Big Changes Are Coming to One Restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

We’ve seen some pretty big restaurant changes in Disney World in the past few months!

Backlot Express

From brand-new dining locations like Space 220 and Steakhouse 71 to 50th Anniversary and special holiday treats, there’s SO much new food to try these days. And coming soon, one Disney World restaurant is getting a menu overhaul!

Backlot Express in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is known for having a pretty basic menu…but not anymore! Starting on March 29th, the restaurant is getting a bunch of new dishes including a Cuban Sandwich, Smoked BBQ Pulled Pork Burger, Teriyaki Tofu Bowl, and Chicken Southwest Salad. (Although we’ve already seen some of those items pop up on the menu.) Just seeing the photos of the new eats has our mouths watering.


We saw a similar menu overhaul a while back at ABC Commissary, and it was definitely a well-received change, so we’re definitely excited to try out these items firsthand when they arrive!

  1. I get that the old food was basic… but that’s not always a bad thing. In my immediate travel party we have one one person with Crohn’s, one person with allergies including fruit and avocado, and another with fish and seaweed allergies. The old food made it much easier to know “oh I’m safe to eat this food that I’ve had 1000x before.” So many of the new plant based foods that are being added everywhere have hidden allergens (impossible meats have coconut oil for example) and many of the new foods being offered aren’t things that people who need a more bland diet can eat. I also have not been impressed with food quality for old favorites which appears to have been going downhill while prices increase since the parks reopened so while these items may sound good in theory, actual execution is another story. Not looking forward to these changes.

  2. Maybe its just me but it seems that menus are leaning heavily onto high sugar…teriyaki…and spicy things…Chile, pepper encrusted, spiced…etc not all of us can eat these things and with more limited menus having trouble finding things to eat other than salads

    1. Agreed. Plus, the size of meals can be overwhelming. I can’t eat a whole sandwich. I just can’t. But Disney doesn’t allow half orders, and ordering from the children’s menu means an endless parade of chicken tenders, hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches, none of which are healthy choices. I also have trouble with some salad greens, so I’m further limited in my food choices. It would be nice to be able to order a smaller sandwich with carrots or apples, instead of potatoes. I know that Disney is feeding the masses, literally, but I’d like to have more control of what goes into my stomach.
