In mid-July, menus mysteriously appeared on the My Disney Experience app (viewable only on Android devices at the time) for Minnie’s Holiday & Dine Dinner, which subsequently opened up a flurry of talk about whether a special holiday character meal was coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Hollywood and Vine Restaurant
Now we can happily say that guests will indeed be able to celebrate the season with Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy (in their “all-new holiday finery”!) from November 7, 2015 through January 3, 2016! The dining experience will feature holiday decor, music, and “holiday-themed food and activities.” Guests can book the experience with or without the Fantasmic Dining Package (however, at the time of this posting, only the option including VIP seating for the Fantasmic! nighttime spectacular is bookable online).
Here are all the Merry Details!
Dinner seatings start at 4:30 pm (closing times vary based on the evening’s presentation of Fantasmic! and park close).
Cost to dine without the Fantasmic option is $50.05 for adults (including tax, not gratuity) and $29.81 (including tax, not gratuity) for kids 3-9, and, per a call to WDW-DINE, 1 Table Service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
Cost to dine with the Fantasmic option is $56.44 for adults (including tax, not gratuity) and, per a call to WDW-DINE, $34.07 (including tax, not gratuity) for kids 3-9, and 1 Table Service credit on the
Disney Dining Plan.
Play n Dine will continue to be on the Breakfast and Lunch menus, and will have the normal Disney Jr characters. As of today, the Minnie Holiday and Dine Fantasmic Package is only bookable as a dinner event.
To make an Advance Dining Reservation, call (407) WDW-DINE, or book online. A credit card guarantee is required at time of booking.
