We have previously do e the dinner buffet but came back this time to try the breakfast buffet. As far as Disney buffets go, this is one of the better for breakfast and a good chance for the kids to get to see some of the staple character's without having to wait in line, which is worth the money right there, especially if you have young ones that get timid in the larger park setting.

If you only do one character breakfast, do Chef Mickey. The characters were amazing, the food was very good and the service/waitress were excellent. Would highly recommend, noisy but only because it is so much fun.

Chef Mickeys, your must do stop for any first timer! I was unsure what to expect but we had a great time. My kids just were not digging the characters that morning but nonetheless, they loved watching them as they went around the room. It did seem a little chaotic but rest assured, they get to everyone! Food: WAY better than I was expecting. It was a great buffet with options for many. I thought it was well worth the price tag and definitely got my money's worth....kids too in the amount of Mickey waffles ;) We will be back!

We have a 3 year old and it was his first visit to Disney. We wanted him to meet the characters but lines at the parks are ridiculous in the heat for a 3 year old. We figured we had to have dinner anyway, we might as well do the meet and greet there.

We cancelled our reservation because he fell asleep in the car but he woke up and they honored our reservation with a little bit of wait. The food selection was amazing, very fresh and light options like salads, shrimp salmon, pastas and carving stations; not to mention a decadent selection of desserts.

My son was loved meeting the characters and it was nice to have them come to us while having dinner. It is on the pricey side but totally worth it.
Also, you get a great view of the nightly fireworks after dinner.

Chef Mickey’s is based in the Contemporary Hotel, and is one of the most in-demand breakfasts in Walt Disney World. We came here for breakfast on our last visit and enjoyed the fact that you can meet some of the high profile characters without queuing, and while enjoying some great buffet breakfast. So we came back.

It’s a busy restaurant, with a great atmosphere that’s helped by the fact that Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald are touring the tables, pausing for photos, signatures, and interacting with the guests. The characters are dressed in chef’s whites, so it’s a great photo opportunity. There was a Disney photopass photographer present as you enter the restaurant to take a photo at the entrance, but you will have to take your own photos as the characters come around.

The food is really good quality and there’s a wide range; pancakes and the WDW signature Mickey Waffles, cereal, fruit, pastries, bacon, sausage, egg etc etc. The restaurant is decorated with tons of Disney art, we spent a while wondering around taking in the different pictures after we’d eaten. The monorail passes directly over the restaurant, which is a nice touch. The contemporary is an ‘odd’ hotel, and isn’t to everyone’s liking. I’ve never stayed there, but I would like to, one day. Once you’ve finished your meal, and met all of the characters, you can take the Monorail or a 5/10 minute walk to the Magic Kingdom!
