    Will Mickeys Outdoor BBQ be opened on January 18,2018?

    Hello Beth!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Mickey's Backyard BBQ is one of the most family-friendly meals in all of Walt Disney World Resort. The combination of traditional fare, popular Disney Characters and the rustic ambience of Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort make it a truly unique experience.

    Due to being an outdoor Dining Event, the popularity of the event varies from season to season and is therefore only offered on select nights. During the colder(relatively speaking) January, Advanced Dining Reservations are currently only being offered for Saturdays.

    It is common for Mickey's Backyard BBQ to only be offered once or twice a week during months with historically lower attendance. However, frequently schedules for Character Dining Events change and if popularity demands it, more nights may open up for the experience on January 18th.

    I recommend that you plan Advanced Dining Reservations or look into other experiences such as the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue over at Pioneer Hall at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. Since it is an indoor activity and a Walt Disney World Resort mainstay, the shows run far more frequently and the dinner is just as traditional.

    Bon Appétit!
