Hollywood and Vine

will soon be at WDW on the DP

reserved a dinner at Hollywood and Vine because of the Fantasmic package..... but having 2nd thoughts given some of the food reviews and the pictures show an unappealing decor

are we wasting a sit down credit here, even with the Fantasmic package?

have seen some reviews to indicate the food quality has improved, can anyone confirm?

Thanks!

The food wasnt bad either ..plenty of choices for everyone...we are going in May once more so we can get the Fantasmic Pkg and we dont mind a buffet..
Hope you go and try it..

I'm not sad that we tried it, because at least we got to form our own opinion. With that being said, our opinion is that H&V is

We just came back and I honestly thought I was going to hate the food based on our previous experience. We went back because our kids absolutely love the characters.
I was pleasantly surprised that we all found something we liked.

There were a couple pasta dishes and short rib dish that I went back for seconds.
The desserts wasn't bad either. I think they updated it recently. Now they had some red velvet cupcake, raspberry or blueberry cheesecake (I don't remember), cookies, brownies, and of course the soft serve ice cream.

Then again we are "those people" who actually enjoyed LTT dinner...
So I guess you just have to go and try it for yourself

ps: the character rotation seemed to be slower than our previous experience. we finished our lunch and still missed 2 characters. Our lovely CM server ended up calling the characters over for us because we had been sitting there for a long while and our kids were falling asleep.
