This Walt Disney World restaurant is sure to bring a blast from the past to your dining table.

From the atmosphere to the food to the experience, 50s Prime Time Cafe, located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, is guaranteed fun for the whole gang.

At 50s Prime Time Cafe, everyone is family! Mom is in the kitchen cookin’ up something finger-lickin’ good while your cousin is your waiter or waitress. Make sure to follow all the rules, just as you would in your own home. This means no phones at the table, no elbows on the table, and of course, finish those veggies!

The Atmosphere

You will feel as though you are dining in the 50s. From retro style tables to old-fashioned all American decor, this Disney restaurant is extremely unique and a ton of fun!

There’s a bit of an added bonus here at 50s Prime Time Cafe though when you find out you are allowed to watch television at the dinner table! Be on the lookout for popular 50s shows that everyone will love, including I Love Lucy and Mickey Mouse Club.

“For an extra-special treat, you’re allowed to watch TV while eating dinner! Take a seat at a retro TV table and enjoy black-and-white clips from popular prime-time shows circa 1955. After dinner, be sure to browse the dessert menu for sweet treats that include an incredible chocolate peanut butter layer cake and warm apple crisp—just like Mom’s!”
