My Top Places To Eat In Disney's Hollywood Studios

This week we get to list our favorite places to eat in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

However, before we get to that task I do want to comment on last weeks blog. I was not surprised to see that eating in the Animal Kingdom was not something a lot of folks like to do. Tusker House and Yak and Yeti were the two full service restaurants mentioned the most. The top choices for counter service locations wasn't so clear cut. Lots of different choices and opinions. As I mentioned before the Animal Kingdom isn't a great park to eat in.

OK, on to Disney's Hollywood Studios. My second favorite park to eat in, after Epcot, is Disney's Hollywood Studios. I like the variety and theming of the full service restaurants. In addition, the counter service locations are large and really good. Also, there seems to be more kiosks selling drinks, ice cream, popcorn, etc. in Hollywood Studios than in any of the other parks. I like that!

So, here's my list:

Disney's Hollywood Studios

1) Brown Derby
2) Mama Melrose
3) 50's Prime Time Cafe

Counter Service Locations:

1) Backlot Express
2) ABC Commissary
3) Min and Bill's Dockside Diner

OK, now that I have told you my top three, what's yours? I'd love to know. Also, you can add whatever comments you want to help us appreciate your choices.

Speaking of comments, here's some of my thoughts. The food in the Brown Derby restaurant is outstanding! Admittedly the restaurant is a bit pricey, but it's a great place to celebrate a special occasion or to just treat yourself to a wonderful meal. Both Mama Melrose and 50's Prime Time are fun places to eat because, besides good service and good food, they are wonderfully themed. I am not a fan of Sci-Fi Dine-In at all. I don't like the seating arrangements and the food is just so, so. As I mentioned before I really do like the counter service and kiosk options in Hollywood Studios. Both Backlot Express and ABC Commissary are great places to stop and grab something quick to eat. Usually you get very quick service and you're able to find a table to sit and eat your meal. Here's a little tip; when I know I'm going to eat at a counter service location, I change the time I usually eat meals to avoid the lunch and dinner rush. If you can wait to eat lunch after 1 PM say or dinner after 6 PM, then the locations are usually less crowded.

Your comments:
50's Prime time is a must every trip - the other two we haven't been for a couple of years. We love Michael the sarcastic server because he is hilarious! He tells the kids the greens are disgusting and there is no way he would make anyone eat them. We also love the entertainment in the bar while you're waiting - the construction guys with their lunch boxes. We haven't tried Mama Melrose or Brown Derby but eventually we will because they sound really good.
The vegetarian sandwich at Backlot Express is excellent and the Writer's Stop is a hidden gem for a good cup of tea and a treat - it's a must for us every trip.

Your comments: My DS13 & I have had several good meals with memorial events at 50's Prime Time. Our visits to Mama Melrose have ranged from "very good" to "just average". Had not tried any other TS resturant at DHS. I really like the shaded outdoor dining at Backlot Express and there is good air conditioning at ABC Commissary (if needed). Not a fan of Pizza Planet. We did not care for the pizza and it was way too crowded & noisy.

Your comments:
Mama Melrose has been a favorite since we wandered into the restaurant purely by luck and smell many, many years ago. This was way before the Dining Plan and when walking up to a restaurant still resulted in getting a seat. The food has never disappointed on subsequent trips over the years since that first. Otherwise, the 50's Prime Time Cafe was a blast and the food was fine, but nothing to write home about. We've always wanted to try the Brown Derby, but can't justify the price. As for Sci-Fi, we've done it, but don't see any need to ever go back.

Many people might flinch at my putting Toy Story Pizza Planet first for quick service, but we have always gotten a quick, satisfying meal there. The pizza and salad meal is more than enough, and isn't the best pizza I've ever had, but it's still good.

Your comments: Sorry I can't agree with the ABC Commissary. We had one of our worst meals at that location. Though I could pass on Sci-Fi, my kids love the place. The Brown Derby has been one of our favorites for years. On our last visit, we had "Lunch With An Imagineer" at this location. What fun! Toluca Turkey and Rosie's get a thumbs up as we always purchase food to carry up the hill to the Fantasmic show! Love the turkey legs!

My comments:

* Hollywood and Vine was our absolute favorite when it had Mickey and Pals. We loved the retro costumes and dancing. It was always a first choice stop in our vacations. Now, it is only ok / pretty good -- hope someday they return it to its former glory. (Soundstage Restaurant was fun, too.)

We do lots of snacking at this park -- many good carts and baked goods available.

Toy Story Pizza Planet is first for quick service because my children always request it. We end up there pretty much every day we do the Studios. The pizza and cookies are good enough for a snack. Backlot Express is probably the overall favorite, though. (We just go in less often.) The Commissary
was a favorite before Kikkoman became the focus, now its just ok for our group.

The only other TS we've tried at DHS is Sci Fi & we just didn't like it. 50's Prime Time was our middle daughter's top choice last year. Our server was great; the food was good. We all loved it & have decided it will be a must-do every trip. While waiting for our reservation, the hostess complimented us for waiting patiently, using our manners (as there was another family there that was being mouthy & rude about having to wait for their table). She was chatting, asking where we were from & then asked if I had a camera. She took a photo of our family standing in the "kitchen". So many friends/family have asked us whose out-dated kitchen we were standing in for that photo! :)

I haven't tried many places in the Studios but there's a reason I haven't ventured away from the 4 places I've listed - they're all great. For full-service Prime time is just plain fun and Mama Melrose's is a good deal and an easy ADR or walk-up.

I love Backlot Express for its ample shaded seating area, yummy burgers and wraps, and free fountain soda refills. The free refills alone are enough to keep me coming back here and suggesting it to friends as a good counter service value at the studios. Starring Rolls has consistent high-quality treats and sandwiches.

My comments:
Sci-Fi Dine in is the only full service restaurant my family has tried at DHS, and we love it. It is now a family tradtion since our first trip when my youngest son got a "ticket" while driving and was asked to pay. I still have his "ticket" which he has never paid. I agree the food is so-so, but with a family a 5 we can all sit together in 1 car and watch the old movies on the big screen and we all turn to my mother aka Grannie and ask her "what's that movie about?"

Your comments: We always struggle for time at DHS and find it hard to fit in a full service meal. We did try Sci-Fi Diner at Chrismas and it was horrible. The food was just not nice and we all left feeling very disappointed as we had all been looking forward to it for so long (10 of us ranging from 22 months to 71 years). Love Writers Stop - coffee and a treat on comfy sofas watching Disney movies - can't get much better than this! Love the posts.

Your comments:we've only tried the 2 full service places I listed above. Keep meaning to try Mama Melrose's, but haven't got there yet. I've sworn off Pizza Planet. It once took me an HOUR to get a cheese pizza b/c their computers were down. I know it may have been a one time only occurrence, but it left me with bad memories of this place. Never again!

Your comments: We really enjoy 50's Prime Time for lunch, so much so it's a must-do now for us. We tried Mama Melrose with the Fantasmic package and thought that was a great value as well. We've only done Pizza Planet as counter service here but looks like we'll be trying the Backlot Express next month since a lot of people seem to recommend it there!

Your comments: My partner and I love the Studios and enjoy eating there. One of our favorite places to eat in WDW is 50's Prime Time. The food is awesome and it really is comfort food. The desserts and shakes are great especially the PB&J milkshake. Don't knock it until you try it!

Your comments:
I've never had success at the Brown Derby. The service is too fast and boy howdy, is it loud in there or what? I wish they'd bring back the cuban sandwich to ABC Commissary otherwise, that would be on my list of favorites. I've found the Studio Catering Co and Backlot Express to have some interesting offerings, not the usual standard lunch fare found at many counter service locales. And Writer's Stop is the best little place for an iced coffee or cappucino. No day in the Studios is complete for me without it! It's usually a quiet spot to get out of the sun, browse through books or take a load off your feet for a few minutes. Love it.

Your comments:
We have never tried Brown Derby, but we are this January! We have eaten at 50s Prime Time several times. I think the experience here truly does depend on the server. We love it when we have a server who plays around with us and really performs like a CM should, and then we have had someone who just took our order and brought us our food, which ruins the experience. I did not like Sci-Fi at all. I need to see what I am eating. I love the concept, I just prefer more lighting. I enjoyed Hollywood and Vine but would not go again. I love Character Dining, but I am not of the generation that grew up with Playhouse Disney (my husband and I are 25) and I have no children. Thanks to most of you all, I know have a new place to try: Writer's Stop. I am really looking forward to this!

Your comments: When I travel to the world it is usually with a son 9, daughter 6, and mother(you guess). We don't do a lot of sit down dinners with them. Staring Rolls is always our first stop after we have riden Toy Story Mania and have fast passes for another ride! My mother always eats at the Brown Derby when she is with her sister and loves it.

Your comments:
Nothing beats 50's Prime time Cafe whether its for a full meal or just stopping in for delicious desserts. Sunset Ranch Market also offers things like fresh fruit and have the classic turkey legs, I also believe you can buy beer there but dont quote me on that. I finally picked Starring Rolls Cafe because they have the best looking pastries and desserts.

Your comments:I also love eating at Hollywood Studios for the same reasons. There's such a wide ranch of "munchie" kiosks that I almost don't need to have a ressie for each meal. One meal would cover it if there weren't so many wonderful restaurants. Never enough time!!! I would also love to see a favorite list of desserts.
Thanks for a great Blog!

We have Hollywood and Vine and The Brown Derby on our wish lists for future visits, so the jury is still out on them. We also would like to eat at the Pizza Planet and Mama Melrose's as the flatbreads sound fantastic! We've tried ABC Commissary three times and each time we walked away not satisfied. I just can't try it again...

My family likes Sci-Fi. It's fun and the food has been good when we've gone. We haven't eaten at the Brown Derby for the same reason many of you have named--price. Maybe someday! I have wanted to try Starring Rolls, but it seems like it's always closed by the time we make it there. This year we will though, because my DD has made a special request, and you know that Princesses always get their way!

Your comments: This is hard for me because I rarely eat in this park. It's usually a quick stop in the morning to do TSM, PHD, and some character meets. With Epcot so close, we tend to just hop over there. My two choices for TS are the only places we have eaten, and we enjoy them both. Sci-Fi is a great lunch stop for a burger and shake. The theming at 50's is a lot of fun.

I did not list any CS because it has been years since we've eaten at them, the reason being they were not very good. I have heard from a number of people that they have drastically improved over the years, so we'll have to give them another chance.

Your comments: Mama Mellrose is a hidden gem. Great food, service and atmosphere. Sci Fi is fun; food isn't that great, but, if you stick to basics, it'll be fine (great hot fudge sundae if nothing else!). I'm not that big of a fan of Brown Derby except for the Cobb Salad and only at lunch. Had dinner there once, and it was expensive and food was only so-so. It's always freezing in there; ok for the first few minutes and then it's downright uncomfortable. Very pretty though--theming is great.

Don't usually eat at counter service but have experience ABC a few times and selections were good.

A few places I picked because I have a 7 yo boy with me (Sci-Fi and Toy Story Pizza planet). I would probably skip these choices if I were alone or with adults only.
We love Hollywood Studios, it is my son's favorite park and will always be MGM to me and my teenage daughters!

Your comments:

My wife and I just happened to come across The Brown Derby on our honeymoon, and now it became one of our favorite and must visit places for every trip. Although Sci-Fi isn't the best place to grab a burger, to me it is one of the most fun—I never had a chance to go to a drive-in, so this is as close as it gets for me (and I love the old movie clips). And Getie's on here just because I love the building so much.

Elizabeth:

Full Service Restaurants:

It's the only one I've eaten at besides Sci-Fi Dine-In (see comments below), and I loved it!

Counter Service Locations:

1)Backlot Express -Fun decor, good food, and I like indoor seating. I haven't enjoyed any other CS there, but I haven't Pizza Planet or ABC Commissary yet.

Your comments: I made the mistake of taking my three *young* sons to the Sci-Fi Dine-In based upon their love of cars. The 3 & 5 yr old were terrified by the Sci-Fi movie clips, and the baby napped prematurely due to the dark. The food was bad, too. Maybe we'll try again someday...but probably not.

In my 14 trips and continuing to go, these are our top choices. 1)Hollywood and Vine is one of our favs due to many choices that all in my family enjoy (everyone can find something on a buffet.) 2)Mama Melrose we love the atmosphere!! And we never had anything there we didn't like. 3)50's Prime Time again, what an awesome atmosphere!! We have had some wonderful waiters!! The only down would be if you are like myself and do not always finish your meal, you will find yourself in the hotseat!! HAHA.

As far as counter services, we don't always use them but these were the ones we visited in the last few visits. Never had a bad experience at any of them.

These are the only places I have eaten. I loved 50's and we really enjoyed H&V. We ate the Cuban sandwich at ABC and it was really good.

Nicole:

I was on vacation last week and missed this post. But I wanted to say that I think Play House Disney Live Hollywood and Vine is often over looked because of the charectors. We have lunch their twice now and the food is really really good. We really enjoy it! The music/dancers are really fun too.
