Important Info:

  • Comtempo Cafe is a good alternative to eating counter service in the Magic Kingdom, especially if you want a break from the crowds on a busy attendance day. A short ride on the resort monorail will bring you directly to the Contemporary Resort where the Cafe is located.
  • Be sure to check out the cupcakes; available in caramel dos leches, Black Forest, or pina colada. They are over-sized, delicious, and arguably the best on Walt Disney World property!
  • There is no significant dividing wall between the Cafe’s seating area and the bustling Chef Mickey’s restaurant. If you are dining during peak meal hours be aware that it may get a bit noisy.

Famous Dishes: giant cupcakes, honey lime chicken sandwich, marinated beef flatbread (dinner only)
