    Coming 1/28-2/3 2017. This will be 4th trip so looking at different dining options. Will Mickey's Backyard BBQ be open this time of year? I have heard they only do 10 months a year.

    Hi, Corie!

    I'm sorry to tell you that Mickey's Backyard BBQ is only held March through December. Since this is an outdoor event, I guess the weather is just too unpredictable during the mid-winter months.

    Some other fun options for you...

    -To still get to have some fun with Mickey, consider a character buffet at Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary
    -If you want to stick with something at Fort Wilderness, you might enjoy the dinner show Hoop Dee Doo Revue at Pioneer Hall
    -Whispering Canyon Café at Wilderness Lodge not only has amazing food, it is a lot of fun for the whole family with guest participation and super fun Cast Members serving up laughs throughout your dining experience.

    With so many great dining options at Walt Disney World, you are sure to find something fun for your family.
