    I wanted to know if I can use the Contemporary hotel's beach view to watch the Electrical Water Pageant after we dine at Chef Mickey's? Also, how long does it take to dine at Chef Mickey's?

    Hi Debbie,

    Of course you can!  I highly recommend that you take the time to enjoy the Electrical Water Pageant during your vacation to Walt Disney World.  I have loved this delightful display since I was a child.  You can watch it from the beaches at any of the following resorts:  Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, and Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.  Just ask Guest Services at any of these resorts and they will tell you what time they expect the Electrical Water Pageant to pass that evening.  For instance, if the weather cooperates, the Pageant will pass the beach at Disney's Wilderness Lodge at 9:35 pm. 

    As for how long it takes to eat at Chef Mickey's, that varies by family.  The meal at this restaurant is a buffet so you can largely control how long it takes to eat.  However, I wouldn't rush your meal because, as you are eating, Mickey and his friends will come by to visit with you.  You don't want to miss the chance to get some amazing photos with these characters.  In general, I would estimate the experience will take an hour. 

    Wishing you a lovely vacation at Walt Disney World!
