    Re: 50s Prime Time vs. Sci-Fi Dine In

    I went in solo once at the Sci Fi Dine. The cast members sat me at the back of one of the cars and a mother with her two children were seated in the front. The kids were acting kind of crazy and I didn't want to ruin their experience or my own so I asked to be seated somewhere else. The Cast Members were very polite and allowed me to change to an open seat. The food was great from what I remember.

    The movie reel is short but I believe it is designed to be that way. Having a reel too long would entice guests to stay longer and thus it would take longer to cycle guests through the resteraunt and their dining experience.

    I have never eaten at the 50's Cafe it's always packed when I go.

    Re: 50s Prime Time vs. Sci-Fi Dine In

    hmm, well thank you all for your insightful comments and help.

    I think I'm gonna go for Sci-Fi. I don't really care for being hounded while eating. Why do you think I'm not taking my grandmother? Although I get "remember to replace your lipstick after you eat". But it's sorta the same thing...

    I'm going in December and my aunt suggested making a reservation now. Do you think I should?

    well they should make it more reasonable to the length of a meal. We were a party of 2 with no appetizers... and I saw the film loop 2.5 times. Wayyy too short

    You can do PS 180 days before hand. Personally I would do it to get exactly what I want.

    I LOVE the 50s Prime Time!! Great menus, fun atmosphere no matter where you sit, great deserts and fun theme that the Cast really plays up! (Oh.. and you can replaces those veggies for things like potatos if you just ask.)

    A trip to MGM would not be complete without a visit to Sci-fi; I LOVE IT. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is wonderful.

    Prime Time is a good experience as well, but more hit and miss. It's great if your server is "playing along", but just a dinner if your server is just delivering the food.

    If I had to pick only one, I'd pick Sci-fi for lunch. This summer we're doing both; Sci-fi for lunch and Prime Time for dinner. I hope we get Uncle Charlie again!

    Re: 50s Prime Time vs. Sci-Fi Dine In

    i prefer prime time to sci-fi. I just love the fact that your eating in a 50s themed kitchen and your server, which is your mom, aunt, cousin, or uncle play with you alot. I had uncle tommy when i was there and he was so awesome!!! i hope he is still there. Plus there are many different food options you can get there and i love looking thru those old time binocular looking toys and you can see different pics of desserts and choose that way. and sci-fi is alright if you just wanna eat hamburgers in a car.

    I feel sooooo old when view-masters aren't common-place anymore

    Anyways, I know you made up your mind, but I'd still recommend 50's, it's deffinately a fun experience (unless you get a bad waiter/waitress, which is very rare).
    I'm doing Sci-Fi for the first time my next trip, and am looking forward to it!

    I am probably going to eat at 50's this September.

    How good is 'Mom' about substitutions, like say swapping out one veggie for another ?

    Re: 50s Prime Time vs. Sci-Fi Dine In

    I like the atmosphere at both restaurants very much but prefer the food at 50's Prime Time Cafe. They are both very interesting experiences, so it's really up to your preference. Would you prefer dining at a drive-through or in Mom's kitchen?
