We went for breakfast to Chef Mickeys on the dining plan. We loved the array of food that was on the buffet everything from fruit, to pastries, to obvious breakfast items such as bacon and eggs. The characters were fun but Donald never came round even though the others all passed our table twice. But we managed to meet him... More

I would give this an EXCELLENT rating except for the noise level. It is a child-dominated restaurant so volume is on loud. We lucked up and got the most quiet area which helped a lot, but at the buffet line it was still loud. Food was good and my family of seniors and teens ate well. Characters visit a perfect... More

The character interaction at Chef Mickey's was outstanding and was certainly the highlight of this meal....plenty of photo opportunities and the characters took their time with park visitors especially the kids. The food was nothing special just your typical buffet type meal. If you have small kids who are into meeting with characters Chef Mickey's is ok, if you are... More

I read bad reviews about the food at Chef Mickeys but decided to try for the Character experience. I have to say that the breakfast was actually good. Everything tasted very good and well prepared. The character experience added so much joy to our family. Our Son was very excited and happy. The only negative comment I have is that... More

It's expensive but good variety of food. We ate there for breakfast and didn't have to eat again until dinner. Good for getting all of the pictures you want with the big characters. Great location if you are headed to the Magic Kingdom afterwards. Makes much more sense to eat here if you are on a meal plan. Very expensive... More

The kids love to see Mickey and his friends. The food is very good. We went at dinner time (630) the buffet line was very long...they were out of things and very low on things as well. We have eaten here before and was a better experience. At $50 a person it should not of been like that.

We went for dinner once but the kids kept asking to go back every night! Character dining with chance for pictures without standing in line. We were by the window so also had a chance to see Magic Kingdom fireworks since we were dining late. Service, as with most Disney venues, is unparalleled. My daughter wanted salmon plain without sauce... More

Question: What could be better than meeting your favorite Disney characters? Answer: Nothing! Chef Mickey gets you up close and personal with the Disney characters. Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald, Goofy (insert mother-in-law joke here) all will come to your table for some one on one time. Take photos. Give/get hugs. Get autographs. Be part of the floor show. Granted the... More
