We pre-planned dining at Chef Mickey's months before our trip. Unfortunately, we were only able to secure a reservation for an evening time slot (9:15 p.m.) which we know is late for dinner, but it was the only time available AND was our last night in Disney. We traveled from our resort to the Contemporary. My husband, 5 year old... More

On our recent trip to WDW we had dinner at Chef Mickey's for the second time in as many visits. We visited with another family this time so there were three children (5, 6, and 9) which all love the classic Disney characters. For this reason alone, it is worth the trip to Chef Mickey's. As for the food, we... More

We had breakfast here on our first day in the parks. It was awesome! The food choices where great. I loved how the healthy options where up first in the buffet, so you could fill your plate of fresh fruit and oatmeal before you got to the delicious Mickey waffles. We had a party of 10 with 4 kids and... More

Ate here our last night and the dinner buffet was actually disgusting-- could not even eat! We have had the breakfast buffet there a few years ago, and had no problems. The food was cold. The eggplant parm was the only thing I could actually swallow. Tried the kids chicken fingers and they were hard as a rock. Really horrible... More

I knew going into this from lots of reviews saying this place had gone down hill and not to expect to much. We got there at 720am for our reservation. My wife, Myself, Daughter 4 and son 2. We didn't have to wait more than 2-3 minutes since we had a reservation. For the price there is literally nothing on... More

Chef Mickey's is the best way to see all of the Disney Characters without having to go to the parks. The Characters each came to our table and spent time taking pictures and interacting with the kids. The Characters were Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto. All of the Characters were friendly EXCEPT Mickey Mouse, who was... More

The buffet selection was extensive and the food was mostly fresh. Food quality was a step above other Disney character buffets. The ratio of guest to characters was definitely lower, and they did a good job of accommodating requests for pictures and making the children feel special. Service by the wait staff was also a cut above. Expensive, but worth... More

Yes it's way to expensive for the quality of food and service BUT it's so much fun! The characters come round to every table having pictures with children and adults. My kids thought it was great. The food selection was good, the Mickey waffles were amazing. Lots of bacon, sausage, pancakes, fruit. The cheesy potatoes were very nice. Service was... More

This resort is really showing its age but didn't expect to see so much dust and cobwebs or the condition of the main hall bathroom. With a reservation and told to be on time for it, our wait was over an hour to be called back to wait some more and then take pics that would later be solicited to... More
