When Walt Disney World Resort reopened to the public, things looked a lot different. A number of those changes aren’t just taking place within the theme parks, but also within the restaurants. We reported that Topolino’s Terrace at Disney’s Riviera Resort have hosted several changes in regards to both the overall experience with characters as well as changes to its menu.

We also reported Garden Grill in EPCOT would bring modified character dining to its restaurant and Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom would reopen with modifications as well.

And most recently, for 2020, Minnie’s Halloween Dine has returned with modifications as well including no longer having a buffet of food and instead, is served family style and brought to your table. There also won’t be an opportunity to hug your favorite characters, though, Guests are more than welcome to snap a photo from a safe social distance.

But for all of those who are still missing character dining experiences — You’re in luck because Disney just announced they will be bringing back another character dining experience to Disney World.

Chef Mickey’s, located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, has been opened for dining except there were no special appearances from our Disney friends, however, Disney Parks Blog just announced that Mickey and the gang will be returning to breakfast at Chef Mickey’s beginning in December!

Disney Parks Blog announced:

Mickey Mouse and his best pals are returning to breakfast at Chef Mickey’s restaurant in Disney’s Contemporary Resort on December 16, bringing some new items to the menu inspired by their favorite dishes. 

Along with traditional breakfast favorites, you will be able to try the new Mickey’s “Celebration” Pancake, featuring whipped cream, celebration sprinkles, shimmering pixie dust and more. 

For something a bit more savory, we’re adding a new “Loaded” Potato-Cheese Casserole topped with smoked bacon crumbles and chives.

Last but not least, Goofy’s Banana Bread French Toast will combine unique flavors of banana bread baked in zesty orange-scented French toast batter, topped with Espresso-mascarpone cream, toasted bananas and chocolate crumbles.

If you can’t decide on which new item to try, you’ll be able to taste all three as part of an all-you-care-to-eat family style feast with other traditional breakfast favorites. 

When Mickey and friends return, the experience may look a little different than the last time you visited, but you can still expect to smile, wave and make unforgettable memories with some of your favorite characters as they parade through the restaurant in their chef’s best.

Reservations for Chef Mickey’s character breakfast will open on October 17, based on availability. In addition, Disney Resort hotel guests can make reservations up to 60 days in advance plus the length of their stay (up to 10 days). For more information, please click here.
