Mickey's Backyard BBQ
Mickey's Backyard BBQ
What a fabulous evening we all had. Located in Orlando's Walt Disney World Resort. Mickey's Backyard BBQ is located in Disney's Fort Wilderness in The Outdoor Pavilion in a huge outdoor barn.
The grounds are extensive at Fort Wilderness and once through the gates it was a good 1 1/2 miles before you reach The Outdoor Pavillion. Buses run from the main entance though as no cars are allowed on the property. The event starts before the 6.30pm start time as Chip n' Dale were there to greet you and lots of children's games going on so would recommend getting there for 5.30pm - its a beautiful location so lovely to walk around and see the ponies. Doors open at 6.15pm and the BBQ is ready and waiting for you. Wine, beer and soft drinks are included in the price and you are able to help yourself to all the delights on offer.
The band and entertainment started at 6.30pm and there was a lot of charactor interaction much to the delight of the 5 and 7 year olds in our party. Goofy, Mickey and Minne along with Chip n Dale danced the night away with the young and not so young at heart! The country band was really good (albeit loud in my opinion), as was the cowboy doing impressive lasso tricks. The evening finished promptly at 8.30pm.
Its a self-service BBQ so you can go up as many times as you can manage and the food, especially the ribs, was good. On offer was:
Smoked BBQ Chicken, BBQ Pork Ribs, Steamed Hot Dogs and cheeseburgers with side dishes of Beans, Macaroni and Cheese, Corn on the Cob,Cole Slaw, Cornbread, Fresh Herb Potato Salad and Tossed Garden Salad. For dessert: Watermelon, Strawberry Bars and Ice Cream Bars (Mickey shaped).
As a family, along with our friends, we all thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The dance floor was filled from the moment everybody was enouraged up and not much encouragement was needed to join in the dancing with Mickey and the gang. Although priced at approx. $44 adult and $26 child we thought it was worth every cent.
Plenty of photo opportunites so don't forget your camera! I have plenty so just pop me an e:mail and I would be happy to send you some.
