The Best Restaurants for Kids at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios

There are so many choices for restaurants at Walt Disney World. Narrowing down which ones are right for your vacation can be tricky. If you are visiting Disney World with kids, we’ve put together a list of the best choices for your visit to Hollywood Studios. These restaurants are on this list because their menu options are standard and familiar. Their seating areas are plentiful for large families. They are some of our family’s, with our three kids 8 and under, favourites. Hopefully this list will help you narrow down your best options at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Hollywood & Vine. Buffet Style Restaurant. Echo Lake.

This has got to be the best restaurant for the whole family at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. Hollywood & Vine is the only character dining experience at Hollywood Studios. During breakfast, Disney Junior characters are in attendance. During lunch and dinner, Minnie Mouse and many of the clubhouse gang make their way around the restaurant. The restaurant is buffet-style, which means your children can choose from a multitude of options. They can go back for more if they really like something or they can go back to the buffet if they don’t like something they chose. One thing to be aware of, Hollywood & Vine is the most expensive restaurant at Hollywood Studios. The cost per adult is up to $59 and per child is up to $39.

Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano. Table Service Restaurant. Grand Avenue.

Mama Melrose’s is your Italian restaurant at Hollywood Studios. The menu is filled with pastas and pizza. The restaurant is made up of booths, tables and chairs. Giving families lots of space to dine together. The restaurant is located in Grand Avenue, at the exit of Muppet Vision 3D. This area of the park is really quiet, making it a great spot for kids to run around while you’re waiting for your table. For a full review of the restaurant click here.

PizzeRizzo. Quick-Service Restaurant. Grand Avenue.

PizzeRizzo is one of our favourites at Hollywood Studios. It’s got personal pizzas on the menu and mobile ordering is available. The restaurant has seating on two levels, both inside and outside. PizzeRizzo is found in Grand Avenue, which is centrally located, keeping you in the middle of all the action. It’s a great choice for kids because the menu has pizza and pasta, a standard for many. PizzeRizzo is open for both lunch and dinner. For a full review of the restaurant click here.

Woody’s Lunchbox. Quick-Service Restaurant. Toy Story Land.

This quick-service restaurant is found in Toy Story Land, which is perfect because you can stay in the middle of the children’s focused area of the park while eating your meal. They do have mobile ordering, making it easy to choose your family’s meals. The menu is small, turkey sandwiches and grilled cheese sandwiches are the kids menu, but sometimes you don’t want a lot of choice. The restaurant is located outside, most tables are sheltered by large umbrellas, but the tables can be tough to come by. Woody’s Lunchbox is open for every meal of the day.

Backlot Express. Quick-Service Restaurant. Echo Lake.

This quick-service restaurant is HUGE. There’s no way you won’t find a table at this spot. You won’t have to wait around to be able to eat. You can eat inside or outside. The menu is filled with many fast food favourites: chicken nuggets and fries and burgers. But they also have a delicious salad for those wanting a break from the quick-service standards. A reason Backlot is a great choice for kids is how much eating area there is inside. Giving everyone a much needed break from the sun and the heat. For a full review of the restaurant click here.

Rosie’s All-American Cafe. Quick-Service Restaurant. Sunset Blvd.

Rosie’s All-American Cafe is a quick-service counter restaurant. You’ll head to the counter to place or pick up your order before finding a table outside to eat. What places Rosie’s on this list is the menu. They’ve got hot dogs, chicken nuggets, burgers. Lots of familiar items for your kids to choose from. It’s also across from Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage, a must for any visit to Hollywood Studios.

6 great restaurant options for your family’s visit to Hollywood Studios. Mama Melrose’s and Hollywood & Vine are going to require reservations ahead of time, but the rest are quick-service and are at the ready. I always recommend deciding which restaurants you’ll be eating before getting to the parks. This can help you map out your day and have meals in bellies before people get hangry.
