News: Chef Mickey’s Temporarily Relocating to Convention Center

Editor’s Note on 7/19: The temporary relocation to the Convention Center has been cancelled, and guests with Advanced Dining Reservations should receive an email from Disney stating that they can go to Chef Mickey’s regular location for their meal. 

According to, Chef Mickey’s will be relocating to the Contemporary Resort’s Convention Center from July 28th through August 13th for unplanned maintenance. (Sounds ominous!)

So, if you have an Advance Dining Reservation for those dates, you can rest assured that you will still be able to enjoy your Breakfast, Brunch, or Dinner buffet with Chef Mickey himself. And he’ll still be joined by Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto.

Additionally, guests who have already scheduled a reservation should be receiving a communication from Disney regarding the relocation.

In fact, you can still (as of this morning) make Advance Dining Reservations for the experience for the dates mentioned above. Fair warning, though… breakfast with Mickey and the gang still remains a hard ticket to get!
