    I've heard that sometimes Mickey scuba dives in the tank at Coral Reef restaurant in Epcot. Is there a schedule to you know when that's happening? We plan to eat there in July, but would be flexible on the date if we could happen to see it. Thanks!

    Hi Julienne!

    Dining at Coral Reef Restaurant is definitely an experience, and getting a surprise visit from scuba diving Mickey Mouse makes that experience even better!  Because there is no set schedule, I can't tell you exactly when Mickey Mouse will dive, but you may get lucky!  Even without seeing Mickey Mouse, you can still enjoy the beautiful fish in the living coral reef aquarium while eating some pretty amazing dishes!

    If seeing characters during your dining experience is a must-do, there are some other options for you.  If you would like to stay in the area, Chip 'n' Dale's Harvest Feast at The Garden Grill gives you awesome views of Living with the Land while you get to meet Chip 'n' Dale and some of their other Disney Character friends.  If you want to hop on over to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for breakfast, you can go to 'Ohana and enjoy some American breakfast favorites influenced by Polynesian flavors while getting the chance to meet Lilo, Stitch, and some of their other Disney Character friends at the Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch.  You can also stroll over to Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort and enjoy Chef Mickey's Fun Time Buffet.  Here, you might meet Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck, or even Goofy.  No matter what you choose, you can't go wrong with any of the amazing dining options that the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
