Mickey’s Backyard BBQ Serving up Fun Four Days per Week at Walt Disney World Resort

Howdy, partners! You may know that Mickey, Minnie and friends kick up their heels with guests at Mickey’s Backyard BBQ at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. But did you know for the rest of the season, they’ll be serving up fun four days a week? Additional dates have been added; in addition to Thursday and Saturday’s, you can now book Tuesday and Friday, too!


This all-you-care-to-enjoy picnic features finger-licking BBQ favorites like barbecued ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh corn on the cob, macaroni and cheese and new dishes like jambalaya, honey-mustard baked chicken and a selection of salads and kid-friendly veggies. If dancing up a storm makes you thirsty, quench it with a large selection of ice-cold sodas and soft drinks. Adults can enjoy Bud Light and Yuengling draft beers, Chardonnay, Merlot, White Zinfandel and Red Sangria included with dinner. For dessert, look for a new warm fruit cobbler or strawberry shortcake (when it’s in season) in addition to the popular Mickey-shaped ice-cream bars and other frozen treats.


Dance the night away with a live country-western band and character appearances throughout the night. The character meet and greet area has also been enhanced to allow for more time with your favorite characters for photos and autographs.

For added convenience, a new bus route is now in operation, which takes guests directly back to Magic Kingdom Park, where transport to any Disney Resort is readily available.

For reservations, visit, or call 407-WDW-DINE.


  • If you are at a park and want to head out to this event does a bus take you? Or do you have to drive?

    • Disney Transportation is available to take you to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort from any of the parks. If you are at Magic Kingdom park, you can take a boat that will take you directly to the Settlement Depot.

  • Went to the Backyard BBQ the first night of a family trip. It was so much fun. The kids loved dancing. the food was good for them, the adults like the drinks. It was fun being so close to the characters. All 12 of us had fun and it was a great start to the vacation.

    • It’s a rootin’ tootin’ good time!
