I haven't ate at the BD, because of the prices.

I've actually never done the Brown Deby which I need to rectify, and I don't believe I've ever done the Toy Story Pizza place, but I'm not 100% sure of that

I've eaten at Pizza Planet. Marissa enjoys it there and I think the pizza is decent, relative to Disney pizza that is. The veggie pizza is my fave there. Again, it's good for Disney Pizza (*tries to avoid the rath of a Disney Pizza hate thread*)

My biggest complaint for Pizza Planet is that there's no where to sit.

It does fill up quickly around popular times to eat. I prefer to sit outside when weather permits and enjoy my pizza while I people watch.

For some reason, they didn't try to recreate the pizza place from Toy Story, true?

Was there? I wasn't aware of any reason why Pizza Planet doesn't actually look like the Pizza Planet in the film

On the Brown Derby, you are right Matt, the menu is limited. The kids menu covers the little guys, but the selection for the grown-ups isn't very wide. It seems that's become more common though over the last few years. More appetizers, but fewer main courses. I assume that's primarily due to the impact of the dining plan.

The ambiance is nice, but my understanding is it used to be more authentic. There was more of an attempt to really re-create the atmosphere of the orignal.

And as several have said, the prices are up there. Overall it's pretty good, but I think the other MGM restaurants are a better value.


I'd agree that Pizza Planet pizza is ok for WDW pizza. I also like to sit outside and people watch, and also listen to the Muppet songs they play in the courtyard.

Hollywood and Vine
Brown Derby
Flatbread Grill
Backlot Express

I think that's it. It was either because of money or the food selection. Now it's a matter of what can I actually eat there with my list of dietary restrictions.

Table Service:
Mamma Melrose (But will be dining there in Feb 08)
Brown Derby (only because my friend had bad service there once)

Counter serivce:
I have only eaten at Toy Story Pizza, and ABC Commarsary.

Reason for not eating at the rest is I have only been twice to the studios so far, so just haven't had enough time yet :-)

Brown Derby is mine!

I'm sure I ate there when I was little, but we never cared for it, so I will say I've never ate there, cuz I don't remember!

I've never tried:

Toluca Legs
Mama Melrose's
Backlot Express
Rosies All American
Dinosaur Gerties
flatbread Grill
Hollywood Hills
Hollywood and Vine
Brown Derby

We do like 50's and Sci-Fi - for the fun more than the food.

Where's Hollywood Hills, and what's the food like? This question sounds a little odd to me, because I work in Hollywood, CA. But I digress - what's the food like?

What's the food like at Backlot Express? Both times I was there it was closed. Bummer.

Backlot Express is arguably the best counter service option at the Studios
