Hollywood & Vine - anyone been recently?

We have always avoided this restaurant due the (mostly) bad reviews Ive read on here. But having read a good review recently (Dixons on tour ), it made me wonder if its worth a try? We always do the Mama Melrose fantasmic package, but having done this every year thought it might be time for a change. Were not doing Chef Mickeys this year either, so currently not doing any big five character meals.

Any help much appreciated

The food I actually found much better than expected when I last went in 2016, but we had to complain as no character at all came to our table. We were seated by the door.
However we never get DDP now, and the kids are older so we wouldnt go near a character meal as none of them are worth anything like what they charge cash. I witnessed Chef Mickey from afar this year whilst in Contemporary and shuddered at the chaos and price.
I probably wouldnt go back if on dining plan but as I say, I expected food to be dire and it was pretty good I thought.

We went for MinnieS halloween dine in October last year and the food was really good, it was nice to see the characters in different outfits and the interactions were spot on. We really enjoyed it.
Cape May breakfast was also excellent .

I havent been but interested in the responses you get. I do my research and whilst I do not have sky high expectations, I decided this was worth a try at least. I also chose it because I have already been to HBD and Mama Melrose, didnt really like MM and HBD was ok but we dont need to rush back.

We are doing Fantasmic package with a 6pm-ish dinner, I prefer the afternoon / evening characters to the morning ones as I dont know who they are.

Agree about the prices if not on the dining plan - pretty scary! Weve did Chef Mickeys four times and think its only been enjoyable once (for us adults) 😊. Good to hear the food was ok at H&V! Many thanks!

Thanks for this! I think Im going to give it a go! For July their outfits are beach party themed, which will be nice to see 😊. Have always fancied the Cape May one, but cant justify getting over there first thing and cant get my lot to stay anywhere other than POFQ. 😉

Mama Melrose has been hit and miss for us - had a couple of really good meals, but a couple of dire ones too. We tried HBD on our last trip and really liked it, so are going again this year, but Ive not booked the fantasmic package as the timings dont work. So, H&V it is. Unless you have really young kids, you probably wouldnt know the breakfast characters. Well be doing dinner - quite looking forward to trying something new 😊

We did a 10.30 breakfast , we went to HS first as it had the 6am opening . It was lovely and well worth it .
