There are Cast Member only cafeterias at each park. The interesting thing is that at the Studios there is an Animators only cafeteria. If you were to exit the Animation Tour where the Fantasia topiaries are outside and cross the street backstage you would see it.

Animation Tour Upgrade - The original entrance was too bland and difficult for guests to find, so
sculptures or models of different animated characters were put
up around the entrance doors, and a plant barricade between the
entrance to the Animation Gallery and the Animation Tour.
The spiralling sign out front got "brightened" with fiberoptics, and the big film strip
in the sidewalk that no one
ever noticed was extended all the way to the entrance door.
The lobby spiel has been updated
so there is more guest interaction and draws the group in.
Another problem with the lobby was that there are a lot of
foreign language-speaking and hard-of-hearing guests who left because
they saw the lobby and thought it's just a display, not the beginning of a
tour. The whole point of the tour upgrade was to give the guests what they want, and
after many Guest Satisfaction Measurements, about 90% of the suggestions were accepted.

In the movie with Robin & Walter they claim to be at the Disney Studios. But have you ever noticed that in the begining of the film when Walter & Robin first meet that Earful Tower is in the wrong place and it looks totally different.
REPORTED: STEVEN FENCE 13 DEC 96
During the Animation tour film Walter does say that they are at the Disney Studios, he doesn't say they are at the Disney MGM studios. They are actually at the Disney Studios in Anaheim.
UPDATE: Goot 25 OCT 99
In the film with Robin when Robin is a pencil drawing, and turns into a lumberjack, his shadow forms a hidden Mickey. As his legs become longer, the Mickey head grows legs, and looks remarkably like the Studios' water tower.
