The Hollywood and Vine “Play ‘n Dine” character lunch features brief walk around meet and greets with several hard to find Disney Junior Channel personalities, such as Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Handy Manny, and Little Einstein characters (all of which are subject to change from time to time). Every 30 minutes or so, there is a song and dance number where guest are encouraged to join in.
The interior design has a light art-deco feel from the Golden Age of Hollywood, but at it’s heart, is also a cafeteria complete with vinyl, metal, and formica details.
Standout items from the mostly American cuisine lunch include apple butter and bread, build your own salad with dressings, and various other cold prepared salads such as the Crispy Asian Chicken Salad and the Italian Sub Salad.
There are a couple “soups of the day” items, a create your own pasta station (where someone creates the pasta with ingredients that you select), and several hot meat items (which change seasonally) including salmon, seared beef, pork and chicken, all featuring different preparations such as the Asiago and a Creamy Ranch Chicken, or the Chipotle Citrus Barbecue Chicken. Hot sides featuring Cream Corn Spoon Bread, Garlic Smashed Potatoes, and Sautéed Green Beans.
Don’t forget to leave room for the dessert station, which features mini-desserts such as Key Lime Tarts, Carrot Cake, Banana Cream Puffs , various cookies, and Coconut Macaroons. There also happens to be a chocolate fountain (which is behind the counter, not-self serve), where the chefs are dipping fruit, cake and marshmallow pieces. Lastly, a soft serve ice cream machine with toppings round out the dessert offerings.
