Disney Hollywood Studios Restaurants

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a theme park that has undergone a lot of change of the years, but one thing has remained consistent: this is a great Disney park when it comes to finding unique and highly entertaining dining options.

Embracing “Old Hollywood,” the Hollywood Studios has some of the best themed restaurants in all of the four Disney parks, and it’s such a walkable park that it’s easy to get from one small counter service eatery on one side of the park to a sit down restaurant located on the park’s opposite end.

Dining at the Hollywood Studios

Below, I’ve listed all of the quick service and table service restaurants located at the Hollywood Studios.  In an effort to make things easier for you, I’m going to categorize all the restaurants by park area or location.  And we’re going to begin with the eating options located at Commissary Lane.

Commissary Lane

1) ABC Commissary (Counter Service): With Art Deco theming, this quick service eatery serves guests lunch and dinner throughout the day. The ABC Commissary also provides movie and TV posters that adorn its walls, as well as flat screen televisions that play movie trailers.

Menu options include everything from Asian salad with chicken to roasted salmon and New York strip steak. Kids can enjoy turkey sandwiches, too, as well as apple wedges and carrot sticks.

You can expect to spend $14.99 and under for each adult in your group (on average). Some dining plans are accepted here.

2) Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant (Table Service): Easily one of my favorite restaurants anywhere on Disney Grounds, the Sci-Fi Dine-In theater allows you and your party to sit in a booth that’s been built to resemble a classic convertible. Around you are other similar vehicles, and with the lighting low, guests gaze upon a massive screen that’s showing classic cartoons, movie clips, and trailers that date back to the 50s and 60s.

If you grew up with going to drive-in theaters, this restaurant will be a blast from the past. If you didn’t grow up going to drive-ins, this restaurant will give you a perfect glimpse into what you missed out on.

The food that you can enjoy here is about what you would expect at a drive-in—chicken wings, burgers, fries, milkshakes, ribs and more.

The average price per adult ranges from $15 to $29.99. Some dining plans are accepted here. This restaurant also accepts reservations.

Echo Lake:

1) 50’s Prime Time Café (Table Service): Some people will tell you that growing up, their mother or grandmother forced them to eat their vegetables before they could have dessert. Well, at the 50’s Prime Time Café, that old school mentality becomes a reality again. Except this time, it won’t be your mother that’s demanding you to eat your remaining broccoli or carrots on your plate—it’ll be your server!

At this highly unique and very cool restaurant, guests step back into the 1950s, as you sit in theming areas and at tables and booths that look straight outta “I Love Lucy.” From the vinyl chairs to the Formica table, the Prime Time Café even manages to sit a small TV set at your table so that you can enjoy your nostalgic entertainment while you eat.

Your server is what really makes the experience here, though. He or she will demand that you sit up straight, eat all your food, and practice proper manners while at the dinner table.

As for the menu, guests can expect to eat anything from pot roast to Grandma’s pot pie. Desserts include items like a brownie sundae or a warm apple crisp. In fact, the Prime Time Café is so old-school, they even have s’mores and root beer floats on the menu!

Reservations are accepted here. Pricing per adult ranges from $15 to $29.99. Some dining plans are available.

2) Backlot Express (Quick Service): Stop by the Backlot Express and grab a cheeseburger, hot dog, or Southwest chicken salad amongst other items.

Some dining plans are accepted here. Guests should expect to pay $14.99 and under for each adult in their party, on average.

3) Hollywood & Vine (Table Service): Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner in a buffet style restaurant, Hollywood & Vine is a great place to go to have the opportunity to get a little bit of everything.

With flexible pricing—prices are as low as $15 per adult all the way up to $59.99–you can enjoy dishes like pastries and biscuits and gravy in the morning, indulge in salads or pasta in the afternoon, and chow down on carved turkey breast or mustard salmon before the Fantasmic! show at night.

At this lounge—which really does feature TV’s playing shows from the fifties—guests can come and not only drink “Dad’s Electric Lemonade” or “Grandma’s Picnic Punch,” but those that are hungry have the opportunity to eat whatever is on the 50’s Prime Time Café menu.

No dining plans are accepted here. Adults can expect to pay $14.99 and under on average.

Hollywood Boulevard:

1) Dining with an Imagineer (Table Service): Have you ever wanted to sit down with one of the many creative minds that brings all of the Disney World magic to life? Have you ever wanted to pick their brain and ask him or her several questions?

Well, with “Dining with an Imagineer,” you can do just that. By selecting a date, as well as the amount of people in your party, you will be provided with a time (usually around noon) in which you can arrive at the Hollywood Brown Derby and enjoy a four-course meal in the restaurant’s Bamboo Room. Get all of your passionate questions answered and enjoy the company and knowledge of an Imagineer that makes all of the Hollywood Studios magic come to life.

Dining with an Imagineer costs approximately $64.99 per person.

2) The Hollywood Brown Derby (Table Service): Built to be an authentic replica of the real Brown Derby, this restaurant serves American cuisine with a unique theming and brown wood color palette that you won’t get anywhere else. The walls are decorated with caricatures of famous Hollywood stars too, just as the real Brown Derby walls were.

Also, do note that the Hollywood Brown Derby participates in the Fantasmic! dinner package.   For a set, pre-approved price ($56.99 for adults and $16.99 for children), you can purchase a standard dining package for lunch or dinner that includes one appetizer, one entrée, one dessert, one non-alcoholic beverage and one VIP voucher. The voucher will provide you with special, reserved seating at Fantasmic, so you don’t have to worry about standing in line for over an hour to acquire decent theater seating (you will still want to arrive about twenty to thirty minutes prior to your show time, however).

Reservations are accepted here and some dining plans are accepted, as well.

2) Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano (Table Service): This is another one of my favorite restaurants. While it’s not as incredible themed as the Sci-Fi Dine In, and it won’t charm your shirt off like the 50s Prime Time Café, Mama Melrose (tucked away in Streets of America and sandwiched in between the Muppet 3D show and the Lights, Motors, Action stunt show), is relatively cheap and offers up some good Italian food.

Whether you want a Margherita Flatbread or you’re in the mood for Spaghetti or Penne alla Vodka, Mama Melrose has you covered. Dessert options here include Tiramasu, Gelato, and Seasonal Panna Cotta.

Adults can expect to pay between $15 and $29.99 on average. Some dining plans are accepted and reservations are encouraged.
