Halloween seems to mostly be celebrated at Magic Kingdom, but I was so glad to learn about Minnie’s Halloween Dine at Hollywood Studios.
Hollywood and Dine used to be an all-you-can-eat character buffet but due to safety concerns, the menu looks a little different now. I will get to the food in a minute… Could we just admire these costumes first?

The Whole Gang is Dressed Up for the Occasion
My favorite, of course, is Minnie. Her outfit screams Halloween Queen but what else do you expect from this style icon? She bounced around in her polka dot skirt and it was simply adorable.
Mickey also stole the show with his bat suit. The colors were just perfect and he was very playful with his batwing cape, playing peek-a-boo with children and adults alike. He was very prominent in the song and dance numbers as well.
Goofy was spectacular, as always, in his cowboy outfit and interacted so well with us when we asked him about Max. And Pluto went with a minimalistic themed collar but was his normal silly self.
I’d estimate that characters came out in pairs for socially-distant selfies or a song and dance number about every 10 to 15 minutes. I felt like they were out quite a bit.
What to Expect from the Menu
Now back to the food. The salad was a pretty basic house salad and was brought family style.
Your meal comes with unlimited food and drink. I (or the kid inside me) ordered chocolate milk and Cherry Coke.
I’m sure you could have more if you asked. The bread and rolls were really good.
The entree choices seemed overly fancy for this restaurant but I really enjoyed my shrimp macaroni and cheese. Other options were prime rib, salmon, turkey, pork, or fancy mushrooms. Kids had many of the same options but roast beef instead of prime rib.
For dessert, you had the choice of a series of deconstructed “pies.” These were very fancy and tasty pies. You may even like them if you’re not a huge pie fan to begin with.
I chose the chocolate s’mores pie but the other pie options were apple blueberry, cherry lemon, and banana cream.
Our waitress also told us the vanilla crème brulee is excellent. Thank you to Chef Shon who also allowed us to have an ice cream sundae with Mickey sprinkles (normally a kids’ dessert).
