    Hi First I would like to say I am so happy I found this site it is great!!! My ? is I am traveling Oct 14-23 with my 22 mo son and would like to take him to a character lunch or dinner(he sleeps late haha) what would you suggest He loves Mickey!! Thanks

    Hi Jamie!

    Wow, a 22 month old who sleeps late?  Where were you when my kids were screaming their heads off at 5:15 am on the nose every morning at that age?

    If your little man is a fan of Mickey, I recommend making a character dinner reservation at Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort.  In my opinion, this is "the" quintessential Disney character dining experience.  Dinner features Mickey, Goofy, Pluto, Donald and Minnie (many of your son's Playhouse Disney Pals!)  The atmosphere is very celebratory as the characters make their rounds around the tables for pictures and autographs with their adoring fans.  The food is set up in an all-you-care-to-eat buffet and is very good.  The menu is extensive, making it easy for even the pickiest eaters to find something that they'll enjoy.  Chef Mickey's also has a super cool "dessert bar", where kids (and grown ups) can make their own sundaes, pick out some yummy cookies and sample a variety of other sweet treats!  For a sneak peak of the menu, visit the independent website and search "dining" from the home page. 

    As you can guess, Chef Mickey's is extremely popular, so if you'd like to dine here, I recommend making an advanced dining reservation as close as possible to your 90 travel window by calling 407-WDW-DINE or booking online by clicking HERE.

    Have a magical trip!
