We had made reservations for Chef Mickey because my daughter really wanted to see Mickey and the Gang. We were not disappointed. Mickey, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie and Donald all came by the table to take photos and sign her book. She loved every moment of it. The buffet was good with choices such as mickey waffles, bacon, sausage, fruit, and other breakfast buffet staples. The atmosphere was ok for a restaurant filled with kids longing to see Mickey. It wasn't too loud, I could have a conversation with my daughter. Our server was very friendly and tried to make sure we were satisfied. All in all a must for anyone who wants to see Mickey without standing in line.

Buffet was pretty good but lets be honest, no one goes to this for the food. It is all about the Disney characters. There are 5 a day. The kids and let face it those of us that are young at heart loved it too. Lots of photo moments.

Chef Mickey's is great and bad. Do you value characters above all? Then this is a great restaurant, with all the major Disney characters visiting, being lots of fun and very interactive. The service? great, our server was talkative and energetic, he looked a bit tired, but you could tell he was trying, and that's more then i can say for most buffets. It goes downhill from here.. If you value the normal traits of a restaurant more then Disney Characters then Chef mickey is not good at all. The atmosphere is decent, everything well decorated but what is bothersome is that for being elevated this high you would think you could get a better view, but there is hardly a view with few windows. The restaurant feels like it was, and looks like it was, built on a spare section of the lobby floor. The food was okay, buffet items ranged from "meh" to "okay" the only exception was the pre-cracked crab claws. The biggest issue with the Normal restaurant side of things; your paying $45+ for food in the "meh" to "okay" range. Well as long as your pleasantly distracted by characters and a good server then Chef Mickey's was an enjoyable experience. But would I come back? No
