    Hi! We're traveling to WDW in February for the Princess 10K. We would love to take the kids to Mickey's Backyard BBQ, but there are no dates available during the weekend. Will it be available then??? Thanks!

    Greetings, Kyle! 

    First, I want to thank you for your patience in my reply! I've just returned from the 2014 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend; which has me incredibly excited for you to experience the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend and Enchanted 10K! 

    Mickey's Backyard BBQ is a seasonal dining experience that closes for January and February each year. However, there are some other fun and unique suggestions I have that are available.

    Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue- The shenanigans here are high-spirited and fun as you enjoy some finger-licking family-style grub! Your children will also love the knee-slappin' entertainment - they even get to be part of the action when they pass out washboards for them to make their own special brand of music.

    Whispering Canyon Cafe- This lively restaurant also offers a great time for the family. Here, children have the opportunity to get out of their seats and have a hoedown around the restaurant during the hobby horse races. Additionally, the fare offered will be similar to the chow you would get a Mickey's Backyard BBQ.

    Chef Mickey's Fun Time Buffet- If time with the main mouse is what you're after, Chef Mickey's where he's at! Celebrate your race accomplishment and have a little fun with your children, too! This all-you-care-to-eat buffet is fun, fun, fun for the whole family!

    I hope this helps, Kyle! Please send me any questions you may have. There are no major race weekends for awhile, so I promise a much quicker response!

    Happy Planning,
