Back in Time

Living here in Florida, my family and I have the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World a couple of times a year. Usually we drive up for a long weekend stay and visit one or two of their parks. One of our favorite parks is Hollywood Studios, previously known as MGM Studios.

We love this park not only for their fabulous rides like Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Muppet Vision 3-D, and The Great Movie Ride but for their wonderful restaurants. Our all time favorite is the 50's Prime Time Cafe. It's a restaurant with a show. A show because of all the servers antics.

When you first enter the 50's Prime Time Cafe the decor takes you back 60 plus years. The furniture, wall decor and atmosphere is all 1950's themed. There are several television sets playing popular sitcoms of shows such as Father Knows Best, I Love Lucy, Dennis the Menace and The Original Mickey Mouse Club. The best dining table seat up to 4 diners and have their own television set so you can be taken back in time while you eat. Larger tables are available without the television set for larger families.

The best part of your dining experience is the staff, which are either your "Aunt", "Uncle" or "Cousin". Their antics will keep you laughing uncontrollably. They will remind you to sit up straight, get your elbows off the tables, and eat all your vegetables.

The 50's Prime Time Cafe serves the classic American comfort food which we find to be delicious.

Their lunch and dinner menu consists of: Drinks and beverages, Appetizers, Lunch and Dinner Entrees, and Dessert.

Their Appetizers which range from $2.39 to $5.99:

  • Seafood Salad
  • Chicken Noodle Soup
  • Crab Cakes
  • Iceberg Lettuce Wedge
  • Beer Battered Onion Rings
  • Aunt Annie's Seafood Salad

Their most popular entrees for Lunch and Dinner which range from $10.99 to $19.99:

  • Blue Plate Special
  • Traditional Meatloaf
  • Old-fashioned Pot Roast
  • Grandma's Chicken Pot Pie
  • Golden Fried Chicken
  • Boneless Pork Loin
  • Spaghetti and Meatballs
  • Olive Oil-poached Salmon
  • Caesar Salad with Chicken

Most entrees are served with mashed potatoes and a side of vegetables such as green beans, southern greens or the vegetable of the day.

Children Menus are available and include:

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
  • Macaroni with Tomato Sauce
  • Macaroni with Cheese
  • Hot Dog
  • Fried Chicken Nuggets

Their Desserts:

  • Apple Cobbler
  • Ice Cream Sundaes
  • Cream Parfait
  • No Sugar Cheesecake
  • Brownie Sundae
  • Smores

Their Beverages:

  • Milk Shakes and Malts, which are deliciously thick and creamy
  • Root Beer or Coke Floats
  • Cocktails
  • Wine
  • Frosty Beers
  • Specialty Drinks such as Dad's Electric Lemonade and Grandma's Picnic Punch

Cocktails are also served for guests 21 and older in the Tune-In Lounge.

50's Prime Time Cafe is open for lunch and dinner, and we usually go around 5:00 for a late lunch, early dinner. Prices range from $15.00 to $35.00 and priority seating reservations are suggested, which we usually do in the morning before leaving our resort. For reservations you can call 1-407-WDW-DINE. If you have a Disney dining plan, the 50's Prime Time Cafe is part of their dining plan as well. If your paying out of pocket the average cost per person for us was about $15.00 to $20.00 and included an appetizer for us 4, an entree for each of us, drinks and we shared a dessert.

If you plan on visiting Hollywood Studios make this restaurant one of your stops. If you tend to be shy or want some privacy this restaurant is not for you. Part of the fun is the interaction between the staff and the guests. It will be memorable and unforgetable. Never a dull moment if you ask me.

      Next time I visit Disney I will most certainly stop in the 50's Cafe. It sounds like great fun.
