Hollywood and Vine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been having Minnie’s Season Dine for over a year where each season Minnie and friends visit you while you dine dressed in attire appropriate to the current season. Minnie is joined by Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy and they visit as you dine on a wonderful array of food on a buffet line that changes slightly from visit to visit as well.
When we originally booked this vacation we were unable to get reservations to the event which was disappointing as we were looking forward to seeing the gang in their Christmas attire. On Saturday morning I checked the website and low and behold a reservation was open for Sunday, December 4th at 4:40 PM.
After our resort hopping we left the Beach Club and took the Friendship boat to Hollywood Studios. We arrived a little early so we took a walk around and we came across Chip and Dale in their Christmas attire:
It was then time to return to Hollywood and Vine. Goofy was dressed as Santa and stood inside the entrance to the restaurant. Guests were instructed to meet with Goofy after they were done eating and ready to leave. As guests are seated you are given a post card size laminated picture of Santa Goofy that you are to keep on your table until you are done and then you take it to see Santa Goofy as you exit.
Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy came around to the tables to take pictures:
After dinner we waited for and watched the Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam show at 6:45 PM. The show is a combination of a projection show with the characters from Prep & Landing, fireworks and laser lights.
