Disney Hollywood and Vine is a buffet restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It is a character buffet for breakfast and lunch but not dinner. This restaurant is great for families with young children for breakfast and lunch as the Little Einsteins are in attendance. If you want to get up close and personal with June, Leo, Hanny Manny and Special Agent Oso this is the place to be at breakfast and lunch. Dinner is rather quieter and does not have character appearances. So what are the menus at Disney Hollywood and Vine?

So what is dining at Disney Hollywood and Vine like? Breakfast and lunch are of course the character meals and the LIttle Einsteins appeal very much to young children. Dinner is quieter but still busy. So expect a lot of young children and a lot of noise. My 5 year old absolutely loves it. The selection of food is good and there should be something to please everyone, but the quality of the buffet food is pretty average. In fact it has my vote as one of the lower quality Disney restaurant buffets available.
