Good for original character meetings

This was our 2nd time having breakfast here. Donald, Goofy, Mickey, Minnie and Pluto come to your table one at a time. The buffet was ok. Not horrible. The kids love the experience. Very pricey! But priceless when you see the look in your kid's faces!!!

This was our third time here and the good is always good, fresh and Disney clean. The characters stop at all of the tables for photos. Service is always good and meets the Disney standard. Expect expensive. For two adults and two children, it was $128. I like how they recommend a 18% or 20% tip on top of that... More

This is a buffet restaurant where Mickey Mouse and other characters walk around to each table and take pictures or sign autographs for the kids. I've had the dinner buffet more so I'll talk about that. The variety is somewhat limited. They have some different salads, soups and fresh fruit. They offer fresh carved to order meats like turkey or... More

Like others have said, the food isn't 5- star, gourmet fare, but you aren't going to a buffet for that anyways! The reason that you go there to eat is for the experience. The kids loved meeting Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, and the Donald (duck, not Trump). We'd been here two times before for breakfast, but this time we tried... More

This is so overpriced - my husband choked on the bill! Guess I forgot to warn him! That aside, we thought the breakfast was very good. So much variety, plenty for kids tastes and adults too. From healthy to brownies for breakfast. The buffet was well stocked and everything was warm. They even made my daughter some gluten free pancakes.... More

Chef Mickie's used to be a staple for my vacations. However reservations are impossible to get, the food is reheated Stouffer's, and the prices are outrageous. There are literally hundreds of better places to eat in Orlando.

I have heard a lot of people raving about how wonderful Chef Mickey's is so I was very excited to get a dining reservation for our recent trip. We were first timers for this dining experience and were disappointed with it. We did not feel like this experience compared to many of the other character dining experiences and for future... More

We have eaten here a number of times. Since this is a character dining restaurant you get to see Pluto, Minnie, Mickey and Goofy. They will stop by for pictures and sign autographs. Don't worry if you miss them they will be back. Another nice thing is this is a buffet which in my mind is the best bang for... More

When we went in 1997 this place was amazing, and for some reason ever time we have went back we go back to this place. ( memories) But I think this time was the final straw that we will need to find a new dinner hot spot for kids unless they revamp this. When we first went it was a... More

Our group included 2 grandparents, 2 parents, a 15 year old girl, and an 11 year old boy. This was a top-notch character dinner. I think the adults were as excited to see Mickey, Minnie, and the gang as the kids were! Each one came by our table, signed autograph books, posed for pictures, and didn't seem rushed at all!...
