Nostalgic Dining at 50’s Prime Time Cafe, Disney
My friend, Lynne, and I were spending the day at the Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios theme park. We wanted a sit-down lunch experience rather than a kiosk or counter service. Lynn and I chose the 50’s Prime Time Cafe. It is one of the most popular restaurants in the park and we loved the nostalgic factor. The 50’s Prime Time Cafe serves amazing comfort food dishes.
What Should We Eat?
For lunch, I selected Dad’s Stuffed Pork Chop, filled with cranberries, apples, herbs, and Gouda cheese. The Pork Chop was served with roasted potatoes and carrots. Lynne strayed from her usual meal of the Old-Fashioned Pot Roast and chose Grandma’s Chicken Pot Pie, baked with a flaky top crust. My pork chop was moist and delicious. The vegetables were flavorful, although I wish they would have been cooked a little more. The portions were plentiful.
About The Cafe
The 50’s Prime Time Cafe is decorated in retro decor. There are plenty of neat things to see including 1955’s prime-time black and white shows running continually on antique televisions. The wait staff participates in friendly banter and reprimands you for having elbows on the table, not eating your vegetables, and things of that nature. It is all in good fun, but be prepared for this.
The kitsch of the whole place will immediately transport you to a 1950’s family home complete with all the furnishings, dishes, and even “mom”. The menu is full of comfort foods and if you eat all your meal, you will get a “Clean Plate Club” sticker to commemorate your achievement.
Tables nearby us were indulging in milkshakes and they looked heavenly. The shakes are served alongside the silver shaker containing the any extra milkshake that the glass would not hold. There is even a PB&J milkshake. I will definitely try one next time! Please note, lunch prices at 50’s Prime Time Cafe are very expensive.
