Playhouse Disneys Hollywood and Vine Lunch
At the Hollywood and Vine you have a choice of two character meals either Breakfast or Lunch. Having been to several character breakfasts we opted for lunch and were not disappointed.
As with all character meals be prepared to book well in advance. You can book most of these meals 180 days ahead. For reservations, call 407-WDW-DINE. This is a nice character meal because it features the characters singing and dancing to favourite Playhouse Disney songs.
Lunch is between 11:40 a. m. - 2:25 p. m. and the prices are $24. 99 for guests age 10 and older and $13. 99 guest ages 3-9 years. Children under 3 are free but you must mention them in your total when you make your reservation. These prices are plus tax and
non-alcoholic beverages are included.
The day we went the restaurant was not very busy in fact I would estimate it was only half full. Our server was extremely attentive and kept returning to our table to ensure all was well. On an adjoining table there was a “birthday girl” and our server made such a fuss of her and everyone in the restaurant know about her birthday the girl was so thrilled.
The adults thoroughly enjoyed the food which included a selection of salads (including a fantastic seafood salad), sliced deli meats and cheeses with freshly baked breads which were to die for. Hot options included pot roast, fishcakes, some beautiful salmon with herbs, chicken, mashed potatoes and vegetables.
There were also the usual children’s options and although one of the girls choose mac cheese from these they both enjoyed the adult’s options.
We all enjoyed the dessert and sundae station! There was some lovely soft ice cream, chocolate brownies as well as a variety of traditional desserts.
It was great for our younger girl and my niece because the characters were Jojo and Goliath, and all four of the Little Einsteins. Two of these little Einsteins would do the rounds whilst the other two were taking a nap. We do not eat particularly fast (and Grandad kept returning for more! ) so we saw all four of them.
There was also a " Play Pal" similar to the person leading the show at Playhouse Disney that came around and interacted with the children who all did a conga line around the restaurant as well as lots of singing and dancing.
I would really recommend this meal for young children; it was amongst one of our favourites. The only drawback might be that as the restaurant is large and if it is full the interaction might not be as wonderful as we experienced the day we went.
