We had breakfast here on our second day, I had planned for a not too early breakfast as we were planning a day at a water park so a nice easy day. We found this a great way to start the day, breakfast was an all you can eat buffet with the usual eggs, bacon, waffles, fruit and pastries etc.... More

I guest I must be getting old. I didn't get the "WOW" factor but a lot of others sure did. Paying $40.00 per adult, I expected something better than the average food they serviced at this buffet. Don't get me wrong, it was fine but I think Mickey could have improved a little.

Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort is not cheap but we found it well worth it. The food was actually pretty good for "Disney buffet food". It was tough to get a reservation by by being persistent with continuing to chef the My Disney Experience app we were able to snag a 7:30pm reservation which was late considering we have... More

We were staying in the hotel so saw the queues through the the day. Breakfast looks manic unless you are very early. We opted for a lunch spot. It was busy but no queue. We sat right round the corner whoch does feel a little tucked away. The food was buffet and we all loved it. A lot seem to... More

We had a reservation for breakfast and I am a huge breakfast lover. I was not disappointed. It is buffet which does not bother me as I can pick over what I want. There is a large selection to choose from. I went back three times - I'm getting my moneys worth folks. Plenty of characters walking around for the... More

This venue is definitely worth the price you pay. Our server was very friendly and very patient. We had a party of nine and she took care of us without any issues. Plenty of food choices, five Disney characters that come to your table, and spend plenty of time so you can take photos. Make sure you make reservations well... More

Chef Mickey's is always our dinner choice on the first and final evening of our annual Disney vacation. Nice variety of food, clean, fresh and tasty. Fun character interactions, busy and somewhat loud, which is exactly what it should be. A great place to celebrate being back at our favorite place.

Fun time for all in our family party of 9...especially the grandkids. Every character makes the rounds through the dining room, and are very accommodating for photos. Ashley served our table, and did an excellent job. The buffet choices were many, and the food was tasty. (Try the hand-carved smoked ham.) You sure won't leave hungry. Great setting; no lines,...

Was our 1st ever "Character Dining" experience at Disney. We did the Lunch sitting. Decent choice of foods but $38 per adult was a tad steep! Take into account they add their "optional service charge" to the bill as well! Relief for us grown ups that there is a bar on the left just before you enter Chef Mickey's. Mike... More
