Dining options at Walt Disney World Resort abound! You can dine with beasts, royalty and critters. You can try cuisine from almost every country in the world. You can have the Kitchen Sink for breakfast and do a pub-crawl for dinner. Or you may desire a restaurant with a completely distinctive atmosphere and dishes reminiscent of a simpler time.
Let’s go back to poodle skirts, convertibles, milk shakes and drive-in movie theaters! Let’s check out Sci Fi Dine In Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Sci Fi Dine In Theater is on the Disney Dining Plan and is one table service credit. Advanced reservations at 180 days prior are highly suggested. This restaurant is on Commissary Lane near the Star Tours attraction. Tables can seat 4-6 guests, with a few options for larger parties.
As you walk up to the entrance, you will see a 1950’s convertible and an enormous sign.
Car Hops are there to greet you with a friendly smile, take you to the drive-in theater and seat your family at a table…? a car…? This is what makes your experience so unique. Your table is a car… your car is a table!
It is always the perfect summer night at Sci Fi, with the stars twinkling and the cars perfectly aligned to give each guest a great view of the movie screen. The sound is piped into your car through an authentic microphone.
Sci Fi is known for its unique fried pickles, sandwiches and shakes, though the ribs and steaks are pretty amazing! On our latest visit, my family ordered a varied selection of dishes, including the alfredo pasta with blackened chicken. The chicken was moist, but so spicy that my daughter would not eat it. She devoured the pasta, however.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Caprese sandwich, burger, chicken strips and the gooey mac and cheese. All of these meals were pleasant and flavorful.
Overall, Sci Fi Dine In Theater offers classic American dishes with consistently high-quality flavors. The best part of this restaurant is the atmosphere and service. Be sure to take the time to explore the license plates. All of which pay homage to a Disney Cast Member with their initials and birthday.
