Hollywood & Vine was great. My husband said it was his favorite of all the four sit-down restaurants we visited. So here is a little bit about our experience there.
The kids were super excited even before we got in. We had breakfast reservations, so when we got to the park we did not have to wait the line. They had a separate entrance for people with reservations to get in. It was a really good feeling to walk right in as everyone else was staying in a long line waiting for the park to open, I won’t lie.
Once in the park, we gave them our names and sat on cute benches as we waited for our table to be ready. As we walked, there was a Disney Junior backdrop for the kids to take pictures, but no character. As soon as we sat down, Jake came by and Truett was in heaven. He loved telling Jake "I have your picture on my shirt!"
We went to the buffet line and got the best frittata we ever had and omelets to order. The kids were happy eating Mickey shaped waffles.
Every few minutes the characters would gather up from and sing a few songs and the kids got to sing and dance with them. Truett went up front for the pirate songs, but stayed by the table during the Mickey Mouse Club House part.
The kids got to meet Jake, from "Jake and the Neverland Pirates", June for "The Little Einsteins", "Handy Manny" and "Special Agent Oso". Surprisingly, Truett had a moment with Oso. It was really cute- he closed his eyes, hugged the bear and didn’t let go until I told him to. I didn’t even think he liked Oso that much!
All in all, we had a great time. Hollywood & Vine is without a doubt on the list of things we want to do again.
Anyone else enjoy that place? What other character places do you like?
