We have dined multiple times at the 50′s Prime Time Cafe. I really enjoyed the fried chicken dish and the milkshakes. The 50′s Prime Time Cafe milk shakes have to be some of the best in Disney World. My wife had the 50′s Prime Time Cafe chicken pot pie as well as the pot roast. She loved both, but really liked the S’mores.
