    We have a 9pm reservation at Chef Mickey's. Can we make it back to our room at the Polynesian for the 10pm fireworks?

    Hi Jennifer,

    You're going to enjoy Chef Mickey's character buffet, but you would not enjoy having to eat and run. Adding in the time it takes to catch the monorail back to Disney's Polynesian Resort, you would have about 10 minutes to eat, and you'll miss seeing your favorite Disney friends.  My experience is that character rotation through the restaurant takes about an hour, so you would really not have enough time to get back to your resort. My recommendation is to take all the time you need to enjoy your dinner, take pictures of your family with Mickey Mouse and save the fireworks viewing for another evening.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  Come back and see us if there's anything else we can help you with.

    Be Magical,

    Leanne T.

Walt Disney captured my heart as a little girl and has not let go since. As a parent and grandparent, I have been to the Walt Disney World Resort with children of all ages, and also as empty nesters. I would like to share my years of experience so that you are able to start your own tradition of Walt Disney World memories, just as I have. Learn More About Leanne
