Even though we’re in the middle of summer, some of us have started to have visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads. If you’re wondering about holiday dining plans at Walt Disney World Resort, we’ve just added one more option. Reservations open today for Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood & Vine—a new dining experience taking place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on select dates between November 7, 2014 and January 3, 2015.
Celebrate the holiday season with Minnie Mouse as she hosts a festive dinner with her friends Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and special guest—Santa Goofy. Holiday-themed décor, food, music and activities make Hollywood & Vine the perfect place to deck the halls with family and friends.
Reservations can be made by visiting DisneyWorld.com/DINE or call 407-WDW-DINE. Cost is $46.99 for adults, $27.99 for children or counts as one table-service entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan. Fantasmic! dining is also available with Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood & Vine and is $52.99 for adults and $31.99 for children (plus tax and gratuity).
Wondering if anybody could verify this for me. We have reservations on December 12 at 8:25 PM. I was told by two different cast members that this is part of the minis Christmas party meal. However when I made my reservations it was under the regular Hollywood and Vine section. There is one place that says it is a character meal and then there is also one place that says it is not. Can anyone confirm whether this is truly a character meal or not please
Will the characters be there for Thanksgiving Dinner as well?
Any menu yet?
Do we have a menu yet? We are so excited!!!!
The reservations for the Minnie special event only go through 6:30. I have a reservation for 7:10 under the normal Hollywood & Vine listed on the reservation page. Will he characters be changing out between these two times, or will we see the holiday characters?
I called and received confirmation that Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood & Vine Dinner Fantasmic! is one dining credit
I was only able to make reservations at 2.30 Xmas eve, will it still be Minnie’s holiday dine?
If you booked at Hollywood and Vine for dinner on or after 11/7 you will have the Minnie Dining experience for your trip. I have called the Disney line to confirm. We have a vacation and just happened to book Hollywood and Vine 180 days in advance before even hearing about the Minnie Holiday Dine and I wanted to know if we would be able to participate as we have a reservation for 11/8 at 4:15. The castmember told me that yes, we would be able to participate since we were booked for dinner. Keep watching for reservations. Disney says that people cancel all the time and you can grab those reservations. We were able to get Be Our Guest and Cinderella’s Royal Table by doing this.
I was lucky and snagged a spot on 12/2 at 6:10PM and the only reason I think I was able to do so, is because there is no Fantasmic! that evening. However, it is MY birthday! So it will be a fun evening for us and my kids first trip to WDW.
Is it worthwhile to check daily for cancellations for this special dining event?
We are on the dining plan. I heard that the dinner without fantasmic is 1 credit and with fantasmic it is 2 credits. Is this true? I can’t find any info on it.
As an annual passholder, just received email about this event. Tried online and called Disney dining to make reservation. VERY DISAPPOINTED no time available for length of event.
We have our reservations for Thanksgiving Day. Looks like fun.
Will there be PhotoPass photographers at Minnie’s Holiday Dine ?
Our reservation is confirmed for December 28th! Super excited!!!
Just booked! I have been having amazing luck with reservations this trip!
Any word on when Christmas information will be available for Disneyland?
Just called to try to book and was told it’s not offered from Nov 8-17, so any of you with reservations during that time, it appears it won’t be for the Minnie event. I’m bummed because I’m only there through the 10th 🙁
I was able to snag a reservation for our upcoming November trip. Since it said “select days” I called to verify. I was told that my reservation was for the Minnie’s Holiday Dine. I asked why it said select days & she told me that it says select days because it only goes for a limited time. If the time is available grab it. Dinner will be with Minnie & friends!!
Can anyone confirm the dates that this dining are available? It says select dates and on the dining site it still only lists it has Hollywood and Vine. Is it only certain days of the week? I love HV anyway and I’d love this holiday experience. I want to book sooner as opposed to later, but don’t want to reserve for
A date that this isn’t going on..
Got our reservation for NOVEMBER 16TH so excited for this!!!
I love this idea! Great job Disney!
Will breakfast and lunch still be playhouse Disney characters?
I have reservations on 11/16 for Minnie’s Holiday Dine and fantastic. Can I use our dining plan for this? Also, we may or may not make fantastic…..any way we can do dining only?
Is this a Buffet? And are only these items available? (Peel n’ Eat Shrimp, Honey-Bourbon Glazed Turkey, Lobster and Shrimp Macaroni & Cheese, and Holiday Desserts and Chocolate Fountain)
I have a 5:55 reservation at Hollywood & Vine on November 16, will this include Minnie and friends since the reservation does not mention it?
Just booked for December 15th! So–excited!! When booking–just shows up as dinner for Hollywood and Vine. Is this correct?? Don’t want to miss the Disney Christmas magic………
Just booked for December 18th family vacation and my baby girls 1st birthday!!
We have booked into Hollywood and vine on Christmas Eve at 6.50 will this include minnie’s holiday dine? Thanks
Unfortunately, there seemed to be very, very few tables available on November 7, the only possible day we can go. To get up at 4 am our time and hit refresh for an hour with no luck, then have it sold out on the phone in less than 5 minutes was incredibly disappointing. If you are holding back tables for various blog reviewers, I would suggest you hold a preview night for them so we paying customers actually have a shot. The description makes me so sad…we love Christmas activities.
For me, on my 180th day (Feb visit) the dates aren’t available at all for the Hollywood and Vine/Fantasmic. Please advise when that will be released
Where does it mention that this is a Dinner meal? Maybe I missed it. Is this just a Breakfast or Lunch Character Meal? Thanks
Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood & Vine is only offered at dinner.
And thanks in advance for any advice! I booked this trip a year in advance to bring our youngest for the first time (3 boys) and our parents too (party of 7)!
I really want to get reservations to this for Nov 15, 16, 18, 19 or 20. I have been trying for 2 hours! They seem to be gone online the moment they came out and I have called 4 times without luck! Any advice?
Will the offerings be the same as typical Hollywood and Vine items, or will the menu be adjusted for this event?
The menu will be festively themed. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more details!
I’ve been checking every day for this to open up once I heard the rumor of it. I was able to book it this morning for 12/21. One thing it doesn’t say is if you can use the Disney Dining Plan for this. Do you know if you can or not and how many credits it would be?
Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood & Vine counts as one (1) table-service entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan.
So excited! Just made our reservations for November. We did get the dinner without the Fantasmic – ok by us we have little ones that are afraid of it.
If you look at the menu for dinner under Hollywood and Vine, it is called Minnie’s Holiday & Dine at Hollywood & Vine, and it features: Peel n’ Eat Shrimp, Honey-Bourbon Glazed Turkey, Lobster and Shrimp Macaroni & Cheese, and Holiday Desserts and Chocolate Fountain. Should be fun and delicious!
Hope you have a jolly time! 🙂
Hi, again! I wanted to switch to 11/21, and there were no times available for Minnies HD at H&V, but there was openings at H&V, so I snagged one of those. Does that mean I would get the character experiences but not the Fantasmic seating?
Curtis, you may want to call. I’ve read on some other groups that you can call and book the non Fantasmic version but the ability to do so online does not exist yet. So I would call so you don’t miss out on reserving!
It looks like non-Fantasmic reservations are available under the normal Hollywood and Vine restaurant reservation. Normally dinner is not available but now it is.
Sounds great! Hope they have it in 2016 too! (just to let you know…your dates are for 2014-2015)
Thank you so much! I just snagged for Christmas Day and a November date! We are Christmas fiends!
When will online booking for the non-Fantasmic Minnie’s Holiday Dine be available? The “VIP seating to Fantasmic” version is the only one available at the moment.
Just booked for my honeymoon! Can’t wait to share this specia time with my new husband!
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I hope you have a wonderful honeymoon at Walt Disney World. 🙂
