Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine at Hollywood and Vine

by Casey Morris on January 13, 2015


If you are traveling with younger kids to Walt Disney World, this is a great character meal opportunity. The Disney Junior characters here include Jake, Handy Manny, Doc McStuffins and Princess Sofia. These particular characters are present during breakfast only, lunch & dinner are Mickey/Minnie & friends. (check out info about the lunch and dinner here!) Needless to say, this is always a big hit with the little ones!

Advanced dining reservations are strongly recommended, especially since this is the only character meal located within Hollywood Studios.


As you arrive to check in, you will receive a pager. There are plenty of seats in the shade, around the outside of the restaurant. They also provide lemon water for you as you wait to be seated.


Once you enter, the very first thing you will see is this photo back drop.


Since this is character meal, at a buffet, I recommend that before you go up to the buffet, make sure there are no characters close by. If you happen to miss a character while they are in their rotation, you will have to wait for them to make their way back around. It typically takes an hour for each character to make their way all the way back around. We always ask the hostess that sits us which direction the characters are coming from, and which table will they go to prior to ours. This is a good idea, as once you see the character coming, and know what pattern they will make on their way, you can better plan trips to the buffet!

This breakfast buffet includes such items as pancakes, waffles, baked pastries, breakfast meats and potatoes and an OMELET STATION!! The official Disney menu can be found here:

Lets talk about the reason why my kids love this place so much…..the characters! We have Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates:

Sofia the First:



and Doc McStuffins!! –


Even though the characters all visit the tables, they also have a mini dance party about every 30 minutes or so. The kids are able to join in and dance with their favorite character!
