The location was awesome. Eating with great views and a Monorail gliding by...how Disney is that!!! The food was really tasty and plentiful. When the characters came out and made their rounds, it brought out the kid in EVERYONE!!! A bit pricey, but these are memories that are priceless! I highly recommend!

The most terrible food I've ever eaten. Not one thing on the buffet was good . Even the salad was gross . Had to fill up on desserts to feel satisfied . Bill was $190 for 3 adults and I child . Ripoff !!

We had such a great time here, characters were lively and engaging, food was absolutely excellent (we had brunch) and service with that Disney smile we have come to expect. It was really easy to find, one stop on the resort monorail from magic kingdom. Brunch choices fantastic, particularly for the kids. One star off because although it's a nice... More

While at the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, I would highly recommend Chef Mickeys in the Contemporary Resort. It is available by both monorail and a 15 minute walk from the Magic Kingdom. My wife and I have had New Year's Day Breakfast there every year since 2001. In both cases, Chef Mickey's is a buffet so eat as much... More

The food is OK but not sure it's worth the $40 per person cost. Standard food (waffles, omelette) but very sparse on fruit and healthy alternatives. Would not have gone but for the desire to recreate my son's childhood thrills of seeing the characters. (Yes, they humored me and played along).

I booked a reservation here mostly for the character interaction for my kids. After looking at some of these reviews, I was a little hesitant after a lot of people saying the food was bad. I am glad I ignored those and kept the reservation. I thought the food was great. Everything was fresh, hot, and tasty. The prime rib... More

Excellent time, grand kids loved it, characters spend 10 or more minutes at your table only, each character rotates, no other interruptions from other people. Great breakfast.

We went here for the character meal dinner, and while my daughter enjoyed meeting the characters, neither of us was impressed with the food selections, in fact, we mostly ate bread and were thankful we were on the free dining plan and not having to pay for this food! I have watched documentaries about how wonderful the food at this... More

All the characters are great with children. You don't feel rushed. Food is pretty good as well. Prefer Tusker House for the character breakfast because it is much cheaper but this is still a great choice rather than waiting in the long lines for the characters

Our Ears of Experience rep booked a reservation here for lunch for our son's birthday. Cast members all acknowledged his birthday. They even got Mickey to come se him because we missed him in our area due to seating delay. The food was decent for a lunch buffet. Cast members were nice. We saw Goofy, Mickey, and Minnie. A negative... More
