Disney Chef Mickey’s Breakfast

Breakfast is served at Chef Mickey’s from 7am to 11.30am each day. It is a great chance to meet your Disney favorite characters Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Chip and Dale.

Disney Chef Mickey’s Buffet Breakfast is priced at $42 for adults and $27 for children aged 3 to 9. This doesn’t include tax and gratuity.

You can also use a full service dining credit if you are using the Disney Dining Plan. As dinner costs more it is a better use of the credit to use it for dinner if you have a choice.

Choice of Cereals including Corn Flakes and Fruit Loops
Selection of Freshly Cooked Omelets
Scrambled Eggs

Chef Mickey Brunch

This option is not being served right now – check back for further details.

The Chef Mickey Brunch was served from 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. every day. This is a good option if you have gone early into Magic Kingdom park and want to take a break out for something to eat in the middle of the day.

It is easy to get out from Magic Kingdom on the monorail. You can either park hop or go back to Magic Kingdom after your Chef Mickey brunch.

It is also a good option if you want to dine without having a park ticket.

The sample menu can include:

Smoked Salmon and Smoked Trout with accompaniments
Classic Caesar Salad
Cheddar Cheese Chunks
Assorted Yogurts and More
Seasonal Salads
Hard-boiled Eggs
Peel-n-Eat Shrimp

You could also go for dinner at Chef Mickeys. Dinner is served from 5pm to 9.30pm every day. The characters featured are usually Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald Duck.

The menu does change from time to time but here is a typical selection of what is on offer at Chef Mickey’s all you can eat dinner buffet. The menu does change, but here is an idea of what you can expect.

Selection of Soup and Salads

Carvery Table Items usually including Beef

Oven Roasted Chicken with Bourbon BBQ Sauce
Mango BBQ Pork Ribs

Orecchiette Pasta, Cherry tomatoes & mushrooms in a roasted red pepper cream sauce

There is also a separate children’s buffet available which is sure to please even the most picky of eaters. It usually includes such choices as:

Pluto’s Chicken
Chef Mickey’s Macaroni and Cheese
Goofy’s Cheese Pizza
Chicken Tenders

Of course a buffet meal is mot complete without a great selection of desserts and you will certainly find something to tempt you at Chef Mickey’s.

The Peach Cobbler and the Bread and Butter Pudding are particular favorites. If you are feeling a little more health conscious there is a selection of Fresh Fruit available.

Will your family enjoy Chef Mickey’s? It is one of the most popular dining experiences and it is a great place to see your Disney characters.

It is conveniently located in the Contemporary Resort so you can even visit on a day when you don’t want to use a theme park entrance ticket but still be a part of the Disney magic. It is very popular (and can be pretty loud).

Be aware that it is likely there will be whole lot of young children there so don’t go to Chef Mickey’s expecting a quite, relaxing meal! But if you want good quality buffet food with some of the most popular characters in Disney World then Chef Mickeys is a great option!
