The Disney characters are a magical part of any Walt Disney World resort vacation, and I’ve received loads of questions regarding what character dining is available and what the experience is like! I’m going to cover off on Minnie’s Seasonal Dine at Hollywood & Vine today and then add to the list over the coming weeks.
Hollywood & Vine offers lunch and dinner and is located inside the Hollywood Studios theme park. Inside, the mouse-with-the-mostest hosts sensational soirees that mix festive music, décor, and tantalizing menu items. Celebrate with popular Disney Characters—perfectly dressed for each season.
Halloween Dine: September – November
Minnie’s Holiday Dine: November – January
Silver Screen Dine: January – March
Springtime Dine: March – June
Summertime Dine: June – September
Restaurant capacity is still reduced in all Disney World dining locations. You can see here just how few tables are inside. All are situated at least six feet away from the next, and plexi glass dividers serve as understated barriers between booths and walkways. Once seated inside the restaurant, you can remove your face covering. All servers that come to your table will wear both a mask and a shield.
The meal is three courses, with shared starters along with a choice of individual plated entrees and desserts. Our food was so-so, to be honest, so you are really paying for the character dining experience. I will say that we were one of the first to dine here after it reopened in late September and I understand from Sister’s family and local friends that the experience has vastly improved already!
Minnie and friends (currently Mickey, Goofy and Pluto) dance through the restaurant, wave, and pose for socially distanced pictures near your table. Guests are given an autograph card at the end of the meal to commemorate the experience. They are doing an excellent job of keeping the experience both SAFE and MAGICAL and we didn’t feel one bit of the old magic was lost. In fact, as parents, this set up was much more relaxed… there was no shuffling everyone out of a booth to quickly pose for a photo mid-bite.
Overall, it is a festive and heartwarming experience for kids of all ages! Minnie’s Seasonal Dine at Hollywood & Vine is one of the most coveted reservations right now! Of course, I handle all of these details for my concierge clients.

I enjoyed hearing from so many of you on Instagram over the course of my trips… those ready to book a new trip, those that had decided to go on trips already booked and those that aren’t ready to travel but enjoyed having a little magic in their feed.
I missed my job so, so much over the closure and am thrilled to be back in the business of making magic! Most aspects of planning a Disney vacation look different and now, more than ever, it is crucial to have the most current, up to date information based on personal experience to plan your vacation! I know these parks inside and out and am a small, one woman show. I hope that my love and passion for Disney shows through in every photo, video and post.
