    Susan from SC Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    My last question was not addressed. I was asking specifically about Character dining at both Chef Mickey inside the Contemporary & The Crystal Palace. I’ll be there in December so can I please get specific information about those locations?

    Hi Susan!

    Welcome back to planDisney.

    With so many changes in recent months, we here at the Walt Disney World Resort are working hard to assure that our Guests have the most magical time while keeping everyone safe!

    Currently at Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is open for Breakfast only. Breakfast is served family-style and is all-you-care-to-enjoy. No character dining is offered at this location at the current time. The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom Park is temporarily unavailable.  At this time, there is no timeline as to when dining offerings at these locations will change.

    Since I am sure you are eager to plan your dining reservations for your upcoming stay, I would recommend that you consider other locations if you are looking for character dining locations. Garden Grill Restaurant in EPCOT offers a modified character dining experience with a family-style feast. Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera at Disney’s Riviera Resort also offers a modified character experience at Breakfast a la Art with Mickey & Friends. Both options provide delicious food and a great atmosphere.

    Although there is no timeline for restarting character dining at the locations you mentioned above, I hope you can enjoy one of the alternatives mentioned above. Dining reservations are highly recommended and can be made starting 60 days in advance of your stay. I also recommend following the Disney Parks Blog as they provide updates and breaking news!

    I hope that you and your family have the most magical time!
