It’s officially the Christmas season! While Disney has been gearing up since November 1st it’s finally official. We’ve been able to share some amazing holiday happenings around the Walt Disney World Resort and we are excited to share another new favorite. Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood Studios is a perfect way to get into the Holiday spirit.
This is an incredibly fun character buffet that’s located at Hollywood and Vine and is special just for the season. Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy are all there in their holiday best. This one needs a reservation because it gets quite busy. The holiday dine is both lunch and dinner and runs to the beginning of January.

We are having a blast at Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Here's a look at the buffet! You can meet Minnie and friends in their holiday gear for lunch and dinner. @waltdisneyworld #minniesholidaydine #hollywoodstudios #hollywoodandvine #waltdisneyworld #chipandco #disneydining #disneycharacterbuffet
This is a buffet as most character meals around the resort are. For this seasonal meal they have some traditional holiday offerings such as turkey, roast, green bean casserole and more. They also have a spot just for kids with chicken, tots, and mac and cheese.
Our first character to come around was Donald. This will probably rotate depending on where characters are when you are seated. They will all come right to your table. To meet all of them it takes roughly about an hour. That’s an estimate depending on how busy the restaurant is that day. We went on Black Friday and though the restaurant was packed everyone was very friendly and it still took the hour to see them all.
Mickey came shortly after Donald. We had a decent wait before Donald came which gave us time to hit the buffet and then the characters started coming pretty quickly after that. Daisy was almost right after Mickey. And then there was a nice gap to Minnie which allowed us to grab some yummy desserts. Goofy is the only character that doesn’t come to the table. They give you a card and you can meet him on your way out. He has a super fun backdrop and there’s a photopass photographer there.
The dessert was also themed towards the holidays. My absolute favorite was the eggnog cheesecake. It was so delicious I can’t get over it. They have a few options and then ice cream and chocolate chip cookies as well.
This was such a fun dining experience. It was such a great way to meet the characters in their holiday best and have some amazing food. This buffet is $54 per adults and $32 per guest ages 3-9. This is eligible for the dining plan. It’s a table service credit per person in your party. You can make dining reservations on your My Disney Experience app. This was so much fun and the kids and adults all loved it. It’s also such an amazing way to kick off the holidays while visiting Walt Disney World.
