    Can adults and children over 9 years of age order from kids’ menu at Sci-Fi Drive In Theater Restaurant?

    Welcome to planDisney, Tim!

    I'm thrilled you plan to dine at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant! Located inside Disney's Hollywood Studios, it is one of the most uniquely themed restaurants I've ever experienced! As its name suggests, the restaurant is designed to look like a classic drive-in movie theater from the 1950s, complete with vintage cars that Guests can sit in while they dine. Isn't that the bee's knees?! 

    Tim, you've asked a great question that I, too, have inquired about while dining there! In my experience, there's never been an issue, and I've been able to order from the kids' menu at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant. Of course, this is at the restaurant's discretion, but usually, Cast Members are wonderfully accommodating and have allowed me to order from the children's menu when I've eaten too many Mickey-shaped treats and am not feeling as hungry. Another great option, if you're not feeling as hungry, is to order an appetizer that catches your eye as your meal. 

    There's so much to see and do while visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios, and if you plan to spend the evening there, I hope you watch Fantasmic! This nighttime spectacular combines fireworks, music, and water projections and brings favorite classics to life with legendary storytelling! 

    If you're thinking about both, perhaps consider the Fantasmic! Dining Packages, since Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is a participating restaurant. With the package, Guests receive an entrée and their choice of appetizer or dessert, along with one voucher per person for guaranteed seating at Fantasmic! in a reserved area. Please note that with the dining package, although adults may be able to order from the children's menu at the restaurant's discretion, they would still be charged the adult dining package price. 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Tim!
