Chef Mickey’s… What can I say? So many memories, most of them hilarious. We first went when I was pretty little, and we brought my friend Paris and her family along (they happened to be in Disney the same time we were.). It’s a buffet style affair, and I have to say that we had a lot of… fun choosing out own food. I imagine it was difficult for the parents- there were six kids between the two families, all between the ages of 3 and 9. And we all had to go through the buffet line at once.



Dessert was, if anything, more cacophonous than dinner, for one reason: self-serve, soft-serve ice cream machines. My dad was supposed to be watching Paris’s little brother Roman, who was getting himself ice cream. However, Dad got distracted and when he turned back to the little boy, he’d filled his bowl more than 6 inches tall with chocolate ice cream. They both ended up getting a rather incredulous look from my friend’s mother.


I forgot to mention that Chef Mickey’s is also a character restaurant. Mickey, Donald, Pluto, Goofy, and Minnie (and possibly Daisy, I can’t remember) go from table to table in chefs’ outfits and take pictures with the kids. Even that managed to end in hilarious confusion that day. First Donald stepped on Paris’s foot by accident. This prompted Chrissy, my sister, to “goose” the poor duck. Meanwhile, Paris attempted to tattle on Donald to Mickey Mouse, who just kept smiling and gave her a hug.


Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed our Chef Mickey’s exploits. We actually went back recently, when we were staying in the Contemporary (where Chef Mickey’s is located) but I’ll be putting that story in another post soon! Believe me, more laughs are on the way!
