    Hi there looking at dining and wondered why mickeys backyard bbq is not taking bookings is this for refurbishment or permanent? Thank you

    Hi Eve!
    Thanks for visiting us and submitting your question!

    I'm terribly sorry to inform you that Mickey's Backyard BBQ will be closed for the foreseeable future; there is currently no expected reopening date in sight.  However, please don't let that discourage you! There are some amazing dinner shows still available at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Allow me to suggest two that my family just loves to visit when we are at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show takes place each night at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  It's an incredible luau show that includes hula dancing and an amazing knife performer.  The menu is delicious! It's an all-you-care-to-eat tropical feast of pulled pork, ribs, chicken and more.

    The Hoop Dee Do Musical Revue is offered several times each evening at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort.  It's a fun musical revue show, complete with audience interaction (which makes it SO much fun) and a delicious menu including (but not limited to) some of the best fried chicken I've ever tasted, smoked ribs, corn bread, and strawberry shortcake.

    Eve, I hope you find a new family favorite during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Please come back and see us with any additional questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
