Restaurant Review of Hollywood Studios’ Woody’s Lunch Box

Hollywood Studios is one of Disney World’s four theme parks. Hollywood Studios has lots of options when it comes to dining, whether you’re looking for a table-service meal, a bite sized snack or a quick meal between rides. One of the restaurants that can be found at Hollywood Studios is Woody’s Lunch Box.

Woody’s Lunch Box is located in Toy Story Land. It’s a counter service restaurant surrounded by tables with attached chairs. This restaurant is outside, the counter is covered by an overhang but you can really on eat here when it is not raining. Woody’s Lunch Box is made up to look like exactly it’s name, a lunch box that is opened up to become a restaurant. In Toy Story Land, guests are made to feel like they are toys, with everything around them being larger than life. So when you are sitting and eating at Woody’s Lunch Box you’ll be sitting on a Babybel next to a larger than life straw.

Woody’s Lunch Box is open for each meal of the day, from park open to park close. With Toy Story Land being one of the first areas of the park to open you can actually grab some breakfast here before jumping on your first ride. For breakfast you can choose between the ever popular box tarts or choose a more hearty breakfast sandwich or breakfast bowl. The menu for lunch and dinner are the same, with a smoked brisket sandwich, three cheese grilled cheese and turkey sandwich making up the entree portion. Woody’s also serves some alcoholic beverages including the Grown-Up Lemonade.

Toy Story Land is extremely popular, making this restaurant a hot spot. I strongly encourage using mobile ordering if you plan on dining here. If you are waiting in line, use your MyDisneyExperience app to decide before you get to the window to order.

We dined here back in January, ordering a couple of box tarts and coffees. After waiting for our food for a while I had to speak up twice to make sure they didn’t forget my order. The second time I noticed several people who had ordered after I did receive their food. So be sure your order does not get lost in the chaos. My husband grabbed some seats while I waited in line. With such minimal seating found at this restaurant I’d advise you do the same.

If you find yourself in this area around meal time, this is your only choice to eat. Or if you’re in Galaxy’s Edge and you have picky eaters who don’t want to dine on food that makes you feel like you’re in a galaxy far, far away, sneak on over to Woody’s Lunch Box. It’s very close.

I would eat here again, but I would choose to dine at PizzeRizzo’s or Backlot Express first. They have lots of indoor seating and are managed much better.
