    I was at WDW in 2018. Chef Mickeys had characters come by table. Coming in Feb & was planning to eat there. doesn't sound like characters at table happens now. Is that true? what breakfast has mickey Minnie Donald daisy & goofy.

    Hi Sherry!

    I'm so glad you stopped by with this question. My family is a big fan of Character Dining and tries to enjoy at least one magical meal with our favorite pals on each vacation. Let's dig in!

    You'll be happy to know that Breakfast at Chef Mickey's will include a delicious all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet and tableside visits from a few very special friends. Character appearances at all venues are always subject to change, but you'll typically see Mickey Mouse (the big cheese himself) as well as Goofy, Donald Duck, Pluto, and Minnie Mouse. As you dine with the iconic Monorail gliding past above, the Fab 5 will rotate around the restaurant and stop to pose for photos along the way. You'll even receive an autograph card as you enjoy this quintessential Disney dining experience.

    Based on my research, Daisy Duck is not usually on the roster at Chef Mickey's, but you can often see her during Breakfast à la Art at Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera (my personal favorite Character Dining experience). I've dined there on three different occasions and have always enjoyed the experience, but haven't encountered Goofy or Pluto during my visits. Daisy is also usually available alongside Minnie, Goofy, and Donald at Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe, while Mickey is off having other magical adventures. Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is another great option for visiting with Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Mickey Mouse in their adorable safari gear, but I've heard that Minnie is often busy exploring other vistas.

    If you are still hoping to meet more characters after your meal you can use your My Disney Experience Mobile App to find their meeting times and locations in the parks. Use the map icon (second from left) along the bottom of your app then select "Characters" from the drop-down list at the top of the screen. You can also filter by park, or toggle between a list or map view depending on your preference. 

    Sherry, I hope this helps you get ready to chow down and say cheese with your favorite pals. I know they'll be thrilled to see you!

    Magic and memories,
