Dining at Chef Mickey's for breakfast was the perfect end to our vacation. This fun and festive character buffet meal is our kids favorite, and they request it each time we visit WDW. Standouts on the buffet include Mickey waffles, breakfast pizza, ready-made omelettes, and vegetable lasagna, in addition to all the usual breakfast fare such as pancakes, bacon, sausage, pastries, fruit, and much more.

Located in the Magic Kingdom near the hub of mainstreet it's a great way beat the mid-day heat during lunch hours.The buffet offers a wide variety of choices including, salads, pasta dishes, soups, carved meats (the roast beef was excellent), seafood choices, breads, desserts and an ice cream station complete with soft serve and toppings!Pooh and friends make the rounds here ...Read More
