Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater: Fabulous or frightening???

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater: Fabulous or frightening???

We absolutely LOVE dining at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater! This is at Hollywood Studios and a must-do for our family.  We always like to find a place to relax during our park days, and it is not always feasible to go back to the hotel to kick our feet up for a bit.  Sci-Fi is a great place to get out of the sun and crowds to relax somewhere dimly lit and quiet.

When the cast member seats you, you enter what appears to be a 50’s style drive-in theater complete with a star-filled sky and classic cars that also serve as your booth.  On the screen, there are old, campy-style scary movie clips and cartoons playing.  This is why I have heard some parents say that they think it would be too scary for their kids.  I wouldn’t let the scary movies prevent you from trying this place out! They are of the old black and white “scary” movies with the giant spider or oversized woman attacking the town (the kind of movies that Mystery Science Theater 3000 makes fun of).  Our youngest gets frightened easily, and he thinks the movie clips are silly.

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is considered a Table Service meal if you are using the dining plan.  Even when using the dining plan, we have always paid out of pocket for this experience because we usually like to get milkshakes, beer, and a couple of appetizers.  We have not ever had an actual meal there so I can’t speak for the entrees, but the fried pickles and spinach artichoke dip are amazing!

Our kids have always been seated in the front seat with Dan and I in the back seat.  The cast members always make a huge deal about if the kids have their drivers licenses which the boys think is hysterical.  They will usually give the boys their own drivers licenses to take home with them.  Along with the ambience, my favorite part about dining here is that the kids are usually so captivated by the movie clips that they don’t even want to talk.  I know that makes me sound like a horrible mother, but it is nice to disconnect a little and just relax.  Check it out and let me know what your thoughts are on Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater!

Best Kept Secret in Animal Kingdom Park

Best Kept Secret in Animal Kingdom Park

Walt Disney World is full of activities to keep your family busy from sun up until sun down.  Matter of fact, we have spent roughly 1.5 months collectively in the World and still have yet to do everything.  While we all want to do and see as much we can on these magical vacations, let’s face it, we aren’t as young as we used to be! I don’t know about you, but I often wonder where my children get their endless energy.

With that being said, I have the perfect solution! The best kept secret at Animal Kingdom Park is The Boneyard.  Our boys LOVE this area (We may love it even more)!  It is a giant play area with rope climbing, slides, caves, and even a large area made to look like an archaeological site where the kids can unearth dinosaur bones.  The best part is that the majority of it is shaded with areas to sit! There is only one way in and out with a cast member standing duty monitoring who comes and goes.  They don’t let any kids leave by themselves so you don’t have to worry about them sneaking away from you.

Our boys ask to go here every time we are making our plans for Disney World.  It makes the must-do list for Animal Kingdom! So, next time you are there, go ahead and take a moment to put your feet up while your children run freely and burn some of that wonderful energy….the only downfall is that they don’t let you take in beer.
