Description: Chef Mickey's is a buffet restaurant serving breakfast and dinner flavors—and your favorite Disney Characters!—at Disney's Contemporary Resort.The whole brood will chow down in smiles while the likes of Mickey or any assortment of his pals roams the restaurant. You never know who might show up! Delicious seasonal specialties make for a spectacular spread in this bright, happy space located beneath the quiet whisks of the monorail. Breakfast includes a premium fruit bar, cereal selections, American classics like pancakes (with fun toppings!), Mickey Mouse waffles, eggs, omelettes and pastries. Dinner is a delectable affair with roasted chicken, carved beef, savory sides and kids' favorites (like mac 'n' cheese). Make your meal end sweetly ever after at the sundae bar.

The Characters were there and great but the rest of the experience was not so good. The food was not up to the standard I expected in a high class hotel. It was cold, not inspiring, very basic and a great disappointment. We had a dinner booked there but after the breakfast experience, we cancelled the booking and did not return to this restaurant.
When you pay such a high price for a breakfast (plus a compulsory 18% gratuity charge for a buffet meal - there were 4 adults, one 3 year old and one 1 year old) you expect very good food and choice - not the case here.

Lots of food options, but the kids each only liked a few things. The pictures turned out cute, but added to the price big time! We had reservations, but still waited about 40 minutes to be seated. The characters took their time at each table. Overall, one of our favorite Disney experiences! We ate and made it to the balcony at the Contemporary just in time to see the fireworks.

After viewing the Chef Mickey's brunch while we passed through the contemporary on the monorail during our previous visit the family decided this would be our big event for the 2013 trip. The service, food, atmosphere and characters did not disappoint. We had a wonderful time and I was able to text my brother some real time pictures to make him jealous as it is his favorite restaurant in Disney.

We enjoyed our recent breakfast at Chef Mickey's. It cost around $140 for 2 adults, 3 kids & a toddler for the breakfast buffet. Our server was friendly and attentive. The buffet offered a wide variety. We particularly enjoyed the Mickey waffles with cherry sauce.

The best part was definitely the character experience. We had an early reservation so it wasn't very crowded when the characters visited our table. They spent adequate time greeting the kids, signing autographs and taking photos. Goofy was our clear favorite. He was very enthusiastic and playful. He gave the kids several big hugs and didn't rush them at all.

Certainly the most expensive breakfast I've paid for but it was a great experience making those memories.
