Our Dinner at Chef Mickey's

We had an ADR for 5:00 at Chef Mickey's, so after the pool party it was back to our rooms to get ready. We took the bus to the MK, then rode the Monorail to the Contemporary. We arrived early & the lobby of the restaurant was filling up. I checked in, recieved our beeper & we waited close to the front desk. I noticed that people were starting to line up. We got in the line & were close to the front. The beeper went off & we were the second party shown to a table.

Our drink orders were taken, then we went up to the buffet. This was what I had chosen. I'm one of those people who hate to load up a plate. I figure that I can go back, so why pile everything together!

The next thing to show up was my drink, a Key Lime Martini. It was pure pleasure in a glass. Made for a calm Chef Mickey experience.

The Characters started to arrive.
First up, Donald!
Next up
The Girls were more thrilled than I thought they'd be.
Everyone's favorite pup! He signs on his nose!Pluto with the GDs The big cheese himself!

This was our anniversary gift, there were candles on the top.

I can't find my pictures of Goofy. He was so funny, he signed his name in Emily's book by placing the book on her head. After he left our table, he went to the next one to repeat the drill. The funny thing was, he came back with the other child's book & put it on Emily's head! He did that several times. She was so thrilled to be singled out like that! It was really special for her.

The food was surprisingly good! I think that the thing to do was to get that first seating. Everything was clean & presented very nicely. When we left, Bob made a remark about feeling sorry for the next group of people. The buffet was getty messy by that time. He would like to eat there again. It was one of his favorites. The only thing is, he doesn't want to be bother by the "stuffed animals". MEN!

They did the napkin waving, but it wasn't as entergetic as I thought it would be. We still had fun clapping & waving with the characters. Over all it was far better than I was anticipating. I would go again, but only for the first seating.

After dinner we made our way from the Contempory by way of the Monorail to the MK for a night of fun!


Up next our night at MK & Wishes.

Your grand daughters are so cute and they both look so happy and excited. Who doesn't love Chef Mickey?

And that Key Lime Martini????? YUMMY! I bet that was good!

The girls were so excited to see the characters. They really got into getting autographs. It was so funny how Bob didn't want to be around the characters. He would go get more to eat when they came around.

One thing that I forgot to mention was the fact that when Anne & the girls had gone to the MK the day before there were no Halloween decorations up. The next day when we went to MK after Chef Mickey's all of the Halloween things were there. They were amazed to see that!

I know, how cool is that, to have those decorations appear overnight!

That Key Lime Martini was so good, tasted just like key lime pie. The thing that I notice with drinks at the restaurant is that they seem weak on alcohol. The bars at the resorts, especially the pool bars seem to be much stronger. N
Love that about them!

MMM that martini looks good! Definitely helps make the grandma be much more relaxed!

WE did CM's for breakfast once, and it was good. It was DS's 3rd birthday, so he really got into it. I think it depends who you have in your room as for how energetic the group is. We were at 8:30 breakfast, so everyone was raring to go for the day!

I think you are right. Nothing worse than spending good money and good calories on a drink that has next to no alcohol. What's the point?
