Chef Mickey’s at Walt Disney World Will Be Relocated for Over Two Weeks

Chef Mickey’s is an extremely popular character dining experience at Walt Disney World.  The restaurant is typically open for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.  Each of the meals are character meals with classic Disney characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy.  We have received confirmation that the restaurant will need to be relocated from July 28th through August 13th.  The restaurant is being relocated temporarily due to unexpected maintenance that needs to be completed and can’t occur when the restaurant is in its regular daily operation. During this time the restaurant will be relocated to the convention center area at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.


Guests will still get to dine on the same great food and they will still get to meet and greet with the same characters, even with the temporary change in location.  Disney will be contacting guests directly to inform them of the change if they will be dining during this time period.  This is one of the most popular character dining restaurants in all of Walt Disney World.  The restaurant is constantly booked up, so it is definitely understandable why they would move the relocation rather than close completely for a couple pf weeks.

Do any of our readers have reservations at Chef Mickey’s during this time?  What do you think of the change?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
