    We have reservations for Chef Mickeys though we are not staying at the Contemporary. How long before our meal reservation can we enter and park at the resort? And is there a time limit as to how long we can leave our car there that day?

    Hi Anna!

    In only about a month, you will be at Walt Disney World in sight of Cinderella Castle ready to fly with Dumbo, spin in tea cups, and meet 999 happy haunts!

    All my kids are now taller than I am, but we still love a meal with the Disney Fab Five at Chef Mickey's. This location offers such a fun vibe and plenty of delightful food. Plus a monorail runs above you while you eat Mickey waffles! Your dining reservation allows you three hours of complimentary parking. You may arrive early and enjoy exploring Disney's Contemporary Resort. I would plan to arrive about an hour in advance, so you have plenty of time to enjoy your meal without being concerned with parking times. You will check in with security at the parking lot's entrance; typically you will need to show id. 

    Enjoy your meal with Mickey and the gang!
