    Who: Valcarce Family

    Where: Backlot Express, Hollywood Studios

    When: June 10th, 2014

    What: Lunch – kids chicken nugget meal with carrots and a cookie, bacon cheese angus burger with fries, southwest salad with dressing on the side, beso sangria, chocolate mousse, strawberry parfait, apple juice, 2 bottled waters

    Rate the following: 4

    Food: 4

    Service: 4
    Atmosphere: 4

    Okay for Children: Fun theming – it’s supposed to be the props, paint and machine department of a studio backlot. I’ve been on real backlots and this is pretty close!

    Okay for Couples: Okay, but not romantic

    Be Sure to Try: Southwest salad – it was the most interesting salad I’d had at a counter service restaurant the whole trip.

    General tips: I’m guessing that this place loads up with humans right after an Indiana Jones show lets out. We were there at 11:00am and it was not crowded.

    The food was decent and the service was what I would expect. The seating, however, was horrible. We were there and a crowded day during Star Wars weekend. Probably not the best place during that time.

    What: Lunch: Double Cheeseburger with fries, Cheesecake, Drink

    Approximate Price of Entrees: $13.82 (Counter service – Dining Plan)

    Rate the following (1-5, five being the best!)

    Food: 4 – Not at good as Peco Bills at Magic Kingdom but everything was good
    Service: 5 – no problems seen

    Atmosphere: 5 – Once you are done eating take a walk around and see all of the old props and signs.

    Okay for Children: Yes – plenty of stuff to look at when you are seated inside
    Okay for Couples: Yes – not as romantic but good location

    General tips: Take your time and walk around after you eat.

    MouseForLess Tip: Unlike other counter services, this one does not open til noon. Thought that was funny since all other open closer to 11.

    Extra_Comment: If you sit outside, you can hear the explosions from the Indiana Jones Stunt Show.

    What: lunch and dinner

    Approximate Price of Entrees: $35 for family of 3

    Be Sure to Try: the sugar free parfait!!.

    General tips: We like this place because the food is always hot, there is plenty of room and they sugar free desserts. We like to sit outside in the time before the parade and we can see when people start to line up and can go get a spot.
