Liberty Tree Tavern - Magic Kingdom
I had seen this restaurant mentioned in several travel guides, so the last time we were at the Magic Kingdom we decided to give it a try. It is in Liberty Square, near one of the paths which take you to Cinderella’s Castle, and is nicely themed in an 18th century Colonial style with wooden floors and a large brick fireplace hung with large pots. To add to the ambience the staff wear colonial-style dress. The atmosphere was relaxing and we felt that we were being looked after very well. A lot of the dining experiences in Walt Disney World are self service, so it was excellent to be waited on for a change.
As it was lunch time we were able to walk in, but if you want to have dinner they recommend that you make a reservation. We were shown to our table and, being lunch time, were offered the lunch menu to peruse. There was certainly plenty to choose from on the separate child and adult’s menus. The adults all opted to start with a delicious bowl of New England Clam Chowder which was some of the best I have tasted outside New England. Then we all chose different things – New England Pot Roast, William Penne Pasta and an Old Glory Burger. The children both opted for the Junior Pilgrim’s feast. We all declared that our meals were delicious and, even though we were really quite full because of the generous portion sizes, we decided that we could probably manage a couple of desserts to share between five of us.
The dessert menu offered a difficult decision but in the end we had one Chocolate Liberation Lava Cake and one Caramel Apple Tart (which is a small version of a whole tart). It was a bit of a struggle, I have to admit, but they were so gorgeous and tasty that we managed to clear the plates between us!
If we had gone in for dinner, then we could have experienced the All You Can Eat character dining experience. That would have been fun, so maybe next time. During a character meal the characters visit every table for you to meet them, take pictures and get autographs.
The dinner menu is inspired by the early New England Thanksgiving meals and includes, amongst other things, Declaration Salad, roast turkey, glazed ham, steak, mashed potatoes, gravy and stuffing. The traditional dessert of fruit cobbler is there along with some vanilla ice cream (I’m not altogether sure that the pilgrims would have had that! ).
We would certainly go back to this restaurant again and can heartily recommend it.
