Hollywood Studios

😉 Kid Friendly The two best places to dine in Hollywood for the kiddies are the 50’s Prime Time Cafe, and the Sci-Fi Dine In Dinner, which is great if your kids are into old Sci-Fi movie clips and enjoy dining at a table shaped like an old vintage car.  The 50’s Prime Time Cafe offers a unique experience where the wait staff play ‘brother’ and ‘sister’ to diners while ‘mom’ cooks in the kitchen.  Kids get a kick out of it because mom and dad get chastised in a funny and fairly frequent manner for various infractions.

😯 Adult Friendly Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano is a good choice to dine with your hubby.  You can also try out Hollywood Brown Derby for some delicious eats!  (Don’t forget desert!)

Snacks-  Snacks abound in Hollywood.  Try Hollywood Scoops for some hand dipped ice cream, or try Toluca Legs for turkey legs and hot dogs.  Min and Bill’s Dockside Diner offers stuffed pretzels and milkshakes or you can try the ABC Commissary for a multi-ethnic blend of options.

Again, all of these are just some ideas of places to dine within each park, there are several other restaurants with great cuisine both inside the parks and outside, as well in the surrounding areas.  Check out Walt Disney World Dining for in-depth information and sample menus.
