50’s Prime Time Cafe- Disney’s Hollywood Studios

If your kids like comfort food, then 50’s Prime Time Cafe is the place to go for lunch and dinner while in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  This all-American cafe is like walking into Mom’s kitchen from the 1950s.

Kids will enjoy looking at all of the decorations and watching the old table tv that places popular clips from the 1955 era.  There isn’t anything super fancy about the menu here, but we love having good fried chicken while enjoying the atmosphere of the cafe.

Enjoy a meal and a show while eating in a drive-in theatre right in the middle of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Kids will love being able to sit in a car-shaped booth while watching clips of sci-fi movies on the big screen.  

The lunch and dinner menu offers basic food, but kids might enjoy the classic options found here.  Keep in mind that the restaurant is darker because of the films being shown.

This retro soda fountain is sure to be a hit with kids and adults.  Serving not only great food but also amazing ice cream, Beaches and Cream is a top choice for kids.
