The founding fathers of our country would have a favorite Walt Disney World dining spot, if they could travel time. They’d always pick Liberty Tree Tavern at Walt Disney World! It’s a Magic Kingdom table service restaurant (located in Liberty Square) where you can step back in time and dine on an Americana feast – which of course – is a daily Thanksgiving dinner menu! Read my Disney dining review to see if it’s worth your time and money.
To be honest, we’ve been dining at Liberty Tree Tavern for years. It’s always been a family favorite and one of our favorite Magic Kingdom spots. It’s fairly easy to score reservations at the restaurant and it’s on the parade route. So lunch around 1pm, means you’ll be walking out, just in time for the 3pm parade.
Overall, in my opinion, Magic Kingdom park is lackluster for dining options. Cinderella’s Royal Table is an amazing experience with mediocre food.
Liberty Tree Tavern – Disney World Dining Review
Over the years, the Liberty Tree Tavern menu hasn’t changed too much. That’s because fans keep coming back for the same dishes that Liberty Tree Tavern is known for. They’ve got some menu items that are probably permanent because fans enjoy it so much.
Magic Kingdom was considered Walt Disney World’s only dry park, with no alcohol, for many years. Now, several of the table service restaurants serve beer and wine. Liberty Tree has a decent wine and beer menu for guests – with no craft cocktail choices.
How To Secure Reservations or Walk Up
Use your My Disney Experience app to make reservations prior to your vacation. Since 2020, dining reservations have been available for guests 60 days prior to arrival (subject to change). Liberty Tree Tavern accepts the Disney Dining Plan and counts as 1 table service credit.
If you don’t have a reservation for the restaurant, you can check your app while walking around the park. However, I still think guests have luck walking up to the hostess desk, at the park. Some people debate that and only use the app, but I’ve found that it can sometimes vary. Liberty Tree Tavern DOES take walk-up guests.
Of course, since the restaurant is located inside of Magic Kingdom, it’s completely casual. It’s a great place to rest and relax when you’re tired and overheated. There are several dining rooms in the restaurant and each dining room is themed around one of America’s founding fathers.
Cast Members will let you know, upon seating, which dining room you’re sitting in and a little trivia about the founding father. I don’t want to spoil the fun, but the Cast Members also play a little role, when seating guests, to add to the theming.
Bathrooms are located inside the restaurant. This is important to know because sometimes park restaurants require a bit of walking to use the nearest restroom. That’s not the case at Liberty Tree.
Lunch vs. Dinner At Liberty Tree Tavern
Both the lunch and dinner menus have great choices on them. The lunch menu has more variety, with pastas and salads It’s great, but their dinner menu is what they’re most famous for. Guests can enjoy 365 days of Thanksgiving feasts at Liberty Tree Tavern.
The dinner menu is served family-style, with all-you-can-enjoy portions. Start out with a mixed greens salad and dinner rolls, before enjoying the Patriot’s Platter. Here’s what the Patriot’s Platter includes:
- Roasted Turkey Breast
- Pot Roast
- Oven-Roasted Pork With Mashed Potatoes
- Seasonal Vegetables
- Herb Stuffing
- House-Made Macaroni and Cheese
For dessert, they serve one of the most famous sweet treats on property – the Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake! It’s reason enough to make a reservation at the restaurant, because it’s so dang good. It’s soft and warm cookie with toffee and chocolate pieces, that’s topped with vanilla ice cream.
Specialty Menus At Liberty Tree Tavern
It’s no secret that Walt Disney World is an amazing destination for people with food allergies. Recently, Disney Parks have added more plant-based menu items too. Liberty Tree offers the same style of American Thanksgiving cuisine for guests with food allergies or plant-based needs.
Impossible™ Meatloaf and Warm Apple Cake are the different plant-based menu options. Honestly – the apple cake looks delicious and rivals the Oooey Gooey Cake. I don’t think you’ll miss out on anything!
What Will My Kids Eat At Liberty Tree Tavern?
Now that you know what they serve, let’s break down if your kids will actually eat. If you’ve got picky eaters, like my kids, you know how annoying it is to make reservations and they don’t eat anything at all. I’ve got some great news though – they did eat at Liberty Tree.
After washing down several rolls, my kids mostly enjoyed the macaroni and cheese. I’d love to tel you that they enjoyed the vegetables too, but they weren’t as popular. One of my kids did help out with enjoying the turkey too! Of course, they loved the dessert as well.
Overall, I find the restaurant is pretty kid-friendly. They have several themed non-alcoholic beverages on the menu that come with light up souvenir toys too.
Cost Of Dining At Liberty Tree Tavern
Post Covid and re-opening, the restaurant has only been offering the family-style dinner that’s all-you-can-enjoy. It’s subject to change, and they might go back to a different lunch menu than dinner, at any time. Currently, since lunch and dinner are the same offerings, the prices reflect the same amount too.
$39 per adult, plus tax and gratuity
$21 per child, plus tax and gratuity
The prices are the same no matter what type of menu you pick from, but do not include the cost of drinks. Overall, I think the price of dining is worth it! You’re getting so much food – almost too much for a hot park day. It’s always a Magic Kingdom restaurant pick that we’ll keep coming back to.
