Last week, during my family’s trip to WDW, we were one of the first to have dinner at the newly themed, Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood & Vine in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  This buffet dinner was very similar to what Hollywood & Vine has offered in the past, making you feel like you stepped back in time to a diner of yesterdays.  But, the holiday decor gave a different feel and it was certainly a feast fit for any occasion!  And let’s not forget the best part….the characters!!

Santa Goofy

Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were escorted inside where we had a photo taken with Santa Goofy.  Then we were shown to our table, ordered our beverages and hit the buffet.  The food offerings seemed endless- from turkey and ham at the carving stations, to an endless array of holiday favorite side dishes- like sweet and mashed potatoes, stuffing, shrimp, and my all-time favorite…green bean casserole!  And the desserts…oh my the desserts!  They were AMAZING!  Dipped marshmallows, peppermint bark, mini pumpkin pies, red velvet cake, chocolate covered strawberries, ice cream and more were waiting for us when we finished our meal.

As we dined, favorite Disney characters decked out in their holiday attire made their rounds for photos and autographs.  Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy stopped by the interaction was perfect!  In an effort to makes sure that the characters made their rounds, my autograph frame was taken to the back for the characters to sign.  I loved that they did this because I didn’t have to worry about the mat getting dirty from dinner and it gave me more chances to snap photos.  Holiday tunes played from the speakers and the diners were invited to sing-a-long to some of our favorite Christmas carols.

All in all, we had an amazing dinner.  It was a nice way to get into the holiday spirit and a great character dining experience.  This special dining option runs through January 3rd and reservations are a must.  If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, this dinner is 1 Table Service credit.
