My Top 5 Places to Eat in Hollywood Studios

Welcome to part three of my top 5 places to eat in the Disney series. This week I pick my top 5 places to eat in Hollywood Studios. Now this one is the hardest because Hollywood Studios is my least favorite park for food. I tend to do resort eating on Hollywood Studio days for that very reason, but I was able to think of 5.

My Top 5 Places to Eat in Hollywood Studios

1. Fairfax Fare (Quick Service)

owed by Disney

If you are looking for a good quick meal between all of the rides and shows Hollywood Studios has to offer this is a good spot. The menu changes a lot but it seems to have fun eats every time I’m there. They used to have a Mac and Cheese hot dog that was really good. The seating is shared with other stands, but it is covered and provides some shade.

2. Hollywood Scoops

owned by Disney

As you can see from the photo above this is right next to Fairfax Fare. There is nothing better than ending a hot Hollywood Studios day with some ice cream from here. I’ll grab my ice cream and head to the night show. I am a huge ice cream fan so I have had my fair share of scoops. The ice cream here is right up there with my faves. I don’t know if it’s because of the Disney magic, but it really is one of my favorite treats.

3. Ronto Roasters

I have three words for you: Ronto Morning Wrap. Finding breakfast in Disney parks can be a challenge but this wrap is one of my favorite breakfast options on Disney property. It is filling and gives you the fuel you need to take on Galaxy’s Edge and beyond. My drink of choice is the Tatooine Sunset a fruity iced tea drink. It is refreshing, sweet, and perfect in the heat.

4. Oga’s Cantina (Lounge)

owned by Disney

Now this may not have a lot of food options, but the experience is really fun. Plus it is air-conditioned. This cantina is found in the heart of Galaxy’s Edge. It is a fun change of pace and a quite of relaxing. I like to go here after lunch for a mid-day break since that is when I have finished most of the thrill rides.

If you have a small party getting reservations can be easier. It is a small space and you have a time limit, so you may end up standing. After a lot of walking that may not be your ideal way to end a park day. There are nonalcoholic drinks and snacks, but they do not have a full bar menu. This is why I use it as a snack break.

5. The Hollywood Brown Derby (Table Service)

I am not a bougie person, but there is something about white table clothes and fine china that speaks to me. I don’t think The Hollywood Brown Derby is not stuffy like other signature dining places on Disney property, but it does have a certain sophistication. This table service location is modeled around the Brown Derby restaurant, with its sketches and menu.

The Brown Derby is known as the creator of the Cobb salad, so as a lover of Cobb salad and history this place is a go-to. The drinks are great as well. Some of my favorite dining locations have great food but the drinks aren’t my fave.
