    We have reservations for Mickey's Backyard BBQ at Fort Wilderness, but we are staying at the Art of Animation Resort. Will we be allowed park at Fort Wilderness for the dinner show?

    Hi Tracy! My family loves the Mickey's Backyard Barbecue and I find it one of the best character experiences on property. Who can resist dancing with Mickey and Minnie!

    If you are using a car you will tell the guard at the gate you are there for Mickey's Backyard Barbecue. He will direct you to the resort parking. From there you will hop on an internal bus from the bus depot area you will see when you park your car. It will be a short ride down to the marina end of the resort where you will find the location for this great dining event. There will be cast members around to ask for specific directions but take the path to the left when you see the large playground next to Trails End restaurant. Buses will be available for your return trip back to your car once the evening comes to an end.

    Get ready for some great food and some awesome live entertainment. Add to that some of your favorite characters and what a fun evening it will be for the whole family.
