I just love to eat at Chef Mickey’s located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It is my favorite character meal, and I am looking forward to taking my grandchildren there on our upcoming trip. I love the upbeat atmosphere. It always feels like you going to a party. When you first arrive at your scheduled time you receive a pager that will go off when it is time for you to be escorted to a family picture area. The cast members will also take a picture for you with your own camera. During your meal you will be sent a photo package that you can purchase for an charge.
The meal at Chef Mickey’s is an all you can eat buffet. It takes about an hour for the characters to make their circle around the restaurant. This characters included are Pluto, Goofy, Donald, Minnie and Mickey. Each of the characters stop at your table for pictures and autographs! This is a great way for your children to meet these characters without waiting in the line at one of the parks.
The buffet has fruit, eggs, Mickey waffles, sausage, bacon, potatoes, pancakes, and many other breakfast items. The breakfast food is very good – I have never been there for dinner, but would assume the dinner buffet which includes carved meats, vegetables, pasta, salad, pizza and dessert items, are very good as well!
A celebration party parade happens about every forty-five minutes. Don’t forget to swirl your napkin over your head! Show your Disney Side! If you are having a hard time choosing a character meal this one is fantastic! As an added bonus the kids (and adults) can enjoy watching the monorail go in and out of the station overhead.
Do not forget to make your reservations early as this is a very popular restaurant and you will most likely be disappointed if you walk up without one. The cost is $36.99 for adults and $21.99 for children. The price includes tax but does not include gratuity.
