Sci Fi Drive in Theater
 
Does anyone know anything about the Sci Fi Drive In? Is it worth it? I'm going in August to WDW and I'm stoked! Thinking of trying the Sci Fi. Thoughts?

We like it. The food is pretty good and the atmosphere is great. It is not great if your party is an odd # and you get a real car. We are a party of 3 and someone would have to sit in the backseat all alone. We try to get the cars that have tables rather than seats. Not a place that is set up for conversation. But you are at a drive in....who talks during a movie! Lol

We really enjoyed Sci Fi. It had a cool atmosphere. It had yummy burgers and shakes. :thumbsup2

There are very few good places to eat at DHS, IMHO, so I am glad Sci Fi is there for sure! ::yes::

We only have lunch there and it is one of our favorites. We all get the burgers and shakes, plus the different movie clips are great....my kids really like to laugh at the cheesy horror flicks. You are going to really have fun :goodvibes.

Ask for a table
 
My wife and I enjoy the food and atmosphere at the Sci-Fi as a change of pace. But we do not like sitting in the "cars", so we always ask to sit at one of the tables in the back. We never have to wait any extra to get a table and it makes our meal a little bit more enjoyable.

Agree with all of the above statements. Really fun, good food (especially the milkshakes, cant be beat) but definately not a place for catching up with family or discussing your favourite part of the day. Our server was fantastic and made it a really authentic "drive in" experience.

If you check out my dining review I have a review on Sci Fi!

I go to Sci-Fi every year. It's one of my favorite restaurants! The burgers are great and the atmosphere is awesome. I suggest making reservations because they sometimes won't take walk-ins.

We always go there for lunch and have onion rings, burgers and dessert. We love the juicy burgers and these are the only burgers we actually eat on vacation--yummy! It is pretty dark and you can only see with the car lights, but the atmosphere is so different. It's not a gourmet experience, but it's fun and worth the experience.

Thanks all!! I'm more excited now. I think I will make a reservation for lunch on a day that I get a magic morning hour! It will be for two. Now to figure out which resort.....

It's really a fun restaurant, great atmosphere.. however, if any of your party is 'pooh sized' the 'cars' are very tight. You'll probably want a table in the back.

pauliewog 01-25-2013 11:45 PM

That is hilarious! Pooh sized! I think I'm more goofy sized!

our family loves it and its a must do on each trip. I recommend the first lunch of the day around 11:00- 11:30 before they start getting full with people

I will keep that in mind!! Thanks!

Cool. I have reservation there. We are thin old folks with drive-in nostalgia, married long enough that we don't have to talk. Already talk too much! Want to sit in the dark with a glowing fufu drink and some onion rings!

We have never been for a meal but always reserve it for a milkshake. The milkshakes are out of this world. I will say this past year my son got the buffalo chicken appetizer because we were there at 9:15 at night and he loved it. We might put it on the menu this year for an actual meal.
