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.

Nothing like I ever experienced before!
This property was absolutely gorgeous! Everything was perfect and clean. We enjoyed the house so much that we didn’t even bother to go to the water park in the community. The backyard and pool is breathtaking! I will definitely book again in the future.

We had a great time. The house is beautiful with everything we needed for our stay. I only recommend putting a blind in the front door for privacy.
This property was everything we wanted...and more! The home was very clean. We enjoyed the pool, home theater, and game room! We also enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. We also enjoyed the water park and the soccer field every day. The kids didn’t want to leave. We will definitely be back.

We had an amazing time at this property. I was very happy with the cleanliness of the house. Every room was very well equipped with pillows and blankets. The pool was amazing!! The kitchen had more than enough glasses and plates for all 8 of us. We had an issue with the fridge ice maker which was fixed right away after I called the number provided . Internet and cable worked great! Overall, we had a great time and it exceeded our expectations!

It was a fun time for all ages. Our family just wanted to have a getaway vacation this summer, especially during these trying times. The Property Manager was fabulous! Very quick responses, via email, whenever I had a question. Thanks for everything!!

We enjoyed our stay! The check-in process was excellent. The property was clean. It could use a little dusting in hidden spaces. The resort pool was a gem! We had one issue with oven- circuit kept overheating and oven would shut down but maintenance did come the same night. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful home with spacious, clean rooms. It was a nice place to come home to after a day at the park. Check-in and out was a breeze! The Game Room is a nice bonus. Spa and pool are lovely.

Our second time staying. Great pool, with distance from the neighbours. When night comes the kids tend to wander up to the impressive theater room giving the adults some down time to relax and chat in the comfortable pool side furniture. Excellent all around.
