Our Favorite Disney Restaurants: Chef Mickey’s!

I’d heard a lot of great things about Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort, but thought that our tween-agers were too old to appreciate character dining with Mickey and the gang. Plus, table-service restaurants tend to be a bit cost-prohibitive for our family of five. However… when we got the opportunity to have a few sit-down meals via the free dining plan special offer, we went ahead and made reservations for Chef Mickey’s – and, boy, were we glad we did!

We booked the last possible brunch seating, which in our case was at 11:10 AM. I’d read that this was a good idea as you get to spend more time with the characters since the brunch rush is winding down. This was true – we got character pics galore! Not to mention, the buffet-style brunch was delicious, with nearly every breakfast option you can imagine.

These days, when I ask my boys what they’d like to do most if we’re ever lucky enough to go back to Disney World, the response is “eat at Chef Mickeys!” I guess you’re never too old for Mickey Mouse!

Hanging out with Chef Mickey!

  1. We’ve been brave and booked a breakfast ADR for the two of us at Chef Mickey’s for October, our first visit there. I’ve always avoided in the past due to it just being the two of us adults….I’m interested to see what response we get from what I’m lead to believe is a very lively, family friendly restaurant 🙂
