    What are the odds of getting into chef mickeys for my sons first birthday, Dec 8th? We are local, didn’t realize it would fill up so quick and couldn’t get a reservation. They’ll be 9-10 of us. Can we just walk in? I’m super disappointed…

    Hi Kim!

    Welcome to planDisney! A wonderful reason to visit the Walt Disney World Resort is, of course, to celebrate! What better milestone to celebrate than your child's very first birthday. There are several ways to mark a special birthday throughout the theme parks. You can stop at City Hall and get a happy birthday button, or a special happy birthday balloon. You can order a celebration cake at many of the restaurants on Disney property, and you can have in-room decoration and celebration kits ordered from Disney Floral and Gifts.

    One fabulous way that we celebrate a birthday on property, is by dining at one of our favorite restaurants. Chef Mickeys, located at Disney's Contemporary Resort, allows you to enjoy fantastic food, while the Fab 5: Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto come around to greet you during your dining experience. Chef Mickey’s tends to book up very early, so I am sorry to hear that you were not able to secure a reservation for your upcoming stay. My best suggestion for you is to keep checking either the My Disney Experience app or the Walt Disney World website to see if any last-minute dining reservations can be accommodated. You can also try the walk-up list on the my Disney experience app which will allow you to join a waitlist for standby customers. It is not always available so keep that in mind when planning your dining experience.

    Please be sure to come back and ask us any Disney vacation planning questions you may have. I wish a happy birthday to your little one and hope that you have a most amazing time at the Walt Disney World Resort.
