    My daughter is getting married at Shades of Green and we are having Disney characters appear at the reception. We want to have the rehearsal dinner at Chef Mickey’s. Do they take reservations? When can we book the reservation? Is there a maximum booking?

    Welcome to planDisney, Daphne! Huge congratulations to your daughter on her upcoming nuptials - where better to celebrate than the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Advanced dining reservations open up 60 days before arrival at Walt Disney World, which includes Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort. It sounds like you may have a larger party, so you may find it easier to speak with one of the Disney Experts to help make dining reservations. They will be able to advise the best way to make sure all your party can enjoy the dining adventure. 

    In my experience, booking through the My Disney Experience App works better for smaller parties. To successfully book dining online, you could make multiple bookings for smaller groups within your party at close intervals. A table for 20 is not always readily available, so smaller groups sitting close together may be a good option. You can speak with a Cast Member when checking in for your dining reservations to request tables together, and they will accommodate your party's needs if possible. 

    Chef Mickey's is such an iconic spot to host a rehearsal dinner, all while the monorail swoops into view in the background. I wish you all a fabulous time celebrating this monumental life event! 

    My planDisney pal, Prince, married his happily ever after at Walt Disney World and is wise to all things Disney matrimonial. They are one of the loveliest couples I've had the pleasure of meeting, and I know Prince would love to help if you or your daughter have any other Disney wedding questions. Daphne, congratulations to you all!
