    Is Mickey's Backyard BBQ still not open?

    Hello Patricia! Welcome to planDisney!

    Do you know I've been to Walt Disney World Resort DOZENS of times and the very first time I ever set foot on Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort property was this past December?! I'm not sure what took me so long, but I will definitely be heading back! The ambiance of the Resort was amazing, from seeing the beautiful holiday light displays to watching Guests take a ride on their very own Horse Drawn Excursion, to stopping by the Tri-Circle-D Ranch and visiting with Cinderella's Ponies, the Resort offers so much more than I ever knew!

    Unfortunately, Mickey's Backyard BBQ has been closed for quite some time now and I have not heard any whispers about it returning to the Resort any time soon.  It is unfortunate because I know many Guests who loved the food and the experience, but there are certainly other entertaining options to try on this trip instead!  Did you know that the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, also located at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort is returning this summer?  If you're in for a rowdy but fun dinner show, complete with great barbeque and lots of fun, this would be my pick! Reservations open in just a few weeks for dining beginning June 23, 2022!

    If it's character pals that you're looking for, especially the Big Man himself, you might want to look at Character Dining locations such as Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort or the Garden Grill Restaurant in EPCOT.  Both of these locations will provide you and your party with a chance to see some of your favorite characters, all while enjoying delicious buffet and family-style meals!  We've never left hungry from either location and we always have so much fun! 

    Have a wonderful time planning, and come back to see us again with any other questions!
