Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Discussion Thread

p. 149 - Tiana's Bayou Adventure opening on June 28th!

Recommended Posts

My family and I always enjoy eating at the liberty tree at lunch. The menu is different from the supper menu which is still family style I think. The potroast is great.

There are certainly places to eat at the park, but what I mean is that nothing really "stands out" at Magic Kingdom. We usually kind of meander around, and end up at some place like Pecos Bill or Cosmic Rays out of lack of anything better. Liberty Tree is one of place places that may be fine for some people, but just "isn't for us." No offense, but the menu seems not very inspired as Hamburgers, Salads, Pasta, Roast Turkey, Mac & Cheese, and Pot Roast all served up "family style" is just kind of... I dunno, seems very "Golden Corral" sounding to me. Sorry.


I'm sure it may be good, but it just doesn't scream "signature restaurant" to me. We haven't tried Tony's, and we keep meaning too, but I think if we want something Italian on Disney property, it's really hard not to eat at Via Napoli.


We did Cinderella's Royal Table once, and I thought it was just awful. We were rushed through the meal, the food was just "strange", and I don't even think Elissa or Kristen ate anything. If I remember right, we went to Cosmic Rays afterwards! It was seriously one of the worst Disney meals we've ever had.

The liberty tree lunch is not served family style only supper. I agree with you on the castle. My wife and I ate there several years ago and did not like it, and we are not picky eaters. I also agree with you on the yak and the yeti. It's worth going to animal kingdom.

The new beauty and the beast restaurant, is supposed to be a signature dinning experience.


I booked our dinner reservations for july, and I had a hard time deciding what restaurants to eat at in magic kingdom. There just is not that many choices as there is in the other Disney parks.

How about "The Wicked Queen's Cauldron Bar & Gril"? All the drinks would have vapor rising from them and you could dine in a dungeon.


Just dont get the apple pie...


But I would much rather have the meet and greet there, and a new roller coaster/dark ride to replace it. I just hope that all of the effects and animatronics, just remain kept up and not left to rot, (Like Splash Mountain, Small World, Everest, Dinosaur, etc.)


Maybe the money will start flowing back to improvements soon... I hope.

That was my understanding, too--at least for dinner. I hope it's a cut above the Liberty Tree Tavern. I ate there before it bacme a character-dining venue, and the food was OK, but nothing special.

So Tony's was a good surprise!


I'd certainly put it on the Mama Melroses level. Very similar menu and staff. Only bummer was we were seated in the 'Patio' area where it was sunny and a bit hotter due to an open door and window here and there.


I think this will be our new go to eating place at MK.

Hah, this is awesome! I really hope this becomes a Leap Year tradition (has Disney indicated that it would already?).




I agree! I think if I did't go to WCB, I probably would have gone to WDW or DL for a few days just for this. Glad everyone is having fun, and I'm really surprised that the crowds are not that bad. I'll keep my fingers crossed in hopes that tonight the crowds will stay the same!
