    What is best way to book a restaurant reservation at Chef Mickey’s in the Contemporary Resort if you are staying at Bay Lake Towers?

    Hey there, hi there Gary! Thanks for stopping by planDisney where you're always welcome as can be. I'd be happy to assist a fellow Mouseketeer today. 

    Hot dog! It sounds like you've got a fantastic winter getaway planned. Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is one of my favorite places to stay in Walt Disney World. It's incredible to be within walking distance of Magic Kingdom Park. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of Disney Enchantment from your balcony or the fourth-floor deck of Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    For the best chance at securing a reservation for the family-style feast at Chef Mickey's, you'll want to use the Walt Disney World website or My Disney Experience Mobile App. As a Guest of a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection, dining reservations will be available to you for the duration of your stay beginning at 7 AM EST starting 60 days before your check-in date. I've been able to begin as early as 6 AM, so if you're an early riser like me, you might find things occasionally open up a little sooner than the officially scheduled time.

    To make reservations on the Walt Disney World website, start on the Chef Mickey's page and click on "Check Availability." Choose the date and approximate time you'd like to dine, then follow the prompts to finalize the reservation. If you prefer to use the My Disney Experience Mobile App, use the magnifying glass icon at the bottom of the screen and type Chef Mickey's into the search bar to bring up the restaurant's information page. Swipe left until you see the option to "Reserve Dining," and click here to continue the process. If you don't find what you're looking for at the 60-day mark, keep checking right up until the day you would like to dine. More reservations sometimes open up as Guests' plans and restaurant availability evolve. 

    I hope this is helpful, Gary, and that you are successful in your quest to have a meal with Mickey Mouse and his pals this February. If dining with the main mouse himself is a priority, my family also enjoys the Garden Grill Restaurant in EPCOT and Tusker House Restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Best wishes for a fantastic vacation, and we'll see ya real soon!

    Bon appétit,
