    On two seperate trips to disneyworld in the last 4 years one of our favorite dining experiences has been Sci Fi Theatre in MGM Studios. Cool atmosphere and great food....very fun! Sci Fi takes you back to those Saturday afternoon "Creature Features" with great diner food. Sitting in a 50's convertible only adds to the experience. For the younger kids, they get the experience of a "drive in". A don't miss dining experience!:banana:

    I agree that the atmosphere is outstanding but I thought the milkshakes left something to be desired. Everyone in our group Mom, Dad, kids; 6, 9, and 12 loved sitting in the convertible and the food wasn't too bad.

    We always love Sci Fi, such a unique experience and we enjoy the burgers. This time I'm trying the Blue salad (can't remember exact name)

    We love Sci Fi too for atmosphere. I agree with Op that the milkshakes are so so, but some on these boards love them!

    and, if you can transfer, you can move to one of the car seats:

    DH refused to get involved with planning, but did have two dining preferences. One was Sci Fi. So we're booked for dinner there on 4/28.

    Question ... Since it appears that a family of four will be seated by 2s, does it make it difficult to have a family meal? Even if so, its just one meal, which isn't a big deal. ^.^

    We're excited either way - was mostly just curious. Thanks!

    The seating is definitely not conducive to conversation, but you can still interact pretty well, and the screen is the main attraction. We made the mistake of ordering the chips & spinach dip, which was really not easy to share with people in the front seat (But perhaps it served them right for TAKING the front seat.) But it is a blast, the overall experience is really fun.

    We are so excited!

    I bet it would be hard to split appetizers. I didn't think about that. :) So, a question? The actually don't show a movie, correct? It's just clips?

    No, it's just creature feature clips and such. If you are sharing an appetizer, just stick to onion rings (We were laughing about it for most of the meal,and you can pass the plate forward and back, but this leads to "STOP HOGGING THE DIP" amongst four very mature adults)

    Can't go wrong with the burgers here! I thought the milkshakes were great, but I don't eat them too often so any milkshake is great to me!

    It is hard to talk to others in your party when they are in front/behind you, but just relax and enjoy the movie screen!
