Where to Eat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
If you’re looking for a dining extravaganza, book yourself a Fantasmic! Dinner Package, which features a magical Disney show. There are plenty of other great restaurants to have a great meal, such as The Hollywood Brown Derby or the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater Restaurant. Alternatively, grab a slice of pizza at Pizza Planet or a salad at Catalina Eddie’s.
If you’re staying in one of our vacation rentals in Orlando and you’re visiting Hollywood Studios, here’s some tips to help you get the best out of your day.
Get your timing right. If you want to watch the parade, try to arrive around 30 minutes before it starts and sit in front of Mickey’s hat for a great view.
GLove retro eating? If you love to eat 50s style, head to the 50s Prime Time café, which has a really authentic feel.
Avoid motion sickness. If you feel nauseous when riding roller coasters, avoid sitting up front on the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.
Save your shopping. Shops stay open an hour after the rest of the park closes, so save any shopping until the end of your day.
Arrive early. If you don’t want to line up for hours, get to Hollywood Studios at least half an hour before it opens.

House was perfect for our group. Yard and pool area were great for relaxing, rooms are spaced out and everything was clean. Garage with game room was awesome for the kids. Only issue was that not all TVs had cable. Not a big deal . Everything else was great. Location was about 15 min to Disney parks and a short walk to the main pool area.

House was perfect for our group of 11. Bedrooms were large - and allowed plenty of privacy. Having 2 separate living room spaces was nice so that the older kids could play video games and watch TV on the second floor - while other hung out on the first floor. We didn’t pay extra to heat the pool - which was a good choice for a June visit! Shuttle service to theme parks was a perk - though it wasn’t always timely. Overall - the house met our needs!

Beautiful house. Very spacious. We were 4 couples. Everyone had their own bedroom with bathroom. Only downfall was the washer and dryer were hard to use because of a breaker that kept tripping. Other than that everything was perfect!
