15 DFB Reviews You HAVE to Read Before Visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been a very popular park thanks to all of its new attractions!

Hollywood Studios

The latest lands like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land have brought huge crowds to Studios, as well as new rides like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway! And the park still has really long waits for older thrill rides like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster Starring Aerosmith. So, if you do manage to score a theme park reservation for Hollywood Studios, you’re going to want to have the best day possible and we’re here to help! We have all the reviews you need before you head on down Hollywood Boulevard.

Here are the 15 Disney Food Blog reviews you need to read before going to Hollywood Studios!

Table Service Restaurants

Hollywood Brown Derby

The Brown Derby is a signature dining experience based off of the famous Brown Derby restaurant(s) in California!

Who wants a Cobb Salad?

It’s home to the iconic Cobb Salad, which was created at the original restaurant in the 1930s, and the legendary Grapefruit Cake! This is one of the fancier restaurants in Hollywood Studios, so it’s great for a celebration!

Don’t worry, the famous Cobb Salad is still available

We recently reviewed the latest menu at Brown Derby, so check it out below if you’re interested in having an old Hollywood style dinner while in Studios!

50s Prime Time Cafe

The themed dining room will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time with its retro tables and televisions. You really get the full experience of a meal in the 50s, as you look like you’re having a meal in your grandma’s kitchen!

Sci-Fi Dine-In is one of the most unique dining experiences in all of Disney World! You eat inside of an old car while watching retro films like you’re at a drive-in movie!

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater

They serve up classics like burgers and onion rings to really capture that Old Hollywood feel.

Beef and Blue Burger

If you’re looking for some entertainment during your meal, give Sci-Fi a try!

Counter Service Restaurants

Backlot Express

Backlot Express is themed to look like a production warehouse and is a great spot for lunch while in Hollywood Studios.

Backlot Express Dining Room

They have classic theme parks eats like burgers and French fries and they usually have some kind of Star Wars themed treat on the menu! Which makes sense, as it’s located right next to Star Tours.

Backlot Burger Cross-section

If you’re looking for your typical theme park food to power you through your day or need to feed some picky eaters, check out Backlot Express!

ABC Commissary

ABC Commissary is designed to look exactly like what the name says, a commissary on the ABC production lot!

Inside the commissary

It recently reopened from refurbishment and is known for serving things like pot roast, ribs, and burgers. A new style of fast-casual dinner service has just made its debut at this location.

That is one GOOD lookin’ salad.

Check out what the new dinner service is like at ABC Commissary to see if it’s the right choice for your next trip!

Fairfax Fare

Over on Sunset Boulevard is Fairfax Fare, a small stand sitting in the shadow of Tower of Terror.

Fairfax Fare

The counter service location just got an all new menu that features various kinds of hot dogs!

We’re getting some strong ballpark vibes here…

There’s a classic Chicago dog and even a plant-based brat for all the non-meat eaters. It’s the perfect stop if you want a quick bite and love a good hot dog!

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo

Docking Bay 7 is in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and themed to a delivery shuttle that ships goods on and off the planet of Batuu.

Inside Docking Bay 7

They serve things like Endorian Fried Tip Yip (don’t worry, it’s just chicken) and Batuuan Beef Pot Roast. It’s a great place to fuel up on your travels through the galaxy!

A Ronto Wrap AND chips!

If you have picky eaters, they should be happy here, as there is some pretty standard food (just served under unusual names) like mac ‘n’ cheese!

Check out our review of Docking Bay 7 here!

Woody’s Lunch Box

Andy’s coming!!!! Woody’s Lunch Box will have you feel like you’ve shrunk down to the size of a toy in Andy’s backyard!

Woody’s Lunch Box

Sit down and relax on the Babybel Cheese seats to enjoy an incredible grilled cheese sandwich or a Lunch Box Tart! 

Woody’s Lunch Box

This spot also serves a delicious breakfast to grab before you hop in line for Slinky Dog Dash!

Take a look at our full review of the reopened Woody’s Lunchbox here!

Ronto Roasters

Ronto Roasters has gained a big fan following thanks to its ever so popular Ronto Wrap!

Eating in a galaxy far, far away

There are breakfast and lunch versions, as well as plant based offerings.

Zuchii Wrap

This is a great spot to get out of the sun in Galaxy’s Edge, and it’s right next to the Black Spire Outpost Market, so you can shop right after your meal!

Check out our review of the new breakfast offerings at Ronto Roasters!


The Market

The Market can be found just before you get to Toy Story Land, and it has some great snack options! We found some awesome sweet and savory popcorn when we stopped by recently!

Sweet and Savory Popcorn

This is also the spot to grab Jack Jack’s famous Num Num Cookie!

And they also have the Sunshine Margarita that is sure to cool you down while walking through Hollywood Studios!

Sunshine Margarita IN the sunshine!

Definitely check out The Market if you’re looking for a quick snack!

Hollywood Scoops

If you’re looking for some excellent ice cream while in Studios, look no further than Hollywood Scoops! The spot serves hand-scooped ice cream on Sunset Boulevard.

Hollywood Scoops

They also have morning cocktails, that’s right, MORNING COCKTAILS!


Those will come in handy if you need a little liquid courage to get on Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster!

Check out our review of the morning cocktails at Hollywood Scoops!

Milk Stand

By now, you’ve probably heard about the blue and green milk in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Milk Stand

Some people love them, some people HATE them, but we think everyone should try them! And you can do that over at the Milk Stand.

Green and Blue Milk Coolers

If you don’t like the plain milk, and you’re 21 or older, we suggest trying the boozy versions of the drinks! They seem to be a bit more enjoyable.

Check out our Milk Stand review here!


BaseLine Tap House

BaseLine Tap House is an excellent spot to pick up a nice craft beer or have a mid-day snack while you’re on Grand Avenue! They serve giant pretzels, charcuterie boards, and have some non-alcoholic drinks for those who do not wish to (or legally can’t) indulge!

TA DA!!! The BaseLine BUNDLE

They have a GREAT deal at BaseLine called the BaseLine Bundle where you can get Bavarian Pretzel and your choice of a craft beer in a souvenir cup for $20, that’s pretty good for Disney World!

Oga’s Cantina

We’re finally here! The place you’ve all been waiting for! Oga’s Cantina is easily the hardest reservation to get at Hollywood Studios, especially right now with its limited capacity. But this bar is awesome!

Oga’s Cantina

Oga’s transports you right into the world of Star Wars and the drinks are super fun and strong.

Rodian Ration

We recommend the Fuzzy Tauntaun (watch out for that foam!) and the Outer Rim!
