    Hello! Quick question.... Would you rather eat at Chef MIckeys for breakfast or dinner? Thanks panelists! :D

    Hi Olivia!

    Chef Mickey's is a great place to start or end a perfect Disney day!  We've eaten both breakfast and dinner there, and if I had to pick, I'd recommend dinner. Here are a few reasons behind my "vote".  My kids are usually so anxious to begin their day at the parks, that I find it difficult to convince them to sit an eat anything other than a few bites before the "when are we going on Space Mountain" chant begins.  After a day at Magic Kingdom, however, dinner with Chef Mickey is a great way to relax, talk about our day and continue the magic.  While characters are subject to change, my kids like the ability to dine with all of their top-picks at once.  Dinner features Chef Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto.  My youngest son has a big time crush on Minnie, and she makes his dinner extra special.  Breakfast features Mickey, Chip & Dale and Goofy.  My kids love the children's dinner buffet, especially the Mickey-shaped mac and cheese and ravioli.  Finally, my kids are partial to the dessert bar that's set up at dinner, complete with make-your-own ice cream sundaes with Mickey sprinkles. 

    To be totally honest, both meals are wonderful, and I'm guessing you will be very happy with either.  Chef Mickey's can be a tough reservation to "snag", as it's quite popular, so whichever you chose, I recommend calling the Disney Dining Line up to 90 days before your arrival to reserve your spot with the "Big Cheese"!

    Have a wonderful trip!
