It’s time to let the company know that we want ALL the magic back at WDW/DLR.

It is clear that although many are happy to see another dining location reopen at Disneyland, a majority of fans are still upset that Goofy’s Kitchen will not include characters when it first welcomes back Guests.

Inside the Magic will update you as we get information regarding Goofy’s Kitchen and when characters do, eventually, return to the location.
