Everyone has a favorite, and my favorite restaurant at Walt Disney World is Liberty Tree Tavern. From Colonial America theming to the all-you-can-eat Thanksgiving Dinner, I cannot get enough of this place. Let’s take an in-depth look at this classic Magic Kingdom restaurant.
Located in Liberty Square, this restaurant is New England-themed, and keeping with the theme of Liberty Square, there are no restrooms. FUN FACT: the brown on the sidewalk is supposed to represent the river of poo (not Pooh) that flowed down New England streets, as people would have thrown their waste out the window from the buckets that they used. HOWEVER, if you climb the stairs at Liberty Tree Tavern, you will find bathrooms in the restaurant. Another fun fact: the stairs will actually lead you out of Liberty Square, which means the restrooms are outside of Liberty Square which means that HA! The Imagineers kept with the theming.
There are 6 rooms, each themed to an historical American figure. The dining rooms are Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross, George Washington, John Paul Jones, Thomas Jefferson, and Paul Revere. Each room has fireplaces or wood paneling or other artifacts inspired by its host. Be sure to take the opportunity to look around the room you are dining in to see the detail that only Imagineers can master. Liberty Tree Tavern used to feature character dining, with Mickey, Pluto, Goofy, Chip and Dale, etc would be dressed in their Colonial finest, but, alas, that has gone by the wayside. (Please, Disney, bring back the characters!)
Keeping with the colonial theming, you will dine on a traditional all-American Thanksgiving dinner. And it’s all family-style and all-you-can-eat! Each table will start out with a delicious salad and rolls, then you will receive your Patriot’s Platter, which has turkey, pot roast, and pork, mashed potatoes, stuffing, macaroni and cheese, vegetables, and cranberry sauce. Then, you’ll wrap up with the second most popular dessert at Walt Disney World: ooey gooey toffee cake!
This is my favorite, and one of my family’s favorite, places to eat, and we go nearly every single trip. We truly love when they welcome us from the Territory of Ohio! Have you had the pleasure of dining here? What did you think?! Ready to book your trip? Contact me today!!
