When I go to the Walt Disney World Resort® Hollywood Studios theme park, my son and I just love to eat in the Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater restaurant in the car tables! This restaurant is reminiscent of times gone by when drive in theaters were in their prime. When I was a little girl my Grandmother always took our family to the drive in theater, it was named the Chief Drive-In Theater. I just loved to go there it was such a treat! Since in the old days we did not have any electronics to play with. No, not even a car phone. The Drive-in always had good food and popcorn, and entertainment for the whole family!
The Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater has the atmosphere of the old drive-in theaters. It re-creates the fun I had as a child. The tables are made to look like cars from the 1950’s. They are very realistic in taking you back to the earlier time. There are also speakers made to look like the ones in the real drive-ins. When you look up there are stars in the sky. There is also a screen with cartoons and science fiction trailers which play in a continuous loop.
In my opinion the food is very good and not too expensive. Burgers, Reuben Sandwiches, ribs, shrimp pasta are served. There is also macaroni and cheese for the kids. I just love their milkshakes! They are just super!
The next time you go to the Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World® give the Sci-Fi a try! There is also a 1950’s replica of a car outside for a souvenir picture. I think you will really think it is an amazing atmosphere, and do not forget to order one of those fantastic milk shakes! The only thing missing is the popcorn!
