"All of Hollywood Studios that's fit to print"

Limited Time Magic, the series of week-long events at Walt Disney World in 2013, will bring "True Love Week" from Monday, February 11 through Sunday, February 17th.

The week long event will offer guests a slew of romantic events in the parks and resorts, including limited-time merchandise, special entertainment and romantic dinners.

True Love Week will bring the first taste of Limited Time Magic to Disney's Hollywood Studios, as the Hollywood Brown Derby will offer special "Dinners for Two".  These prix fixe meals will offer candlelit dinners for two at the Hollywood Brown Derby.  

Guests can purchase the special meal online at disneyworld...


Welcome guest blogger Jess Furtado with a review of Dine with an Imagineer at the Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant!

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about what goes on back stage at Walt Disney World, this is one way to do it! Dine with an Imagineer is an unique experience where you can have a 4-course lunch at one of the best restaurants on property, private time with an Imagineer, and a souvenir!  Don’t worry; you’ll be able to avoid the screaming kids here because no guests under the age of 10 are allowed. Even the price is reasonable at $60 a person, so you cannot go wrong for the experience and the food! Be forewarned though, Disney will not tell you who or what kind of Imagineer will be there on any given day; it’s a surprise!



We had a chance to try out the new interactive Hollywood Brown Derby special diet menu and it looks really cool.  Check out our video of our experience below.


In an effort to assist Walt Disney World guests that have special dietary needs, the Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney's Hollywood Studios is experimenting with a new interactive menu that is being tested starting today.

From February 22 through 28, the new interactive menu is, "designed to provide our Guests with visibility to personalize menu choices as well as information to better guide decisions."

Guests consult the menu and a chef will come out to the table to discuss the menu, the guests' selection and the special dietary needs that are required.

UPDATE: More info on this test....

Why are you introducing this new interactive menu?

Effective October 26, 2011, Walt Disney World will require guests to provide a credit card to hold a reservation at select restaurants.  If the guest fails to show up for the reservation and/or does not cancel at least one day in advance, Disney World will charge a penalty of $10 per person listed on the reservation.

There are a number of Signature Restaurants and Character Dining Restaurants but this new policy affects the following restaurants in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Guests may cancel their reservations at any table service...


We posted this morning a photo update of what's new in Hollywood Studios this week and I paid special attention to look at Disney's Hollywood Studios Restaurant Dining Menus to look for changes.  Sure enough, there's been a few changes to the menus since our last check so here's what's changed.

  • Barbecued Pulled Pork sandwich replaced with Barbecued Pork Sandwich
  • Turkey leg only removed from menu

Disney has announced that with the recent upgrades to their online reservation systems, guests will now be able to book special dining events straight from DisneyWorld.com/Dining .  The two Disney's Hollywood Studios specific events that are now available are Dine with an Imagineer and the Fantasmic! Dinner Package.

Available on select dates, the Hollywood Brown Derby hosts Dine with an Imagineer.  This special event offers guests the ability to sit, break bread, and converse about behind-the-scenes magic with a Disney Imagineer.  The four-course meal also includes what Disney terms to be a "special souvenir."
