So I was talking to my husband and he thinks we shouldn't be doing chef mickeys he just cant seem to justify spending almost $100 to eat breakfast. We aren't on the dining plan...I am assuming that would be how much it costs since the site said prices are $15-35. I just don't know how to talk him onto it or is it just something that isn't a must????
We enjoy it , a buffet is a buffet but still was a fun time , and lets be honest we all have seen kids and adults do gross things at disney lol, and that's just the things we have seen , I won't even touch the rails :) - tracsant  882.0 #2 8:41PM
I don't think it's a must do because the food is not that great and all the character there can be seen at the character spot. - 5disneylovers  721.7 #6 6:26PM
It's not a must do , especially since your not on the dining plan !!! Characters can be seen elsewhere !!! I would bypass it !!! - skcanfield  464.1 #12 9:06PM
Ohana has a really fun character breakfast. The food is good & the characters are fun(Mickey, Pluto, Lilo, Stitch). The food is served family style. - perdita  70.7 #73 11:04PM
Oh no, I am a germ freak too, guess I am canceling that reservation..ick - DisneyVicki  23.6 #136 12:22AM
We eat breakfast there almost every trip. We love it!! I've never seen anything gross. The food is good but we mostly go for the characters. We do the Dp, idk if we would still go if it was out of pocket. - Schramke  402.9 #15 12:34AM
That's a tough one... we try to always work this one in, or simiilar character dining favs, but only because we usually do the dining plans. We did it once without a dining plan and it was ~100 bucks for 3 of us (that was in '05). Like 5DL said, you can see all the characters in the parks, so it isn't a must, really... unless you just want to do a character dining. - mrsincredible  735.5 #5 6:30PM
If you want to do a character dinning the garden grill has an excellent one with Mickey, Pluto , chip and dale and they bring the food to the table or holly wood and vine with jake, and a few other characters and I think tuskars has one also but I don't know who is there - mmddgp  356.0 #18 6:50PM
Garden grill is nice because it is served to you. But expensive. I personally love the character spot at epcot you see everyone in one spot it was great. For the money i feel so rushed eating then quick get uptoget a picture then shove more food in then quickbget a picture now food is cold and i have indigestion - Bakerjars  236.7 #28 8:16PM
Character dining is fun but your meal does get frequently interrupted. We did chef mickey's last time and were not impressed. The food seemed old. We really enjoyed tusker house. The characters were in safari clothes (very cute). We made a reservation around 111am so we started with breakfast and ended with lunch! Plus we got a fast pass to the safari before we ate and it was time to ride as soon as we were done. It worked out great. - Disneyaddict  273.0 #967 8:25PM
My family enjoys chef mickeys. We have always gone on the ddp, so I can imagine your hubby being picky. If u haven't done chef mickeys yet u def should. Good food, tons of choices for everyone, and character time ! - Staceymouse  11.1 #214 8:31PM
Thank you all for your input. Since we are not on the dp we are going to skip it. my hubby won this round lol! - ccmom  183.7 #38 11:21PM
I still haven't canceled I am going to wait until we get there.....maybe he will change his mind. Although as of right now he thinks I should cancel. Its such a tough decision for me since my son desperately wants to do it. I am almost to the point of taking my son by myself and since little miss is 1 she won't know what she missed. That way he can still have the experience. - ccmom  183.7 #38 9:45AM
