    Years ago on a prior vacation we went to a fun country ho-down on an island that you took a boat to. It was a party that was a picnic type thing and Mickey and Minnie were there dressed in country outfits and a country band played. Do they still do this?

    Hiya, Susan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for stopping by to bring us your question.  

    Susan, it sounds like you are referring to Mickey's Backyard BBQ, a rootin’tootin’, foot-stomping barbeque buffet. Located at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, you can start your adventure from Magic Kingdom by taking a ferry boat to this country party with character! So I’m thinking this might be what you attended during your previous vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Good news, Susan! If this was indeed the country celebration you remember, you can enjoy it during your upcoming visit. Reservations are limited and can fill up fast, so be sure to lock in your preferred dates by visiting the website and using the reservations tool online to browse available dates.

    I hope you have a yeehaw time during your visit! And if you have any additional questions or need planning advice, please do come back and see us again. It’s our pleasure to assist you as you dream up and plan an unforgettable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    See ya real soon!
