    We do both Hoop Dee Doo and Chef Mickey's each time we go. I hate the new menu change too so we are skipping it also. We aren't skipping Chef Mickey's. We have great memories from there- you just can't beat having the main mouse sit down at your table and give you kisses. You will enjoy it.

    You didn't mention if you were taking kids or not. Kids really love the atmosphere and adults have fun here too. I like CM just fine but for overall character experience and food quality I prefer The Garden Grill in Epcot. Just my opinion and not a vote against CM by any means. GG seemed to keep us entertained the whole time or it may be that we kept them entertained the whole time. It was a great time there! We really intermingled with the characters and staff there so well. We laughed and cut up all night. Chip and Dale kept us laughing. Did I mention that we were adults and teens eating at GG? Sorry for reminiscing but this may have been our best Character meal ever!

    Chef Mickey's is one of our favorites also. We usually do it for breakfast on our last day. It is our final farwell to Mickey. We let each of my children pick one thing at the parks each visit that we can not miss. My oldest son picks Chef Mickey's every year. We have pictures of him from 18mos to 12 years with Mickey at Chef Mickey's. Priceless!

    I don't know...is it just me? I'm thinking the descriptive in the preceding post was a bit over the top. Maybe I just need a nap.

    BigDan, did it ever occur to you that Mickey didn't see you. His vision in that getup is quite limited. That's one of the reasons he's always accompanied by a "handler" (another reason is unruly, unreasonable Guests).

    I went to Chef Mickey's for the FIRST time (well... since it's been in the Contemporary) and it was awesome!!!! We went for dinner, and let me tell you, the food was better than any other buffet in WDW! The prime rib was delicious as was the chicken! But the dessert buffet is where I was in complete heaven!!! All the characters were extremely friendly and I have at least 20 great photos from that evening! I also got to dance around the restaurant with Goofy!!! (How awesome is that!?!?!) Chef Mickey's made my vacation more magical and I'm so pleased we were able to get reservations there! I would highly recommend it!

    Oh yea, I'm unruly and unreasonable? The fact that I am a professional in the business world, who has probably spent 40 grand in trips going there, and who just happens to have a sense of humor... and since when is being mad at a costumed mouse and making a reference to taking a "restroom break" in the contemporary bathroom so offensive?

    If you are, as you say, "a professional in the business world," then you are aware that what is appropriate in one setting might not be appropriate in all settings. You have to know your audience.

    This "audience," visitors to a Disney-themed message board, don't come here for angry screeds about petty happenstances, and they don't come here for attempts at scatalogical humor.

    I enjoy rude, crude, disgusting humor, I just don't let my freak flag fly here, just like I don't indulge in that sort of fun within earshot of my kids. I just don't judge it to be the proper place for that.

    To get this thread back on topic... I think you will NOT be disappointed with your choice. I have been to both and while I do enjoy the show of the HDR, I think you will enjoy a change of menu and a change of scenery. It is nice to be inside the contemporary for the restaraunt and I love watching the monorail go by. If eveything pans out just right (timing wise) with the characters you should be out in time to see wishes. Be sure to try and get a photo with both Mickey and Minnie in the same shot while you are there. It makes for a great keepsake! Have a Blast!

    Since it got erased, overall I did enjoy Chef Mickeys, the food was really good and the atmosphere was really enjoyable, I'd do it again.
