“Join some favorite Disney Friends for a fun-filled feast at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.”
On December 22, 1995, the restaurant Chef Mickey’s opened in Walt Disney World’s Contemporary Resort, replacing the Contemporary Café. The restaurant contains American cuisine at an indoor buffet, which features the famous Mickey waffles for breakfast, and a sundae bar at dinner where guests can customize their own ice cream sundae. Chef Mickey’s is also known for character dining, where guests can interact with the original Disney characters: Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald, and Goofy. Guests are also treated to a view of the monorail as travels to and from the Magic Kingdom. This restaurant is not to be confused with the restaurant of the same name that existed in Downtown Disney from July, 1990 to September, 1995.
