    We plan to make dinner reservations at Chef Mickey's soon for our trip to WDW in late April. Is there a time period at dinner that we are more likely to see the characters?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Rodger! 

    Chef Mickey's Fun Time Buffet is definitely a must-do dining experience. One of my favorite things about this fun meal is getting to visit with the "Fab Five" while enjoying a buffet meal that offers something for everyone. Plus, it frees up time to enjoy non-character attractions while in the theme parks. 

    Oh boy! Oh boy! I'm excited to let you know the Characters constantly make their way around the restaurant and are very consistent with their visits throughout all dining hours. There isn't a time you're more likely to see them because they are always moving table-to-table. You are free to select a dining time that best meets your family's needs and rest in the assurance you'll get to visit with the whole gang. 

    I hope this is helpful as you make your Advanced Dining Reservation plan for your April vacation, Rodger! Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I am always ready to talk Disney dining. 

    Grab your napkins and get ready to "Celebrate!"
