    We are dining at chef Mickey’s at the contemporary and are staying at all star music resort for the first time. What is the best way to get from our resort to the restaurant? Thank you!

    Hiya, Beth!

    Thanks for stopping by with a swell Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! Oh boy... you've mentioned one of my son's favorite Character Dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort: Chef Mickey's. I'm here to help you understand your transportation options to get you from Point A to Point B for a delightful dining experience!

    Beth, when it comes to Walt Disney World Resort Transportation, Guests have a multitude of complimentary options to choose from. If you hope to rely solely on these offerings, I would recommend the following options, listed in order of speed/efficiency (in my opinion):
    • Take complimentary bus transportation from Disney's All-Star Music Resort to Magic Kingdom Park. Utilize the walking path connecting Magic Kingdom Park to Disney's Contemporary Resort (approximately 10-15 minutes walking time). You'll find Chef Mickey's located on the fourth floor of the resort!
    • Take complimentary bus transportation from your resort to Magic Kingdom Park, then hop aboard the Resort Monorail after going through the security checkpoint at the theme park. Disney's Contemporary Resort is located just one stop away from the theme park.
    • Utilize complimentary bus transportation to head to Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park, or Disney Springs. Once you've arrived at one of these destinations, transfer to a bus headed to Disney's Contemporary Resort.
    If you'd prefer a method requiring less time and no transfers, consider booking a ride with Disney Minnie Van service, a paid personal ride service powered by the Lyft mobile app! For a small fee, your family will be whisked away in an adorable polka-dotted vehicle that'll take you directly from Disney's All-Star Music Resort to Disney's Contemporary Resort. This option is especially desirable for those wishing to simplify their transportation, taking the least time possible.

    Beth, I hope these suggestions help you to prepare for your super special dining experience at Chef Mickey's. Very soon, your travel party will be pumpin' up the party with familiar Disney Character friends! If you have any additional questions throughout your stay at Disney's All-Star Music Resort, you can always stop back by planDisney again. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
