It’s been more than a decade since I’ve had a meal at the Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Back during my awkward teen years, I reveled in the chance to watch old, science fiction and horror B-movies thanks to Comedy Central’s “MST 3000.” At the Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater, movie buffs and science fiction geeks will enjoy the opportunity to see clips from vintage classics like “Attack of the 50-Foot Woman” or “The Giant Gila Monster.” Today’s teens will probably find the restaurant out-of-date, nerdy and totally not cool.

Since I don’t fit in that latter category and I still enjoy my science fiction every now and again (yes, I did go to a Star Trek convention in eighth grade), I still find this restaurant to be a fun draw even with its short reel of movie clips and vintage news stories, small tables and minimal menu.

In January I had the lucky opportunity to spend two days eating on the Disney Dream Cruise Ship, the Disney Cruise Line’s newest — and biggest — vessel! And when I say “spend two days eating,” I mean it. I’m pretty sure I always had a fork in my hand!

The food options seem endless on the Dream, and with five full-service restaurants, a breezy buffet, 24-hour room service, and plenty of grab-and-go counter service options, they pretty much are. Here’s a little overview of how to feed your face at sea!

Rotational Dining

The Disney Cruise Line assigns dining arrangements via a rotational dining system. This means that guests are assigned to dine at one of the main dining locations each evening, and they’ll “rotate” through the restaurants throughout their cruise. This way, you get to experience all of the main dining options on the ship! Best of all, your attentive waitstaff rotates with you.
