    I'm not staying in the Disney resorts but I would like to dine at Chef Mickeys. How much time will I need to get to the restaurant form outside of the park?

    Hi, Anthony!    Since I don't know where you are staying, it is hard to give a travel time.    Assuming your hotel is near International Drive, plan on 45 minutes to 1 hour travel time.   You will want to drive as if you are going to  the Magic Kingdom then follow the signs to the Contemporary Resort.   You will be given a temporary parking permit that allows you to park at the Contemporary during your dining time.  If you are a few minutes early, take time to enjoy the awesome lobby area and shops inside the resort.  

    Chef Mickey's is a very popular dining destination, so make sure you make Advance Dining Reservations either on-line or by calling (407)WDW-DINE.

    To get directions and approximate travel times, go to, type in your resort address and the address for the Contemporary:  4600 N. World Dr.  Orlando, FL  32830.

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
