    Hello love the panel =) I read everday. I have ADR at Sci-Fi but am thinking about switching to 50"s Cafe. I have never eaten at either one which would you choose Is it possible just to order a desert at one to see both resturaunts. 3 kids 12,10,9. o

    Hi, Christina! I enjoy both the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater as well as the 50s Prime Time Cafe. Sci-Fi is dark and the cars/tables are arranged so that everyone is facing the screen. The Prime Time is light, airy and everyone sits at vintage tables with your server dishing up more than eats. They really become a part of the experience by jesting with your group. I think your kids would enjoy both experiences, but if anyone is shy, you may consider Sci-Fi over Prime Time. On the flip side, if you'd rather have a knee-slapping good time, Sci-Fi can get kind of boring since it's hard to talk to each other in the cars and the vintage movies/commercials get kinda old during the time you're there for your meal. You probably can order just dessert at each of the restaurants...however, since both have really good fare, I wouldn't miss out on the chance to sample an entree. I hope this helps you narrow down your choices, and thanks for the sweet compliments! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
