best-breakfast-at-hollywood-studios-woodys-box-lunch

Walt Disney World is known for it’s amazing breakfast locations. And although most of these eateries are located at the Walt Disney World hotels Hollywood Studios does have a few of our favorite breakfast restaurants.

What is the best restaurant for breakfast at Hollywood Studios?

  • Hollywood & Vine
  • Woody’s Lunch Box
  • Ronto Roasters

Hollywood & Vine – (Best Sit Down) Breakfast at Hollywood Studios

When looking for places to eat Hollywood Studios, don’t look past Hollywood & Vine. The Junior Play n’ Dine is the park’s character experience; this breakfast features favorites such as Mickey waffles, omelets, pastries, and fresh fruit. For lunch/dinner, Vine competes with the other Hollywood Studios restaurants. And the themes change with the seasons; celebrate with popular Disney Characters for a Halloween Dine, Minnie’s Holiday Dine, and more! (ADRs are highly recommended for the character breakfast experience.)

Woody’s Lunch Box 

Although Woody’s Lunch Box is not technically a sit down restaurant the theming make it one of our favorite breakfast spots in all of Walt Disney World.  This eatery features a backyard walk-up window and Toy Story-themed specialties. In addition to the best lunch in Hollywood, this food stop is great for breakfast at Hollywood Studios, featuring “toy-riffic” treats like “Lunch Box Tarts.”

Ronto Roasters

Another one of the amazing themed breakfast locations in Hollywood Studios is located in Galaxy’s Edge. Ronto Roasters has quickly become one of the best breakfasts in Hollywood Studios. Besides being one of the best lunch spots in Hollywood, it’s also great if you want a more traditional breakfast or if you’re planning to start your day with a sprint-walk across the park.

Additional Breakfast at Hollywood Studios Locations

The Trolley Car Café : This classic trolley car station is Hollywood Studios’ Starbucks location. Enjoy a unique atmosphere, recognizable breakfast items, and Disney baked goods. Venti Strawberry Açai, anyone? All aboard!

Joffrey’s: As the official “Specialty Coffee” of Disney, you will find Joffrey’s kiosks scattered throughout the parks. It’s a great place to grab coffee or pastries when you’re on the go.

The Best 2021 Sit Down Restaurants Hollywood Studios

best-table-service-restaurants-at-hollywood-studios

In our opinion Hollywood Studios has the best selection of sit down restaurants in all of Walt Disney World. Not only is the food amazing but the unique theming of each restaurant really  lives up to the Disney magic. Below are the absolute best sit down restaurants in Hollywood Studios in 2021! 

What are the best sit down restaurants in Hollywood Studios?

  • Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant
  • 50’s Prime Time Café
  • The Hollywood Brown Derby
  • Oga’s Cantina
  • Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant

In many conversations with fellow Disney lovers, this restaurant has been named one of the best places to eat in Hollywood Studios. It offers dinner and a show—’50s-style—at a drive-in “theater,” all-American cuisine, and thrilling, chilling sci-fi movie clips. It’s always showtime here, where a classic car hop guides you to your very own automo-booth and kitschy vintage memorabilia sets the mood. Menu items include Fried Dill Pickles, a Drive-in BBQ Burger, a House-made Sci-Fi Candy Bar, and other delicious food at Hollywood Studios. Anyone else need another snack break while reading this?

50’s Prime Time Café

This 1950’s kitschy place is a blast from the past and is one of Hollywood Studios best restaurants. It’s an all-American eatery “themed like Mom’s kitchen.” Visitors bring their appetites AND their senses of humor, because the cast members aren’t above giving you “lessons in table etiquette—and doling out punishment to misbehaving boys and girls.” The cast members are the stars of the show here, and the menu has some of the best food at Hollywood Studios. Menu items include Grandpa’s Crab Cake, Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken, and of course Mom’s Old-fashioned Pot Roast. A true family experience and one of the best places to eat at Hollywood Studios.

The Hollywood Brown Derby

You’ve stepped into the Hollywood Brown Derby, which means you’ve also stepped into the Golden Age of Hollywood. If you’re wondering where to eat in Hollywood, menu items include some of the best food in Hollywood Studios, like Faroe Island salmon, char-grilled filet of beef, and a delicious Cobb salad. Also, for the perfect end to any meal, this eatery offers a mouth-watering lineup of cakes. Grapefruit cake? Yes. Chocolate Mousse Cake? Also yes. Chocolate-Coconut Cake? If you insist. Is this the best place to eat in Hollywood Studios? You decide!

Oga’s Cantina

This local cantina at Galaxy’s Edge specializes in fantastical drinks sourced with ingredients from across the galaxy and includes musical entertainment courtesy of a droid DJ. But to order selections with alcohol—like the Jedi Mind Trick cocktail—you will need to show your ID.

Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano

I always end up venturing to Mama Melrose’s when looking for places to eat in Hollywood Studios. It may be my passion for complex carbohydrates, or perhaps it’s the overall vibe of this casual and colorful Italian eatery. Menu items include margarita flatbread, authentic pastas, savory chicken, and seafood options for some of the best dining at Hollywood Studios. Portions are large enough to share, and with its overhead string lights and walls crowded with eclectic items, it’s a very inviting atmosphere. And when I’m here, I always feel invited to smash several Cannoli’s into my face. I mean…salad.
