Jedi Mickey’s Star Wars Dinner at Hollywood and Vine in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This Star Wars dinner has a totally different feeling and appeal to it than its breakfast counterpart.  The breakfast meal is in a really dark environment and features dark characters (except Jawas) and they provide movie clips.  (recently added more content to the breakfast post, so you might want to click the link to check out the additions).

The Jedi Mickey’s dinner provides a much lighter feeling.  It’s bright and vibrant and there’s upbeat music playing.  It features some great classic characters that includes Chip n Dale as Ewoks, Jedi Mickey, Princess Leia Minnie, Darth Goofy and Stormtrooper Donald.  You can meet these same characters in the park during Star Wars Weekends in these costumes, but expect long lines and Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy rotate often.

Jedi Mickey’s Star Wars Dine cost information:

The cost of this Star Wars character meal is $55.99 for adults 10 and over and  $32.99 for children 3 to 9 years of age.  If you’d like to make it a Fantasmic! dining package the cost is slightly more at $59.99 for adults and $36.99 for children.  The meal will also include a FREE digital download of Ewok Chip n Dale. The meal will begin serving at 4:15pm daily and close with the park.

The Disney Star Wars Characters in attendance:

Ewok Chip n Dale are the official greeters of Jedi Mickey’s dinner at Hollywood and Vine.  They appear with a giant logo background right as you enter the restaurant.  They do not move about the restaurant, they are in a fixed location.  Meeting Chip and Dale at Jedi Mickey's Star Wars character dinner

Chip n Dale wouldn’t autograph live for us, but the attendant offered my daughter this pre-signed card.  It was hand signed, not just pre-printed, but Debbie really wanted them to sign a light saber for her.  For $60 per person, I think they should sign whatever a guest wants signed.Chip n Dale autographs at Star Wars dinner

Jedi Mickey

Mickey moves about the restaurant greeting all his special guests at each table.  If you ask him, he’ll even show you the proper way to perform a Force Push.Jedi Mickey at Jedi Mickey Star Wars Diner at Hollywood and Vine in Disney Hollywood Studios

Debbie asked Mickey if he would sign her light saber (discussed below in the post) as “Jedi Mickey,” but he refused to do so.  She begged him a few times and all she could pull out was “Mickey Mouse.”  Boring imo.  I’ve been told there are rules about signing and blah blah blah.  Hello…we’re paying big buck for this experience.  How about a simple four letter word?  JEDI

Debbie asked Minnie to sign as “Princess Leia Minnie” and Minnie was her polite and kind self and signed just as she requested.  Don’t worry folks, this is going on her wall,  We aren’t posting it for sale on Ebay.  I even used a terrible phone pic, so people couldn’t copy all over the internet and stuff.  Shhhhh…your secret is safe with a few thousand viewers.Minnie Mouse as Princess Leia's autograph at Star Wars dinner at Hollywood and Vine

 Donald Duck as a Stormtrooper

Donald is dressed in his stormtrooper costume, but doesn’t wear the iconic mask that they are known for.  He doesn’t look much like a Jango Fett clone though.  He moves about the restaurant greeting guests at their tables.

I forgot to snap a phone pic of Donald’s autograph, but he refused to put “Stormtrooper Donald” on it and just signed the red light saber as “Donald Duck.”  C’mon man!

 Goofy as Darth Vader

Darth Goofy as he’s come to be known moves about the restaurant greeting at tables.  He looks like he was getting dressed in a hurry and forgot to put on his pants.  This is one of my favorite costumes and Goofy is my favorite classic character.Darth Goofy at Jedi Mickey Star Wars Diner at Hollywood and Vine in Disney Hollywood Studios

Debbie asked Goofy to sign as “Darth Goofy.”  Initially he didn’t seem like he wanted to do that.  I guess he thought he’d get in trouble for signing something as simple as “Darth” on a child’s light saber.  Again, if it’s a rule, change it.  It is a dumb rule, if it exists.  Debbie was so excited that he acquiesced to her request that she started jumping up and down.  Characters are a big deal to her at 10 years old.  I think signing as the actual character name actually adds a little magic and fun.

For those wondering, my little girl merely asked the attendant at the front of the restaurant for several light sabers in order to have a complete collection to paste on her wall.

The FUN

The Jedi Mickey’s Star Wars Dinner offers some fun Star Wars music that is scored in a lighter way for little kids to enjoy.  I believe this meal was expecting a younger crowd and it delivered for them. They have some fun little sing-a-long times and happy birthday celebration.  The only thing it lacked was the little parade through Hollywood and Vine with the characters.  Little kids enjoy dancing and parading with their favorite characters.

One fun little niche they offered was a paper light saber.  Each piece of paper is red on one side and blue on the other, so you can choose to support Mickey and Minnie as Jedi Rebels or Goofy and Donald as dark Sith.  The only thing lacking here was tape.  You can roll these up as light sabers, but they won’t stay that way.  Bring along some transparent tape and a marker for autographs

The Food

This is a buffet meal and Disney has accommodated the Star Wars universe by labeling all the foods that would fit into the Star Wars theme.

There’s blue ice cream!

Overall, we had a lot of fun.  My ten year old girl had a blast and met all her favorite Disney Fab 6 characters with no waiting.  It’s costly, but it could be worth it for those wanting to maximize their Star Wars experience, being guaranteed to meet characters that usually rotate all day with long lines and not be worried with fitting them into a tight plan.
T
he only suggestions I could make to improve the experience would be:

  • Allow the characters to sign as their character, not merely their name
  • Have some transparent tape with you
  • Bring your appetite, the food is delicious and it’s all you care to eat.

Do you think this is something your family will attend during Star Wars Weekends months?  Do you think something like this character meal should become a regular occurrence at Walt Disney World?

  1. Loved your review! Thanks for all the Star Wars character meal information. I am hoping to score both the breakfast and dinner options when we go this coming May. When do they release all the events for SWW’s? My plan is to book dining at these restaurants and pray they do the same thing as last year and allow me to upgrade to the 2 credit character meals since we would already have an ADR in the restaurant.

    • This was the first year for this. Typically they release a little information at time leading up. Just keep a check here for info.

  2. I have reservations for Hollywood & Vine dinner with Fantasmic package. Does anyone know how many credits it takes? I’ve been told 1 and I”ve also been told 2…

  3. My husband and I saw you leave while we were sitting on the porch waiting to be seated. He didn’t completely understand why I got so excited when I pointed you out. Anyway, great review! It was a really fun dinner and I hope they do it again next year!

  4. Awesome review! Thanks! My boys are so excited to meet the characters. We usually miss them due to the long lines, so this will blow their minds! Thanks for the tip on bringing tape :)

  5. Yes they should sign as their Star Wars names but there is the reason I believe they don’t. They are forced to practice signing the character name over and over in order to keep having the signing to be the same year after year. Most likely they just don’t know HOW to write anything other than their name in character. That being said Oh well get your butt together and learn a few more words to write shouldn’t be THAT hard.

      • It’s the whole character integrity idea. If you went back the next day and Minnie signed again as Princess Leia Minnie Mouse, the ‘Princess Leia’ part is likely to be different as they would not have trained to have signed as that. It may sound dumb but that will be the reason why they were reluctant to sign.

  6. Thanks for the review! Just booked this for the 27th after reading. Had no idea they were doing this and with an infant and toddler in tow this is perfect so we can enjoy a little bit of Star Wars Weekends!

  7. Thank you for the review. We are doing this and the breakfast in 2 weeks. Hoping to see if you review the star wars dessert party thing. :)

  8. Love the review! I hope they eventually add this as a character dining experience year-round. Especially by late 2015 with the new movie – what a great tie-in that would be for guests. Princess Leia Minnie is too cute!

  9. I sure hope this becomes a yearly happening! I would love to go when I’m there for Star Wars Weekend again but it’ll be two or three years before this happens. Thank you, as always, for the wonderful job on reporting this fabulous event.

  10. Thanks for the review. I will be doing this on Wednesday with my 3 year old twins. It sounds awesome but the two things I’m not happy about are the characters not signing their star wars names and also I made a custom star wars autograph book for my kids with pictures of each character in costume and it sounds like they won’t get their chip and dale pages signed.

  11. Great review thanks! I guess I just don’t understand why they wouldn’t sign as Jedi Mickey, Darth Goofy, etc. it makes no sense. We have plenty of reg. Mickey and Minnie autographs ya know. Guess I’ll have to use the force lol!
