Perfect dinner location

Five characters circulated the restaurant every hour, so Every kid gets photos and autographs with them. Characters were great with kids, and adults too. Food was very good, plenty of selection. Could have used more seafood. Price of 46 per adult, felt okay about that when we left. Great... read more

This was our 5th Disney trip but first time eating at chef mickeys. I have to say this was the best breakfast we had on this trip. Monorail from magic kingdom was nice and we times it perfectly. Highly recommended.

We have been here a few times but it's been a while. I had breakfast here with my husband, parents and 16 month old daughter. She loved meeting all the characters and it's so nice to be able to get time with each one while you enjoy your meal. They do a great job making sure you get to see... More

I can't believe anyone is complaining about this place???? If you are in a hurry, you better not make any reservation to any of the character breakfast, because this take time. If you want to enjoy your time in Disney, plan it and organize it in a way that you will be able to do all you want. When taking... More

For the most part, all of the restaurants at Disney are about the same. Just ok. The queues are long, and dishes over-priced. It is however Disney and not Paris, so it's not really a deal breaker; after all we're here to see Mickey!

Great character dinner! Great staff and the food was fantastic. Disney Characters came around to every table and took all the time you wanted to take photos and interact with the children (of all ages). Wonderful experience!

We felt rushed through the character greetings as the restaurant was full and very busy. Food was quite salty and basically over priced. We enjoyed Cinderella's Royal Table for the ambiance and experience way more than this one. The cafeteria style restaurant wasn't quite up to the price.

Let me start out by saying I'm in the Top 5% of Disney World fans out there. We've been to Disney three years in a row and will probably make next year our fourth. My brother went to Chef Mickey's with his family prior to our visit and raved about it. The price for breakfast was ASTOUNDINGLY high. Absurd actually.... More

Have dined in all the themed restaurants throughout all the parks and In my humble opinion, chef mickeys is by far the best. The service and food is excellent with a good choice of buffet to keep anyone happy. If you ask my 2 daughters where is the best restaurant where they have had the most fun with the characters...
