Not as hyped.

This place was recommended by our hotel concierge as 'someplace fun and different within walking distance' Well, in Addison everything is so spread out there aren't many places that close. The service was slow enough that we decided to get a drink and an appetizer, then leave. The food we got was... read more

We were met by Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Laura Croft, and many other interesting people. The food was pretty good, a bit pricey but who can complain when Laura Croft delivers it to your table!! We were told that other days they dress as super heroes and other fictional characters . After we ate we did a walk through... More

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. When I was a young adult I came here often (around ten years ago) I had fond memories. We came here last Saturday (of course after I had hyped it up to 6 other adults). It was a terrible experience. We had to wait twenty minutes to get seated (our party of 12 was seated at... More

We came here thinking we would have something different. What we got was unenthusiastic staff and poor food. We had to wait for a table in s restaurant that was half empty, then another 20 minutes for drinks. The salad bar was empty, so no luck there. I got the steak that was overdone and like a puck. My wife's... More

I brought a group of my employees here pumping it as a great time, but it was very dull and boring compared to others I've visited. Food was delicious with a lot of offerings, salad bar looked like it had been a while since it was refreshed. Wait staff was not as entertaining as I've witnessed at other Magic Time... More

The place is really cute and all the eating places are enclosed. It was a really cute place for dinner but the food wasn't very good and it's really not kid friendly. As far as kids they had a very limited menu and no crayons or anything for children. They did have the servers dressed as characters but out server... More

We took our kids and our kids' friends for a mid-week dinner. There were 7 of us in total and the waiter charged an automatic gratuity. I don't like that practice at all. Service was fine, and the restaurant employees were friendly. But the food (quality and taste) was very, very average. The salmon was OK. The blackened catfish was... More

We had family in town for Christmas and spent the day in DFW. We decided on MTM for dinner and had a fun time. The kids loved the characters and the food was good. I was surprised at some of the bad reviews. I definitely recommend if you have kids.

This was our first time here. We had a group of 9 with 5 of this being children and were quickly seated. We sat in the space capsule which was a little tight for that size party but not unbearable. This place is funky with themed rooms and servers dressed in costume, and it seems they enjoy playing the part.... More
