We were at Mousefest and were able to eat at the 50's Prime Time for the first time. I have always wanted to go there, but DH is a little shy and I wasn't sure he would react real well to the "show" there and might get embarrassed. This trip was a girls trip so we tried it out.
We had an ADR for 2:30 so a somewhat late lunch which worked out perfect. I almost didn't write the ADR # down but thank goodness I did. I had our TA make the reservation for us so I hadn't actually spoke to anyone. We arrived at the front desk and they didn't have any reservation under my name but she did look up with the ADR# and found that it was for the day before...oops. Not sure who's fault that was (probably mine!) but she said they would take care of us. We waited for about ten minutes before being taken back. The waiting area is so well themed as different living rooms with tvs, couches, shag rugs, etc.
When they came to get us the gentleman that came to seat us was very in character. He was being somewhat smart alecky and was really funny. He told us we had better do our chores when we sat down. I assumed that meant taking the things from the basket on the table and setting the table with the napkins and silverware. Apparently I was correct because when our waitress came she was very happy we had taken care of that! She awared us of the fact that there was no crying or whining, etc. She was very nice and took our order.
As we were waiting for our order this little boy two tables over started to cry and the waiter started yelling.."hey hey hey...there's no crying in here" The parents cracked up when they saw the look on the little one's face. He couldn't understand why this man was making such a fuss! The food came quickly. I ordered the fried chicken, mashed potatos, and corn. It was wonderful. Just like Mom would make :grin: A family sat down next to us and Grandma got in trouble for putting her elbows on the table. Her grandson thought it was great that she got in trouble instead of him. Then his Dad put his elbows on the table and the son was desperately trying to get him to stop or he knew he would get in trouble too. The grandson and Ihad a wonderful conversation about how many times we had been to Disney, what our favorite ride was, etc. He was a pleasant little boy. While we were chatting the waitress stopped in front of our table and looked through the window behind me and as we watched she yelled at the people at the table behind us telling them she could see them through the window. It was a riot.
I ordered the Smores for dessert and they were melt in your mouth good. Whatever kind of chocolate they were using was absolutely wonderful! The decor of the restaurant was so fun to look at....vintage tvs, formica countertops...it was neat to see some knick knacks that had been in my house when I was growing up.
The experience was wonderful...food was great, and the entertainment was excellent. I don't think that DH would have been that embarrassed as they play along as much as you want to. It's always done in great fun and silliness.
I would definately make an ADR to eat here again on future visits. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for reading! :thumbs:
