A Complete Guide to Disney's Hollywood Studios Dining

by Mommy Frog on November 26, 2023

Guide to Hollywood Studios Dining - PinterestDisney's Hollywood Studios has quite the variety of dining options with lots of grab-and-go quick bites as well as fabulous table service restaurants. Immerse yourself in themed lands with toy-riffic treats in Toy Story Land or savor the iconic blue milk in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. There's something for everyone at Hollywood Studios! Let's dip in to learn more about the many dining options.

Disney's Hollywood Studios Dining

Hollywood Studios has some of the most variety of dining at Disney World. With twelve quick-service locations and seven table service restaurants, there are a lot of options for a frog family. The themed locations vary from the original Hollywood glam, the working studio to newer options like immersive locations with in-depth theming.

Reservations for table-service restaurants are available 60 days in advance (or even over 60 days if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel). These should be done as early as possible, as many locations get booked quite quickly. This is especially recommended at many locations at Hollywood Studios, such as the Hollywood Brown Derby and Oga's Cantina.

Nearly all of the quick service restaurants offer mobile ordering through the My Disney Experience app. Most locations will have arrival windows right away or within 10 to 15 minutes, though popular locations like Woody's Lunchbox may be further out, so you'll want to try to plan out your meals before you have hungry tadpoles on your hands.

Table-service Restaurants at Hollywood Studios

If you’re looking for a sit-down meal that immerses you in the glitz of Old Hollywood or the retro vibe of the golden era of television, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has a collection of favorites that will appease fans of every genre.
