This Mama Melrose dinner review is based on my experience when visiting the restaurant in November 2017 with my family.
Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano is tucked in the back of the Muppet Courtyard in the Grand Avenue section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They are open for lunch and dinner and serve American and Italian dishes in a casual atmosphere. The do accept some Disney Dining Plans.
My family and I planned a trip to Walt Disney World during the week of Thanksgiving 2017. While I might not recommend visiting during that week due to the insane amount of people who visit during that time, I would recommend every single restaurant we were fortunate to eat at!
We purchased the Deluxe Dining Plan while booking our trip through the Disney website. This plan includes an entree and beverage for breakfast, and an appetizer, entree, and dessert for lunch and dinner. In addition, each person also receives 2 snacks per day. Disney is changing the plan slightly for 2018, but it seems that it will just include even more options!
The Deluxe Dining Plan treats anyone 10 and up as an adult, so my 10-year-old son ordered off the regular menu for all of our meals. Anyone under 3 is free so long as they just share food from other peoples plates. Sometimes my 2-year-old just ate from our plates, and sometimes we ordered additional food for him at an additional cost.
We did make reservations for all of our meals ahead of time. I would highly recommend doing this as soon as you book your trip, especially if you will be travelling during a busier time of the year.
Mama Melrose Dinner Review
I apologize for the quality of the photos. The restaurant is dim and we did not want to disturb other diners by using the flash on the camera.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Mama Melrose! Because the menus are always changing, I can’t guarantee the same selections will all be available as in this Mama Melrose Dinner Review. To see the current menu and prices, click here!
