I really enjoyed Kevin's review of Chef Mickeys and thought it was right on point. Yes it's chaotic and noisy and the food is decent but nothing that you couldn't get anywhere else. But, darn it, it's a chance to meet the big cheese himself, watch the monorail overhead and just completely immerse yourself in the joy of watching kids meet their favorite characters. Loved your comment about trying to get kids to eat. Once my DS saw Donald, it was all over! I also noticed the same thing that you did . . . many of the servers appeared to be older than the typical server and seemed to have great patience and enthusiasm when dealing with the families there. Our server, Robert, was wonderful, telling our son things like "I just saw Mickey come out of the kitchen. He'll be here to see you soon, get your autograph book ready!" It made for a great experience. So, for fine dining, we'll head over to Jiko, but Chef Mickey's can't be beat for the Disney character experience.
