Awesome Places to Dine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Part 2
50’s Prime Time Café
Another restaurant that allows you to go back in time to yesteryear, The 50’s Prime Time Cafe serves up American comfort food just like Mom used to make. The 1950s-themed eatery is appropriately centered around “Mom’s Kitchen”—think Formica tables and vinyl chairs—and offers hearty, savory favorites like chicken pot pie and meatloaf. But like many Hollywood Studios restaurants, park-goers also come for the interactive fun and entertainment. “Mom” herself may just drop by during your meal—so be sure to keep those elbows off the table and mind your manners—and the old-fashioned television sets throughout the restaurant show black-and-white clips from popular 1950s shows. I have been here before Christmas and lots of vintage Christmas trees are up all over the restaurant! Very cool! The meatloaf and pot roast are just like mom used to make. Try it at least once!
Hollywood & Vine
If you’re spending the day at Hollywood Studios, this is the place to fill up before Fantasmic and get your fair share of character interaction time. A casual all-you-can-eat buffet, Hollywood & Vine is the only character dining opportunity at Hollywood Studios, so be sure to come hungry…and bring your camera! During the day, kids are invited to meet and greet their favorite Disney Junior pals like Sofia the First, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Doc McStuffins, and Handy Manny for breakfast and lunch. But the most exciting dining news to come out of Hollywood Studios as of late revolves around dinner, since the restaurant recently began hosting seasonal themed dinner parties. Depending upon the time of year for your visit, a dinner reservation will grant you a sumptuous seasonal buffet meal and festive music and decor so that you can celebrate holidays like Halloween and Christmas with Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy—and, yes, they will be decked out in themed costumes.
Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater
Many Walt Disney World guests may be a tad too young to remember the days of drive-in movie theaters, but the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater gives everyone the chance to watch a movie from the comfort of a car-shaped booth. You’ll walk into what appears to be an outdoor theater under the stars with a big screen showing 1950s and 1960s science-fiction clips and vintage commercials, and your carhop will deliver your meal from a menu that ranges from sandwiches to ribs. Frequent visitors know that the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is home to some of Walt Disney World’s most mouth-watering milkshakes, and both parents and kids alike can appreciate the restaurant’s kitschy memorabilia and old-fashioned, drive-in-style concession stand. Its funny that we thought those movies were so scary when we were kids!! So funny now! My family and I dine here on every Disney visit. It has become a tradition! The meals here are all American — I have not had anything that I didn’t like here. The burgers and shakes are all yummy. A good time and lots of nice memories from over the years!
