Review Epcot’s Liberty Inn

Review Epcot’s Liberty Inn: A Publick Dining Room

Epcot has sights, sounds, and tastes from many exotic places, but sometimes it’s nice to experience the familiar. The American pavilion at Epcot does not have as many attractions and dining places as the other countries, but it is home to one of Disney’s classic animatronic shows, The American Adventure. Similar to the Hall of Presidents at Magic Kingdom.

This show uses animatronic characters such as Mark Twain and Ben Franklin to tell the story of America. It’s not as exciting as Mission Space perhaps, but it’s interesting and the lifelike quality of the animatronics is pretty cool to see. The American pavilion focuses heavily on colonial America, to show our countries heritage.

If you are hungry for some traditional American favorites, have a bite to eat right next door at the Liberty Inn, the American pavilion’s restaurant. The food here is not outstanding, but the classic American standbys are made well. Burgers, hot dogs, and chicken nuggets are the main dishes offered, but they have two alternative meals that I was happy to see on the menu: the Grilled Chicken Flatbread and the Black Bean Veggie Burger. The veggie burger looked good, with Monterey jack cheese, corn salsa, and chipotle mayonnaise, but I opted for the chicken flatbread.

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and taste of the chicken. It came with lettuce, tomato, bacon, and Monterey jack cheese. There is also a red pepper aioli sauce, which I got on the side. The chicken was a piece of all white-meant chicken breast and was moist and cooked to perfection. It was super tasty! I can be picky about sauces, so I got the aioli on the side, but I tried it on the flatbread and it was decent. It was not too spicy, but added enough flavor to be noticeable.

I think what I liked best about the flatbread however was the bread itself. It was a rustic type of brown bread that was amazingly good. I was happy to see that they did not use a typical white bread, and it was not stale or dry. It made the flatbread taste homemade and fresh, and I’m hoping it was healthier than white bread!

All the meals are served with a choice of carrots, grapes, or French fries. I got the French fries, but it was nice to know that I had a healthier option if I wanted. I was also happy to see that they had a condiment table with ketchup, mustard, honey mustard, and mayo dispensers. When eating burgers and fries, it’s nice to have access to as much ketchup as you want without getting the judgmental looks for taking a million ketchup packets.

The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere. It was very quiet when I went, with few people there, but it does get busy in the summer months. There are big glass paneled walls at the front and side of the restaurant with traditional colonial style, and brick on the opposite walls. There is also a nice little fountain in the center of the restaurant. It feels that they have made an effort to emphasize iconic American styles from colonial times.

They also had some fun additions like a kids play table, and jumbo checkers on a big wooden barrel. The whole restaurant made me feel discounted from the hustle and bustle of the park and gave me a chance to relax and refresh.

When leaving, we listened to the Spirit of America Fife & Drum Corps, a colonial-era band that plays marching music and makes military formations.  I  enjoyed their patriotic performance, with renditions of “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” “God Bless America” and more.

Overall, the Liberty Inn and the American pavilion are not spectacular, but they do not disappoint either. It’s a nice reminder of the importance of our own history and culture while learning so much about other countries of the world.

Food: Typical American fare , offering sandwiches, wraps, veggie burgers, salads, chicken nuggets, and other counter-service items.  I highly suggest the chicken flatbread!

Atmosphere: Quiet and comfortable. Nice place to take a break from a busy day for a family.

Service: Nice people! Many of the workers there took a moment to say hi to me and make sure I was happy. The food came quickly and was made fresh.

Tips: The outdoor seating area is a great place to eat and enjoy the various concerts that take place in the amphitheater directly across from the eatery — Flower Power Concerts, Eat to the Beat Concerts, and the Candlelight Processional are all held there.
