April 20: Drive-In Dining Sci-Fi Style

On this day in 1991, the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant opened at the Disney-MGM Studios Theme Park (today called Disney's Hollywood Studios). Known for its unique atmosphere, this restaurant's simulated nighttime sky is filled with fiber-optic twinkling stars that look down on guests. Patrons who are lucky enough to dine while seated in chrome "convertibles" face a giant screen showing '50s and '60s sci-fi flicks and cartoons. The license plates of the parked automobiles contain the initials of the Imagineers who designed the restaurant. Located on Commissary Lane, the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant serves lunch & dinner.
