We visited Disney world and all the parks for nine days over Christmas. Before our trip, my husband and daughter painstakingly booked all of our meal reservations through our meal plan. First off I highly recommend the meal plan. This is our second visit to Disney world and both times we stayed at a park resort and purchased the basic... More

We had dinner last night at prime time and had the "best server ever". We loved his inner action and jokes and knew when to stop. He made us keep our elbows off the table and had the princess put in here place and that was the best part of the experience. The cousins name was Mason. Please pass this... More

This was my third trip to Prime Time Cafe. As always the atmosphere is fun! We were seated in a corner where one of us could only look at a wall of window shades. We thought about asking for a table change but the cafe was quite busy. The young man who seated us, Aaron, is a hoot. He is... More

Stopped by for dinner with a previous reservation, we were seated pretty quickly. The waiter was enjoyable and attentive but the menu was not very diverse and is not recommended for picky eaters. I had the chicken noodle soup which was good but nothing to write home about. Worth a stop by to check it out, it has a fun... More

We came to Disney ten years ago and ate at 50's Prime Time Cafe and truly enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and the service. It certainly didn't disappoint this time around. Our waitress, Mandy certainly made the whole night. My daughters comment was "the taste of the food makes me feel like we are at home". Almost all of the decorations... More

We enjoyed a 1950's style family dinner here tonight. The vegetable lasagna was delicious as was the kids grilled cheese and fries that my 6 year old got (can't go wrong with grilled cheese and fries). The "Dad's Brownie Sundae" was great for dessert. What really made this an awesome experience though was our waiter, "Cousin John." He knew everyone's... More

I love the atmosphere here. Food is always good and the service is great. Try the peanut butter and jelly milkshake for dessert.

Great food served here and even better was the experience we had! The servers are quite funny and they make you stick to the rules of the restaurant. We had a good time and would visit again.

My family and I really enjoyed 50's Primetime Cafe. I'm not really a comfort food person, but this was an exception. I had the Pot Roast, which I thought was very good. Everyone else in my party enjoyed their meal as well. We loved are interaction with Mark-Evan! He made the wait so much more bearable, as did Rose who... More

50's Prime Time Café serves classic American comfort food in a TV-themed setting. The restaurant sits across from Echo Lake in Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park.The 50's Prime Time Café menu includes family favorites like golden fried chicken, traditional meatloaf and pot roast, cooked the way Mom used to make it—that is, if Mom were a 1950s sitcom star.Be welcomed into Mom's family and feel at home in her kitchenette. But Mom expects you to mind your manners, so don't be surprised if she tells you to keep your elbows off the table. It's all part of the old-fashioned fun and gentle ribbing that's served up along with the food.TV Tables and Tune-In LoungeFor a special treat at 50's Prime Time Café, grab a "TV Table" that seats up to 4 diners and has a television next to the table that broadcasts clips from popular prime time sitcoms circa 1955 including "Father Knows Best" and the original "Mickey Mouse Club."Bop into 50's Prime Time Café for lunch or dinner. Cocktails, wines by the glass and frosty beers are available from Mom for Guests 21 years of age and older, or relax in the Tune-In Lounge full-service bar and sip Dad's Electric Lemonade or Grandma's Picnic Punch.From the mid-50s knick-knacks and memorabilia that decorate this restaurant to the dessert menu displayed through viewfinder toys, nostalgia is the main ingredient at 50's Prime Time Café.
