Characters at Cafe Mickey in Evening

Hi everyone,

I have a slight conundrum.

It is my birthday when we are out there on the 17th October. I was hoping to see dreams everynight of our trip. Dreams will be starting at 8pm, so I was wondering wether it will be feasible to have a character meal and cake at Cafe Mickey at about 5.30pm and go back in to the park at about 7.30pm. Or shall I just man up and book for 8.30pm after Dreams has finished?

What time do the characters start and finish?

Any ideas or advice is welcomed! :0)

Martin

If memory serves me correct characters start at 6.30 PM.

Is Cafe Mickey even open at 5.30 already?

unless theres a particular reason why eating at 8.30pm is too late for you, then I'd go for an 8.30pm reservation.

The characters are there in the evening from just after 6pm until the restaurant closes well after 10pm.

When we are at Cafe Mickey in the evening, we are usually there for around 2 hours, just to see as many of the characters as we can .

It's open non stop but you only get the characters at lunch and dinner.

8:30pm would be cutting it a bit close. Dreams is 20mins and it's unlikely to start until after 8pm. It can take quite a while to get out of the park.

Agreed HappyTappy - but you do get 15 minutes grace at all the restaurants before they give your table away. I'd probably book for 8.45pm instead though.
