Wish you could take the best parts of each Disney eatery menu and make one super meal out of them all? If this is true for you too, you may just need to plan a progressive supper in your favorite Walt Disney World Park. A progressive supper, or safari supper, means you are enjoying different courses in different locations. This means you can take your time enjoying the meal and soaking in the ambiance while also enjoying the best that each restaurant has to offer and no more. It’s time to hop off the Disney Skyliner at a fan favorite theme park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Let’s plan a Hollywood Studios progressive supper!
It’s lights, camera, ACTION! on this progressive supper journey. We are starting out with a salad at the beloved Hollywood Studios eatery, Backlot Express. This restaurant offers delicious sandwiches and classic sides that are the perfect addition to your Hollywood Studios day. We are huge fans of the Cuban Sandwich and the Teriyaki Chicken Bowl, which are flavorful, hearty, and delicious.
However, today we are here to kick off our progressive supper with a Southwest Salad with Chicken. This romaine mixed salad is topped with roasted corn relish, diced tomatoes, pickles, red onion, and cheese. The salad is even topped with grilled chicken breast and drizzled with a housemaid jalapeño lime ranch dressing. This is a super hearty salad to start off this meal, but we are suckers for the jalapeño lime ranch dressing and will not pass up an opportunity to enjoy the salad. At $11.29 the southwest salad with chicken is comparable to the cost of other salads around Walt Disney World, but it is top-notch delicious.
Classics are classics for a reason. For the soup course, we are going with a classic, Roasted Tomato Cream Soup served at the Hollywood Brown Derby. Located on Hollywood Boulevard in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, The Brown Derby serves upscale seafood, meat dishes, and enhanced classics. This Roasted Tomato Cream Soup is made with lump crab, capers, and fried garlic. The soup is served piping hot and costs $15. We can promise you this tomato soup will be the most delicious and the fanciest take on this classic dish that you have ever tasted.
Now that it’s time for cocktails, head on over to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to enjoy a cold drink at Oga’s Cantina. This watering hole is full of smugglers and some of the galaxy’s toughest characters. Still, we think you should enjoy your progressive supper cocktail at Oga’s Cantina, so you can relax with one of their famous drinks.
The Outer Rim, Jedi Mind Trick, and Bespbin Fizz are all popular cocktails that I have tried and loved. Today, we are opting for the Fuzzy Tauntaun. Peach vodka, peach schnapps simply orange juice with tangerine, and a tingling foam combine to make one delicious and unique cocktail. Coming in at $17 per drink, the Fuzzy Tauntaun isn’t cheap — but is super delicious.
The appetizer course is going to take us to Baseline Tap House. Located on the Grand Avenue in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Baseline Tap House offer so many delicious eats and small plates that choosing just one appetizer is going to be difficult. The California Cheese and Charcuterie Plate is a delicious choice, filled with a range of cheeses, grapes, toasted baguette, and salami — this appetizer never disappoints. However, today we are opting for the coffee-rubbed rib-eye beef puff with olive salad. At only $11, this appetizer is sure to be decadent and is the perfect appetizer choice for this progressive supper dining lineup.
If classic home-style comfort food sounds delicious, you are in luck. For our entrée, we are visiting 50s Prime Time Café. Located near Echo Lake in Hollywood Studios, this restaurant takes you back to a 1950s home. This restaurant is famous for a unique dining experience with servers that remind you to mind your manners as mom taught you and to clean your plate. Dining at 50s Prime Time Café is an awesome Disney experience, but this eatery also serves up some really delicious entrées.
Tonight, we are opting for a classic favorite, Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken. This heavenly entrée consists of perfectly fried chicken served alongside roasted garlic mashed potatoes, chicken gravy, and seasonal vegetables. This entrée costs $25 and comes in a large serving size. Another heavy entrée, this meal goes a long way, so you might even be able to share it with a friend.
Are there more grown-up desserts that I could choose for this progressive supper? Absolutely. Am I still going to choose a Lunchbox Tart from Woody’s Lunchbox in Toy Story Land as my grand finale for this progressive supper? Definitely! These tarts are just too delicious and too adorable not to enjoy as dessert during a day at Hollywood Studios.
Head on over to Woody’s Lunchbox in Toy Story Land to snag a Raspberry Lunchbox Tart as dessert. This gourmet pop tart hybrid is only $4.29. Filled with raspberry marmalade, decorated with colorful raspberry icing and crunchy edible pearls, it is hands-down my favorite flavor of lunchbox tart.
If an after-dinner coffee sounds like it would hit the spot, you are in luck. Head over to the Joffrey’s Stand located near Twilight Zone Tower of Terror to purchase the perfect after-dinner treat. Joffrey’s Coffee is the unofficial coffee of Walt Disney World Resort. The menu is full of classic coffees like lattes, mochas, frozen cappuccinos, and even seasonal beverages.
We suggest hands-down the Shakin’ Jamaican with a flavor shot. This beverage is composed of cold brew coffee with vanilla and caramel, served over ice. If you prefer other flavor shots you could opt for hazelnut, Irish cream, caramel, or vanilla. Whatever you choose, we can assure you this is one delicious coffee that you’ll be searching for again during your Walt Disney World vacation. We hope you enjoyed this delicious progressive supper in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
