    I am considering dining at the SCI-Fi dine-in restaurant at Hollywood Studios park. Are the movies shown at all scary for a timid 5 year old girl?

    Hi Robert,

    I've been taking my kids to the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater for years, and they always list it among their favorite places to eat at Disney.  The atmosphere (sitting in convertibles in front of a giant drive-in movie screen) is absolutely novel and completely fun!  My kids are almost 5 and almost 7, and neither has ever been scarred by the short films shown.  Obviously all children are different, but as a point of reference, my little guy is definitely sensitive and our resident "fraidy cat", and he loves Sci-Fi. The old clips are certainly cheesy, but not scary.  In fact, when we were there last, they were showing clips that included old Tom & Jerry episodes and my kids were laughing so hard they could barely swallow their food.

    If you are still hesitant, you might want to change your plans to include either a character lunch or breakfast at Hollywood & Vine instead.  During breakfast and lunch, this all-you-care-to-eat buffet features characters from Playhouse Disney (including some of the Little Einsteins) and talented Cast Members who entertain the crowd with Playhouse favorites like the "Hot Dog" song from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

    Whichever you chose, have a wonderful time!
