As other reviewers have mentioned, this is absolutely the best character breakfast/meet and greet around however you will pay handsomely for it and you better make a reservation because you will never get into the place. The place is smack in the middle of the 1st level 1970's style Contemporary Resort, you know the one the Monorail passes through. You... More

I have been to this Disney restaurant 4 other times, for breakfast or dinner only. This was the first time eating here during the afternoon. I will not eat here again in the afternoon. The server was fine, drinks were fine, environment was good. My kids enjoyed it. When my wife made the reservations, I did not know they were... More

The perfect picture of a Disney restaurant has a monorail overhead, Mickey & his friends saying “HI!” and great food. Well, you have found all of that when you dine at Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary! When you arrive at the Contemporary you can feel the excitement and electricity in the air. You take the escalator to the second floor... More

With most of the character meals, you aren't going bc of the food so I went in not expecting much from any of them, but Chef Mickey surprised me. They had a variety of breakfast items so there was something for everyone. It is pricy - we were on the meal plan so the price didn't bother us as much.... More

This is a great place to visit for a character meal! Your kids will love it! It is a sure way for your family to see all the different characters - Mickey, Pluto, Donald, Minnie, Goofy. The dinner is a buffet and pretty good. We loved our experience here and would recommend it if you are visiting Disney! Each character... More

I have heard many people RAVE about this Chef Mickey meal / event. I was very disappointed with the whole thing! There are 5 characters... The Fab 5... Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto. The characters did come to every table. We were under the impression the professional photographers would be there allowing you the opportunity to purchased the... More

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

We dined at Chef Mickey's last week with my 2 children. We did not wait very long after we checked in to get seated. The characters( Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto) all come up to your table to say hello and take photos. The BEST part of our experience was meeting Chef Nanor. She went ABOVE and BEYOND to... 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
