BaseLine Tap House opens at Disney's Hollywood Studios

September 29, 2017, 10:43 AM · After all the closures at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort, here's some refreshing news — something new has opened in the slowly transforming theme park, a new restaurant in a newly themed land.

BaseLine Tap House opened to the public today at Disney's Hollywood Studios. It's really a bar, not a restaurant, and the food selections are limited to a $9 Bavarian Pretzel, with beer cheese fondue and spicy mustard, $6 Spiced Almonds snack, and a $10 California Cheese and Charcuterie board.

The highlight, though, is the drink menu, which features 18 nine California beers on tap, plus a create-your-own four-beer flight, for $10.50. There's also a hard cider, two wines, and two cocktails available: a Negroni with Hendrick's Gin, Campari and Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth, and a California Sunset, with Absolut Berri Acai Vodka, Southern Comfort, orange juice, and sweet-and-sour mix, with a float of pomegranate juice. Both are $11.25.

BaseLine Tap House anchors the newly reconfigured Grand Avenue land in Disney's Hollywood Studios, located around the corner from the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater restaurant. Construction continues at the park for Toy Story Land, which will open next summer, and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which will open in 2019. Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway also is under construction in the old Great Movie Ride space. No official opening date has been announced for that ride.

They really only have 9 beers on tap (2 different pour sizes, 16 and 22 OZ). The Green Flash is the only "decent" beer not easily sourced on the east coast, and that's by no means my favorite from those guys. My excitement has been squashed into disappointment. Back to the EPCOT F&W Festival for me, I suppose.

I think the menu may be a function of limited kitchen space. This appears to be taking up a pretty small spot with ZERO backstage access (essentially on an island).
