Hollywood & Vine is a character dining restaurant in Echo Lake are of Disney's Hollywood Studios.


Hollywood & Vine opened in the (then) Disney-MGM Studios on May 1, 1989 [1]. Originally the restaurant operated as a "buffeteria" style restaurant, offering guest a quick and affordable place to eat. In 1998 however, the restaurant was refurbished, reopening on November 22, 1998 as Hollywood & Vine Cafeteria of the Stars [2]. At this time, the restaurant became a character dining experience featuring Minnie and her friends [3]. This incarnation of the Hollywood & Vine remained until March 23, 2003, when the characters were removed and eatery returned to a traditional family style meal (at this time the restaurant also ceased to operate during breakfast) [4]. The removal of Minnie and other characters was short-lived however, as by 2005 characters had returned. On June 26, 2006, characters from the Playhouse Disney shoes JoJo's Circus and The Little Eisensteins began to appear at Hollywood & Vine for breakfast and lunch as part of the "Playhouse Disney's Play 'N Dine at Hollywood & Vine" [5]. They were later joined by Handy Manny.

In 2010 Special Agent Oso replaced JoJo and Goliath at Hollywood & Vine [6]. Subsequently, in 2011, Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates replaced Leo (from the Little Einsteins) [7]. This was followed by the addition of Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins in June 2014, replacing Special Agent Oso and June (also The Little Einsteins) [8].

Beginning in 2014, Disney began offering a special character meal called "Jedi Mickey" during Star Wars Weekends [9], which featured Mickey and his friends dressed in their Star Wars costumes. Beginning January 4, 2015 Disney began featuring Minnie's Seasonal Dine for dinner at Hollywood & Vine. This special character dining experience was "designed to celebrating the magic of the movies and the glamour of Hollywood." [10]. True to its name, Minnie's Seasonal Dine changes its theme and menu depending on the season. Names for the seasonal dinner parties include: Minnie's Silver Screen Dine, Minnie's Springtime Dine, Minnie's Summertime Dine, Minnie's Halloween Dine and Minnie’s Holiday Fantasmic! Dine [11].

On January 31, 2017, Disney announced that Minnie's Seasonal Dine would begin to offered for lunch as well as dinner, beginning May 14, 2017. Following this change, the Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine will continue to be offered during breakfast [12].

Beginning May 13, 2018, Roadster Racers Goofy replaced Handy Manny at Hollywood & Vine [13].
