The Character Dining Experience

Chef Mickey’s is the best character dining restaurant for meeting Mickey Mouse and his pals. The characters featured at Chef Mickey’s are Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto. Mickey Mouse and his friends will come directly to your table for a meet and greet while you enjoy your meal. Be sure to have your autograph books and cameras ready because the characters love to sign autographs and take photos during their visit. Chef Mickey’s character dining experience takes about 90 minutes to complete.


Chef Mickey’s is one of the best character dining restaurants in Walt Disney World and I highly recommend it to all families during their Disney vacation. Everything about Chef Mickey’s is magical! The food, the location, the characters – Chef Mickey’s perfectly captures the magic of a Disney vacation.
