Mickey’s Backyard BBQ at Walt Disney World Rumored to Close

We are hearing various reports online that it is very possible that Mickey’s Backyard BBQ could be closing permanently.  Currently there are only dates offered for the event through December 31st, 2018, so that is suspected to be the last date that the dining experience will be offered.  Mickey’s Backyard BBQ is only offered seasonally, so it is possible that the next offered dates just haven’t been loaded yet.  We haven’t heard any official confirmations from Disney as to whether or not the closing is legitimate or not.

There are several rumors about what could be replacing the event at the location, one of which is that the closure is related to the work that is taking place in the old River Country area.

If you love Mickey’s Backyard BBQ we definitely recommend that you reserve your spot for one of the events before it is gone forever, just in case.  You have to pay for the full cost of the reservation at the time that the reservation is made.  The event features an “all you care to enjoy” style meal plus characters, fun music, dancing and more. It really is fun for the whole family.  As always, we will keep you posted as we learn more about the potential closing.

What do you all think about the possibility of Mickey’s Backyard BBQ closing?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
