At 50’s Prime Time Café, you are one of the family. Enjoy wholesome, down-home cooking, but you’d better keep your elbows off the table!
50’s Prime Time Café is a table service restaurant located inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort. Themed like a 1950s television sitcom, complete with chrome-trimmed Formica tables, ceramic cookie jars, and black-and-white TV clips, the atmosphere throws Guests back to a time when Mom daily prepared wholesome meals and families still gathered together around the dinner table. Menu items include such homemade classics as meatloaf, fried chicken, pork chops, and pot pie, and if you eat all your vegetables, you may order a hand-spun milkshake for dessert! The Café is open for lunch and dinner, with prices ranging from $15-$34.99 per adult. Reservations are recommended, and they do accept the Disney Dining Plan and Tables in Wonderland.
At 50’s Prime Time Café, “Mom” is a Cast Member. She makes sure you’ve scrubbed up before you dig into your meatloaf, and she chastises those with elbows on the table. Don’t even think about talking with your mouth full!
We recently dined at 50’s Prime Time Café with friends who are like family to us, and honestly, it was the most fun I’ve ever had eating out. “Uncle Byron” was our server, and he made sure we all behaved properly. My son Adam, playing along, refused to take his ballcap off at the table, so Byron, took it away and placed it high on a shelf. His friend Noah retrieved it when Byron wasn’t looking, so Byron took away Noah’s pin lanyard and attempted to sell it to other diners! My friends Carol Beth and Allison were chatting loudly while Byron was talking, so he did not allow them to place their orders, and when Allison’s daughter Hunter ate all BUT the vegetables on her plate, Byron tried to force-feed them to her. Byron even tattle-taled to Mom about a guy at a nearby table who was playing with his “walkie-talkie” toy at the dinner table.
At the end of the meal, we asked another server, “Cousin Tairi,” to take a group picture of us with Uncle Byron and Mom. She readily agreed but wanted to be in the picture too, so she took several selfies–some with us in the background and some with just her and some with other diners coming in…It was all so funny! They say laughter is good for the digestion. Well, we all got a good dietary workout that day!

More than 50,000 pounds food go uneaten each month at Walt Disney World Resort. That provision, however, does not go to waste. The Disney Harvest Food Program in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida collects and donates the unused, prepared food to the homeless of Central Florida.
We often think of underprivileged nations suffering and in need, but 12 million children in America alone are at risk of going hungry.
A national organization, Feed the Children, has made it their goal to prevent hunger in the United States and around the world. Feed The Children accepts donations not only for food but also for other life-sustaining products. They are currently in particular need of truckloads of the following products:
• Non-Perishable Items
• Personal Hygiene
• Baby Items
• New Underwear
What can you do to help? Organize a group collection benefitting Feed the Children. You can assemble a group of like-minded friends from any area of involvement. Are you part of a homeschool support group? Are your kids in scouts? Do they attend church activities? Do they play organized sports? Do you work for a corporation who could sponsor a collection? Do you have neighbors willing to come together for a shared cause?
Get your friends together! Include your kids’ friends! Divide them into groups of five or ten and assign each group to collect an item listed above. To find a drop-off site or arrange for donation pickup, contact Feed the Children at P.O. Box 36, Oklahoma City, OK 73101, or phone 1-800-627-4556.
