Where to Eat at Hong Kong Disneyland

Chef Mickey is a relaxed eatery serving breakfast and dinner buffets daily in a playful, colourful environment.

The restaurant also opens at lunch on Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays.

Chinese dishes as well as dishes from around the world are prepared in an open-air show kitchen and displayed in a classic buffet layout.

MICE Showcase Media Tour

I was part of a MICE Showcase Media Tour, which was organized to familiarize journalists with the world-class facilities that Hong Kong Disneyland has to offer organizers of meetings, incentives, conferences, and events (MICE) as well as wedding planners.

Both the Hong Kong Disneyland theme park and the three Walt Disney Hotels located nearby were included in the tour.

Our group comprised journalists, food critics, and travel bloggers from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

We spent a total of three days and two nights at the Hong Kong Disney resort.

We had dinner at Chef Mickey on the first night of our media tour, following an exciting day at Hong Kong Disneyland, where we took in performances of The Lion King and Moana: a Homecoming Celebration and the We Lucky Mickey! projection show on Main Street U.S.A.

There were stations for salads and soups as well as for hot and cold dishes.

Western grilled meats and seafood, European baked goods, Chinese barbecues, Cantonese dim sum, Indian curries, Italian pizzas from wood-fired ovens, Japanese sushi, and other national cuisines were also on display.

There were stations for desserts, petite fours, and  ice cream.

There was a special “all you can drink” beer promotion, with a choice of three beers.

The Ambiance

The dining room’s design was inspired by Hollywood’s Golden Age, with lots of chrome and plenty of playful Art Deco touches.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy looking for the Hidden Mickeys, which are hidden in murals and mosaics throughout the eatery

Chef Mickey greets diners every morning at breakfast and on Sundays and public holidays at lunch.

Chef Mickey also makes appearances at dinner on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays, and evening before public holidays.

Signed chef’s hats are sometimes given to kids during Character Dining at lunch or dinner.

The Verdict

I dined at Chef Mickey at a dinner with an entourage of about 15 people, and it was a very nice environment for a large group.

The surrounding were well lit, spacious, and whimsical. Because it was a week night, it was not crowded.

There was a good selection of dishes from the four corners of the earth. I particularly liked the yummy Thai salads and the free flow of beer.

The Hours …

The restaurant is open from 7.30 am to 11.00 am for breakfast and 5.30 pm to 10.00 pm for dinner. It is open 12 noon to 2.30 pm on Saturday, Sunday, and holidays.

Always double check hours before heading to the restaurant.

Chef Mickey is one of three food and beverage outlets at Disney’s Hollywood Hotel. The other two restaurants include …

  • Studio Lounge – serving Asian and Western style comfort food, Studio Lounge has a stylish Art Deco ambiance reminiscent of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
  • Hollywood and Dine – a quick service restaurant, Hollywood and Dine (whose name plays on the legendary intersection of Hollywood and Vine) serves Asian and Western favourites.
