    We are coming to Disney World in January 2019. I have read Mickey’s Backyard BBQ is “seasonal” and only offered on certain nights. I am unable to find if it is offered during our time there and if so which nights.

    Hi Lauren,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question. Mickey and his pals really lead a dream life, don’t they? From waving atop fantastical parade floats to attending magical holiday parties to dancing with Guests at a backyard barbeque, they are truly living their best lives – and wearing the cutest themed outfits for every occasion while they’re at it!

    Lauren, I checked with a Walt Disney World Dining Cast Member about your question, because I don’t see any dates on the Mickey’s Backyard BBQ reservation calendar right now. She did some investigating and confirmed that, as of right now, there are no January 2019 dates loaded into the system for this Character Dining experience. She could not get an answer as to whether it is in fact a seasonal offering, and her advice was to continue checking the calendar to see if dates appear. You are also welcome to call (407) WDW-DINE to see if anything has become available.

    In the event that Mickey’s Backyard BBQ is not available during your January visit, I have a few suggestions. Garden Grill Restaurant offers characters dressed in their farm attire, and features a delicious feast that incorporates ingredients grown right in The Land Pavilion at Epcot. The restaurant even rotates through the Living With the Land attraction. We loved it! If you’re looking for an iconic meal with The Fab Five, I suggest looking into the classic Chef Mickey’s. For a similarly-themed dinner show, check out the hilarious Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that some pixie dust falls on the calendar and you’re able to snag that reservation, Lauren!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
