News: Chef Mickey’s Relocating to Contemporary Resort Convention Center in Late November through December

Earlier this summer, it was anticipated that Chef Mickey’s would be relocating to the Contemporary Resort’s Convention Center from late July to mid-August for maintenance of the popular Character Meal location. However, that maintenance was cancelled… for a time.

Guests who already have Advance Dining Reservations for affected dates should be receiving an email directly from Disney regarding the relocation.

If you don’t have a reservation for Chef Mickey’s but are still interested in lining up a buffet Breakfast, Brunch, or Dinner with Chef Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto, the usual means of reserving still apply.

    Disappointed that Chef Mickey’s will be relocated during our visit – I had looked forward to enjoying the ambiance of the Contemporary. Do you know about the decor of the convention center or sites to be seen from there ?

  2. Barry Ripley says

    We have a reservation for our traditional departure breakfast on 19 December. Have to wait and see if we’re affected.

  3. Jennifer says

    We have a reservation in December. We haven’t received an email yet. Any idea on what the convention center experience will be like? Almost tempted to cancel and look for something else.

  4. Jaci says

    I am also looking to hear if anyone has dined at Chef Mckey’s when it was in the convention center in the past?

  5. Valerie says

    I am going December 7th- I received the email about the change. I am debating on keeping the reservation
    Or cancelling it. I love the environment of chef Mickey and wondering how this will change.

    We have reservations for the Dec 7 th but haven’t heard anything yet. Disney is magic. It has to be good as well as decorative.

  7. Alison says

    Have a reservation on 12/7…no email yet. Where is this located compared to the normal location?

  8. DFB Sarah says

    Alison, Chef Mickey’s is located at one end of the fourth floor of the Contemporary Tower. The convention center at the Contemporary is accessed from the same end of the Tower — but on the second floor. Hope this helps!
