Get ready for a new, limited time breakfast offering at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant.
Already known as one of coolest eateries in Walt Disney World, the science fiction-themed restaurant already holds a significant place of nostalgia at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The venue opened up in 1991 with car hops and seaters donning roller-skates, gliding back and forth to your car seats inside an open air convertible. Those days have come and gone, but the restaurant is still as groovy and unique as ever.
The breakfast offerings that began today (with reservations available until January 23rd) are being billed as an “out-of-this world” experience. For the price point, it rivals some of the “all you care to enjoy” breakfast buffets on property but the immersive surroundings are what set this apart. And make it worth the cost.
Ages 3-9: $12.99
How this works, is that each part receives a pastry platter with muffins, croissants and danishes; 2 of each item. The size of the party is what determines how many platters the ‘car’ receives, but generally it’s one platter per two guests.
Moving past the pastries, you’re able to select beverages of your choice that include juices, coffee and soft drinks; all unlimited refills. Each guest is also able to select an appetizer with two choices; Yogurt parfait with fresh berries and homemade granola or seasonal fresh fruit with berries. During our visit, the parfait was chosen as shown below.
What comes next is the best part, your choice of one breakfast entree. With seven options for adults, and three specific child size/kids menu offerings, there’s a good chance you’re going to find something stellar to satisfy your morning cravings. You have your traditional menu items, and things also get a bit interesting with the Sci-Fi Crab and Eggs. It’s a puff pastry filled with scrambled eggs, crab, asparagus and gruyère cheese with roasted tomatoes and avocado. We went with a fairly more tame choice of Steak and Eggs, substituting the cheesy horseradish potatoes for cheesy grits.
Overall, it kept true to how the Disney Parks Blog made the announcement saying it was “out of this world”, because it was. When you factor in the ambiance, the offerings, the fresh flavors of the food and again.. the ambiance, its a blockbuster hit. Reservations can be made by calling (407) WDW-DINE, and with the holiday season at our doorstep, expect for open availability to fill up quick.
Oh, and don’t worry about trying to take photos in the dimly lit theater. As always, Disney has you covered with a playful photo-op just outside the restaurant. Just don’t forget to pay your speeding ticket at the end of your meal.
