Let’s take a look at the newly updated bracket!

Today’s Game

Today, we are back at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Two fan favorite restaurants go head to head: 50’s Primetime Cafe and the Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater!

50’s Primetime

First up, 50’s Primetime Cafe is comin’ in hot with delicious fried chicken and unique milkshakes!

At this dining location, the gimmick is that you’re all family and you’ve gone back in time to the 1950’s! So, elbows off the table or your “cousin” (server) will scold you!

YUM! Try the Peanut Butter and Jelly Milk Shake from 50's Prime Time Cafe!

I know it’s an unpopular opinion amongst Disney fans, but I personally do not love the 50’s Primetime Cafe. I didn’t enjoy pretending I was in the 1950’s.

But, lots of people love this restaurant and it easily slid into the round of 16!

Sci-fi Dine-in Theater

The Sci-fi Dine-In Theater offers unmatched theming and atmosphere. Unlike many of the restaurants in our tournament, Sci-fi Dine-in Theater offers a truly unique experience.

Most of our writing team agrees that we don’t book Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater for the food, but rather for the awesome atmosphere and the opportunity to sit in our own little car to eat!

In fact, Kenny the Pirate himself reviewed the restaurant back in August. For a most detailed overview of this restaurant, check it out!

Sci Fi Dine In Theater. It is one of my must do restaurants every Disney vacation. I love the whole drive in theater vibe. It takes me back to my youth. I love the theming at 50's Prime Time. I just think they need more menu choices.

Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater for me.

50’s Primetime Cafe got annoying for me very fast. I was pregnant when I went and the vegetables that came with my meal were giving me bad reflux, and my waiter “made me” stand in the corner for not eating my vegetables (I know I did I really have to but I was trying to be a good sport). It was funny but also embarrassing. Definitely not an experience I would recommend to introverts.
