In a viral TikTok Guests can be seen leaving a popular restaurant at Disney World. At first, these Guests were not sure why they were being forced to leave but later find out a fire broke out in the restaurant. Prime Time Cafe is a 50’s diner that makes Guests feel like they are back in mom’s kitchen with the family. Guests just need to pull up a chair and remember, no elbows on the table.
