    Hello! I have a dinner reservation at Chef Mickey’s for 9pm. It says online that they close at 9:30. Do you stay open later to finish these meals or will we have to eat in 30 mins? Also where should we park to be able to get back to our hotel?

    Hello Carol!

    I am excited that you are planning an incredible dinner at Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort. I love Chef Mickey's, especially the buffet and character interaction.

    You should be okay with your Chef Mickey's Advanced Dining Reservation being at 9:00 pm, and Chef Mickey's is scheduled to close at 9:30 pm. The scheduled close time of 9:30 pm means that Chef Mickey's will not accept new dining Guests after 9:30 pm. As long as you enter the restaurant before 9:30 pm, you will be able to take your time to finish your meal. According to my experience, Guests are permitted to take their time to complete their meal without being rushed or kicked out of the restaurant.

    If you have a vehicle, I would recommend that you park at Disney's Contemporary Resort so you can use your vehicle to get back to your hotel. Guests who have Advanced Dining Reservations at Chef Mickey's can park at Disney's Contemporary Resort during their meal. 

    I hope that your Chef Mickey's dinner is magical on your next Walt Disney World vacation!
