Chef Mickeys is like eating at the Golden Corral but with characters plus it is always crazy crowded and supper loud! We prefer Garden Grill for our meal with Mickey food is ok but character interaction is amazing and has never been crazy crowded or loud!

My family has eaten at CM several times. Every time I swear we won't be back. Dinner is the worst. Food is cold, food area is messy, and slow to replace empty food choices. The only way I would return is with free dinning and that would be for breakfast. If I had to pay for it we would never go back. I also feel this way about Crystal Palace. The place has become dirty, food is horrible, and poor service. I think Disney is slacking off in the food area. They think because you are there you will eat whatever they serve and pay the ridiculous food prices. Only in Disney would anyone tolerate this.

I have done quite a few character meals and Chef Mickeys was my least fav (either meal...I have done both). Food is always sub-par, stations are messy, service is soooo slllooooowww. I love Tusker, Crystal Palace and even Hollywood and Vine. We are trying Cape May this time around because my son wants to see Goofy and I won't go back to CM.

Though we have had good meals at Chef Mickey's, we much prefer Crystal Palace breakfast. Excellent service and character interaction!

Amen Sister! I'm not preaching to the choir here! But I may still be a little crazy and I'm fine with that. They laugh at me because I cover my plate with my napkin when they start swirling them on cruise ships too.
