Love them both, but I would give the edge to 50's PT as far as food goes. Their fried chicken meal is to die for!

Now, atmosphere-wise, Sci-Fi is pretty cool and my kids liked it, but they liked watching their daddy getting yelled at for putting his elbows on the table even more over at 50's PT.

I prefer 50's over Sci-fi.

I just can't get into Sci-fi, I really wish I could.

Good Luck and Enjoy!

We've eaten at both and 50's Prime Time wins hands down. To be honest, I was VERY nervous to go, because our daughter is painfully shy. I was afraid that she wouldn't like the joking around or 'scolding'....well, I couldn't have been more wrong. She got into it more than we did!! She had SOOO much fun trying to get me and her dad 'in trouble' with our cousin and she just laughed and laughed the whole dinner. The food was fantastic, the service was incredible. It was like you were in a show for dinner. We would go again in a heartbeat.

You can't go wrong with either!! I will say after having typical disney food all week my belly appreciated some home cooking at 50s prime time.

I agree

that they are both good choices but 50'wins out for u from a food standpoint and I love it when my wife gets caught doing something wrong and ends up being punished lol

Are the desserts at 50's included on the dining plan?

I would definitely choose Prime Time.
The food was better, IMO, and the atmosphere was much better, especially the service.

We had super service at Sci Fi and were pretty much ignored at 50's Primetime. I guess that you never know.

Neither one will set the world on fire when it comes to food but 50's Primetime probably has a better 'normal' selection. Check out the menus in the restaurant area of this site if you haven't yet.

PT 50s' ! Don't care for the seating a SciFi you sit in cars and face the screen, not much social interaction with your family.

Ok - going to go against the group and say that my kids loved Sci-Fi last time. They were 4 and 7 and loved sitting/eating in the cars. I haven't been to 50s PT but the home cooking/getting scolded thing just doesn't appeal to me.

My daughter and I are going to both on our upcoming trip because I can't choose! Early lunch at Sci-Fi and late dinner at 50's. Love the food and atmosphere at both, and since my kiddo is super picky the menus at both are right up her alley! Good luck with your decision - can't go wrong with either!
