Silver Screen Dine

We arrived to the entrance and checked in via mobile check-in. Our wait time was not too long at all.

Hollywood and Vine February 2020

This photo opportunity is not offered at this time because of concerns with social distancing. If you visit, you are given a chance to take a selfie in front of the backdrop shown above.

After we were seated, we were given a QR menu and the server took our drink selections.

Some rolls were brought to our table to share. They were warm, buttery and crisp. My kids ate almost all of them! Kids just love rolls, bread and biscuits!

Next, came the Farmhouse Tossed Salad Bowl.

It seemed like a typical house salad to me. To be honest, I only ate the tomatoes and croutons. There was nothing wrong with the salad at all. I am just not a salad person.

For our main entree, my husband chose the Prime Rib of Beef, which as you can see from having no picture, he must have enjoyed! It looked delicious and I think it compares to the Prime Rib at The Crystal Palace.

Carved Herb Roasted Turkey Breast

I chose the Carved Herb Roasted Turkey Breast. The turkey was juicy and tender and the garlic red skinned mashed potatoes were creamy and warm. It was a very good “Thanksgiving Day” meal. The stuffing was tasteful and delicious, and I thought the cranberries were a nice addition to the meal.

Kids Roasted Beef

Both of my boys chose the Kids Roasted Beef. My sons enjoyed the roasted beef and described their meals as being, “very yummy.” I had a taste, and it was warm and tender. It reminded me of my Mom’s roast beef she used to make.

Vanilla Crème Brûlée

My dessert was the Vanilla Crème Brûlée. It was every bit as delightful as Marisol described in her review! I loved the rich custard, the cool whipped cream and sweet blueberries. Yum, yum! This dessert never disappoints me.

Characters

The characters at Hollywood and Vine make the dining experience! We were able to see Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Pluto.

All of the characters are dressed to the nines and ready for their Hollywood close up!

Mickey is all dressed up in a blue suit and black bow tie. Doesn’t he look like he was made for the big screen?

Goofy wears a flashy red suit with a bright shirt and cummerbund. I love how Goofy’s outfit makes him stand out from the rest of the characters!

We cannot forget Pluto! He’s a star, too. Pluto wears a blue top hat and silver star.

Minnie is beautifully dressed in pink from head to toe! She wars a pink dress and pink bow tie with a purple sash around her waist. She is looking very pretty and ready for the camera!

Each character will stop and pose for pictures. Have your camera ready because sometimes they are very quick! If you miss them the first time, do not fret because they will come by again.

At the end of our meal, we were given cards with autographs from the characters. My son gave this meal a big thumbs up!

Final Thoughts

My sons enjoyed Hollywood and Vine, but they both said they missed being able to hug the characters and receive actual autographs. I love that Disney has come up with a way to still have character meals and give us some entertainment from a safe distance, but I also miss how it used to be.
