Review of Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich from Woody’s Lunch Box


Sometimes you just want a simple meal. Maybe a meal which brings comfort from your childhood. From my childhood that might mean fish sticks, macaroni & cheese, or a grilled cheese sandwich. Classic grilled cheese sandwiches work as an amazing, tasty treat. Some of my international friends mock the USA citizen obsession with cheese. I, for one, feel the only thing better than one slice of cheese is another slice of cheese.

Woody’s Lunch Box, within Hollywood Studios, counter service dining option sells a grilled cheese. Though Woody’s Lunch Box, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, offers a brisket filled style of grilled cheese also, the Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich offers some basic comfort food. If simple comfort food calls to you while enjoying your day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this will suffice. This grilled cheese displays a well prepared simple grilled cheese. Unless you have a dairy allergy, nothing about this sandwich will bother you. People who dislike this sandwich claim it is basically boring. Yet sometimes you want no surprises from your theme park counter service food.

This sandwich from Woody’s Lunch Box comes with melted provolone, cheddar, and American cheese on grilled sourdough bread. The “Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich” costs $9.99. This sandwich comes with one side such as potato barrels or tomato-basil soup.

However, you can choose to order the kid’s version for only $6.79. The key difference from this compared to the adult version involves getting only half a grilled cheese. Yet, you get a kid size beverage that way. If you are just looking for a decent snack with the appearance of some nutrition, mobile order the kid’s meal version.

This sandwich will not win any dining awards. Yet, you are getting a quality small but decent sandwich for a reasonable theme park price.  The bread could be better but works in this format. A slight touch of garlic with the bread goes nicely with the cheese and butter.

The largest negative of this menu item is three-fold. One, the portion size rates as average at best. This issue shines in terms of the side portion being small. Speaking of the sides, the second negative revolves around their quality. The potato barrels taste just okay. Perhaps if Disney paid Ore-Ida to call them tater tots, they would taste better like over at Green Eggs and Ham at Islands of Adventure. In fairness to the potato barrels, they work well in the “Totchos” served here. Now, the soup tastes just okay. Guests should think of it as dipping sauce for your grilled cheese. The consistency reflects nothing like what I visualize as soup.

The final negative involves seating. Most of the time finding a seat here brings disappointment. Since Toy Story Land possesses a reputation for lack of shade, please plan for that also.

Despite that, this menu item, especially the kid’s meal, offers solid value for your money. Sure, you can find at least ten better grilled cheese sandwiches on Walt Disney World property. If given the choice, I would spend a little more money and get the grilled cheese at ABC Commissary in this theme park. Still, this sandwich makes a great snack/ light lunch option, especially for the picky eater. As always, eat like you mean it!
