Disney Dining Review of Liberty Tree Tavern at Magic Kingdom – Walt Disney World

 

If you have been following our blog then you may remember that on my most recent vacation with my family to the Walt Disney World Resort, one night of our trip I met up with some of my wonderful Kingdom Magic Vacations Travel Planner friends and we enjoyed a very fun night at Storybook Dining at Artist Point! On this same evening, my parents headed to the Magic Kingdom to enjoy a meal at a restaurant they had both never been to before, Liberty Tree Tavern. They loved their experience here so much that we are now talking about all making a reservation here together on our next trip! I am very excited about this because I have never dined here but I have always wanted to! Now hearing how much my parents enjoyed their meal  I am all the more excited to check Liberty Tree Tavern out for myself!  I sat down with my parents and they described their dinner experience.  I will share with you now what they told me.

 

 

They were looking for a last minute reservation and really wanted a sit down meal at Magic Kingdom instead of counter service.  They checked on My Disney Experience and were able to secure a reservation at Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Tree Tavern for the exact time they wanted.  They checked in at the restaurant and were told to have a seat in the waiting area, which was very Colonial looking with a field stone hearth in the center.  When their table was ready, the hostess announced from across the room “Hear Ye Hear Ye Liberty Tree Tavern welcomes the Przychodzien Family from Pennsylvania”.  The restaurant has a few different rooms and is decorated in a Colonial Williamsburg theme.

 

 

Their server explained that the meal would be all you care to enjoy and that they could ask for more of anything that they liked.  Dinner rolls and a large bowl of salad came out first.  Both my parents loved the salad and said it was so fresh and the dressing was light and very delicious.

 

 

Since it was just the two of them, they were each served their own plate with all of the food offerings on it.  Other larger parties were served family style with large platters of the food that they could plate themselves.  The meal consisted of roast turkey breast, pot roast, carved pork with mashed potatoes, stuffing, dressing, green beans and cranberry.  They also received a bowl of mac and cheese.  They both enjoyed their meals very much and said it was just like your traditional Thanksgiving feast without all of the work!  They loved the turkey breast and pot roast best and said that all the sides were very good.  Neither of them asked for seconds of anything because they said the portion size they received was big enough, they could not finish it all and they still had dessert coming!

 

 

A platter of three desserts were brought to them which consisted of warm banana cake with butter pecan ice cream-salted caramel and candied pecans, apple fritters with powdered sugar and maple caramel and then their famous ooey gooey toffee cake.  They said all three desserts were good but the best was the ooey gooey toffee cake, which is their signature dessert.  They said it lived up to the hype!

 

 

The meal was $38.00 a person for guests ages 10 and over and $21.00 for guests 3 to 9.  My parents felt it was an excellent value for everything you got with beverages and dessert included.  Like I said earlier they plan to return to this restaurant and next time I am making sure I am with them to experience all this yummy food for myself!

Disney’s Grand Floridian Cafe Video! Walt Disney World Restaurant

 

Disney’s Grand Floridian Café is a hidden gem, located at Disney’s luxurious Grand Floridian Resort and Spa at the Walt Disney World Resort! This table service restaurant can be found just off of the resort’s main lobby. It is quite, tucked away and truly grand! The restaurant’s décor and atmosphere is themed in an elegant and Victorian style just like the rest of this beautiful resort. The menu here has something for everyone. It is classic comfort food done in a sophisticated style! My personal favorite that I get every time is The Café Sandwich. This hot sandwich is served open-faced with ham, roasted turkey, bacon and tomato. It is then topped with a creamy boursin cheese sauce and served with a side of freshly made onion rings. Other popular items here include the Lobster ‘Thermidor’ Burger, the Buttermilk-fried Chicken and Miso-glazed Salmon.

 

 

During breakfast and lunch this restaurant features the same brunch-style menu. A well-known item here is the restaurant’s benedicts! They offer eggs benedict in several variations including the Traditional Eggs Benedict, the Spicy Chorizo Benedict and the Lobster Benedict! If you can’t make up your mind you can go for the Benedict flight which has all three of these signature benedicts!

 

 

I recommend this dining location as a great place to escape Magic Kingdom mid-day to come have a wonderful meal. You can easily access the Grand Floridian from the Magic Kingdom via a boat or monorail. Your commute over to the resort from the park take only a few minutes so coming here for a meal is a great time to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the parks. You can sit down and relax at one of Disney Worlds most peaceful resorts and allow yourself to refuel and be refreshed to then head back into the parks for an awesome night!

NEW IllumiNations Dining Package Coming to Epcot’s Rose & Crown! Walt Disney World

 

2019 is going to be a very big year for Walt Disney World! There are many new and exciting attractions and experiences coming to the park THIS YEAR! One of the new changes that we can look forward to seeing later this year is the brand-new Epcot night-time spectacular! I personally am so excited to see what this new show will bring to Epcot. However, the bitter-sweet part about this is that the well-loved current Epcot show, IllumiNation: Reflection of Earth will be ending later this year to make way for the new replacement show. I will be sad to see IllumiNations leave, I have many memories watching this show and singing along to it’s amazing soundtrack after a fun-filled day in Epcot!

 

 

I am definitely going to be sure to catch IllumiNations as often as I can in these next few months before it is gone. IllumiNation: Reflection of Earth will be ending its run before the end of this summer of 2019 to make way for Epcot’s new night-time spectacular. If you also want to catch IllumiNations before it leaves the park later this year then you are in luck because Disney has announced a great new dining package that will give you the chance to enjoy a great meal and take in the show from an incredible vantage point!

 

 

This new dining package is offered at The Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room located in Epcot’s United Kingdom Pavilion. The package will include a meal with seating on The Rose & Crown Pub’s patio! From the patio of this restaurant you will enjoy a fantastic view of IllumiNations! The perspective of the show that you get from this location is breathtaking! You are so close to the lagoon and can feel like you are immersed in the show! Another pro to getting this special reserved seating is not having to wait hours to get a perfect view anywhere else in the park. IllumiNations is a very popular show and crowds are sure to be even larger these next few month as it is the last few presentation of the show. Many guests will plan to get an up-close spot hours before the show begins. Due to this you may have a hard time finding an unobstructed viewing area to watch the show. You can choose to wait far in advance for that perfect fireworks spot but everyone knows your time on vacation is so valuable that’s why a package like this is a wonderful option to help you make the most of your time in the park!

 

 

This dining package includes a prix fixe menu which features Rose & Crown favorites AND unlimited alcoholic beverages (for guests 21 and over) as well as a wide selection of non-alcoholic beverages! The meal offerings for the IllumiNations Dining Package features your choice of a Scotch Egg or the United Kingdom Cheese Platter as your starter.

 

 

For your entrée, your choices include Rose & Crown’s signature Fish and Chips, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Pan-roasted Scottish Salmon, or Bangers and Mash. For dessert, you will enjoy a Pudding Platter Trio featuring Sticky Toffee Pudding, English Trifle, and Chocolate Nougat Bar.

 

 

As always Disney has thought of everyone in the party! Kids can get their own prix fixe package. This kid’s meal will offer soup or salad with their choice of Cheese and Turkey Flatbread, Turkey Meatball Pasta, Cheesy Pasta, or Fish and Chips as well as either Fruit Salad or Trifle for dessert.

 

 

Bookings will open on January 17th for reservations starting on January 18th. The price is $85 for adults and $35 for children (tax and gratuity included). I am so excited about this new offering and definitely want to check this experience out for myself! As I mentioned before this is a great way to guarantee you will get an incredible view of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth so that you can see it to its fullest before the replacement show comes later this year.

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant

Do dinner and a show ’50s-style at this drive-in “theater,” featuring all-American cuisine and sci-fi movie clips. Quite possibly the coolest restaurant at Walt Disney World, Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is one place you and your family can’t miss out on.

Your car hop will take you to your car-shaped booth or table where you’ll get a perfect view of the screen that airs vintage and scary clips of aliens, mummies, robots, and even Walt Disney, himself! Take in all around you at your fellow drive-in diners, vintage memorabilia, and the twinkling stars above and you know you’ll be back before you even place your order.

For those 21 and older, you have plenty of drink options from beer, wine, sangria, and cosmic concoctions like the Magical Star Cocktail, Long Island Lunar Tea, or the Godiva Chocolate Martini which is made with Godiva Chocolate Liqueur and Stoli Vanil Vodka.

Start your dinner with an appetizer like their fried dill pickles or crispy onion rings before moving on to your entree. Choose from seemingly endless choices that include multiple burger, pasta, and sandwich options including the Southern burger topped with a fried green tomato, blackened shrimp pasta in a four-cheese sauce, or the tasty vegetarian falafel burger on a brioche bun.

Just like ending a Marvel movie with the sneak peek after all the credits, hang around for dessert and try the house-made Sci-Fi candy bar, turtle cheesecake, or the classic hot fudge sundae.

Disney’s Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is located at Hollywood Studios. You can get there by the complimentary bus system, water taxis, or you can park your car. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance.
