I have been here many times because of the characters and my kids wanting to see Mickey. It is a buffet and the characters do not give you much time. The staff is constantly running because of the turn of business but they are losing the disney magic on this one. I now go to other character dining that I... More

This is a great option for families with small children who benefit from a buffet dinner (no waiting for food) and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse characters milling around offering periodic interaction to increase dinner time for the parents. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, and usually noisy so that occasional "outdoor voices" are fine. The food is pretty good- salad bar,... More

This was our second visit to Chef Mickeys - first time was great last year - this one not so much. I don't know if it was over booked or what but we had a 9:25 reservation and had to wait a good 20 minutes. Which is fine - its Disney- you wait for everything. My issue really was the... More

While it was a bit "loud and bright" first thing in the morning, I loved this character meal the best! It was worth the $$ to not have to wait in line to meet the essential Disney Characters (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Pluto) and they had a huge selection of food. No one left there hungry. We didn't feel rushed... More

Always a fun time with the characters. The food is fine, nothing fancy but you won't starve, besides it's all about the kids anyway

This is a buffet and we had the dinner. A lot of great choices and wonderful tasting food. This is also a character dinner. So not only is the food great but you have 5 Disney characters visit your table during the course of your dinner.

We started our first official day of our vacation with the character breakfast at Chef Mickey's. I was unsure of what to expect as this was also our first character experience. The welcoming into the "restaurant" was really nice and they took a family picture before walking in to the meal. The food was typical breakfast buffet with Mickey Mouse... More

My grandkids loved Mickey and Minnie and the rest of them. Sorry i'm old and my brain doesn't remember all their names! They interacted good, came by one at a time. Buffet was ok. Not the best, but had worse. I'm assuming I'm paying for the Disney Characters. Which I agree to be satisfying

This is a must-do! Loved having the characters coming to your table. Food was great. Getting a reservation is always hard. Suggest getting one 1-2 months in advance.
