ALERT: Chef Mickey’s Just Got MORE Expensive in Disney World

If you’ve already thought out your dining plans for your next Walt Disney World vacation, you’re going to want to read this!

Calories don’t count at Disney World

Walt Disney World has seen some staggering price changes since 2022 especially in character dining, however, this popular dining location is now seeing its second increase within the past year.

Chef Mickey’s is a popular dining location for many guests coming to Walt Disney World. Not only is it a great place to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy,  but it’s located within Disney’s Contemporary Resort right next door to the Magic Kingdom. Guests opt to dine here because the food has returned to a buffet-style meal, it’s a convenient Monorail trip or walk from the Magic Kingdom, and it gives them an opportunity to sit down at a meal without feeling like they’re missing out on meeting with characters.

Chef Mickey’s

However, we recently reported changes to Chef Mickey’s menu as late as October of 2022. While most items had minimal markups, we understand that can be challenging to budget for, especially for guests with multiple members dining together– like families. Now, Chef Mickey’s has undergone another price increase, and we need to discuss it!

Buffet is BACK at Chef Mickey’s!


First, let’s look at breakfast pricing.

Breakfast Buffet

As of our last report, prices for Chef Mickey’s breakfast were set at $45 for adults and $29 for children ages 3-9 ( taxes and gratuity are not included in this pricing).

Mickey Waffles, yes please!

As of today, the current pricing for breakfast will cost you $51 for adults and $33 for children, again without taxes and gratuity included.

Breakfast wasn’t the only meal that has seen an increase in price.


Just a few months ago, we reported that the current dinner pricing at Chef Mickey’s was $60 per adult and $38 per child (without taxes and gratuity included).

  1. Just had breakfast at Chef Mickey’s and it was great. Only weird thing (to me) is that Mickey doesn’t actually visit your table like the other characters and you queue up to meet him after breakfast. Then you have to pay more via photo pass for those photos with Mickey. What???!! Shouldn’t a photo with Mickey at Chef Mickey’s be included in the hefty price tag? Disney is really milking it with this IMO.

  2. We were just at the restaurant. The family style meal and service were excellent! And the small kids with us were over the moon to see the characters!
    However the price of this was way too expensive for what you got to eat- especially for the kids who only eat Mac and cheese. And for that price they could have included about 4 more characters!
    I personally did not budget for increases and the gratuity of 18% is mentioned at the time you arrive, but a little bit of a shocker!!
    I reserved for kids once, but would probably not do it again!
