Tucked away in Liberty Square at Walt Disney World rests the Liberty Tree Tavern. This rustic looking restaurant is a perfect patriotic choice for dining in the Magic Kingdom as it features six different dedicated dining areas, each honoring a different historical personality. Amid each of the fine wood panels and brick fire places of these themed rooms are various historical items associated with Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Paul Jones, Paul Revere, Betsy Ross and George Washington. Guests are encouraged to explore and examine each room for these historic treasures.
No need to wait for the third Thursday in November, as it’s Thanksgiving every day here. American heritage aside, the best part about Liberty Tree Tavern is the bountiful buffet of the Patriot’s Platter. This “all you care to eat” is the perfect dinner delight this time of year with its Thanksgiving-like selection of roasted turkey breast, tavern ham and traditional sides (Mashed Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables, Herb Stuffing, and House-made Mac and Cheese). The meal also includes sliced prime rib and a beverage. The meal is served family style, in that all of the food is brought to your table. This fabulous feast finishes with “Johnny Appleseed bread pudding or an Ooey Gooey toffee cake with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream.” For colonists not wanting dig into the Patriot Platter, other menu options like pasta with grilled chicken or an Angus chuck cheeseburger are also available – but only for the lunchtime seating from 11:00 am until 2:55 pm (desserts and appetizers as well).
Dinner, which is limited to the $34.99 Patriot Platter, is served from 3:15 pm to 7:00 pm. Check out the full menu here.
To take this patriotic path back in time, park admission is required and reservations are strongly recommended.
