Tucked away at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, next to Echo Lake, you’ll find the kitschy 50’s Prime Time Cafe.  While this restaurant is easily noticeable, there’s a little hidden gem that not too many notice while walking past.  The Tune-In Lounge is a lovely, 50s style, bar/lounge where adults can grab a drink and beat the Florida heat!

No reservations are needed for the Tune-In Lounge. Simply belly-up to the bar, and order a beer or a cocktail - or try one of their signature drinks (which change by season).  My personal favorite is the ‘Electric Lemonade’ - not only do the ice cubes light up, but the lemonade has an adult twist!  

Whimsical 50s style decorations adorn the lounge, the living room area, as well as “Dad’s Den”! You can enjoy clips from nostalgic 50s sitcoms on vintage TV’s scattered throughout the room, and sitting above the bar. This lounge serves as the waiting area for 50’s Prime Time Cafe. All are welcome in the lounge, but it is 21 and up only at the bar.  Whether you are passing through for a cocktail or enjoying a before-dinner drink, be sure to tip your bartender!

Keep the Tune-In Lounge on your must-do list of adult stops while visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort!
