5 Best Quick Service Dining Locations at Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is known to be one of the most consistently busy parks in Walt Disney World. With crowd-drawing areas like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land paired with spectacular live-action shows and a large number of character meet-and-greets, this park is a fan-favorite for all ages. Since the attractions in Hollywood Studios are so popular, they can often times come with a long wait.

Rise of the Resistance and Slinky Dog Dash are just two attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that typically have posted wait times over 1 hour all day.

Besides bringing your patience and budgeting for Genie+ in order to make lightning lane reservations, another way to save time is to opt for quick service dining at the park for at least one of your meals. Since the iconic table service restaurants at Hollywood Studios like Hollywood Brown Derby and Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater are the ones that usually make the headlines, let’s explore the five best quick service spots that will keep you fueled for a day full of fun.

1. Rosie’s All-American Café

If you find yourself on Sunset Boulevard, the best place to refuel without a long wait is Rosie’s All-American Café. Serving American favorites like burgers, chicken tenders, and fries, there is ample covered seating available along this iconic stretch of Hollywood Studios. If anyone in your party is craving pizza instead, pop over to the adjacent Catalina Eddie’s for personalized-sized pies, breadsticks, and salads.

2. PizzeRizzo

Speaking of pizza, PizzeRizzo is a bit of a quick service hidden gem. Located in the corner just past the theater for Muppet 3D Vision, patrons can choose to sit outside under the fan or cool off from the heat in two floors of seat-yourself tables and booths. The pizza, including the gluten-free crust, is actually delicious and we had no problem finding a table when arriving between 12:30-1:00PM.

This veggie pizza on a gluten-free crust from PizzeRizzo was not only delicious, but also filling.

3. Woody’s Lunchbox

If you want a themed meal without taking the time to sit down at Rodeo Roundup BBQ, Woody’s Lunchbox is your place! With a delicious family-friendly menu in the heart of Toy Story Land, Woody’s Lunchbox will please everyone in your party.
