50’s Prime Time Cafe is located in Hollywood Studios in the Echo Lake Area. It is coupled with the In-Tune Lounge-an option for those guest 21 years and older. 50’s Prime Time Cafe is a themed restaurant made to look like a typical house from 1955. With a heavy dose of sitcom decor! Some of Mom’s favorite dishes are on the menu, such as the following: golden fried chicken, pot roast, s’mores, and meatloaf. You can view their full menu HERE.
The 50’s Prime Time Cafe is a trip back in time. The wait for your table is in the “living room”, while old favorites are on the TV. When you are taken to your table you will see televisions and unique 50’s knick-knacks. If you are lucky, grab a “TV Table” which has a television at the end of your table for easier TV dining. As you eat your dinner surrounded in nostalgia, you are treated to episodes of old favorites like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and My Three Sons. Don’t forget to order dessert, the menu is on a ViewMaster! This is not only a great meal-with good food for everyone-it’s also a dining experience in and of itself! The cast members interact heavily with the guests-be prepared! It’s all in good fun, though.
Check your embarrassment at the door. Everyone is “family” at the restaurant and Mom (aka your server) will have no problem yelling at you to eat your veggies and get those elbows off the table. You will be sitting next to your “cousins” and the whole atmosphere is like one big family! 50s Prime Time Cafe is part of the Disney Dining Plan, and counts as table service credits. You’ll want to make a reservation here if you’re looking for a fun meal!
Overall we give this restaurant an “A”.
