Downtown Disney's AMC MacGuffins Bar & Lounge

Movie Night on Vacation just got a little nicer with last year's complete overhaul that turned the Downtown Disney AMC Theater into a dine in movie experience. The AMC Fork & Screen is open to guests 18 years of age and older with "with upgraded seats, an extensive menu, full cocktail bar and service at the push of a button." It can still be a family experience as well, but those under age 18 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.

Before your movie share a drink in MacGuffins bar and lounge. The atmosphere is lively and exciting at this is a full bar with limited seating. It serves creative cocktails and extensive beer selections as well as a full wine list. The bar keeps it's film connection through it's name MacGuffin which is "A term coined by famed filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock in 1939, the macguffin is the plot device that motivates the characters and drives the story, like Ark of the Covenant in Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark."

Are you hungry? Food is plentiful at MacGuffins with appetizers such as Sweet Onion Loops, Veggie Triple Feature, and Parmesan Fries. I enjoy the selection of Pub Grub like Chicken Tenders, Blue Max Burger and Smoked Brisket Quesadillas. But there's so much more! Then menu also has a full kids menu, entree choices and desserts. It's so fast and convenient for movie goers to relax and take in a film with a cocktail and some munchies that won't leave you hungry later.

I'm not sure that this will be one of my regular haunts because we take shorter vacations. However, for locals, and travelers that stay more than a week, adding a movie night into the plans sounds like a lot of fun. This AMC location has gone above and beyond to treat it's guests to something special.

Have you grabbed a drink before your show at MacGuffins Bar and Lounge? Do you enjoy this new Fork & Screen style theater environment? Leave me a message below and let me know what you think!

I'm still curious about this and would love to hear from anyone who has been to the Fork & Screen.

I'm stuck on how distracting it might be having people coming in and out throughout the movie with food orders, and the noise associated with it.

Does it detract from the movie experience?

Jeff, there was a review the Fork and Screen on the Disney Food Blog last year. Based on the comments there didn't appear to be any distractions.
