I was recently able to dine at Hollywood & Vine for breakfast with my 2-year-old daughter. She was very excited to meet Doc McStuffins and Sofia the First, two of the newer characters featured at this meal. Jake, from Jake & The Neverland Pirates and Handy Manny also appear at this meal, making it great for both boys & girls! I know one of the most common complaints I hear is that Disney needs more dining selections that appeal to boys, so this one is really great for the younger lads in your group!
I was impressed to see complimentary iced lemon water offered outside the restaurant in the patio area where you wait for your reservation. It was very hot outside, and the refreshing drink was much appreciated. We didn’t wait long for our table, however, about 5 minutes. Upon entering the restaurant, my daughter spotted Jake right away and was very excited. Shortly after being seated, our waitress took our drink order and invited us to help ourselves to the buffet. Before we could head that way, Jake made a stop at our table, to the delight of my daughter. After a few pictures and a high five from Jake, we headed to the buffet.
The meal was good and included all of your standard breakfast favorites. My daughter enjoyed Mickey waffles, fresh fruit, tater tots (that I wouldn’t typically allow her to eat for breakfast) and chocolate milk. I had a nice spread that included sausage gravy over a biscuit, cheese grits, breakfast potato casserole, and a small blueberry muffin, as well as much needed coffee. All of the items I sampled were tasty and definitely worth the price of the meal ($24.99 for an adult; my daughter was free of charge since she is under 3.) During our meal, Handy Manny dropped by our table for a couple of quick pictures. My daughter wasn’t very interested in Manny, but the visit was still enjoyable.
We did wait quite some time to see Doc & Sofia. We had finished our breakfast and waited about 15 minutes for both of them to come around. My daughter was dressed in a Doc McStuffins themed outfit and got lots of fuss from Doc over her clothes. Sofia was a hit as well.
Overall, I would say this meal was great. We enjoyed the food and loved the character interaction as well. Have you dined at Hollywood & Vine since the new characters arrived? What did you think?
