    Going to Chef's Mickey's for breakfast on October 2, 2011. We are staying outside of Disney, what is the best way to get to the Contemporary Resort and do we have to pay to park there? It doesn't count again our park tickets does it?

    Hi Erin,

    You're going to love dining with Mickey and his pals at Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort!  There's nothing like enjoying a delicious buffet while schmoozing with the "big cheese" and watching the monorails glide effortlessly overhead.  Be sure to take your camera that morning!

    If you have advance dining reservations at Chef Mickey's, just drive right up to the Contemporary.  The friendly cast member at the parking gate will happily permit you and your party to park at the resort while you dine.  There is no charge to park here.  The temporary parking permit (usually good for three hours) will allow you enough time to enjoy a leisurely meal on the fourth floor of the resort.  No theme park admission is required to enter Disney's Contemporary Resort so you will not need to present theme park tickets for this meal.

    Wishing you a magical October vacation in Walt Disney World!
