Visited here for a meal i made a reservation using my disney experience as it seemed to be a very popular place to eat. It was fab we had a lovely meal and we enjoyed watching the old movies. Would highly recommend eating here but best to book a table.

Restaurant experiences like this are what makes Disney special. In the end, I had the picnic burger and my SO had the fish sandwich (both were good, but not spectacular). Still, we absolutely loved our meal because we were sitting in a car, watching the big screen, sipping on our milkshakes, and feeling like we were living in the past.... More

Despite being a tad too dark which, Yes I appreciate it needs to be if you're meant to be sat in an drive in 50s outdoor theatre, the food was delicious and portion size huge. Didn't like sharing our car and the space was a little tight but it was fantastic. I would skip starters or share one between four... More

This was a great restaurant experience. The only drawback was being seated in a car that all tables face the screen vs. being seated in one of the cars where the chairs face each other. The kids loved it. They felt like they were really eating in a car at a drive-in. The food was amazing. I had the steak... More

This was our second trip here. We love the concept but it just doesn't seem to work somehow. Food was okay, but not fantastic. Atmosphere was good but a little dark and the seating arrangements are tough when you have 3 kids and they all need some attention. Probably our last time eating here

All of the restaurants at Disney Studios had no reservations available. Our party of six decided to try without reservations at 6PM. We were told to expect a 40 minute wait but got seats in about 20. The food was good and the service was excellent. The experience was unique. You sit in what looks like cars at a 50's... More

Average food quality. We had the dining plan and ordered the $31.99 steak plate. I wouldn't want to pay that much out of pocket for what I got. The flavor of the meat was good but the vegetable medley was bland and a little watery. I had the cheesecake dessert as it was also included in the plan and was... More

The menu and food quality doesn't justify the prices, but the uniqueness of the atmosphere does. This is one of the most unique dining experiences you'll have. You're sitting in a "car" at a drive in movie theatre while dining. Lot of fun - kids love it. Milkshakes are very good.

This is the second time we visited and we were impressed yet again with the fun atmosphere, excellent service, and wonderful food. This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit and I will be back. The only draw back is this is not set up for visiting with people in your party as the atmosphere is quiet due to... More
