Chef Mickey's is a great place to go if your kids want to meet some of the core Disney Characters. This is a dining experience that we booked well in advance. The restaurant is inside the Contemporary Resort, so the atmosphere is awesome! Our kids loved looking around at all of the stores prior to our dinner. Before dinner they... More

Mickey is certainly the star and he and all the characters were amazing. We have been to Chef Mickey a few times and each time we were just very disappointed with the food.

When I hear the term character meal this is always the first place that comes to mind. The setting is amazing, as is any visit to the Contemporary Hotel. The food is standard Disney breakfast buffet but it's the classic characters in this classic setting that makes this breakfast worth it all. Our kids loved the interaction they had with... More

Mom and dad didn't think Addi would go near the characters. Boy were they wrong. The characters seem to be able to "read" each child and make the child comfortable. Goofy got down on 1 knee and hugged her. She was thrilled! It is truly a magical place.

1/2 hour waiting after booking with 2 months in advance! The food is awful. Only deserves a visit to see the kids happy with the figures!

We got engaged in Disney and had breakfast the next morning at Chef Mickeys. The buffet was great! I'd definitely go back there again

We celebrated our grandson's birthday here. We have been to several character breakfasts so here is my review. I am usually not a fan of buffets, but this one was great! It had so many choices from sushi to lobster mac & cheese that everyone in our party found something they loved. The character interaction was just a stop by... More

We ate at quite a few character places but chef mickey was the most chaotic. We had a 7.10am reservation and it was relatively quiet when we arrived. The food was all fine and the character interaction was good but by the time we left it was chaos. Not sure we would go again. Great location at the Contemporary though... More
