Once we left Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival, we went straight to Hollywood Studios to enjoy some of the rides and attractions before our dinner reservations at 50′s Prime Time Cafe! Kevin’s cousin Christina and her new hubby honeymooned at Disney a few months before we did and suggested we eat here – I’m glad we did!
Once again, Disney does not disappoint with their theming. The lobby looks exactly like what I’d imagine a 1950s living room would look like.
There are various “kitchens” to dine in – they were all so cute!
To start, I (again, stupidly) ordered a root beer float.
The menu is pretty old school – featuring items like meat loaf and fried chicken. I was already so full from eating all day at the Food & Wine Festival…and my root beer float didn’t help, so I ordered their Chicken Caesar Salad thinking it would be nice and light.
Kevin, on the other hand, was super pumped about the menu and couldn’t make up his mind. I may be the only person in America who hates meatloaf (yuck!) so Kevin really wanted meatloaf, but he also wanted fried chicken. He was in luck because one of the entrees featured both. This was one meal that I didn’t ask to eat some of his.
Now…we were already pretty full, but of course we got dessert with our Dining Plan. I carefully studied my dessert menu and ordered the Dad’s Brownie Sundae. I thought this would be a small chunk of brownie, one scoop of ice cream and a little whipped cream on top. Instead, I was brought this platter:
The plate was the size of my dinner plate, and featured a large brownie, covered in hot fudge, with a few scoops of ice cream, probably an entire can of whipped cream, caramel corn and M&M’s. Don’t get me wrong, it was GOOD, but there was so much to eat!
Kevin ordered the hot fudge sundae and was very thankful that he ordered it instead of what I got. (You can see in the picture below my face is in shock over my dessert.)
We didn’t do too well…it hit us HARD how full we were after a few bites.
And all we wanted to do at this point included being in a horizontal position and changing out of any restricting clothing.
The food was great, but that’s not the only reason why we loved 50′s Prime Time Cafe! You see, this restaurant is SO authentic, that the waitresses are more than just that…they’re your table’s “mom.” Don’t eat your vegetables? We saw “mom” spoon-feed a grown man his green beans at the table next to us. Leave your hat on while you’re eating? “Mom” wasn’t happy. Kevin and I both got yelled at by our “mom” to get our elbows off the table quite a few times. It provided tons of entertainment while we dined there. Can’t wait to go back (on a completely empty stomach)!
Our tummies were full but we wanted to catch the Electrical Parade at Magic Kingdom, especially after going behind-the-scenes and seeing these floats in our Keys to the Kingdom Tour earlier in the week!
It was a beautiful night and we didn’t feel compelled to run here or run there to fit as much in as possible, so we grabbed a great spot on Main Street and people-watched for about an hour before the parade started. I was amazed at how early people started reserving spots (certainly don’t remember this as a kid!), so we were glad we got there early.
The parade was wonderful, but a little hard to photograph so I’ll only share a couple.
After the parade, we headed back to our resort, laid horizontally and put on non-restricting pants…just like we wanted. Our full stomachs thanked us.
The next day was our last and final day on our honeymoon. We had covered everything we wanted to see and do throughout the week, so we decided to head back to our favorite park to enjoy our last day.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather during our trip. 80′s, sunny and no rain the entire week.
We did a lot of repeats, like Splash Mountain.
I’m a screamer/hand raiser on rides…as told by this picture.
We made sure to stop by The Haunted Mansion one last time…one of our favorites! And each time we ride it, we find something new – there’s so much to experience with this one!
I, of course, had to stop by the infamous Tangled bathrooms.
We made our way back to the new Fantasyland area within Magic Kingdom to check out Enchanted Tales with Belle, the new “interactive story adventure.” I don’t want to give too much away, but the beginning of this attraction was amazing! The characters literally come to life (see Lumiere below!). It was pretty kid-centered, which is totally fine, but Kev and I are glad we did it once to see what it was all about.
And because we just happened to be in the Fantasyland area, we decided to eat at Be Our Guest again. This is a total lie. We decided after eating there earlier in the week that we loved it so much and wanted to go back, so we made FastPass+ reservations. On the Disney Dining Plan, Be Our Guest counts as a quick/counter service credit which is a way better deal than grabbing a burger at any ole joint in the park – we couldn’t help ourselves!
We ordered the same thing we did the last time…and it didn’t disappoint!
But we sat in The West Wing instead of the main ballroom. Beautiful! I joked that the only reason Kevin wanted to eat in this area is because it fake lightning/thundered every 10 minutes or so. Ha!
We were pretty full (as usual), so we took an easy after lunch and rode the TTA around the park. Such great views on the good ole TTA!
We closed out our day at Magic Kingdom with one last ride…our favorite, Space Mountain! And I was SUUUUUUPER pumped because we got the front row! Kevin graciously let me ride in the very front, since he had a chance to earlier in this week. Nice way to wrap up the week in the parks!
Now I just have ONE more Honeymoon Recap post for you guys. I know, I know – I’ve dragged it out as much as possible and I’m sorry if you’re annoyed and ready for me to move on, but readers should also remember that I love to look back at my writing and use it as a way to remember these fun memories, so I appreciate you reading through these! But you really won’t want to miss the last post because it’s about our absolute favorite meal and dining experience both of us have ever had or experienced in our lives!
