Character Dining at Hollywood & Vine
Hollywood and Vine is the place to be if you have Disney Junior loving kiddos! Located in the Echo Lake area of Hollywood Studios, you can have an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet with Disney Junior friends in the morning, or Minnie and friends in the afternoon and evening. Since this restaurant is in Hollywood Studios, you will need valid park admission to dine here.
Breakfast is served from 8:00am to 10:20am and includes favorites like Mickey waffles, made-to-order omelets, pastries, and fresh fruit. Plus, you can even top it off with an ice cream sundae! Adults can also enjoy a mimosa or bloody mary with their meal.
Throughout your breakfast, you’ll be greeted by Disney Junior stars usually including Fancy Nancy, Doc McStuffins, Vampirina, and Roadster Racer Goofy (subject to change). They’ll come around right to your table for photos and autographs! On the 2020 Disney Dining Plan, Hollywood & Vine will use one table service credit. If you’re paying cash for breakfast, it’ll be $42 for adults and $27 for children (aged 3-9) plus gratuities.
Lunch is served from 11:20am to 3:00pm and dinner is served from 3:20pm - 8:00pm. Both lunch and dinner are served buffet style and include an abundance of choices including salads, freshly made soup, pastas, baked breads, roasted carved meats, crab claws, seasonal fish, peel-n-eat shrimp, chicken, vegetables, kid’s fare including chicken tenders and mac & cheese, and then you can top it off with house-made sweets and soft-serve ice cream. The menu changes seasonally depending on the theme of Minnie’s Party.
During lunch and dinner you’ll get to meet and greet with Minnie and friends - usually, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Mickey (subject to change). Depending on the time of year, you can meet them in seasonal costumes! From January 6, 2020 - March 1, 2020 you can enjoy Minnie’s Silver Screen Dine - a party celebrating movie magic and Hollywood glamour. From March 2, 2020 - May 31, 2020, enjoy Minnie’s Springtime Dine featuring all the friends in garden party outfits. From June 1, 2020 - August 16, 2020, enjoy Minnie’s Summertime Dine - a beach-inspired party to celebrate the summer season. Later in the season, you can also celebrate with Minnie’s Halloween Dine and Minnie’s Holiday Dine. On the 2020 Disney Dining Plan, Hollywood & Vine will use one table service credit. If you’re paying cash for lunch or dinner, it’ll be $55 for adults and $36 for children (aged 3-9) plus gratuities. Specialty drinks, cocktails, wine, and beer are available at an additional cost.
Last time we visited was in January 2019 at lunch during Minnie’s Silver Screen Dine, and it was nice! The buffet was your standard fare but everything was fresh and warm. That said, we were pretty stuffed and needed to just sit for awhile before getting back at it. Given how popular Hollywood Studios has become with the recent opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, and Toy Story Land, this could be a great choice for breakfast or an early lunch. You can rope drop the park, get your boarding pass for Rise of the Resistance, schedule your Runaway Railway FastPass for early in the day and knock that out then go take your time and have a nice meal while you wait for your Rise of the Resistance group to be called.
