Just Dessert?

I haven't been on in awhile (I do these things, I'm active for awhile, I drop off the face of the Internet, and then I'm right back on again, and it cycles, but I digress), and I have a question for you WDW-philes. Have you ever gone into a table service restauant and order only dessert? I ask this because I highly doubt I can talk mein sister into going to the 50's Prime Time Cafe for dinner (I talked about this with her once, and she said there was nothing on the menu that interested her, entree wise). Just curious, thanks!

DH and I have gone to LTT several times and only ordered the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake. We also go to the Tune-In Lounge instead of the 50's PT Cafe. We get our milkshakes and we don't need an ADR.

Forgive the ignorance, but what's an ADR? I'm not familiar with every single Disney acronym out there.

Dessert only? Yes. Many, many times. And if there's a lounge associated with the restaurant, it's pretty easy to walk up and get a table.

Have you ever considered doing the Afternoon Tea at Garden View Cafe at the Grand Floridian? It seems that that might be something suitable for you if all you care about are desserts.

Personally, I would fee uncomfortable going to a table service restaurant and ordering just desserts. I'm sure they don't mind, but I feel like I'm short-changing the server, because I'm sitting at his/her table and she won't be making as much out of me as opposed to a full diner.

Certainly, as has been mentioned, going to restaurant with a bar or lounge might be a better alternative, where you can order desserts or appetizers and not feel as if you're occupying space of other regular diners.

I have, many times! No one blinked an eye about it, I tend to tip on the high side for it, especially if I'm dragging it out with coffee and conversation. It's best to do this not right in the middle of the meal rushes, but at more "off" times.

Thanks for your input everybody. Another alternative is I could just to to Prime Time withOUT my sister, and she can go eat somewhere else.

The Tune in Lounge in HS, which is the adjoining bar for 50's PT cafe, also serves the entire 50's PT cafe menu. If your sister likes cocktails and milkshakes, she can get those at Tune-in Lounge and you can get your 50's meal there too.
