Hollywood & Vine
Hollywood & Vine features daily buffets for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant’s art deco decor is meant to bring guests back to the golden age of Hollywood. Although I feel like the clanging of chairs and noise level takes away from that overall theme, I can see how this would be the must-dine location for families visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The buffet here is up to par with similar dining locations throughout the resort and the restaurant takes the Disney Dining Plan for all meals and participates in the Fantasmic Dining Package for dinner.
If you are dining at Hollywood & Vine for breakfast or lunch, expect a visit from some very special Disney guests! The morning and afternoon buffets include characters! Although subject to change, Disney Junior stars Handy Manny, Special Agent Oso, and a Little Einstein or two are set to appear. In the spirit of Disney Junior, expect sing-a-longs, dance-a-longs, and even some playing while you eat! Because this is the only character dining experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, reservations book up fast so try and make yours as close to your 180 day out mark as possible!
