HS CS choices with air conditioning

We are in the minority and have had good experiences with ABC, but would consider something different. However, DH is adament it must have air conditioning. What do you recommend?

I guess it depends if you're looking for CS or TS. It seems a lot of the HS CS restaurants are outside. I had to laugh because years ago we met up with friends from Boston at AK in August that year. All's I remember them saying, "is it air conditioned, is it air conditioned??" and that was regarding EVERYTHING, not just a restaurant LOL!

As far as HS, we had a pretty good lunch at 50's PT Cafe a few weeks ago. We had a good server, he did the "role" play but was very mild about it and very nice. We had some good food and definitely some A/C.

Your only CS choices with AC at HS are Pizza Planet and ABC Commissary- all the others are in open areas- some with fans and a roof but none with actually AC in the area you eat.

Backlot express has an indoor area that is air conditioned. We always eat there and it's nice and cool even in summer.

Pizza Planet
Backlot Express

That's it.

Personally, I LOVE eating outside at the Studio Catering Company. Huge roof and lots of seating. Never a problem relaxing there. But if AC is a must, you will be limited.

Backlot Express has always been my preferred CS at DHS. Love the atmosphere here! Lots of detail.
