If you’re looking for a wide variety of great dining options in one Quick Service location, look no further than the ABC Commissary.
Located on Commissary Lane at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the ABC Commissary features dishes inspired by the ABC lineup of tv shows. The Art Deco interior is filled with half booth tables and some tables with chairs. Most of the tables will only seat 4 but are close enough together to be used for larger groups. There is also limited outdoor seating at umbrella covered tables.
One of my favorites is the Chicken Curry with Rice. It’s a wonderful curry, the perfect blend of spices, chicken, and rice. They also have a great Asian Salad, which is a vegetarian option. The servings are typically large. We often order the curry and salad and split it amongst three adults. ABC Commissary is part of the Disney Dining plan with Quick Service meals and Snacks.
Menu items range from $7.00 to $10.00 and include the Chicken Curry, Asian Salad, Chicken Bleu sandwich, and an Angus Cheeseburger. Kids entrees are fairly basic and include a Cheeseburger, Chicken Nuggets, or a Sandwich, which in the past was either Turkey or Ham. Drinks include the usual Coke products, but Beer and Wine are also available.
The ABC Commissary has a lot of seating, but can get very crowded. The lines can be quite long and orders can be filled slowly when it’s busy. Fortunately, if you avoid the normal meal times of 12-1 pm and 5-7 pm, the crowds aren’t too bad.
The dining room stays very cool in the summer, and can be a wonderful break from the heat. In the dining room, there are usually a few costume displays from ABC shows such as Once Upon a Time and Modern Family. TVs play segments from the shows and fun behind-the-scenes looks. The last time I was there, they were playings interviews from Once Upon a Time and Dancing with the Stars. They’re actually kind of fun to watch. The displays change with the current ABC lineup. In the past, they had behind the scenes looks at LOST and Desperate Housewives.
Diva Tip: The ABC Commissary shares its bathrooms with the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater. Since they share, it can be a rather long wait for the restroom. The extreme air conditioning makes this room ridiculously cold, which can be an issue when looking for a place to change a baby.
Whether you’re looking for something unexpected at a reasonable price or just a nice place to cool off, be sure to stop in at the ABC Commissary. You’ll be glad you did.
