Chef Mickey's temporary relocation to the convention center is back on for the end of the year

Glad to hear, that is the right thing to do.

I actually had canceled. I went online over the past few days looking for reservations, but there was nothing any of the days we were there (July 29-Aug 6). The email they sent (that I attached in a post above) indicating that the maintenance had been canceled and that Chef Mickey's would be back in the main area included a phone number to call if you needed help booking reservations. Called that number and a very nice woman was able to offer a variety of reservations for Chef Mickeys at similar times and on similar days to what we had canceled and was super helpful in making sure it didn't interfere with any of our other plans. Long story short, seems they are holding onto some reservations (and not making them available through MDE) so if you did cancel and you want back in, call the number!

We went last year for the first time since I was little. It was still great. I was pleasantly surprised!

OR You could go over to the poly and have breakfast where John Lennon signed the paperwork ending the Beatles.

Huh. I wonder if they decided they could do the required maintenance after hours.

Giant mouse infestation.

I know things happen, but dang I'd be disappointed if I had cancelled the ADR when I got notice of this.

Did they ever say why they scheduled the maintenance out of nowhere? That's great that they canceled it. It is a great place to take the kids!

We got our email yesterday about this!! I'm so glad we didn't cancel. :)

So, was the maintenance moved or we're they able to find a way to do it during off hours?
