    We're going magic kingdom, I'd love to have a character dining experience with Mickey Mouse, can I only make these reservations at restaurants inside the magic kingdom park or can we go to Chef Mickeys?

    Hi Sincere, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Wow! You must be so excited for your upcoming trip next month! You are definitely a vacation planning rock star for including Character Dining experiences in your plans. Mickey and the gang are so busy having fun in the Magic Kingdom parade down Main Street U.S.A., entertaining guests at Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage and posing for photos at the Town Square Theater, that Mickey does not have a Character Dining experience in the Magic Kingdom.

    I am happy to tell you that in between parades, shows, and selfies, he is working hard in the kitchen at Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort Hotel. You can savor his magnificent feast during breakfast, brunch or dinner. If you like a good old-fashioned BBQ, you can also enjoy a foot-stomping good time at Mickey’s Backyard BBQ at the Fort Wilderness Pavillion located at the Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, just a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom. This dinner show will have all of your favorite country picnic foods to enjoy. Did I mention there is BBQ too? If you are visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you can find Mickey at the Tusker House Restaurant near the Harambe Marketplace. Take a break from your safari to experience some great tasting food with some African flair during any part of the day. Reservations are highly recommended and Character appearances are subject to change. You can make your reservations online or by calling (407) 939-5277.

    See ya real soon,
