Guests’ experiences begin just inside the park gates at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Even before you hit the first of the shops on Main Street U.S.A., you come to the square—Town Square. And it has a lot to offer Guests who are just beginning their day at Magic Kingdom. You can meet Mickey Mouse and Tinkerbell at Town Square Theater. Tinkerbell greets Guests inside a room with a gorgeous Pixie Hollow set. Mickey Mouse is also available at Town Square for a memorable meet and greet. If you catch Mickey at this location before May 12, 2018 he may just talk to you! As of May 12, it is said Mickey will be going silent.
And should you have a craving for some great Italian food, look no further than Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. You remember Tony’s from a darling Disney film from 1955 about an uptown pooch and her vagabond beau. You guessed it—this is where Lady and the Tramp shared their first meal together while Tony himself sang “Bella Notte.” Here are 8 other things to love about this beautiful turn-of-the-century trattoria.
8. The front porch welcomes Guests.
Before you make it to the lobby at Tony’s, you’ll notice that the porch is long and wide. When the weather is good, you can ask for a table on the porch. If you’re lucky enough to get one, you won’t ever forget the experience. Eat lunch, relax in the breeze and take in all the beauty, hustle and bustle near the entrance to Magic Kingdom.
7. The lobby and waiting area are expansive.
You won’t mind waiting a few minutes for your table. The lobby spreads out over the size of a couple of rooms, and Disney’s Lady and the Tramp plays continually on the television near the front door.
6. The “Lady and the Tramp” feel is there.
The canine theme isn’t overdone. In fact, it’s just right. There are framed pictures of Lady and Tramp on the walls, and there’s even a gorgeous fountain in the center of the dining room that depicts Lady and Tramp looking longingly into each other’s eyes.

5. There’s something for everyone on the menu.
Whether you’re dining with Tony for lunch or dinner, you won’t be disappointed. The portions are generous, and the menu is moderately priced. Starters include a ricotta-based cheese dip, caprese salad and pasta fagioli—a meatless soup with beans and pasta. For your meal, enjoy tasty Italian comfort food like chicken parmigiana, fettuccini alfredo, shrimp scampi or Tony’s Spaghetti. There is also a kids’ menu with spaghetti and turkey meatballs, sautéed shrimp and grilled chicken.
4. Desserts are top notch.
Italian food can be heavy, so pace yourself to make sure you have room for dessert! Tony’s offers several choices, including cannoli, sugar-free raspberry sorbet, cheesecake, tiramisu, gelato and more. Can’t decide? Have each member of your family order a different dessert and sample them all!
3. Reservations are recommended, but walk-ins can get a table too.
It’s not impossible to get a table without a reservation, but if you’re hoping to enjoy Tony’s during the times when parades are “floating” by or during the nighttime spectacular, you’ll want to have a dining reservation made.
2. See the parades.
If you planned your trip and made dining reservations at Tony’s at certain times of the day, you might just see a parade while savoring your tiramisu. The “Festival of Fantasy” parade takes place around 3:00 p.m. every afternoon. You might also catch the “Move It, Shake It, Dance and Play It!” parade which usually takes place later in the afternoon. For a table at Tony’s during parades, be sure to make your reservation in advance via the My Disney Experience app or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.
1. Get autographs from Lady and Tramp.
Though Lady and the Tramp don’t spend all their time at Tony’s, they do stop in every once in a while. But since they are busy with their pups at home, when they do stop by, it’s just for a few minutes. If you’d like to get an autograph from them, let the host or hostess know, and have your autograph book available. They will hold on to your book, and as soon as Lady and Tramp come by, they’ll leave their pawprints in your book.
If you haven’t been to Tony’s, and if you love Italian food, you’ll be very impressed when you stop in for lunch or dinner. From the time you arrive until the moment you leave, you’ll enjoy the atmosphere, the décor and definitely the food!
