HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS DINING OPTIONS
Table dining experience
50'S Prime Time Cafe, one of my favourite dining experiences in all of Walt Disney world. The waiting area is living rooms (1950's style ) with old tvs, and furniture, and when it is time for your family to go to your table, ma or pa calls out, " Smith family, time for dinner." Then they take you into their 1950's style kitchen, where you sit with your family at retro style tables. It gets better though, don't get caught with your elbows on the table, or any rude or unacceptable behaviour, as you will have to sit in the corner or with another family. The whole experience in this restaurant will have you holding your stomach in laughter. As for the meal itself, of course after you set your own table, is a choice of meat loaf, mashed potatoes and vegetables fried chicken, and pot roast. There are also salads and sandwiches. I should also mention that you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner here. This place is always first on my list when booking Disney Dining. One other is Whispering Canyon at the Wilderness Lodge, and I will explain later why, when I blog the resort dining options. Reservations recommended.
