I also didn’t see Starring Rills Cafe, I heard there are really good cupcakes there and we were planning to visit SR on our visit in September.

Esther Grenz

Hi Shannon,
Thanks for all your great info! I was excited to see that we can do Hollywood & Vine with the Fantasmic package all for 1 table credit, that surprised me! But when I go to the reservations on MyDisneyExperience, I don’t see anyway to specify that I want a package — it just looks like normal reservations. Any suggestions?

Giselle Devane

What is the seating arrangement at the Tune-in Lounge? Do you need to sit at the bar to be able to order(and eat) an entree from their menu? Or do they have tables? How easy/hard would it be to get a seat during dinner? Is it child friendly?

Also, just as an FYI, your High Octane link links to Casey’s Corner menu.

Cass

I’m trying to decide where to eat for lunch at Hollywood Studios. I will be there for one day and I’m not sure if this will be my only visit to WDW in my lifetime. I’m having an early dinner at the Sci-Fi Drive in. I’m deciding if I sure go to the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge or not. I’m slightly budget conscious (less than $35).

Kayla

What about the little coffee cart at the exit of Tower of Terror? Did I miss it on this list? It’s one of my favorite stops in the park!

Linda Reynolds

Oasis Canteen only has chicken nuggets now—no funnel cakes

Jody

We got the show package for Hollywood and Vine with a lunch reservation for our vacation in September so it apparently does not require a Dinner reservation. We did have to call the hotline to get it though.

Jennifer Johnston

Is Hollywood & Vine the only place to eat breakfast while at HS? Does the Trolley Car offer more than coffee drinks?

Are you able to make reservations at Quick Service restaurants, or only Table Service restaurants?

Thank you so much!

Becky

Hi Shannon- you’ve suggested paying out of pocket vs. using dining credits for Brown Derby. We have the Fantasmic Dinner Pkg. booked 12/11/15. Are we able to pay out of pocket if this is a Fantasmic Pkg deal? Your description in the package confuses me because we would probably not be eating an appetizer, entree & dessert if we were paying for that meal. Can we utilize the Pkg deal and possibly split 3-4 apps, entrees and desserts among 5 adults.

Stephanie C

Does anyone know if they will be adding Dinner at H&V for February? Currently only breakfast & lunch are options but I think my daughter would enjoy Minnie & Friends more! (plus then we aren’t butting up against nap time!

Kathy

Could someone pleases tell me what Mickey Check Meals are for children? Are they part of the dining plan? Thank you

Carrie

Mickey Check meals are part of the dining plan for children. They are meals that have been approved to be nutritious and well balanced. They are basically approved as healthy options. Basically like a weightwatchers logo, or a “this food is healthy” sticker on the items so parents aren’t feeding their kids junk all week, but I say, you can’t have vacation without a little bit of junk food…

Lindsey

If I book Hollywood and Vine at lunch could I get a character meal and the Fastasmic package if I want. We are going in April at a slower time so hoping I can get both.

Amy Bell

Do you know anything about the fantasmic package being offered at Hollywood and vine in January? I called to make reservations for it for a lunch there to get the package and the cast member said they didn’t have any options for that yet.. Wasn’t sure if they were doing something different? We are going the week of January 24th.

Kelsey

I am going February, 2016. Fantasmic took forever to be released. Finally was able to secure character dining for lunch at Hollywood and Vine with Fantasmic Package in. This reservation finally became available, if memory serves me correctly, around the last week of September, maybe first week in October. I had to call for reservations. I was never able to see available times online or on the Disney app.

Cindy

I also was not able to get the Fantasmic dinner package for the end of February

Sydney Fischer

I wanted to say uickly that i was very disappointed in the sci fi dine in resturant. The resturant did not have good food options

Julie

Totally agree. Service and food were both poor when we went.

Rachel

Hey Shannon! Your High Octane link actually links to Casey’s Corner Menu. Just wanted to let you know!
