Is Sci-Fi Dine-in worth doing?

Yes yes yes!!! Sci Fi is a MUST DO every time we go! The atmosphere alone is worth the visit, but I love the food! (I see a lot of negative reviews... but I've never had a bad experience!) I say go for it, I don't think you'll be let down! :thumbsup2

It's fun if you've never done it. Stick with the burgers and shakes, the food is not the greatest.

YES!!!! we always would go for lunch but this time we're on the DDP and going for dinner b/c my dad wants to get our TS $$$ worth so I will miss the burgers but I'm sure the other selections are just as good. As far as the atmosphere we love it. I'm 22 and my brother is 20 and we always pick to eat there every trip. When you have small children they really enjoy telling others that they got to eat at a real drive-in at WDW.

Yes1 The atomosphere is so unique and it is a nice cool break on a hot summer day. We also thought the food was great!

absolutely yes! :yay:

it's a definite must-do for us - the theming, the cool, darkness of the room(so nice after being out in the hot sun!) - burgers, fries, shakes - cheesy movie trailers - what's not to love??!!

We love it for the atmosphere. We haven't gone the past two times and we really, really missed it. I have never been to any meal that leaves you with the same feeling of cool. Its just one more reason to come to Disney. You should give it a try.

We dig it. We did 50s PT in '02, Sci-Fi in '03 and our family chose to do Sci-Fi again in Dec '06, June '07, and Oct '07. If that tells you anything.

Don't let the faux gourmets get you down.

IMO, the food is OK, a little pricey for what you get, but the ambience is great. Its a fun time. My wife and I do it every time we go.

Totally awesome atmosphere. We love this place for lunch and are going back again in June.

We are on the DDP but we plan on paying OOP for this meal as we only get the burgers and sodas. Our kids love this place and can't wait to sit in the car again!

we just ate there for the 1st time Easter week and we loved it, great atmosphere, excellent waitress, food was good, shakes were great. My 2 boys thought it was so much fun. My mom and dad enjoyed it too.

We love the Sci Fi for lunch. It's so cool to go from the hot sun to the cool drive-in. :yes: I think the food is really good too, I''ve never had a bad meal there.

I've been reading LOTS of mixed reviews on Sci-Fi lately. I mean LOTS. The lunch reviews have been generally good, but the dinner reviews are the ones that have me concerned. :scared: We have dinner adr's there in June and I ALMOST changed them then decided to keep them since my dd is DYING to eat at Pizza Planet for lunch that day. :rolleyes: I'm going to cross my fingers and hope for the best. I'll definitely let y'all know what I thought (like anyone cares) when I get back in early/mid June. popcorn::

Why can't you switch Pizza Planet to dinnertime? I mean, what's the difference really in the time of day there? Just a thought....

Plus, the Sci-Fi in the afternoon is the coolest thing because you go from bright sun to nighttime drive in.

There wasn't a lunch reservation available for that day when I called and I just never called back once I made the adr for dinner. :confused3 I'm not thrilled about eating at Pizza Planet anyhow. I can get pizza at home. I'm not really too concerned about it now. Only 32 days away. :banana:

Has anyone brought a young 2/3 yr old here? were they scared of the dark room and the noise ? I have adr's here but I'm not sure my just turned 3yr old will enjoy. (I've been here only poked my head in) popcorn::

I took my boys when they were 2 and 4 and there were no problems with them being scared at all. I plan on going this June with our daughter who will be just a week shy of 3 and sons (6 & 7). The clips are so short that I think you could distract them if you thought you had to.

A very fun place. My little ones were 3 and 5 and loved it there, so did the older ones and my parents.

my 2 year old daughter wasn't scared at all, she didn't pay much attention to the movies though, she liked sitting in the car and played with her brothers and grandparents (my dh, her, and I sat in the middle seat)

We have had lunch here many times and really enjoy it. You should give it a try at least once, it is a fun place to eat. :)

The atmospere is really great but the food leaves a little to be desired unless you stick to burgers and shakes.

We just ate there last friday nite (4/27). I had the shrimp something-or-other and she had the Rueben. Mine was just OK, actually not great. She loved hers. The atmosphere was cool, but I wish they would change up what they show on the screen. I think it's the same loop they've played since the place opened. It would be nice to see trailers from more recent Sci-Fi movies interspersed now and then (Star Wars for example!).

Dinner is on the expensive side. Lunch is do-able though.
