Backlot Express

Backlot Express is one of the most convenient quick service locations at WDW – it’s right in the middle of all the action, and it was a menu that’ll please just about anyone.

Lots of seating, a simple but good menu, and generally quick service makes this a great spot to stop with the family on a busy day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Picky eaters won’t have a problem here and recently they’ve added a few interesting items to the menu – including some Star Wars themed treats.

Have you ever imagined having a meal in a big, concrete warehouse surrounded by chain link cages containing cool movie props?  How about in an outdoor paint shed with lots of tools scattered all about?  That’s what eating at Backlot Express is like.  It’s kinda neat.


Backlot Express is located in the Echo Lake area of Disney’s Hollywood Studios – right to the left of the Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple stage.

The Backlot Express Menu

Backlot Express serves lunch and dinner daily.

Burgers, hot dogs, and salads are the core menu here.  Of course, you could always opt for some chicken nuggets and Darth Vader Waffles, or a Star Wars themed cupcake for dessert.  Good and reliable food.
