Chef Mickey’s Opens for Brunch Starting May 31 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Reservations open May 22 for what promises to be a popular new addition to Walt Disney World Resort dining – mid-day brunch daily at Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.


The popular restaurant, with the Monorail breezing by overhead, has been open for breakfast and dinner, and is one of the very best spots for an audience with Chef Mickey and his pals, who make a stop at each table during dining service.

For brunch, the menu of breakfast favorites expands with soup; salads including Caesar; seafood, fresh broccoli, antipasto, chicken and Caprese, and hot dishes such as barbecued ribs, seafood étouffée and baked salmon. (And, yes, the famous Mickey waffles are on the brunch menu.) The ice cream bar and Contemporary bakery sweets also will be part of the expansive buffet.

Hours for brunch are 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. (Breakfast is still 7-11:30 a.m. and dinner 5-9:30 p.m.) Meals are one table-service entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan. For reservations, visit or call 407-WDW-DINE.


  • what are the prices for Brunch?

  • There is no “brunch” menu on the Chef Mickey’s site for viewing. Are all of the breakfast items still available and they are basically adding some “lunch” items to choose from as well? Or do some of the breakfast items go away during brunch?

  • It is going to be a character meal as well? Ideas on price?

    • Yes, Brunch will feature character dining. Pricing will be the same as Breakfast.

  • What will be the prices per adult and per child?

  • How will it work if you have a late breakfast reservation but are not ready to leave by 11:30am? Are you able to have the brunch items?

  • For those asking how many table service credits it will take for brunch..the article above says meals will be ONE table service entitlement on the dining plan.

    And for those asking hours for brunch, the article also lists the brunch hours as 11:30am to 2:30pm 🙂

  • Breakfast is 1 credit. Lunch is 1 credit. Brunch is a combination of Breakfast and Lunch. Therefore Brunch is 2 credits!

    It’s Scrooge McDuck math!

  • Why would it be anything other that one TS credit on the DDP? It’s not a show and it’s not a signature meal — and both dinner and breakfast are one credit each.

  • Are you sure brunch will be 1 credit on the DDP?

    • Yes, Brunch will be one table-service entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan.

  • How early will it be possible to make reservation on may 22th? 6 am?

  • Any idea what the hours will be?

    • Hours for brunch are 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

  • Great news! We’ve done the breakfast at Chef Mickey’s twice with our extended family (eight adults and four kids), and it was a complete delight both times. But those eeeeearly seatings can be tough on the grownups. We’ll definitely be candidates for mid-day character dining!
