    Have 3 boys 12,9,3 and have res. @ coral reef, have heard food average, and wondered if you had to choose it or 50's prime time cafe which would you choose? Want fun places for the boys! Thanks!

    Hi Jill!

         Hello to a fellow mom of three boys!  I just discovered this morning that my three boys now eat a dozen eggs at breakfast - they are going to eat me out of house and home!  If your boys have appetites like mine, I just know that they will love the 50's Prime Time Cafe.  The food is nice and "safe" - nothing too fancy.  However, the main attraction here is the service!  Whether it's Mom, Uncle Bob or Aunt Sue, the servers are absolutely hilarious and will keep your kids in stitches.  My boys love to see my husband and I being reprimanded for not eating our veggies or putting our elbows on the table.  If your server doesn't offer you a View Finder to pick your desserts, be sure to request one.  Try the S'mores - YUM!!!

         On the other hand, the Coral Reef is beautiful and every seat has a great view.  The food is good, but you will probably spend the whole time watching the fish swim by.  This is definitely a more low-key environment - not a lot of excitement here.  Honestly, I think that you and your boys will have a better time at the 50's Prime Time Cafe and save money while you are at it!!!

    Much pixie dust,
