Brown Derby is excellent! I agree that it's one of the best restaurants on property. For something simpler, Sci-Fi isn't bad--just stick with burgers & onion rings. A lot of people think the shakes are really good there.

Dining at the Studios is pretty slim pickin's.

For CS, Backlot Express is quite decent. Had a nice turkey sandwich on multi-grain. Big angus burgers are also good. We were there over the Xmas holidays and had amazing holiday cupcakes for dessert.

Give it a shot.

Thanks everyone for your opinions! I think it's down to Sci-Fi or Backlot

I would choose Backlot.

Personally, if you are on the dining plan I wouldn't waste a TS credit at Sci-Fi when you can get the same thing at Backlot Express. I wasn't impressed with the burgers at Sci-Fi and felt they were not much different than the ones you can get in the park.

This is just my preference and thoughts.

JMHO but the atmosphere at Sci-Fi is the star. The food is actually pretty good and you have to try the shakes.

Sci Fi is definitely a winner for atmosphere. Our girls are 16 & 18 now and still get the kids meal burger as younger one loves the tomato soup. They are accomodating about things like that since it's obvious that they are over the age limit! I've had the turkey sandwich that a PP mentioned and it is quite tasty. DH always gets a burger, which we enjoy as well. Wer will generally pay OOP for this meal as it's not a great use of a TS credit, esepcially with the teens eatiing KMs. Be warned though, that the seating can be tricky with little ones as you usually have to split up when sitting in the cars. There are a few car tables along with some picnic tables in the rear of the theater as well.

ABC Comimissary used to be the pits, but we like it now. It's inside, so that's a huge plus for QS, they have good burgers (same as everywhere else) and some other tasty treats.

We used to like Backlot Express, but we don't like the menu change so much, although it's fun to grab food and sit outside and watch Jedi Training.

We also don't mind Pizza Planet but be prepared with quarters. There's no way a kid can go in there and not play a video game.

Sci-Fi has always been a fav in the past but on our last visit it seemed blah. I didn't like what I ordered (some kind of pasta) so another choice may be ok. Not planning on going back. We always choose Pizza Planet just because we like pizza and the kids can play a few games. The other QS locations aren't that great. Mama Melrose's is on my "to try" list though.
