ABC Commissary

Located near Sci-Fi Dine In. This is a great spot to grab some food, A/C and a cold beer. 

Drinks 
Bud Light - $6
Yuengling - $6.75
Wine - Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay or Merlot - $6.95

Food 
A variety of entrees here including sandwiches, salads and more.

Atmosphere 
This place is like an oasis in the dessert on one of those hot & humid Florida days. Cold A/C and a very large seating area make this place a great stop to cool off. There are bathrooms inside the restaurant too. You do get bombarded with ABC advertisements for their TV shows on multiple TVs throughout the area, so if you can tolerate that, you're good!

Food 
They have a good variety of entrees here. Decent sized portions as well. You can refill your regular beverages here too.

Atmosphere 
Backlot Express has a good amount of indoor & outdoor seating. This is a very detailed area, when you're done eating take a walk around and read all the signs & posters. The outdoor area has a nice wood, high-top bar that's a nice place to relax on a warm afternoon. Bonus: from the right angle, you can see a little of the Indy Stunt Show.

Pour Quality
 
Average

Food 
Go around the corner to find a decent selection of entrees, or a beer if the line here is too long.

Atmosphere
 
There are a couple tables & chairs out front, but you're baking in the sun here, so go over to the ample covered seating by the restaurant. They have a couple bar stools right at the bar, but I can't imagine these often get used. Not a fun hangout with a line of 30 thirsty people behind you. This turns into a very hot, long line in the summer, and the bartenders are not the quickest. When you finally get your drink, there's a fun gift shop nearby with unique props hanging from the ceiling. One thing to note, on not very busy days this bar often doesn't open up until after lunch time. If you want a Bud Light, Yuengling, Blue Moon, Wine or Sangria and the line at the bar is insane, check the lines right around the corner at Studio Catering Co. - they serve those drinks here as well.

Atmosphere 
Just what this park needed - a classy little spot to grab a fancy cocktail & appetizer while enjoying the afternoon. Outside on the patio there's tables with umbrellas and high-tops for seating from 2-5 people. The inside area has a few of their usual wooden tables and chairs. The outside has a much better view and is more fun to kick back and people watch from over the inside area, but once summer rolls around again, we think that outside patio might get very empty.
 
The Lounge menu is likely to change as they adjust to this new addition. We were told if we wanted an item from the regular menu it would be available - we even saw the fanboy favorite Grapefruit Cake pass by on a tray - and it's not on the Lounge menu. If you wanted a cocktail from the regular menu you should be able to order that as well.

We very much like that this is first-come, no reservations. We all know how hard it is to get into a popular restaurant at Disney on a whim. Now you can get in as soon as someone leaves their table. 

We are very happy with this new addition to the park. Heck, it might make us come here more often! File this lounge addition under "why didn't they do this earlier"?

Review
Citizens Take Flight is a tasting of their 3 Margaritas: "Bucky Greenhorn Derby", "Melvin Macheezmo Mango" and "Ready Freddy Fiddlesticks Pomegranate". All are named after Hollywood Studios' Street Performers - the Citizens of Hollywood. These are all handmade, high quality margaritas.

Our favorite 2 are the Classic Lime and the Mango. Light, crisp and refreshing without any heavy artificial flavors. Our least favorite is the Pomegranate, only because of its rather syrupy thick pomegranate flavor - but it's still quite tasty. The glasses are pretty decently sized which makes this a reasonable value for $11.25, plus you get the 3 different flavors. If you love margaritas or just want to try a few new flavors, give this one a try.

We also ordered the Artisanal Cheeses and Charcuterie Board for Two as we're suckers for a fine cheeses and meats. This is one of the most exquisite, diverse and high quality Charcuterie Boards we've ever eaten - anywhere in Orlando. This isn't a dish for non-adventurous eaters. The "faux gras" and duck rillette are not for newbies, but delicious for those willing to take a chance. If you like this kind of funky flavored cheeses and meats like us, we highly recommend it, in fact, we can't wait to order it again.
