Disney 2011 on a Budget – Day 2 Chef Mickey’s!

So after a full day at the Magic Kingdom, our Day 2 agenda was a little more laid back! We had reservations (be sure and make them 180 days in advance!) at Chef Mickey’s at Disney's Contemporary Resort at 9:10am and then we planned to spend the rest of the day at The Windsor Hills Resort pool!

To get to Disney's Contemporary Resort, you have to go through the main Magic Kingdom gates. I thought they would charge us for parking, but we told the attendant that we were going to Disney's Contemporary Resort and he let us right through. Parking was free at the hotel.

 We arrived at Chef Mickey’s on the fourth floor of the resort and the kids loved to watch the Monorail zipping through the hotel! We had to wait in line to get our picture taken with a life size Mickey by a photographer, and then we were quickly seated at our table. Right away the boys started to spot Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto! They were so excited! The waitress explained to us that each character makes their way around the restaurant and comes to every table.

The food was delicious! They had an incredible buffet with pancakes, Mickey shaped waffles, omelets, fresh fruits, cereals, potatoes, breakfast meats, and much more! We got our food and began to eat. Before we knew it, here came Mickey right to our table. The boys got to hug him and we got lots of pictures. We then had Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto all come to our table! By far this was the absolute BEST way to meet the characters!

We were also able to purchase a packet of pictures that were taken when we entered Chef Mickey’s. The package cost us $29.95 plus tax, but you received a 5x7, 3-4x6, and a few pictures of the characters in a keepsake book. I kind of felt like I was on a cruise ship!

 he meal was on the expensive side, $32.95 for adults, $15.95 for my 5-year old and my 2 year old was FREE! All in all it was well worth the money to see the look on my boys’ faces. I think this was one of their favorite parts of the whole Disney trip and perhaps mine too!

The boys, and us had the best time at Chef Mickey’s. I definitely recommend a character breakfast as a “must do” on your Walt Disney World adventure!

After breakfast, the boys wanted to ride the Monorail. So we were able to jump on it at Disney's Contemporary Resort and ride the complete loop. They loved it! Nice relaxing time and you were able to see the other hotels on the Monorail loop.
