Walt Disney World has indicated that Mickey Mouse and friends will return to Chef Mickey’s starting on December 16th at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Disney has also indicated that along with the return of characters, there will be new menu items that will debut. When the breakfast returns it will now be an all-you-care-to-eat family style breakfast instead of the previous buffet offering.
As we have seen at other Walt Disney World character meals, the characters will parade though the restaurant instead of visiting tables as they have previously done.
While Disney has not specifically mentioned it, I would expect that they will be returning the price to what it was previously when it had characters.
Reservations for Chef Mickey’s character breakfast will become available on October 17th.
It’s been years since we’ve been to Chef Mickey’s. We considered the character interaction subpar and the buffet food barely average….and it’s the noisiest meal I’ve ever experience…ever. We ate at Garden Grill and Topolino’s last month when we were visiting Walt Disney World and I actually think the way they’re doing the characters is an improvement. With this and the menu changes…if they stay….might actually get us to return.
The other thing that’s important to note….
This significantly increases the number of character breakfasts and character meals available to guests on property. So, if you are looking for a character meal, this is really good news.
