    My 2 yr old loves Mickey. We would like to get a picture with he and Mickey but don't want to wait in long lines. Is there a way to schedule a photo with Mickey?

    Hi Tara!

    I'm so glad you've asked... I have a perfect suggestion for you to avoid long lines awaiting a photo with the Big Cheese! On the day you intend to visit Magic Kingdom, schedule a breakfast, lunch or dinner at Chef Mickey's located inside Disney's Contemporary Resort. Your family can board Disney's Monorail from the Magic Kingdom and be transported directly to the Contemporary Resort. It's very important to book an Advanced Dining Reservation here as Chef Mickey's is one of the most popular character meals at Walt Disney World. You can do so up to 180 days prior to your arrival.

    Not only will you experience an awesome character interaction with Mickey Mouse, but his gang will be there, too! Although characters are subject to change, you can anticipate meeting Mickey Mouse, Chip, Dale, Pluto, Goofy, Donald Duck and Mickey's leading lady, Minnie Mouse, of course.

    Chef Mickey's offers an expansive all-you-care-to-eat buffet and is a participating dining location charging 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan

    Be sure to ask us any other questions you may have regarding your upcoming trip. 

    I wish you a magical vacation, Tara, and we hope to see ya real soon!
