    Hello! My family of 5 have dinner reservations at Chef Mickey's December 15, will there be characters at that time for the children to meet and will there be a spot somewhere close for us to catch MK's firework show that evening as well?

    Welcome back, Nikki!

    How exciting you are planning to enjoy dinner and fireworks at Disney's Contemporary Resort! I am happy to confirm that Mickey Mouse and his Pals will be hand to say hello during your dinner at Chef Mickey's. Each character will make their way to your table to sign autographs and pose for photos. Keep in mind that a Disney PhotoPass Service photographer will take your photo before you are seated, but will need your own camera for photos with characters once inside the restaurant. 

    After dinner, you can make your way across the Grand Canyon Concourse to the 4th-floor observation deck where you can view Wishes! Nighttime Spectacular. This area has limited seating, but ample standing room and you can even hear the music of Wishes! Another great viewing location is just a short monorail ride away! The beach and marina areas at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort offer some great water views and are easily accessible. 

    I hope you enjoy your meal at Chef Mickey's, Nikki! Please let us know if you have additional questions as you continue to plan your visit. 

    Happy Planning!
