Guests who enjoy a day in the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort can choose between several delicious ad uniquely themed table service restaurants, including a popular choice in the heart of Liberty Square. The Liberty Tree Tavern is open for lunch and dinner each day and welcomes Guests to enjoy a hearty meal inspired by an American holiday in a rustic and patriotic setting.
The exterior of Liberty Tree Tavern was specifically designed to fit in with the architectural theming found throughout both Frontierland and Liberty Square that showcases the progress and evolving style through time from the 1700s through the 1800s. With a bright white exterior, stately columns, vibrant blue door, and classic architectural elements like paned windows, shutters, and molding, the exterior of the restaurant absolutely evoke the charm of a colonial-style inn from New England.
Once inside Liberty Tree Tavern, the aesthetic becomes more rustic with a check-in area featuring a massive vaulted ceiling, large brick fireplace, dark wooden beams and accents, hanging chandeliers adorned by gently flickering candles, and tons of props. Guests immediately feel a sense of history and patriotism from just this room alone and can check out various traditional items all around, including artwork and cooking tools near the fireplace.
After checking in, Guests are seated in one of six rooms, each of which pays homage to and celebrates the life of an important figure in United States history. The individuals celebrated are Paul Revere, Thomas Jefferson, Betsy Ross, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and John Paul Jones. Guests can learn more about their lives through subtle theming and dedicated props and artwork while enjoying their meals.
While soaking in the atmosphere and details, Guests will notice that George Washington’s room has portraits of the United States President and his wife, as well as his home in Mount Vernon. Thomas Jefferson’s room has references to Monticello, and nautical details are found throughout John Paul Jones’ room. References to the famous kite and key can be found in Benjamin Franklin’s room. Other wonderful details include a replica of Betsy Ross’ iconic flag and the historical lanterns that made Paul Revere a staple in United States history.
After settling into the charming and historical colonial atmosphere at Liberty Tree Tavern, Guests can check out the menu, which is identical for lunch and dinner and features a family-style assortment of traditional American dishes inspired by Thanksgiving.
Before digging into the food, Guests should be sure to check out the beverage menu, as the table service Liberty Tree Tavern is one of the few locations in the Magic Kingdom where Guests can enjoy an alcoholic beverage. In addition to soft drinks, tea, and coffee, Guests can enjoy beer, wine, hard cider, and specialty cocktails with patriotic names like the Liberty Sangria and Spirit of ’76 Cider Shandy.
Guests who are looking for specialty beverages that are non-alcoholic can also choose between two perfectly named options with great flavor. The Tavern Punch combines iconic frozen DOLE Whip from nearby Adventureland with lemon and Sprite, and the I Cannot Tell a Lie is a shake blend of vanilla and cherry with a brown sugar-graham cracker rim.
After ordering up beverages, Guests can truly dig into the hearty and filling family-style feast that is served for lunch and dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern, beginning with the Declaration Salad, which features a bed of tossed mixed greens topped with just the right amount of house-made dressing. This is definitely a light touch to the otherwise heavy meal that is to come!
The main course offered at Liberty Tree Tavern is the aptly named Patriot’s Platter, which features a trio of indulgent and flavorful proteins that Guests can share and also request more of. The Roast Turkey Breast is moist and juicy, the Pennsylvania Pot Roast is pure comfort in every bite, and the Oven-roasted Pork is packed with flavor.
In addition to the protein options, the Patriot’s Platter also comes with creamy mashed potatoes, a medley of seasonal vegetables, herb stuffing (because what is a true Thanksgiving feast without stuffing?), and house-made macaroni and cheese. When combined, all the elements of the Patriot’s Platter absolutely make Guests feel as though they have traveled back to colonial times to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal together.
The absolute best part of any meal at Liberty Tree Tavern is the desert which has become somewhat of an iconic food at the Walt Disney World Resort over the years. The Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake is the stuff that dreams are made of, with a sticky and sweet vanilla toffee cake topped with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream.
Guests should also note that those with dietary restrictions also have a separate allergy-friendly menu offered for both lunch and dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern as well as a plant-based Tavern Keeper’s Feast with the Declaration Salad, Impossible Meatloaf, and Johnny Appleseed’s Warm Apple Cake.
Liberty Tree Tavern is a completely unique location that perfectly combines a richly historical theme and charming interior with comforting food that will satisfy and energize Guests for a day in the Magic Kingdom. Whether lunch or dinner, Guests should definitely plan on enjoying a hearty Thanksgiving feast at Liberty Tree Tavern at the Walt Disney World Resort!
