I've also eaten at a few others that I haven't had the chance to write about (because it was long before I had a blog/a forgotten experience): Trails End, Yak & Yeti, 1900 Park Fare, Akersheus, Teppan Edo, Tutto Italia, Chefs des France, and The Wave. So if you have any questions about those please let me know!
When my family was here I was put in charge of picking all of the restaurants that we ate at, but my dad had two requests: Sci Fi Diner, and 50's Prime Time Cafe. We'd previously eaten at Sci Fi Diner when we were younger and came to Disney and the last time my dad and sister came to visit we tried to get a reservation but couldn't. So this time, I made reservations as far in advance that I could and we ended up getting a last minute reservation at Sci Fi.
Sci Fi Diner is one of my favorite restaurants solely because of the nostalgia that it brings for my family. I've eaten here a few times in the past, and each time the food and service is great. Personally, I love the themed restaurants at Disney and the Cast Members who really go above and beyond to stay in theme. Located in Hollywood Studios, right near the ABC Commissary, the second you step foot into the restaurant you're transported into an 80's atmosphere. My dad, and boyfriend, both love the drive in theme & the fact that they play old school movies while you're eating.
Each party is shown to a car, however there are a few picnic tables in the back. Because it is so dark in the cars, it can be a little hard to see what you're eating or to see the menu to try and order food. However the wait staff is very good and can practically recite the menu forward and backward if you have any questions. The only "drawback" that I can think of, in regards to entertainment, is that the film is only about 40 minutes long, so you will see a little bit of it a few times. This was okay by us though, because it was fun to see all the old movies and concession stand commercials.
Every time that I go, I get a burger. I've tried to see if I wanted something else but they have really good burgers. We got the fried pickles, and onion rings for an appetizer because if they have fried pickles you can bet that our family will be ordering them. The food all around was delicious, and we ate every last bite. We couldn't order desert because we didn't want to explode, but that's okay.
Over all, I'll gladly come back to Sci Fi Diner. I think that if I were to have other options that I hadn't been to yet, I would go there, but if I couldn't make up my mind and I was near by, I would definitely pop in to Sci Fi.
Some Disney restaurants that I've written about are: Captain's Grille, Be Our Guest, Steakhouse 55 (in Disneyland), Via Napoli, 50's Prime Time Cafe, and Kouzzina by Cat Cora.
