After a day in the park this was a great choice. We arrived about 15 minutes early and actually got seated right away. We informed the chef that my mom and I both have Celiac and the chef came out to greet us. Instead of just telling us what we could have off the buffet, he actually walked us through it. Answering any questions we had and offering alternatives that he could make for us. Very helpful, and excellent food. The kids loved seeing the characters and we were happy that they took their time at each table. Great food and great experience.

Food = Above average (for a buffet)
Service = Average
Price = Are you kidding me?
There is such flimflam about Chef Mickey that no matter how hard they try, you are sure to have some disappointments. But they really don’t even try. The characters come out, half-heartedly and shake hands and sign autographs. The dinner cost $44 a head. Certainly not worth it. If you want characters to come by and mingle, try Nick Jr.’s resort Character Breakfast (but don’t stay there… that’s another story). Also, there is the matter of getting there. Three separate GPS systems got us lost, and the security guard at the Contemporary Resort (Chef Mickey), was absolutely no help. My verdict, skip it.

This is a great way to see characters and have an excellent meal. This is located in the Contemporary Resort and it's a wonderful way to enjoy a great meal and tour the resort!

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.
