    Bringing 7,5 2 year old plus 6 month old grand kids 1st week of December. What are your thoughts on Mickey's Backyard BBQ. I know it is outside. They LOVE Chip & Dale.

    Hello, Pat!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your grand-Mouseketeers are sure to have a fantastic time at Mickey's Backyard BBQ!

    Our family had a hootin' tootin' time dancing with Chip'n Dale, along with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Goofy while a live band played country-western tunes. The all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet is very kid friendly. You will find hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob and mac and cheese, as well as adult favorites such as BBQ ribs, smoked chicken and complimentary wine and beer for Guests over 21 years of age. 

    On the most recent night our family attended this event, it was pouring the rain, and we almost decided not to go. Hungry and not wanting to turn back, we trudged on in the downpour. We were so glad did! The covered outside area has picnic style tables that surround the dance floor and face the stage so we were sheltered from the rain. My Mouseketeer loved dancing with Mickey Mouse, but his favorite moment was when Dale took him by the hand to help him line dance! Even though our clothes and shoes were soaked, we danced and danced! In fact, this was the one experience from the vacation that our Mouseketeer remembers the most! 

    Keep in mind that Mickey's Backyard BBQ is held on select nights that can vary by season and payment is required at the time of booking. To book this or another character dining experience, call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 or book online up to 180 days in advance. 

    I hope this helps with your decision and you get the chance to attend this fun music-filled hoedown. Please visit us again if you have any additional questions! 

    Happy Planning!
