The Buffet is Returning to Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort! chef mickeys

Disney just announced on their Disneyeats Instagram page that starting March 1st, 2023, Chef Mickey’s will transition into an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet style. In 2021 character dining finally returned to the believed restaurant, and now finally, the buffet is making a comeback. We can finally say this spot is back to “normal.”

Chef Mickey’s Buffet Overview

Chef Mickey’s is located on the fourth-floor concourse of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It’s open, lively, energetic, and bustling with activity. You’ll soon be singing, clapping, and twirling your napkin overhead. This character meal is one of the most popular that Disney offers. Mickey and Friends will be your hosts. In addition to Mickey, you may see Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald. (subject to change.)

Here are several articles documenting experiences at Chef Mickey’s

This is very exciting news, and I can’t wait to go check out the buffet when it reopens. Will you be taking a trip to Chef Mickey’s after the change?

Hi, I'm Erica, and I write about all things Disney. Before working for The DIS, I was a theme park performer at SeaWorld, but I also performed at Disney. I have such an immense love for theme parks to the point I studied them in college.
