    I have booked a table at the Sci Fi diner for 7.35pm. I notice the park closes at 8.30. Will we have to leave the restaurant by 8.30 or can you stay until you have finished your meal? How does it work please?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Mom's Panel, Alison! You've made such a great choice booking an automo-booth for your family at Sci-Fi-Dine-In Theater. You're in for a meal that you're not going to forget anytime soon! The burgers here are out of this world (just like the clips of old alien movies!) and the milkshakes are some of the best at Walt Disney World Resort. They even have a Sci-Fi Specialty Shake that rotates flavors pretty frequently, and the last time I was there it was birthday cake!

    There's lots to see, do, and eat at Sci-Fi-Dine-In Theater and you can take your time to enjoy your meal because you don't have to rush out right when Disney's Hollywood Studios closes at 8:30 p.m., as guests will still be making their way out if you leave the restaurant shortly after this time. Since you'll have been seated behind the wheel of your car-shaped booth for close to an hour by then, you'll probably be close to finishing up your dinner but you certainly won't be asked to leave. This restaurant is an experience, so the Cast Members serving you will want to make sure you've had a chance to fully enjoy everything. When you're done, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular will most likely be happening at 9:00 p.m. if the park is closing at 8:30 p.m. so try and catch that on your way out! Of course, scheduling is always subject to change so make sure to check the My Disney Experience app when you're there.

    Have a magical day, Alison!
