Earning My Ears
- May 19, 2018
This is my experience at Chef Mickey's. My wife loves it so it is our first stop every time we go. I don't like it.Another thing to keep in mind, strange as this may sound, is that a lot of people love certain Disney restaurants despite them having mediocre food at best. They go for the experience. Character meals are a great example of this. People freely admit that the food isn't good but their kids love meeting the characters so they go there every trip, and that's perfectly fine. As long as you know what you're getting yourself into and you're happy with that, go and have a good time. It's a shame that Disney can't do better but it is what it is.
We weren't impressed with dinner at BOG but I am 100% happy that we went as I loved going inside and seeing the place which is beautiful. I wouldn't go again (though that was with the old menu so maybe I would) but I would never tell others not to go at least once.
The food isn't bad. Much of it is rock solid but none of it makes sense. Salmon next to mac and cheese next to yams? That doesn't make sense at all, even though all three are excellent. It is sort of manic. That does sort of match the ambiance. Huge families, lots of kids, characters strolling in and out while people wave towels or napkins or whatever.
I swear Chef Mickey's has all of the best dishes they couldn't find a place for on any other restaurant menu. It's all so random.
