Staff is extremely friendly and courteous. Buffet character breakfast is as good for the kids as it is for the adults. Great selection of food. Characters are incredible.

I booked this only since I was visiting with my 5 year old grandson and wanted a character meal and this was highly recommended. I am not into buffets or overpriced meals. This was both-a buffet and the prices were very high! BUT.....worth every penny. My grandson did not stop smiling the entire time we were there. 5 main characters-Mickey,... More

This is a character meal and we were able to meet Mickey, Minnie & Goofy. Great for the kids, they loved this! Customer service with our server was average and slow. Food was honestly terrible. Every item on the buffet was lukewarm. Nothing close to hot. Food choices lacking, and fruit was boring. Cantaloupe and melon. Desserts were missing complete... More

I usually do breakfast, so I can only speak to that. It is an experience. Yes the characters do come table to table to interact, so there is no need to rush around. The food is actually normal for a breakfast buffet, so don't expect extravagant. Overall, a wonderful experience with kids and first timers to the Kingdom :)

I went to "Chef Mickey's" with my family which included 3 small children. This is a buffet-style restaurant and the gimmick is that 5 Disney characters (Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto) drop by at everyone's table to great the diners, sign autographs and pose for photos. Character meals are nothing new a Disney. The surprise was the excellent... More

We have tried Chef Mickeys about 3 times now, each time saying 'we will give it another chance' and it seems to be getting worse rather than better. I am convinced it is because we are usually a party of 2 so get shoved in a little corner, however, the serving staff always seem pushy and distracted (i know it... More

Chef Mickey's offers a great character experience by bringing Pluto, Goofy, Donald, Minnie, and Mickey right to your table. All of the characters gave each of our three kids a quick minute of attention, but long enough for us to snap some great pictures. We were a little disappointed with the dance the characters are supposed to do, no one... More

How did any of you get tickets for breakfast with Chef Mickey? It is hard to believe that within 2 minutes of the tickets going on sale all 10 restaurants are sold out for breakfast.

We overpaid for a character dinner buffet. The food was awful and so random choices. Granted the Disney characters come to your table for a quick photo but there are much better character dinners. Do not waste your time.
