    Please recommend the best character dining place for a 3 year old to see Mickey Mouse...his favorite. Thank you:)

    Hi there Janice!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort has always been my children's favorite place to dine with Mickey Mouse. At this fun dining location, Guests will enjoy an amazing all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet while being greeted tableside by the "Fab 5."  My four children also enjoy 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast, which is located at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and traditionally features Mickey, Pluto, Lilo and Stitch. Character appearances are subject to change. That being said, the characters have remained the same at both of these dining locations for the past several years. 

    Guests may begin making Advanced Dining Reservations for Character Dining 180 days in advance. Please know that Chef Mickey's is one of the most popular dining locations and often books up months in advance. You can book your Advanced Dining Reservation via My Disney Experience app, by calling Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463, or by going online.

    I hope this information is helpful in making the best decision for your family. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Janice!

    Bon Appétit,
