DIY Disney Recipe: Breakfast Pizza from Disney World’s Chef Mickey’s Restaurant

Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort in Walt Disney World serves up a breakfast buffet with “character” each morning. Welcome back guest chef Carol E. with a Do It Yourself Recipe for Chef Mickey’s Breakfast Pizza!

One of my favorite Disney pictures ever taken took place at a meal we had at Chef Mickey’s Restaurant inside the Contemporary Resort.

In our pictures, Pluto literally was eating my husband and Dale was fluffing up my hair…the looks on our faces were priceless. (Editor’s Note: Chip ‘n Dale are no longer appearing at Chef Mickey’s.)

This meal was definitely worth the price of admission thanks to all of our wonderful pictures and time that we got to spend with our favorite Disney friends! It’s also one of the rare places that you can actually get your picture taken with Mickey and Minnie together!

Kids love this place, because not only are Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, and Donald Duck there to hang out with you, but the buffet is filled with a ton of kid friendly favorites!

Pluto!

Dale!

Mickey and Minnie!

Breakfast is also a fun time to enjoy this unique restaurant! If you’ve been, you know one of the famous dishes on the buffet during breakfast with Mickey and friends is the classic Chef Mickey’s Breakfast Pizza! The creaminess of the eggs and the blend of cheeses make you feel like you are eating cheese fondue on a pizza. While kids love this dish, it also can be an adult favorite, too.

Well, I’m excited to tell you that Disney [Read more…]

Review: Trail’s End Restaurant at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

It’s been a while since I’ve slept in a camper, cabin, or tent, but that doesn’t stop me from loving Trail’s End Restaurant!

Located at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, the down-home spot is one of my favorites for many reasons — but delicious food and reasonable prices top the list.

While I love lunch and dinner at Trail’s End, I hadn’t visited for breakfast before, so I decided it was time to do just that on a recent trip.

Atmosphere

Getting to Trail’s End is half the adventure. It’s located waaaay at the back of the resort, in the area known as the Settlement.

Now, wait. To be fair, adventure is kind of a generous word. It’s actually kind of a pain to get here. Maybe that’s why I like it so much — it’s rarely too packed!

If you’re coming here via bus from a theme park, or via your own car, you’ll park way up at the front of Fort Wilderness and have to take some internal buses to get back to the Settlement. That’s why I prefer to get to Trail’s End and the other Fort Wilderness restaurants via boat from Magic Kingdom, Wilderness Lodge, or the Contemporary — much less intensive on the travel end, and more enjoyable as well.

On this morning we took the bus, so we had some sight-seeing to do on our way from the bus stop back to Trail’s End… .

Welcome to the Settlement!

It’s not uncommon to see horses at Fort Wilderness, where there are carriage and wagon rides available.

Pioneer Hall shares space with our destination. I love this place! It looks like a giant log cabin. The surrounding by tall pines and live oaks dripping in Spanish moss really give it the feeling of a pioneer settlement.

Pioneer Hall

Pioneer Hall is home to several popular destinations at Fort Wilderness. You’ll find Mickey’s Backyard BBQ close by. But it’s also where you’ll head for an evening of down home fun at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue!

Pioneer Hall -- Up Close

Just past the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue venue, you’ll find our destination for the morning — Trail’s End table-service restaurant. This location shares [Read more…]

Guest Review: Breakfast at Disney’s Pop Century Resort

Let’s welcome back Melissa Sue Sorrells Galley with a review of breakfast at the Everything Pop Food Court in Disney’s Pop Century Resort!

In late February, I traveled down to Walt Disney World to celebrate One More Disney Day; and because it was a last-minute trip, I was traveling on a tight budget and without my husband. So I decided to stay at Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

Pop Century celebrates the 20th century.

I’d visited the resort and shopped in Everything Pop Shopping and Dining on a previous trip, but I’d never ordered food from the Food Court portion of the massive retail location before. I’m excited to share my findings with you.

Atmosphere

My first impression: Everything Pop is loud and overwhelming. There are lots of kids, lots of Disney resort mugs, and lots of folks wandering around without looking where they’re going. It took me a moment to get my bearings.

But after taking a quick walk around the perimeter of the food court, I regained my confidence, and I didn’t run into any problems. In fact, I found myself looking forward to my morning visit to the food court. It has a fun, festive atmosphere. It’s a very Disney way to start the day!

Everything Pop Shopping and Dining is huge.

My only actual complaint about the food court is that it’s really cold in there in late February and early March! Especially if you’re traveling with small kids, I’d bring a sweater.

The food court itself is set up in sort of a half-moon, with six different service stations and a prepared food area. At breakfast, only three of the stations and the grab-and-go area in the back were open. But there were plenty of options, from POP waffles and chocolate croissants to omelets and breakfast platters.

Each food station in the food court serves something different.

Once you’ve loaded up your tray, the checkout counters stand [Read more…]
