I think anyone who knows me, knows that I love everything and anything 50’s! So it was only natural that one of my first ADR’s (advance dining reservations in Disney speak) would be at the 50’s Prime Time Cafe located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This is a table-service restaurant worth 1 dining credit per person on the Disney dining plan. If you are on the dining plan, because it is not a buffet, it includes an appetizer and dessert of your choice.
I really felt at home here because of “mom’s rules” which were very similar to my own!
1) Mom cooked the dinner. You set the table.
2) Clean your plate. That means- eat it all. I mean it.
3) No elbows on the table. Period.
Okay, so they are the same rules I have at home, but you know what I mean!
Here’s M setting her place, with the kids menu as her place mat:
Did I mention that the portions are HUGE?? This place is more appropriate for dinner, not lunch as we did.
I ordered mom’s pot roast which was melt-in-your-mouth! But like I said, it was huge and I wasn’t about to stuff myself on such a hot day. Cousin Joey (our waiter) scolded me for it, but hey, a girl’s gotta watch her figure, am I right?
And because J didn’t have a good enough excuse for not clearing his plate, Cousin Joey made sure he finished off his plate:
Bottom line, it was a blast. The TVs were great (loved watching old episodes of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse). The food was good (albeit slow to come out) and the theme of the restaurant was AMAZING. Disney is lucky they hot glued down most of the things in there, as I tried to take off with a few trinkets!
Next time though, we’ll be visiting for dinner, instead of lunch.
