Back on August 30th, 2018, Disney announced that Wilderness Lodge’s signature restaurant, Artist Point, would close on November 10th, 2018 to make way for Storybook Dining with Snow White.
Not unlike this website, Artist Point was very much beloved by very few people. Historically, the restaurant rarely approached anything that could be considered busy, due in part to the high price points and probably in part due to one of Wilderness Lodge’s greatest overall strengths in that it “feels” secluded and out of the way. And expensive, secluded restaurants rarely do well without the benefit of a massive amount of hype surrounding impossible-to-get reservations or a crazy, up-and-coming chef that changes the menu around every other third Tuesday and sometimes on Thursdays. Artist Point never benefited from the panoramic views of California Grill, the foot traffic of Flying Fish, or the waterside seating of Narcoossee’s. Instead, the restaurant stood on its own, sometimes serving incredible dishes and other times, something much closer to disappointment. For today’s review, Artist Point’s storied history is largely irrelevant, but my guess is that the conclusion will bring up some comparisons to what was once offered here.
Our focus returns to Disney’s Hollywood Studios as we take a look at what you can expect to find on quick service menus around the Park, along with some fresh reviews of past favorites along with some recently-added goodies(?). And yes, I am very excited to have to retake the photos of all of these menus after they remove the holiday-specific items in early January. And no, you still can’t buy a giant Hamm sugar cookie.
In our last Studios update, I added new reviews comparing 50’s Prime Time Cafe and Sci-Fi Dine-In, in addition to including a look at all of the current table service menus around the Park.
Woody’s Lunch Box, which continues to operate with just two registers in Toy Story Land, is the Park’s newest quick service. We’ll focus on it first before moving on.
We’ll take a brief break from our omnipresent coverage of insignificant changes at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to turn our attention back to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. You may click any image for a larger version.
Specifically, we’re interested in the Disney After Hours event that debuted at Animal Kingdom on December 4th.
Our attention turns to a number of projects currently underway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. A word of warning to anyone that read last month’s update – the content is exactly the same with slightly different words and pictures. easywdw.com is basically the new Madden only without the microtransactions. Maybe I will start to offer a darker blog theme for $50/year.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the focus and what most people’s eyes are turned towards when it comes to the future of Walt Disney World, not that I’m sure we’re all excited for Reflections: A Rehab Facility coming to Bay Lake in 2k22. I wish I was making that up.
We return to The Wonderful World of Menus™ at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with a look at what you can expect from the various table service restaurants, along with some quick reviews of Sci-Fi Dine-In and 50’s Prime Time Cafe.
Sci-Fi is one of my favorite restaurants on property with its unique atmosphere and reasonably-priced menu that typically focuses on burgers and sandwiches that go for around ~$20 each.
