    Day one is at MK..then dinner at Chef Mickey at 7PM..Wondering the best way to get to Chef Mickey and then back to Pop Century from there, using Disney transportation? How much time is needed to get from MK to Chef Mickey? Thank You!!


    Chef Mickey's is located in the Contemporary resort, just a 5-minute monorail ride from the entrance gates of the Magic Kingdom. Once you get off the monorail inside the Contemporary, you'll see the restaurant below. Just make your way down via the escalator. I would give myself a good 25 to minutes to get there though so that you can make your way out of the park and up to the monorail station, allow yourself some wait time for the monorail and give you enough time to get off an down to the restaurant. 

    To get back to Pop Century, you can either walk from the Contemporary back over to the Disney bus pickup area for Magic Kingdom or take the monorail back to the Magic Kingdom, visiting the other Magic Kingdom resorts along the way and then walk over to the bus pavilions. Either way, it will take you roughly the same amount of time.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
