Due to kitchen maintenance and to our ensure Guests have a seamless dining experience, the all-you-care-to-eat buffet with Chef Mickey and friends will be temporarily relocating to the convention center at Disney’s Contemporary Resort from late November through December 2017 (the restaurant is expected to reopen in mid-December). The buffet offerings, characters, and Disney PhotoPass experience will be exactly the same in the temporary location.
Here's the letter Guests will receive if they happen to be staying at the Contemporary Resort during the refurbishment:
