50’s Prime Time Cafe offers a dining atmosphere unlike any other at Walt Disney World. From menu options to decor, this restaurant brings you into your mother’s kitchen in the 1950s. For a special treat, you can watch tv while you eat, but be sure to mind your manners. All of your “cousins” (Disney Cast Member wait staff) are unafraid to remind you to keep your elbows off the table, to keep your napkin on your lap, and to finish all your vegetables before dessert! The theming of this dining location provides a fun atmosphere for Guests of all ages.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
