50’s Prime Time Cafe is located at Disney Hollywood Studios. Bring your appetite and sense of humor. The theme is Mom’s kitchen circa 1955. There are TV’s throughout the restaurant broadcasting black and white sitcoms. From “Father Knows Best” to the original “Mickey Mouse Club,” you can’t help but smile when you see these blasts from the past.

Everyone is “family.” Your server will introduce you to your “cousins” while giving you strict rules and stern warnings to keep your elbows off of the table and to eat your vegetables. Just like the parents from the beloved sitcoms of the 1950’s, those who do not comply with the rules, may be subjected to some “punishment”, such as having their food fed to them or being forced to stand in the corner.  It’s all in good fun and makes for some entertaining antics while you eat. It should be noted that your experience at this restaurant depends largely on your server. Some are more entertaining than others. It should be pointed out that shy children (and adults) might not find this the best place to eat. It truly is all in good fun and adds to the unique experience.

50’s Prime Time Cafe has also become more and more popular over the years and reservations are recommended.  Walk-ups can be harder to come by than in recent years and clearly many guests are returning after some good meals here.
