Review Hollywood and Vine Disney Junior Play n Dine Breakfast with Vampirina

Debbie and I were among the first to enjoy the new version of the Disney Junior  Play n Dine Breakfast at Hollywood and Vine.  Here’s our review of the food and the character meets that now include Vampirina!As you enter, you’ll find a themed backdrop that now includes the little ghoul herself.  Feel free to take photos here as you like.

We had an 8:00am breakfast on an 8:00am Extra Magic Hour day.  We were among the first to check-in and were seated very promptly.  The server explained that it was a buffet restaurant, but that she would be happy to help in any way and took our drink orders.  She encouraged us to get a plate of food and explained that the characters would begin shortly.

The Food

The “children’s area,” which is open to all guests, includes pancakes, tater tots, and the famous Mickey Waffles!

Along the hot line were Roasted Red Potatoes, Spoonbread Casserole and Chicken Sausage.

Bacon and Scrambled Eggs are offered in the same section.

Dress up your meal with Salsa, Sour Cream or Cheddar Cheese

Add a bit of spice to your breakfast with Chorizo Eggs, Flour Tortillas and Sausage Gravy.

Buttermilk biscuits are also in this area.  I don’t usually like their biscuits, they aren’t flaky, but are rather hard.  My son used to call them “hockey pucks.”

Salmon Casserole, Ham, Sausage Patties and Corn Beef Hash are available.

Along with French Toast Sticks and Cheesy Potato Casserole are also here.

In the pastry area you’ll find Croissants, Apple Lattic Danish..

Raspberry Danish, Blueberry Muffins, Cinnamon Brioch with Cream Cheese and Chocolate Muffins

You can serve yourself a hot bowl of Oatmeal or Cheese Grits.

It wouldn’t be breakfast without a variety of fruit, right?

Bagels, White Bread and Raisin Bread

There’s also a hot egg / omelet area for special requests!

If you like dessert for breakfast, you can enjoy Bread Pudding or Apple Crisp.

The ice cream machine DOES work for breakfast.

You can also enjoy a variety of cold cereal treats.  It’s a buffet, enjoy all that you desire.

The Characters

Debbie was excited to be among the first to meet Vampirina at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Currently, Vee is only available at Hollywood and Vine for the Disney Junior Play n Dine Breakfast.  I will update Character Locator when she begins offering regular meet and greets in the Animation Courtyard.

Doc McStuffins continues to meet here and offers a regular meet and greet as well.  She was recently removed from Animal Kingdom though.

Sofia the First continues to meet here for breakfast and her regular in park meet as well.

Roadster Racer Goofy is only found here at the Play n Dine Breakfast.  He does not wear this costume anywhere else, but he does appear elsewhere.

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet.  I always say, “It’s hard to mess up breakfast,” but they did succeed at messing up breakfast at the Hollywood Studios Early Morning Magic recently.  The food is hot and there is an ample variety.  They are willing to accomodate any food allergy by requesting assistance from the chef.  If you arrive before 8am and peek in the front door, you might catch all the characters together as well.  The cost was $39 per adult and they did apply our 10% Annual Pass discount.

Anyone excited to meet these characters?

  1. Quick question. If i have an 8:25am reservation at Hollywood and Vine and the park doesnt open until 9 am, can I book my boarding pass for galaxy’s edge as soon as I pass the turnstile?

  2. Is it just me or do you really hate the way the tongs are laying IN the food. Defeats the purpose of even using tongs! I guess you pick the food from the back of the tray?? Lol
