Three food and drink kiosks opening in Echo Lake at Disney's Hollywood Studios

May 13, 2016 in "Disney's Hollywood Studios"

Three food and drink kiosks will be opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios in time for the busy summer season.

"Echo Lake Eats" opens late May 2016, and will feature three kiosks - Hollywood Waffles of Fame, Bocados del Lago Nachos y Empanadas, and Sliders to the Stars.

Disney's Hollywood Studios is short on quick service options following the closure of Studio Catering on the backlot, and the refurbishment of Pizza Planet.

All three kiosks are expected to be available during peak periods only, and are currently planned to serve through the summer.

At Sliders to the Stars, you'll be able to find BBQ and brisket sliders. 

Hollywood Waffles of Fame will serve sandwiches, include a waffle sandwich.

Finally, Bocados del Lago Nachos y Empanadas, will offer - you guessed it, nachos and empanadas.

"Frozen Coke stand" I was like what the hell is that. I'm assuming you meant Peevys Polar Pipleline you know how Disney is when it comes to technical things.

The Disny website says there is still one at Echo Lake and one at Tower of Terror (plus the one at the main entrance outside of the park and the small one inside the Fantasmic theatre). But the one by the coke bottles does still exist even though it's not advertised or labeled on any maps.

Recent closures only lost the LMA one. Coke Bottle area is still a smoking section.

With all the recent closures at DHS how many smoking areas are even left?

BoltMay 20, 2016

Yes - moved back to where it was a few years ago along the water near on the other side, near the frozen Coke stand.

Anyone know if the smoking area did in fact move?

They have proven that they can produce good QS food recently (I'm thinking the ribs at the Harambe Village). Years ago they were also able to produce good food at the Food & Wine festival using booths. And I'm sure a park that has a current reputation of lacking both attractions and palatable QS food there's an incentive to provide some tasty QS... Potential exists....

About 4 inches long for the empanadas, and 3 inches across for the slider.

How were the portion sizes overall, in particular the empanadas and sliders? The empanadas looked a bit small but that could just be the angle of the photo.

I'm gonna bet they have that smoking area moved or removed when those kiosks open.

Photo update as of Tuesday, May 17. Here are the three new food kiosks around Echo Lake. Unfortunately, they are all located in the smoking areas.

Was at the park this morning; all three kiosks looked ready or almost ready to open.
