    Arriving at Port Orleans the aftn. of 4/30/16 (no parks that day). Any suggestions for a great place to use a dinner credit? Would love Chef Mickey's, but what's the travel time to the Contemporary? Other than Boatwright's, what are other close options?

    Hello Holly and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Personally, I think Chef Mickey's is a GREAT first night idea. In fact, for many years when my children were younger it was our tradition to start our trip eating with Mickey and the Gang. Getting to Chef Mickey's is actually not too difficult. The restaurant is located in Disney's Contemporary Resort which is right next door to the Magic Kingdom. You simply catch a bus to Magic Kingdom and then you can take a leisurely stroll over to Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    Another option would be to catch a boat (there is a dock at Disney's Port Orleans) and head over to Disney Springs. There are MANY dining options there. Our family's favorite quick service location in all of the Walt Disney World Resort is Earl of Sandwich. If you are looking for table service, I would suggest Wolfgang Puck Cafe.  Boy, all this talk of great dining venues is making me hungry!

    See ya real soon!
