    We will be visiting Disney at Christmas for the first time this year. We booked Chef Mickey’s for a buffet ON Christmas Day. I was wondering if anyone has done this before and knows if the characters will be dressed in Christmas attire or the normal?

    Hi Kelly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Christmas this year is going to be so magical while celebrating at Walt Disney World Resort! Mickey, Minnie and all their friends will be thrilled to celebrate the season with you. My family and I have spent multiple holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. I remember one Thanksgiving having a turkey leg for dinner followed by a Mickey's Premium Ice Cream bar for dessert! Yum!

    Eating at Chef Mickey's on Christmas Day will be so fun! At Character Dining experiences, the characters typically wear the same attire all year-round. So on Christmas Day, you can expect to see Mickey Mouse dressed and ready to make a meal for you in his chef hat! If you're looking to see characters dressed in their holiday finest, I recommend grabbing tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! There, Mickey and his friends typically get dressed up to celebrate the holiday season with Guests.

    I'm so excited for your upcoming Disney vacation! I'm wishing you and your family the most festive time! If you have any other questions before your trip, please come back and visit us again!
