If you need to eat at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, your lone option is going to be World Premiere Food Court. All of the value resorts at Disney World feature a food court dining option, but that is where the commonality ends usually. The quality and consistency of the food offered in each of them is all over the board. Here in our World Premiere Food Court review, we’ll give you our take on this Disney World restaurant, covering the food, decor, and our thoughts on if you should dine here. We’ll even weigh in on how it compares to some of the other value resort food courts we have eaten at.
You’ll find a wealth of basic theme park foods on the World Premiere Food Court menu. If you’re wondering, that is not necessarily a good thing. One look through it, and we generally find that the things you should stay away from are easy to spot. They are pre-made, wrapped in foil, and usually sound boring or bland. Also, be sure to look around at the food itself. If things are sitting out for you to see, they will give you an idea if there is any redeeming value to them.
That said, you can find some surprisingly good entrees here too. We didn’t eat everything on the menu, but we think there are some reasonably good options here. Don’t get us wrong, this isn’t like eating at a Disney World signature restaurant, but some items have a reasonable price and good flavor.
World Premiere Food Court serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We actually ate breakfast and dinner here, so you’ll get a bit of a two for one review of World Premiere Food Court. We’ll cover both meals in this post.
Because it is the only dining option at All-Star Movies Resort, World Premiere Food Court does take Tables in Wonderland. It’s a rarity for the discount card to be accepted at quick-service restaurants at Disney World.
The Restaurant Has a Retro Cinema Vibe
When you walk into World Premiere Food Court, you are greeted by the lights and glamour of older style movie marquees. It reminds me of the movie house front you see in Spaceship Earth. I guess I should say spoiler alert? Too late.
Some may find the marquees dated and old, but we actually love the styling. The style brings depth to the restaurant’s theme that we welcome. It’s distinct and unique, which is not how we would describe what we found at the End Zone Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort.
I will say we found it the restaurant busy, but not anything where we couldn’t get a table. Because of the size of All-Star Movies, there are a lot of people that need to eat here. There isn’t any real acoustic work that we could tell, which resulted in us finding the restaurant a bit noisy. It’s not like we couldn’t carry on a conversation around the table, but it would be okay if the noise were about 10 decibels lower.
At World Premiere Food Court You’ll Find Food You’ll Love and Food You’ll Love to Hate
When it comes to breakfast here, you will find lots of standard breakfast fare here: Mickey Waffles, Bounty Platter featuring eggs, bacon, and potatoes and a Mickey-shaped waffle, pastries, etc. Most items are similar to what you can find across the various Disney World parks and resorts.
For my breakfast at World Premiere Food Court, I selected the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissant. It comes with potato barrels, otherwise known at tater tots. I really enjoyed the croissant part of the meal. The bacon was slightly overcooked for my tastes, but if you like crunchy bacon, it will be perfect for you. The eggs were tasty and blended well with the cheese. Combining it all on a buttery, light, and flakey croissant was a great combination. It’s certainly not the most original breakfast I’ve ever had, but it was a good way to stay our day.
Carla dined gluten free as usual. She ordered the Bounty Platter, which comes with eggs, bacon, cheesy potatoes, and a Mickey waffle. She subbed out the regular Mickey waffle with a gluten free Mickey waffle. Much like the Bounty Platter, I had during our Everything Pop review, Carla found the food to be fine. Wasn’t great, wasn’t terrible, it was just okay. She did particularly enjoy the cheesy potatoes because they are not something she can often have.
Anna ordered the kid’s pancake. It’s a basic pancake that came with two strips of bacon. The pancake was a good size, and Anna devoured it. Again, not the most original item, but for kid’s pancake, it does the trick.
Elsa also went the pancake route for her breakfast at World Premiere Food Court but ordered off the adult menu. The kid’s portions just aren’t enough to quench her appetite as she gets older. She selected the House-made Vanilla Pancakes, which come with a side of bacon and sausage. These vanilla bean infused pancakes were excellent. I took a few bites of them and would say I enjoyed it slightly more than my croissant. Elsa loved them as well and was quite annoyed when I sampled some of them. It’s a good portion and will keep you full through the morning.
Beyond our main meals, we also wanted to sample something from the pastry and baked goods area of the food court. Each of the value resort food courts has a baked goods and other prepared foods area where you can get something and go. In our case, Elsa selected for the table. She picked out a blueberry muffin and a small banana bread. For me, I liked the blueberry muffin more, but the girls and I all generally enjoyed both. There was nothing unique or special about either item, but they were good for what they are. With things that are likely made offsite and brought into the food court, you never know what you are going to get. We consider these selections a success.
All in all, the vanilla pancakes and croissant were the best things we had here. You won’t find anything unbelievable or unique here, but several dishes will get the job done.
Let’s get to the dinner section of our World Premiere Food Court review.
When we at dinner at World Premiere Food Court, I was torn on what to order. There are definitely more adventurous items, but what caught my eye was the Grilled Chicken Sandwich. It’s a grilled chicken breast topped with cheddar, bacon, and honey mustard. I love honey mustard, so odds are I was going to enjoy this sandwich. In fact, I did. Once again, I would say that it wasn’t the best meal I’ve ever had or even the best chicken sandwich I’ve ever had….that honor goes to Chick-fil-A. I swear they must put something illegal in those things!
The chicken was cooked well, while the honey mustard gave it a great flavor. I was happy to see the chicken was moist and not dried out. The bacon provided extra salty flavor and some crunch. I could have done without the cheese, but it didn’t hurt the sandwich. At the end of the day, it was a good sandwich, but not something I would say you absolutely must order. But then again, we rarely find those at any of the food courts we eat at while staying at Disney World.
Carla got the grilled chicken sandwich too. We ordered separately as she was looking for a gluten free item. Poor planning on our part. We’ll have to come back here to have more dinner entrees.
Elsa elected to order the kid’s cheese pizza. If the picture above has already turned you off, then you are a very observant person. This pizza was terrible. Doughy, overcooked, and lacking in pizza sauce, I couldn’t eat more than a couple of bites of it. Now, that’s the adult perspective. Elsa, on the other hand, thought it was great. If she’s one thing, it’s consistent. She likes doughy pizza, with a small amount of sauce and a large amount of cheese. My guess is most kids will like this, so take my opinion for what it is…of a middle-aged guy.
Anna decided something that was equally visually unappealing. That would be this turkey sandwich from the prepared food. Once again, if it doesn’t look appealing to you, you would be correct. This was nothing more than regular old turkey cold cuts in a piece of bread. Anna ate it with no complaints, but it was just blah from this adult’s perspective. If this is what you are going to have, you may as well just pick up some deli meat at a local supermarket and save yourself a few bucks.
World Premiere Food Court Overall Impressions
So was World Premiere Food Court the best culinary dining experience we’d had at Disney World? No, not even close. Was it the worst? Again, not even close. It’s an average food court, with several options that are passable, but likely not going to be a place you are blown away by. Be mindful of what you order. If it looks terrible, it probably is. Stay away from pre-packaged foods. If you do those two things, your odds of having a successful meal at World Premiere Food Court will go up substantially.
If you are looking for a resort food court to dive into, we like Landscape of Flavors over at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. It has a much better variety and provides something unexpected each time we’ve been there. If you go to Everything Pop at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, you’ll another good dining experience.
All in all, World Premiere Food Court will likely do the trick for you and your family. What makes it better is the resort is fantastic. We’ll have a resort review coming in the next couple of weeks. That alone makes eating here worth it, but that is a story of a different post.
Wrapping Up Our World Premiere Food Court Review
With that, we’ll wrap up our World Premiere Food Court review. It’s a reasonably priced counter service location at All-Star Movies Resort that will give you a wide array of choices to eat. Be mindful of what you select for your meal, and you’ll probably be just fine.
