When we think of the 50s, 'I Love Lucy' and the cute vintage updos probably come to mind and everyone having dinner together in the kitchen with the little box tv; But long gone is the golden age of boxy tubes, classy up-dos, and dates in your cutest polka dot dress. If you feel like you should have been born in a different time you can relive the past with a bite to eat at this retro-inspired cafe in Orlando.
When you step foot into 50s Prime Time Cafe at Disney's Hollywood Studios, it will feel like a literal step back into another time. This retro-decked cafe is reminiscent of those 50s family sitcom sets - it's almost too perfect from the old school finishes to the kitchen replicas, oh and that gaudy wallpaper too.
The menu features that home cooking like the good ol' days. You'll find things savory meals like mama used to make such as meatloaf, fried chicken & pot roast - and they're some GENEROUS portions; and of course, you can't forget desserts like warm apple pie, cutesy cupcakes, and a classic milkshake. All while watching a classic 50s Sitcom on the little boxxy tube.
The entire vibe is SPOT ON for giving that cute 50s feel - You can check out some photos from 50s Prime Time Cafe below:
Probably one of the best parts: the staff's little schtick is to harp ya with sayings like, 'Don't forget to eat your vegetables' or 'Make sure you clean your plate' - and don't you dare be caught with those elbows on the table, you'll get a playful scolding!
There's no denying that Disney knows how to execute an amazing themed space - as proven here at 50s Prime Time and at their Retro-Inspired Drive-in diner also at Hollywood Studios, which also has an AMAZING vibe.
Everything about it sings of the 50s golden era and it's totally Instagrammable - especially for those looking for that vintage aesthetic. If you're just a fan of all things vintage, you can travel back in time at 50s Prime Time.
