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.

We attended Chef Mickey's with our 2 young children for dinner in September of 2010. We had heard mixed reviews, and most held true. The food was not child friendly, although they did have french fries and mickey shaped ravioli's. The selection was very small, only 10 items or so on the buffet. This is much smaller than most of the buffets at Disney World. Your picture is taken with Mickey before you are seated, then the other members of the "fab 5" rotate through the restaurant while you dine. Overall I would suggest skipping this meal, as it was the worst we had on the trip.

We took our little girl to Chef Mickey's for breakfast one morning. The food was average and the atmosphere was okay. I will say they do a very good job of making sure everyone gets plenty of time with all of the characters, we didn't feel rushed at all. We where on the disney dining plan so I don't even remember how much it was, so I can't comment on the value, really. If you want some good one on one time with the fab five, okay food and an upbeat atmosphere then go here.

When we arrived to the restaurant we got there 15 minutes before our reservation as Disney had asked..50 minutes later (40 minutes after our reservation time) we were seated. They do not take you right to your seat but to stand in yet another line to get a picture with Mickey. There is no photopass here and if you would like your picture with Mickey they come around and give you the option to purchase it as well as an entire package, so bring your own camera if you want to keep a memory of this event. The buffet was not as nice as the others we experienced at the Crystal Palace. The characters do come around to each table and spend about 30-60 secondds at each table, but you can catch these same characters elsewhere at Epcot character spot. We did have a great waiter, but we were not impressed.

Book a reservation as early as Disney will allow! This restaurant has a great family friendly atmosphere. Food was typical buffet style food. I have a gluten allergy and the chef came out personally and informed me of what I could eat on the buffet! Have your cameras ready before the characters come around, they do not stick around for long! All the kids in our party were thrilled, and the adults had a fun time too. I was a little disappointed that we were there for a decent amount of time(party of 13) and only heard the song where you twirl your napkins once, and it was right when the characters were at our table so we didn't get to participate.
