Head on over to Liberty Square with us and sample all that makes Liberty Tree Tavern one of the most under-appreciated restaurants at Walt Disney World!
Liberty Tree Tavern is a one table-service credit restaurant on the Disney Dining Plan, and reservations for this restaurant are recommended. When we last ate at the Liberty Tree Tavern, it was way back on Sophie’s birthday, June 19, 2008, and it was a character dining location. Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Chip & Dale came to meet us, and it was a wonderful setting for a character meal.
Liberty Tree Tavern is no longer a character meal, but I’m betting that the food is as delicious as ever! Themed much like the land that is occupies, Liberty Square, the food is based on what you would find during the Colonial Days, when the United States was in it’s infancy. Here is the dinner menu, the kids menu, and the lunch menu for you to peruse at your leisure.
The dinner menu is served family style, with wonderful dishes, I remember how good it all was when we last ate there! The lunch menu is ordered off the menu, and features such dishes as pot roast, pasta, and other great dishes.
During our most recent visit, we invited along Sophie’s best friend Riley to join us. It was Sophie’s birthday, and the two of them had so much fun all day long at the Magic Kingdom! It was during this dining experience that I was able to get these pictures. I love the way that Minnie Mouse is all decked out in period clothing!

The are two reasons that we stopped going to Liberty Tree Tavern. The first is because they changed it out of being a Character dining location. We really enjoy our interaction with characters, and have always enjoyed being able to do that while eating, and not have to wait in line to see them. So when they stopped it being a character location, it kind of lost a little bit of it’s appeal to us. I know, that seems kind of a lame excuse, and it is, but it’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it! The second reason is because we actually ate at Liberty Tree Tavern two years in a row, both 2007 and 2008, and we wanted to try out other restaurants.
When we are a little older, I can see us coming back to Liberty Tree Tavern to have a meal there again. It is a wonderful atmosphere, with wonderful food and theming, and in 2007, when we had finished having lunch there, we just happened to have some Disney Magic on our side, and we walked out of the restaurant just in time to see one of the parades come right by! I was able to snag these and other photos from our viewing location!

I really enjoyed Liberty Tree Tavern the times that we ate there, and will give it a try again in the future. Although we haven’t been there for a number of years, I still have fond memories of the restaurant, including when Cindy and I ate there when we ate our way around Disney. It was then that Cindy claims that she “got the goods” on me and my “crush” on Minnie Mouse. I keep telling her we’re just friends, but she’s not buying it! Still, I think Cindy likes eating there also, so we’ll be back again, I think.
