Sci Fi Dining Car Returns in Front of Restaurant After Refurbishment

Sci Fi Car Returns in Front of Restaurant After Refurbishment

It’s back!  After the Sci Fi Dine In Theater Restuarant in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios received a few magical enhancements the dining car is once again out in front of the restaurant.   This special item gives guests an example of what type of table, or vehicle, they will be dining in.

The Disney parks are known for their unique dining experiences and this is no exception.  The Sci Fi Dine In Theater Restaurant transports guests to a 1950’s style drive-in movie theater where you dine in car shaped booths.      Each family dines in a 1950’s model automobile while they are treated to hilarious retro movie clips on the screen in front of them.   Watch out because the person sitting in the front left seat may be appointed the driver and the others hitchhikers.    It’s all a very fun experience.

It’s only open for lunch and dinner and you’ll find American cuisine with good burgers and shakes but it’s the unique dining experience that keeps guests coming back.  Although the awesome fried pickles always bring me back.  Make sure to add this restaurant to your advance dining reservation list – you can make them 180 days out – because it is very popular and it hard to get at the last moment.   If you’re on the dining plan it counts as a “Table Service” credit.

If you have never had a chance to dine here then this is definitely a must do.  It is a dark dining environment so keep that in mind if you have children that don’t like dark atmospheres.

You’ll find the Sci Fi Dine In Theater Restaurant in Hollywood Studios just around the corner from the Star Tours gift shop.
