Disney Does It Right

This was a great restaurant experience. The only drawback was being seated in a car that all tables face the screen vs. being seated in one of the cars where the chairs face each other. The kids loved it. They felt like they were really eating in a car at a drive-in. The food was amazing. I had the... read more

This was our second trip here. We love the concept but it just doesn't seem to work somehow. Food was okay, but not fantastic. Atmosphere was good but a little dark and the seating arrangements are tough when you have 3 kids and they all need some attention. Probably our last time eating here

All of the restaurants at Disney Studios had no reservations available. Our party of six decided to try without reservations at 6PM. We were told to expect a 40 minute wait but got seats in about 20. The food was good and the service was excellent. The experience was unique. You sit in what looks like cars at a 50's... More

Average food quality. We had the dining plan and ordered the $31.99 steak plate. I wouldn't want to pay that much out of pocket for what I got. The flavor of the meat was good but the vegetable medley was bland and a little watery. I had the cheesecake dessert as it was also included in the plan and was... More

The menu and food quality doesn't justify the prices, but the uniqueness of the atmosphere does. This is one of the most unique dining experiences you'll have. You're sitting in a "car" at a drive in movie theatre while dining. Lot of fun - kids love it. Milkshakes are very good.

This is the second time we visited and we were impressed yet again with the fun atmosphere, excellent service, and wonderful food. This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit and I will be back. The only draw back is this is not set up for visiting with people in your party as the atmosphere is quiet due to... More

This, like several other restaurants inside the Disney theme parks, is all about the experience and atmosphere, not the food. Come here expecting overpriced so-so food served with efficiency and friendliness in an atmosphere that will delight both kids and adults. Given that a lot of the places to eat inside the theme parks serve overpriced so-so food with efficiency... More

If you really want to eat here make reservations for sure. We had reservations but still waited 30 minutes. The theme was neat. You sit in booth shaped like cars. The lights are low just like a drive in theater. So it does make it harder to see what your doing especially when helping the younger kids. Food was decent... More

If you’re going to have a meal in Hollywood Studios, you can’t miss the Sci-fi dine-in. The theming alone is worth visiting, but the food is also much improved over a few years ago. We also found the service excellent. This is also a great spot to escape a very warm Florida day. Make sure you pre-plan and get a... More
