Momma Melrose or Hollywood & Vine for Fantasmic package

This is my first experience with the fantasmic package. We usually eat at the Sci-Fi when we are in Hollywood Studios but wanted to try something new. We are going in July.

We've never done Hollywood & Vine, but we love Mama Melrose. We have eaten there twice, once in 2007 and then again this past November. Had good service both times and great food.

I've only had breakfast at Hollywood & Vine (and love it...not sure why it gets a bad rap as the breakfast buffets are pretty much all the same)

Still, I would pick MM. It's not Italy-Italian or US chain restaurant-style Italian...it's more East coast US local Italian joint style if that makes sense.

Now some person I don't even know reminds me there's no eating, drinking, smoking, or flash photography allowed in my dream.

MM... back in 2010 my husband and i picked H&V for our Fantasmic dinning and were not impressed. I normally can deal with underwhelming buffet food due to the fact I have so many choices, but out of our total 10 days of eating that meal sticks out as the worst.

MM hands down. We always eat here when doing the F dining package. I love the flat bread pizzas while DH and DD likes the chicken parm. We have only dined at H&V once and we were so disappointed in it that we haven't returned.

Yes, it is available as either a lunch or dinner package. If you are on the DDP it is 2 TS credits.

Mama Melrose wins out for me, as well. It is a special restaurant for my husband and me and the only restaurant that we absolutely insist on eating at each trip (that is not to say that it is the best restaurant on property, but we have such special memories with it that it has become "our place"). All that aside, I would still pick Mama Melrose over Hollywood and Vine. H&V would be my last choice of restaurants at DHS.
