“Great place to eat in a fun setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Mama Melrose's is located in Disney's Hollywood Studios. We have special dietary issues and they were very attentive to those and took special care with our food. The atmosphere is noisy, but pleasant and the food is delicious. Their minestrone soup is scrumptious! It is one of our favorite Disney places to eat. You need to make reservations ahead.

“We loved everything about it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had the pleasure of dining here during our last visit to The World. Our server, Daniel, was extremely pleasant and attentive and took very good care of us. We started with the most delicious mussels EVER, with warm rolls to dip in the silky tomato butter sauce - unbelievable! Then, hubby had the chicken parm, and I had the whole wheat fettuccini with sautéed veggies - both excellent! We took our desserts to go because we were so full, and they were both worth the wait. The yummy chocolate cheesecake and cannoli cake were the perfect ending to a very nice day at the Studios. Add to this the warm, romantic atmosphere, and you have a keeper. We will definitely be back!

“Best Restaurant at Hollywood Studios in Orlando”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

We recently visited Disney World (Sept. 18-24, 2013) and ate at Mama Melrose's located in Hollywood Studios. The food and service were excellent! It was part of our Meal Plan, so we had made reservations. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount and quality of the dinner. The server was attentive and met all our expectations.
The best thing about this restaurant is the Fantasmic package which can be purchased through your travel agent before your departure. You are given a voucher which allows you to see the Fantasmic show in great seats. Your party arrives about 30 minutes before the show, and a middle section is reserved. No waiting for a great seat to this show!
