I've eaten at Chef Mickey's twice in the last several years. Once with our Godson, Flynn, back in 2009, and just a couple of months ago with our friends Kandi and John and their kids Jazzlyn and Grayson.

I'm going to just come out and say it. It's my least favorite buffet in Walt Disney World.
It's not bad, but I have some issues.
None of our Minnie Pics came out well!
They come around often and spend quality time with each table. Periodically, there is even an opportunity for kids and adults to cut loose with the characters!
The not so great?
The layout of the restaurant, which is located in the Contemporary Resort, is just odd.
Somehow, both times we've eaten here, we have been put up in an upper corner. This past time, it was a very dark corner.
There really shouldn't be any dark corners in a character buffet, in my opinion.
Then, there is the food. It's not bad, I just don't feel it's on par with other Disney buffets, with the exception of the desserts.
There are a variety of salads and a soup du jour, as well as sushi and pick and peel shrimp.
There is Mac and Cheese, Chicken nuggets, pasta and meatballs.
Some of the better items were the small individual dishes, such as the Braised Beef. The Lemon Pepper Chicken was pretty good also.
There are a few other seafood selections as well as BBQ ribs.
The carving station included turkey and beef.
The desserts include a variety of cakes, cream puffs, and cookies, as well as ice cream.
