Liberty Tree Tavern, Magic Kingdom! My thoughts….

tmsm

The last time I went to Disney, I was looking through my travel books trying to decide another sit down meal for the Magic Kingdom. We always go to the Crystal Palace, which we did earlier that week, but I wanted to try something new. I came across Liberty Tree Tavern, and decided to reserve it for our second trip to the MK that week. Trying something different sounded like a good plan.

When our awesome vacation finally came, and we were on day 5 (our second trip to the MK) it was time to eat. Liberty Tree Tavern is in Liberty Square. I’ve passed it many times before, making the rounds near the Haunted Mansion. We went inside to check in, and my first impression was “oh”. That was it. It has that rustic, Colonial period atmosphere. Not sure what I was expecting, but it was like stepping our of the Magic, and stepping back in time. I wasn’t sure I wanted to eat there, it didn’t seem like the other restaurants I’ve eaten at before while at Disney. I decided to be adventurous and give it a go. I’m so glad I did.

When we sat down, we were greeted right away. Our servers name was Russell. Yes, I remember his name, because he was one of the best we’ve ever had, he was great. The food at Liberty Tree is served family style. The first items brought were salad and bread. Then a huge variety of home style dinner choices arrived. We had a plate with turkey, beef, and pork on it, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, veggies, gravy, etc…. Oh my!! The food was outstanding. I was really amazed at how good everything was, it was even better than home made. We ate, and ate, and ate….. Then, in usual Disney fashion, Russell brought us dessert. It was an apple dish with vanilla ice cream. Being that it wasn’t chocolate, I wasn’t sure my kids would like it. I was SO wrong! Everyone devoured that delicious dessert pretty quickly! My family left Liberty Tree Tavern happy and full!

With all the times I have been to Disney World, and as many times as I’ve walked past, I can’t believe I had never tried Liberty Tree Tavern before. I had learned to not judge a book by it’s cover. While Liberty Tree didn’t have that usual fantasy-like appearance, it sure did have that same Disney quality. In conclusion, if you have never been to Liberty Tree Tavern, I would highly recommend that you give it a try. If you want to have an amazing dining experience, and leave full and happy, then Liberty Tree Tavern is the place to go. Oh, and you can stop by the Christmas store while you’re there, it’s close by!

  1. I agree with almost everything about this post. The one thing I sort of clash with is saying that walking into Liberty Tree is like stepping out of Disney Magic and stepping back in time. To me, that is the magic of this particular restaurant! It’s exactly what Disney was going for, so if you get that feeling of stepping back in time, to me that’s just as magical as anything else in the parks, albeit for different reasons. And yes, the food is always outstanding; I’ve literally never been disappointed. But, to anyone that has only eaten here for dinner, you MUST try lunch! It’s a different format, not family-style. And it is amazing. They have a fish that is similar to what they serve at dinner, basically Thanksgiving on a plate that is outstanding. And the pot roast…it used to be called Yankee Pot Roast, I think it’s something like “Liberty Pot Roast,” now; not sure…either way, also fantastic. You can’t go wrong with anything. Try both meals. Eat there multiple times. So good!

    Couldn’t agree more. Great place. I remember when this was a character dining format. Mickey and Minnie would be dressed in old Colonial wardrobe. Still great meal.

    This is a “must” place to eat for our family when we are at WDW! Great for Disney kids of any age 🙂
