With the dining plan taking a hiatus for the foreseeable future, knowing how much different restaurants cost at Disney World is more important than ever. Having a range of what your dining costs will be during your Disney World vacation will keep the stress of over paying to a minimum. That’s why we’ve been researching which Disney World restaurants are the most expensive. We’ve already looked at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, for more on that click here. As well at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, for more on that click here. To figure out which restaurant is the most expensive we’ve combed through all of the menus of the restaurants found at the park. We’ve made up a meal of the least expensive items available. The meal includes what the Disney Dining Plan would normally cover: an alcoholic beverage, an entree and a dessert. We also chose from the dinner menu, as lunch menus and breakfast menus tend to be cheaper. So let’s take a look at which restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the most expensive.
Hollywood & Vine
Hollywood & Vine is Hollywood Studios’ buffet restaurant that features characters. It’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cost of a meal at Hollywood & Vine is $55 per adult. This includes the buffet and any non-alcoholic beverages. If you choose to add on an alcoholic beverage that’s extra. The buffet has salads, soups, meats, sides and desserts. At breakfast, there’s fruit, breakfast meat, pancakes, an omelette station and pastries. The large cost of this meal has a great deal to do with the character interaction. This is a sought after experience and that causes the price to be high. For a full review of this restaurant click here.
I was very surprised that Hollywood & Vine was the park’s most expensive restaurant. I thought for sure the Signature restaurant The Hollywood Brown Derby would be the most costly. The Hollywood Brown Derby is the only Signature restaurant at Hollywood Studios but when looking at the menu items and the costs, you can have a bill as low as $45.
So there you have it. The most expensive restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the character buffet restaurant Hollywood & Vine. For more tips on dining at Walt Disney World check out these previous posts:
