Woody’s Lunch Box in Hollywood Studios Park serves foods that bring back childhood memories of old. Featuring tater tots, pop tarts, and sandwiches, you can also count on Babybel cheese and ice cream floats. Some sophisticated flavors may be too sophisticated for your little one. But other flavors may be just right! Here’s our take on meals at Woody’s Lunch Box.
Woody’s Lunch Box Atmosphere
Adding to a slew of Quick Service Restaurants at Hollywood Studios, Woody’s Lunch Box serves up lunchbox favorites. Everything from kid-friendly sandwiches and sides to one of the Best Snacks at Walt Disney World, Woody’s Lunch Box Pop Tart. This restaurant has an outdoor counter service window that offers mobile ordering, which you will want to take advantage of.
This space has minimal table seating outside. Very minimal. The space for the restaurant can seat may be close to 100 people, but that’s it. So consider that when deciding if you’re going to order food and sit, or grab food on the go. The lack of indoor seating will end up being an issue in the summer months when other Hollywood Studios’ quick-serve locations like ABC Commissary and PizzeRizzo both offer air conditioning. But chances are this fun, cute land and restaurant will always be on our fall schedules when the outdoor air is friendlier.
Woody’s Lunch Box Breakfast Menu
Need a hearty breakfast before your day in the parks? While we love our Disney Starbucks mornings in the parks, it was great to be able to add a little variety to the mix. The Woody’s Lunchbox Menu offers breakfast bowls, sandwiches, and everything else you might find in a kid’s breakfast.
Woody’s Lunch Box Tips For Breakfast
Arrive at park opening: Ride the Slinky Dog Dash and then head over to Woody’s Lunch Box. If you wait until later you may not have a place to sit. This isn’t street food, so you can’t eat it while you stroll.
Coffee: There is a cold brew coffee option at Woody’s Lunch Box, but both times we tried to sample this coffee, they were out. That said, you should probably try and grab your coffee at Starbucks on the way in, or plan to grab it later.
Mobile Order: Woody’s Lunch Box has a mobile order option and we highly recommend you use it. Mind you, many of the people using mobile order, don’t technically know how it works.
Here’s the rundown.
1. Order and pay for your food in the app
2. Wait ( like the app instructs) for the app to update and say “your order is ready.”
3. Go to the Mobile Order pick-up window and let them know your name because your food is ready.
You may have to trudge through a sea of people who are waiting for the orders at the window who have not yet received the Step #2 instruction. They will surely mention to you that you need to wait to be called. But never mind them. People with mobile orders don’t wait to be called. You simply let the girl at the mobile window know your name and that you’re there for pickup.
Woody’s Lunch Box Lunch and Dinner Menu
Along with the sandwiches below, you can order a macaroni salad, Babybel 3-pack of cheese, or tomato bisque soup as a side. All three of these sides are pretty nice. The tomato soup especially is such a treat and highly recommended. And you really can’t have a lunch box-style meal without Babybel. Check out Woody’s Lunch Box Lunch and Dinner Menu for all the current offerings.
Smoked Turkey Sandwich
Thick-sliced Smoked Turkey Breast, Lettuce, and Tomato with Dijonnaise spread served chilled on Multigrain Bread. Pretty decent and hearty if you’re hoping to forego dinner, but nothing thrilling here. Just typical lunchbox food. Not that it’s bad, it may be exactly what you and the kids are looking for, without the pain of making it yourself.
Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich
The three kinds of cheese on this sandwich are cheddar, provolone, and American cheese. It’s a lot of cheese. While still good, we agreed that if this was a different combination of cheeses this sandwich would have been amazing. The bread is garlic bread and quite lovely. Tip: If you dip this sandwich in the tomato basil soup it tastes like pizza!
BBQ Brisket Melt
Shredded Smoked Brisket, Pickles, and Tangy Barbecue Sauce between Melted Cheddar and Monterey Jack on Grilled Sourdough Bread. G didn’t seem to love this sandwich, as the meat was sort of a tough roast beef style thin. Melanie enjoyed it though as the flavors meld well with brisket, Monterey cheese, and BBQ on sourdough. Other grown-ups we know also loved this sandwich, so it’s definitely worth a try if you can stomach the 13-dollar price tag.
These Tater Tot Nachos combine tater tots, chili, cheese, corn chips, sour cream, and chives. These come in a pretty decent-sized bowl and are the showstopper for completely indulgent kid food. Lots of chili, stretchy cheeses, and tater tots make this fun for the little ones if they like chili.
Woody’s Lunch Box Pop Tarts
Homemade Pop-Tarts in Hazelnut and Raspberry are offered for less than 5 bucks each and can be shared between two people. Truthfully, we were floored by how wonderful the Raspberry Tart was. It’s officially made our Toy Story Must Do List and for good reason. Reminiscent of one of our favorite Christmas cookie recipes, the dough is buttery and flaky, filled with a good amount of raspberry jam, and topped with icing. Know that the Hazelnut Pop Tart is not officially filled with Nutella. Sad but true. Both though are delicious and a perfect mid-day snack if you’re looking for a food experience here but not a meal.
We also love that these pop tarts come in seasonal varieties too! Sweet Potato Pie, Apple, and Christmas flavors have debuted in the past. Check out the New Snacks at Walt Disney World for a glimpse at new seasonal pop tarts as they arrive.
Woody’s Lunch Box Tips for Lunch and Dinner
Eat Early or Late: Before 11 a.m. and after 4 p.m. are the best times to try and grab food at Woody’s Lunch Box. It’s no surprise that the parks are crazy busy from 12-4 p.m. Before 11 a.m. you could be fighting breakfast crowds but if you wait until noon all the seating will be gone. After 4 pm the crowds disseminate a bit to go to dinner reservations elsewhere.
Special Drinks: While Toy Story Land does have fancy drinks, they are sugary! And in a land without shade in the middle of Florida that sugar will dehydrate you pretty quickly. Opt for water instead.
Mobile Order: Again, mobile ordering will be your best friend for Woody’s Lunch Box. Follow the steps above to make sure you get your food without too much inconvenience or waiting.
You Could Just Grab Dessert: Without the allure of indoor seating, or enough seating, you and your family may want to just have breakfast, lunch, or dinner elsewhere. If that is the case, grab a few pop tarts so you at least get the Toy Story Land treat experience. We also love this snack as a treat you can settle with on the nearest bench, waiting for the next Army Patrol show that takes place in front of Alien Swirling Saucers. Grab the time’s guide at the Hollywood entrance for show times.
Woody’s Lunch Box Review
All in all, we really liked Woody’s Lunchbox at Toy Story Land and would definitely recommend it! Since Hollywood Studios does not have a large selection of quick-service restaurants that offer unique, yet accessible menus for the whole family, we were excited to find a restaurant that had a nice variety of easy options for both kids and grown-ups.
