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.

This was the perfect location! This property is not a long drive at all from Disney and very close to a lot of local restaurants/attractions. The neighborhood is very secure and nice. The house itself was tidy and spacious. Exactly what my family needed on this trip!

This property is approximately 10 minutes from Disney and close to lots of restaurants, Walmart, Publix and gift shops! Allow extra travel time because traffic is heavy in the area.

This house was perfect for our family. We had a couple of questions and we got super quick responses. Very easy to all of the Disney parks, SeaWorld, and the airport. My granddaughter LOVED her room, the playroom, and the pool was perfect! The only negative we have to comment on would be the air conditioning. I think that might need updating or something. It never was cool in there. We are from PA so it wasn't a big deal to us!

There were three families, 5 kids ages 3 to 10 plus adults. There was more thank enough room for all of us inside and out. Neighborhood is very nice and location to Encore is excellent. We went to the parks each day, super easy drive. Kitchen is well stocked with appliances, pots and pans. We were there for a week. We cooked most of our meals at home, if you don’t plan to do that you may not need additional items in kitchen. We bought paper supplies, toilet paper, paper hand towels, napkins, salt and paper, Tupperware, foil, seranwrap
