Chef Mickey's

Character meals are one of the most enjoyable ways to eat at Walt Disney World. There are numerous options to choose from, you can eat with princesses, you can eat with Pooh Bear and friends, you can eat at the Royal table in Cinderella's Castle, but I think my favorite is Chef Mickey's. Now granted, I have not done all of them, and they change up. Currently, I can't find any available at Hollywood Studios, when Amelia was a baby, we had an awesome breakfast there (it was MGM). Characters will change up, like at Grand Floridian, 1900 Park Fare, the characters are switched up between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Anyway, Chef Mickey's is almost guaranteed Minnnie and Goofy will be pal-ing around with Mickey. There is usually another friend. We usually do breakfast, it is buffet style, all you can eat, and the food is always amazing. Something for everyone. The Characters come to your table and you get to have pictures with them, get autographs if you want. Here at this restaurant, they do a song, and you twirl your napkins in the air. Some places make the kids go around in a parade!

Here are pictures from our breakfast with Mickey and pals!

Chef Mickey's is located in the Contemporary resort.

Donna and Conrad really like Goofy!

So when going to WDW, plan out ahead of time which character meal you want to do. If you go to the main Disney web site you can see all the character dining they have.
Click here and take a look. You can make Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) 120 days before your trip. I highly suggest that you do so. During peak times it is very difficult to get into some of the places.

So, if you have done a character meal, what is your favorite? What ones have you tried? Share with us and tell us!

I have only been to one character meal. It was breakfast with Pooh and Friends, (Pooh, Pigglet, Tigger and Eeyore), and was in Olivia's Cafe inside Old Key West Resort. My daughter was about 6 and she loved it. I danced with Tigger, it was such a hoot!
My sister and her family have done the Princess one and enjoyed it very much. My sister said that she was surprised at how much time the characters spend with the kids. And, that each Princess vistited every table.
Character meals are Awesome!!
