Chef Mickey’s

Chef Mickey

Chef Mickey’s is one of the most difficult reservations to get on property, and the reason is that at this buffet restaurant, you can meet every single one of the fab five character set: Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto.

Serving breakfast and dinner (sometimes lunch during busy seasons), this long-standing character restaurant location is a favorite for kids and adults alike. The food is good (and getting better), the close-to-the-Magic-Kingdom location is good for a quick respite from the parks, and the celebration songs and parades are fun for everyone. Don’t forget to sample the sundae bar if you’re there for lunch or dinner!
