Liberty Tree Tavern – Thanksgiving at the Magic Kingdom, every day!

Liberty Tree Tavern

 

Have you ever craved a big, family-style Thanksgiving meal when you are months away from the actual holiday?  Time for you to visit the Liberty Tree Tavern at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.  At lunch and dinner, you can order an amazing meal full of comfort foods… even if you are dining solo – as I was!

The decor of this restaurant makes me smile.  I love the details of the individually themed rooms and it has a comfortable, homey atmosphere.

One thing that has changed since my last visit to this restaurant – adult beverages!  Some of the Table Service restaurants in the Magic Kingdom now serve alcohol, a major change from the traditionally “dry” eateries in the park.

I have to admit, on a hot summer day this Sam Adams was very refreshing – and I liked how this brand of beer fit the restaurant’s colonial theme.

At lunch, diners can choose from an a la carte menu filled with yummy entrees or go with the “Patriot’s Platter,” an “all-you-care-to-eat” menu.  At dinner time, all guests must choose the Platter.

As I had arrived in time for an early dinner, I had to order the “Patriot’s Platter” and I was not disappointed!

My meal began with soft, fluffy rolls that reminded me of the Sally Lunn buns I had enjoyed in England.

Then I “ate my vegetables” by having some of this “Declaration Salad” – fresh greens tossed with a house-made sweet dressing.  A bit too sweet for me, so I only ate a bit.  Not a problem, I knew the best was yet to come!

The main event is a platter filled with roasted turkey breast, pot roast, pork roast, corn, herb stuffing and mashed potatoes.

This is a platter for ONE person!  And my lovely server graciously asked me a few times if I wanted seconds of any portion (or all!) of it.

This meal was sooooo good.  I know it seems like I enjoy most Disney food so maybe I am not a reliable critic, but I am actually pretty discerning when it comes to my meals.  The turkey was my favorite part of the platter.  Very flavorful and juicy.  I would have been happy with just the turkey and stuffing (I am a big stuffing/dressing person).

The pot roast is a reliable classic at the Liberty Tree Tavern – with a luscious gravy and tender meat and they also got the corn and potatoes just right.

The only disappointing bite was the pork roast, which was a bit fatty.

And before I forget, there was a side of macaroni and cheese as well!  You will not leave this place hungry and the food is very accessible and enjoyable for children as well.  I know this dinner would be a hit with my picky eaters.

I REALLY wanted seconds of the turkey, but I knew that I wanted to eat my dessert more.  One of my favorite desserts on Disney property – the Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake!

This is just a warm, chewy toffee cookie/cake topped with rich vanilla ice cream, drizzled with fudge and caramel sauce and sprinkled with more toffee pieces.   This beauty is neck-and-neck with ‘Ohana’s bread pudding in the race to be my favorite restaurant dessert.

I really enjoyed my dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern and I’m sure you will too!  Do you prefer a la carte lunch items at this restaurant or would you “go for it” and get the platter?
