In my opinion, this park has the weakest food options. This may change over the next few years as they finish Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land, but we actually chose to leave the park for lunch on our January 2017 trip. That doesn’t mean you won’t find something you like though!
- ABC Commissary – basic burgers/nuggets/ribs/etc
- Backlot Express – hot dogs, nuggets, burgers, etc. They do offer a few Star Wars themed options
- Catalina Eddie’s – pizza, caesar salad
- Fairfax Fare – pulled pork, empanadas, etc
- Min & Bill’s Dockside Diner – hot dogs, nachos, etc.
- PizzeRizzo – Muppet’s themed pizza place
- Rosie’s All-American Cafe – burgers, nuggets, etc
- 50’s Prime Time Cafe – I really wanted to love this place, it came very highly suggested by friends/family, but it was just ok. It’s themed as if you’re eating at your grandma’s house in the 1950’s, some tables have black and white TV’s by them. Luke’s meal was much better than mine, my review is here. The servers can call you out for using your phone, having your elbows on the table, not eating your veggies, etc. Try the peanut butter and jelly milkshake – you can walk in and get one to go. Menu is meatloaf, pot roast, chicken pot pie, etc.
- Hollywood Brown Derby – a signature restaurant, which means a little higher end. Lamb, duck, steak, seafood. Most popular item is the Cobb Salad.
- Hollywood & Vine – Disney Jr. themed buffet breakfast & lunch (Sofia the First, Handy Manny, etc) . Dinner is Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Daisy and Goofy
- Mama Melrose’s – Italian restaurant
- Sci-Fi Fine-In Theater – Designed to look like an old drive-in theater, the table booths are actually cars with 3 rows in each. The theming is awesome, I just wasn’t hungry/feeling great the day we went. My review is here. Menu is burgers, salads, steak – pretty standard American food.
After eating at Tusker House, I really wanted to push forward with our day, but I was really sick. I realized I would not be able to make it to our planned supper reservation (and even if I did, I would not enjoy myself at all) so I sadly had to call to cancel our ADR for 1900 Park Fare . Since we had every day of our trip planned with ADR’s, there was no time slots that worked with our schedule to try and get back to it, I was really sad about that.
After sadly spending the better part of the next hour in the washroom feeling really sick, we decided to call it a day and head back to our hotel. We arrived back to our hotel around 3:15pm. I immediately crawled into bed but was in too much discomfort to fall asleep right away. Luke decided he should try for a nap as well, since we knew we had a very early morning the next day for the 10km race. I eventually did fall asleep, and we both napped until a little after 6pm. After waking up I was feeling a bit better, but definitely not 100% and I knew I didn’t want to go too far to get supper, so we decided to just eat at Intermission Food Court at All Star Music.
Luke does not like carb-loading the night before a race like a lot of people do, he prefers to just try and have a healthyish meal (no deep fried things). He chose the pot roast with green beans and mashed potatoes ($10.49). Since we were on the dining plan, he also grabbed a chocolate dipped Mickey rice krispie ($4.49) and some milk ($2.49). He really liked his meal (although he had a better pot roast the next day), but overall he was pleased with the food for the cost, especially since this was a “food court” meal.
I went for the turkey with green beans and mashed potatoes ($11.99), with a bottle of Coke ($2.99) and a chocolate muffin ($3.99). I was really impressed by this, the turkey was actually carved when I ordered it so it was still nice and moist and not all dried out from sitting under a heat lamp for hours. It was one of those all white meat turkey breats, not the entire turkey, but it was quite tasty! The mashed potatoes were good, the gravy had flavour to it and the green beans were fairly standard (and nothing will compare to those green beans from BOG!). Overall, another great option from Intermission Food Court (I assumed 3 star hotel, 3 star food but that was not the case!). Also yes, I really like pepper haha.
We used 1 quick service credit each for this meal. We had brought our refillable mugs with us, so I saved my bottle of Coke for later in the trip, and just drank water. The muffin I also saved, and ate for breakfast the next morning (breakfast of Champions, am I right?!). If we were paying out of pocket, the cost would have been $36.44 + tax, so not a terrible use of 2 quick service credits in my opinion.
Luke also picked up a yogurt parfait ($5.49) to eat the next morning before his race, and used a snack credit for it – so a really great use of one of those!
After eating I did feel a bit better, but we decided to call it an early night and we were both asleep again by 9pm – ready for a SUPER early morning wakeup the next day.
