Are you looking for something fun and different on your Walt Disney World vacation? Mickey’s Backyard BBQ is your answer! This Disney dining event is held seasonally at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, just a quick boat or bus ride away from the Magic Kingdom.
The all-you-care-to enjoy dinner and show is offered on Thursdays and Saturdays from March through December. The pavilion is an open-air facility that gives the feel of a real cookout with a fabulous, toe-tappin’ country-western band.
A variety of picnic favorites are offered family-style such as hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken and ribs. Side dishes include corn on the cob, cowboy beans, macaroni salad, tossed salad, potato salad and coleslaw. Watermelon and ice cream are also included. Drinks include lemonade, iced tea, fruit punch, beer and wine.
Guests of all ages can dance along at the hoedown with their favorite Disney characters such as:
- Mickey Mouse
- Minnie Mouse
- Chip ‘n Dale
This is a great opportunity for interaction with the characters without having to wait in a long line. The characters will mingle with guests and pose for photos and autographs too. There will be line dancing, rope tricks and more in a laid back atmosphere filled with tons of fun!
Advance reservations are highly recommended and can be made 180 days in advance. If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, this will take two of your dining credits. Come along and enjoy the food, entertainment and fun atmosphere at Mickey’s Backyard BBQ. You’re in for a real Disney dining treat!
