Cruise right in for a memorable meal at Hollywood Studios Sci-Fi Dine-In. This Hollywood sound stage takes you back to the era of drive-ins and sock hops. Your family will enjoy sitting underneath a sky full of your twinkling stars in your “automo-booth or table” as classic black and white science fiction clips and commercials play on the big screen.
You will find classic 50’s drive-in foods, such as onion rings, milkshakes (be sure to ask about the milkshake of the day!) and build-your-own burgers, but that’s not all. The menu hosts other memorable dishes, such as New York Strip Steak, Smoked Turkey sandwiches, and St. Louis-style Pork Ribs. Your children will find a wide variety of choices on the kid’s menu, such as popcorn chicken, mac-n-cheese, cheeseburgers, and grilled salmon to just name a few. You’ll want to save room for another milkshake for dessert or perhaps some warm cinnamon sugar donuts.
There are a few tables in the back that are picnic table-style. If you’d prefer one of those to the “car” set-up, be sure to request it. If you know you want a car, request it for good measure when you check in at the podium. If you arrive early, please note that waiting area is not large and most families have to wait outside with their pagers. Once inside, be sure to take time to explore the movie props and posters found throughout the restaurant’s “hallways”.
Whether it’s lunch or dinner, it’s always nighttime at the movies in this table-service restaurant built to look like a classic 1950’s drive-in theater. Your family will be taken back in time when you hop in your car and allow your attentive carhop serve up a tasty meal at the local drive-in. This is will quickly become a family favorite memory of your trip to Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. Advanced dining reservations are encouraged and can be made up to 180 days in advance. This restaurant is 1 credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
