What is Mickey’s Backyard BBQ?
Mickey’s Backyard BBQ is a buffet dinner at Fort Wilderness Resort. It’s an open-air venue with live music performances, dancing and character meet-and-greets. Many of the characters at this venue are typically exclusive to this venue. During some holidays, the characters will wear special outfits. If possible, book Category 1 as those attendees get an additional meet-and-greet session before the dinner. To learn more about Mickey’s Backyard BBQ or to book reservations, click here.

Our first visit to Mickey’s Backyard BBQ was a huge success. We met Cowboy Goofy and the Picnic Chipmunks before we were seated for dinner. After eating dinner, we went immediately outside the venue to meet Cowboy Micky and Cowgirl Minnie.
