Dinner at ABC Commissary
ABC Commissary, located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, offers quick service lunch and dinner with a more fast-casual vibe during dinner time. On this particular occasion, we decided to stop by for a quick dinner while visiting the newly opened Toy Story Land one night. Unfortunately, we did not have the best experience at Woody’s Lunch Box, so we opted to dine somewhere else in the park instead. It’s been a while since we’ve been to ABC Commissary, so we thought we’d check it out.
ABC Commissary is meant to resemble a backlot commissary, where you’d find cast and crew of tv shows and films enjoying a meal in between filming. With that in mind, the theming really does resemble what you would imagine a large cafeteria style commissary would like like.
I wouldn’t say there’s anything special about the theming and decor in ABC Commissary. It’s all fairly bland and non-descript.
One of the best things I like about the interior is that they have small live trees in inside. Although, both Brandon and I were pretty confused as we kept seeing guests come by this one tree and shake it. So bizarre.
The seating in ABC Commissary is pretty spacious, though we both agreed the seats have very low backs, which don’t make them very comfortable.
The last time we visited ABC Commissary for dinner, we were given an allergy-friendly dinner menu. But, when we asked a cast member this time, we were told they did not have any. The cast member did note that most of the items on the dinner menu can be made gluten free. But, we asked if we could get the allergy-friendly chicken tenders, which are on the lunch menu but not the dinner menu. Thankfully, you can get allergy-friendly chicken tenders any time of day if you ask!
After you place your order at ABC Commissary, guests are given a pager style device, and the food is brought to your table by a cast member. At dinner, ABC Commissary has paper plates that look a bit fancier and also include silver plastic silverware, hand wipes, and mints that help give the meal a more upscale quick service vibe.
Both Brandon and I ordered the allergy-friendly chicken tenders which are gluten free, dairy free, and free of many other allergens too. As always, we love the allergy-friendly chicken tenders at just about any location we get them at. Both of us agreed that the chicken tenders at ABC Commissary seemed extra crispy and almost a little overcooked, but they were still very good.
Because ABC Commissary also serves fried shrimp, I had a feeling they would serve Ken’s Steakhouse Cocktail Sauce. I asked a cast member about this, and they happily brought me several cups of it. I love that Ken’s Steakhouse condiments are gluten free, and I really like dipping my fries and tenders in this particular sauce whenever I can get it.
ABC Commissary doesn’t have any special theming or extra special food items. But they do provide a solid quick service meal for lunch and dinner. While lunch is a bit more basic, dinner has some more filling items like ribs. We personally love the allergy-friendly chicken tenders any time of day for a filling and tasty meal, and we’re glad that ABC Commissary can provide us with this and several other options.
