Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant: A Disney World Dining Review

The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre is located in Hollywood Studios and brings a perfect ending to a great day in Hollywood Studios. It can also be a perfect place to rest in the middle of the day for lunch. The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre is open for lunch and dinner and Disney Dining Plans are accepted.

What to Expect

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre offers delicious food in a very special atmosphere with its 50’s style drive-in dining. The seating is unique, with small round Flying Saucer Tables or, my personal favorite, convertible-top cars. Did you know, that if you have a reservation, you are guaranteed a convertible? You won’t find an experience like this one anywhere else on Disney property! We recently had the pleasure of going back in time to dine at this amazing restaurant!

As soon as you arrive, you will be whisked away to your “convertible” car (or table). Each convertible will accommodate up to 6 people. Your carhop will be around shortly to get those drink orders. As you take a peek at the menu, the movie is about to get started! You will be taken back in time to the 50’s when going to the drive-in was “the thing”. Keep in mind, these are older movies and ARE science fiction, which could scare younger movie goers. There is nothing that is too intense, but just keep that in mind. My son was 8 and was absolutely enthralled in the entire experience. He LOVED being able to watch the old movies while dining.

Of course, Mom had to ride in the back seat! How rude!

The Menu

Let me just say, we were very surprised by the menu choices here. From pastas and steak to burgers, there is something here for everyone. We, of course, HAD to try the burgers. We were NOT disappointed. These entrees are large enough to share, although no one in our party was willing!

The specialty burger was the SOUTHERN BURGER, with homemade pimento cheese, bacon and a friend green tomato. It was MASSIVE and quite delicious. The “specialty” changes seasonally.

Also ordered from our table, was the BBQ Burger with beef BBQ, onion straws and jalapenos! The little one wasn’t in the mood for burgers, so a child’s chicken tender meal was ordered. Not a crumb was left!


This dessert should not even be legal to serve. A Sci-Fi original, the CANDY BAR was by far, the most delicious dessert I believe I have ever had the pleasure of tasting (and by tasting, I mean completely devouring).
