Walkie-talkies at the table

When I last left you, we were heading through the raindrops to our lunch reservation, which was at 50’s Prime Time Café. For us, it was a choice between that or Sci-Fi Dine In, but with seven of us, we couldn’t have all been seated in a car together at Sci-Fi. Plus, I knew they’d have some good “home cooking” types of things to choose from at 50’s that Poppy would like.

We got to 50’s early, and I couldn’t resist taking a picture of the cast member checking us in, he was so George McFly looking. They had more nerds back in the 50’s.



The kids hadn’t shown up yet, so we waited in the living room.



The kids arrived right on time and we were seated shortly thereafter. Cousin Tiffany was our server and was really good. She was attentive and timely whenever we needed something and gave us a nice amount of the grief that they’re famous for at 50’s Prime Time. In fact, she got on my case pretty quickly saying, “Why’re you playing with your walkie talkie at the table?”, when she caught me looking at my iPhone.



When Tiffany took our drink orders Poppy ordered a root beer, which the girls thought was pretty funny since that’s what James likes too. (They’re soooo alike!) You may even remember the “More root beer!” chapter from my last trip report. The rest of us got vanilla cokes. They’re such a treat since we can’t find them anywhere else. Judy said that she drank way too many of them.

One thing we discovered is that 50’s Prime Time has discontinued serving sandwiches. We asked Tiffany about that and she said that they recently went to one menu for lunch and dinner. That made the decisions tougher for the girls since they were planning on ordering the sandwich they’d gotten the last time.

Judy ordered some onion rings as an appetizer, remembering how good these were the last time we ate here. And what’s better than an order of onion rings?



Two orders of onion rings! (I think Poppy and Gram put one on their order.)

Another time when Tiffany came out I almost spilled my drink, trying to hide my walkie-talkie. The kids thought that was pretty funny.

As we were waiting for our food, some Streetmosphere people came through. They must use the restaurant as their entrance to the park. The last guy stopped to talk to us for a little bit. He said to Lauren, “You’ll make some young man very unhappy someday.” It was hilarious.



Then he gave James a fake hundred dollar bill and said, “Here’s a hundred dollars, give it to your driver tonight -- it’s the least you can do.”



It was fun to have them come through and joke around.

Then our meals arrived. James wanted to get the fried chicken and we knew the portions were big, so I split it with him. I figured I’d also get some other scraps, here and there…and I was right, Judy gave me some of hers.



Judy got the pot roast. This is so good.



Poppy’s meatloaf. He likes anything he can put ketchup on. He and Gram shared this.



Marlene got “Cousin Barry’s Olive Oil Poached Salmon”. She liked it, and said that the salmon was kind of dry but the mushrooms made up for it -- they were really, really good.



We don’t have a picture of Lauren’s meal, and can’t remember what she got, but it was probably one of these dishes or I would have taken a picture of it.

I went with James to the restroom and had to laugh at this sign. I saw them at every park throughout the week. Thank you Brawny, for the hand washing tips.



When I got back to the table, a couple of people wanted dessert, so we got two of these brownie sundae things to share. It was a brownie with ice cream, hot fudge, M&M’s, and caramel popcorn.



Here’s Marlene and Lauren with their dessert.



I tried to take a picture of Poppy and Gram with their dessert, but with nothing in the center of the frame, the camera didn’t focus correctly or get the exposure right.



As I was lining up the camera for another try, Tiffany walked by and totally photobombed the shot. I knew she was doing it of course, but Poppy and Gram were totally oblivious. I loved it! And why shouldn’t our cousin be in the picture?



I had a couple of bites of the dessert and it was pretty good, as you’d expect from a brownie and ice cream. I didn’t get any popcorn in my bites though -- that was a combo I wasn’t interested in trying.

With that, an enjoyable meal at 50’s Prime Time was behind us and it was time to get back into our ponchos and see what else we could do in the Debby-drenched park.

Does partial Judy count?? I'm almost sure that's her arm and hand (with the fork in it) in the Pot Roast pic!

I think there are more nerds now they just call themselves hipsters .

The food does look really good! I don't know about that dessert though, I would probably be hyper for days!

Yes, partial Judy's count. You're right, that is her arm and hand in the pot roast pic. But, as Yoda once said, "there is another....".

I guess that's the beauty of sharing a dessert with a few teenagers....there's no risk of getting more than a couple of bites.

Believe me, it's not too far off from Poppy and Gram's either! In fact, I almost put in the post that we had an end table like that 2-tier one that Gram is sitting next to in the "living room" waiting area. Only ours was a blonde veneer, which was probably even more of a 50's fad.

The food at 50's is so good and so hard to choose from! Both the chicken and the pot roast would be my favs! Love how Cousin Tiffany photo bombed your pic Sharing dinners and desserts is a perfect idea considering the portion sizes at Disney are so huge!

Looks like a fun lunch! Funny about the waitress photobombing with Poppy and Gram! I've noticed alot of the menus are the same for lunch and dinner, and the prices are the same too - so basically you don't have a lunch menu. So many changes.

Popcorn in the ice cream that just sounds horrid. Sorry.

What a fun update and very good to know (although a bummer) that they've gone to just one menu. That's tough as those are big meal items for lunch, too big for me anyway. We were there in 2009 and it was definitely a different salmon.

Too funny on the meatloaf. Santa brought Evan a Disney Cookbook in his stocking (recipes from WDW, DCL and Adventures by Disney) and he made us the 50's PTC meatloaf for dinner last night!

It was quite tasty. It was pretty funny though, I was looking at it briefly and noted that at the bottom of the page it said MGM Studios! Checked the original printing and yep, 2004. Made me smile as that's when we went there for the first time.

I'm really glad they have those tips there. If they didn't have that helpful information, I might try to dry my hands with soap.
