    I have an 8:45 pm dinner reservation at Chef Mickey's. Do the characters stay and walk around for the whole dinner time or are they just there at the beginning? If they are there only at the beginning, can we go early and wait in the lobby to see them?

    Hi Layla!!!

    Thank you so much for your question!!

    Chef Mickey's is one of my favorite Character Dining Experiences!!!  I love the chance to meet and interact with the Fab Five!!!

    Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto will be walking around while you eat.  They will be coming around during your entire meal.  You wouldn't be able to see them while you wait in the lobby area since they only walk around in the dining area.

    Just be sure to keep your camera out on the table so you can grab it and take pics since they can walk up at any time.

    Thank you again for your question and have a magical trip!!
