Whilst chef Micky was a great experience I don't think we'd do it again now we've done it. The food was all lovely but I did feel that it lacked choice and variety. Although it was delicious. The cast members were all great and the character interaction was worth every penny. We have memories here that will last a lifetime.

Although being in Disney is never bad, Chef Mickey's is not as it once was. Don't get me wrong, it is by no means bad. It just needs to add some variety to the food on the buffet. The service was fine but not attentive. I understand there is a service charge and that it is necessary but I think... More

We came for dinner. It is your typical Walt Disney World Buffet. The food was Ok, I ate mostly sushi and the kids food. Here the characters seemed very rushed, compared to other character meals we have had. The server was never around when the characters were so we could not get the whole family with any of the characters.... More

The finest food, the finest servers and the most helpful staff in town. Disney's magic always works and Chef Mickey's is no different. I haven't stepped inside the Contemporary hotel in almost 30 years and despite the changes it brought back great memories. This place is almost always booked so book early. The food is magnificent. Anytime you can get... More

If you are interested in the meal plan you definitely want to stop here.... the Buffett is ok (nice variety especially dessert) but the absolute high light is the fact that you are promised to meet 5 characters and take pictures.... if you are paying out of pocket it is about 50$ a person. Make sure you stay and watch... More

This breakfast includes just about any favorite you can imagine! The service is wonderful and the characters are the big 5 of the Disney stars: Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto. The photo opportunities are endless, including a pose with Chef Mickey at the entrance.

Before eating here, ask yourself how valuable it is see five Disney characters without waiting in line, oh wait, I guess you still have to wait in line. We booked reservations at Chef Mickey and arrived right at our reserved time. We waited in a line of about 20 people to "check-in", then were given a pager for when our... More

This was the only place I wanted to take my parents because breakfast is their favorite meal and I heard nothing but good things but its not like that at all. The service is ok, the characters dont really care, thank goodness for the chocolate chip pancakes.
