    I am very excited about Mickey's Backyard BBQ. Can you please explain category 1, 2 and 3 seating for it? I don't know what to book? thank you!

    Hey Toni!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your awesome question about Mickey’s Backyard BBQ!

    I can understand why you are so excited about Mickey’s Backyard BBQ — this hootin’ tootin’ hoedown is one of my favorite character dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort! From the country-western tunes to the all-you-can-eat BBQ feast, you can’t go wrong with a visit to this magical rodeo led by some of your favorite Disney friends.

    Toni, there are two seating categories available at Mickey’s Backyard BBQ: Category 1 and Category 2. These categories have different costs and benefits. Category 1 has a higher cost, but a ton of added value!

    Category 1 Guests enjoy the following benefits:

    - Early access to the Mickey’s Backyard BBQ Pavilion.
    - Priority seating that gets you closer to the fun!
    - A character greeting with Mickey and his special pals prior to the show.
    - Early access to all food and beverages — yum, yum!

    In my opinion, upgrading from Category 1 to Category 2 is well worth it! If you decide to book Category 1 seating for Mickey’s Backyard BBQ, please arrive at least 1 hour prior to the start of the show.

    Toni, if you have any other questions, please visit us again. We are all EARS!

    Wishing you a Magical Hoedown,
