    Hello! How long is a meal at Sci-Fi Dine-in? If I have a reservation at 4p, would I be able to catch the 5:30 showing of Frozen with a lightning lane?

    Hi there, Anna! Thanks for bringing this great question to us at planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you're headed to The Most Magical Place on Earth next month! It sounds like you have all your Donald Ducks in a row and you've already made your advance dining reservations. Now, all that's left to do is get excited! Anna, I'd love to help you with your reservations so you don't miss a minute of the magic.

    The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is one of my favorite locations to relax with some great food in Disney's Hollywood Studios! In my experience, I like to try to schedule about two hours for my dining reservations. This gives me enough time to get checked in, order our food, and really take in the atmosphere. However, an hour and a half may be possible if you're prepared. I have a few tips for you if you'd like to enjoy your meal but also make your experience a little faster so you're on time for any future reservations! 

    • Be sure to check in for your advance dining reservation on the My Disney Experience app! You'll receive a notification when your check-in window opens and I'd recommend checking in as early as you can.
    • Let your server know of any upcoming reservations once you're seated. Communicating with the Cast Members is the best way for you to manage your schedule.
    • Have the Guests in your travel party view the menu beforehand (either online or through the My Disney Experience app) so everyone's ready to order right away. This can help cut down your wait time and allow you to enjoy your meal sooner!
    I'm sending you all the faith, trust, and pixie dust for your upcoming trip, Anna! I think you're going to love the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant with its incredible atmosphere and delicious food (you can't go wrong with a burger and milkshake!). If you have any other questions, please visit us again!

    You've got a friend in me!
