Liberty Tree Tavern in Disney’s Magic Kingdom is a longtime favorite of Disney guests, often called the “Thanksgiving Restaurant”. Serving tasty American favorites like Roast turkey, roast pork, mashed potatoes, and herb stuffing. I am happy to report that two popular a la cart items that were removed late last year,  New England Pot Roast and the Fish & Chips are back on the lunch menu. (Dinner, as always, remains All-You-Care-to-Enjoy, served Family Style for all guests.)

And you better leave room for dessert at dinner because “Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake” is now on the dinner menu. If you haven’t yet tried this Liberty Tree Tavern lunch favorite because you usually only dine here at dinner now is your chance. Vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, caramel sauce, and vanilla ice cream is the perfect way to end a meal at this classic Magic Kingdom dining location.

All you can eat “Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake” anyone?

I know I’m ready!

Last week I headed over to the parks to partake more in California Adventures Food & Wine festival, but also to give the Red Rose Taverne a shot. I do love it when new things pop up in Disneyland, and I always have to try!

First things, yes the rumors are true, the line is crazy-town long. I popped over around 2:30 or 3pm hoping to have missed the lunch crowd, but alas that wasn’t the case. It was a Sunday, so maybe that had something to do with it. They were also very much out of the rose cups, but I didn’t expect there to be any at that time of day. To be honest, I didn’t see anyone in the parks with one either – so maybe they started the day without them.

The branding of the Red Rose Taverne is spot on, but I am not surprised, it’s Disney! They don’t do anything halfway. It’s mildly reminiscent of the Village Haus (which it was before), but all the décor is “Beauty and the Beast” – from the stained glass door (which I wasn’t able to see because the line had it propped open), to the art on the walls.

To the menu! I am one of those people who usually has to ask for an alternative menu, because I’m a vegetarian. But even before I set foot in the restaurant I checked out the menu online and was completely overjoyed that there was a good vegetarian option. Not just a typical “veggie patty” but actually vegetables. It’s the Enchanted Cauli-Flower Sandwich. A thick cut of cauliflower, battered green beans, lettuce and tomato – let me tell you it’s a mouth full. I highly recommend it, for any of you non-meat eaters out there. (Sorry I didn’t get pics of the food… We ate it).

The complete opposite of any vegetarian choice is Beast’s Burger. It’s a good-sized patty, with slow cooked meat atop that – then the caramelized onions, cheese and lettuce. I got full just looking at it. My boyfriend seemed to enjoy it, as it was gone before too long!

After the meal, there is an exit right into a Beauty and the Beast gift shop. Which is anymore, usual Disney style. It’s not very big, but it’s a nice place if you’re looking for anything B&tB specific.

The Red Rose Taverne is a pop-up, and as much as I enjoyed The Village Haus, I kinda hope this one sticks around for a while. I like the new options and am hoping to try the salads and the flatbreads. Since this location is the only eatery in Fantasyland, maybe they could find a place to fit Red Rose along with Village Haus – we could also use more breakfast places in Disneyland (hint hint!).

End result – go try Red Rose Taverne! For a grab and go, counter service restaurant it’s worth the visit!! Have you tried The Red Rose Taverne? What did you think?

Bonus pic!! While in California Adventure we spotted these rose cake pops at Trolley Treats. I thought this would be a good place to share them with you!

Disney Springs

Paddlefish, formerly Fulton’s Crab House, just reopened from a major refurbishment and now it’s Portobello’s turn. News coming out of Walt Disney World is that Portobello will be closing after dinner service on April 23rd, 2017 and will not reopen until Fall 2017.

When the updated restaurant reopens, it will feature an authentic Italian concept, including a family-style menu along with craft beers and wines. The new menu will be developed by James Beard Award-winner Chef, Tony Mantuano. Mantuano currently owns several dining establishments in Chicago, Illinois.

Portobello and Paddlefish are both owned by Levy Restaurants and are side-by-side in The Landing at Disney Springs.

Last week I shared some tips for bringing your toddler to Walt Disney World, and that got me to thinking about mealtime with toddlers. Dining with tiny ones can certainly be a challenge, especially when you’re at Walt Disney World where there are distractions everywhere you look. But fear not – as I am here with more tips – this time on how to tackle Disney World character meals with toddlers:

Let Them Help: Toddlers love doing “adult” things – so when you’re planning out your WDW Itinerary, and figuring out where you might want to eat (and planning for your ADR day of course – right?), let them help with the planning! I’m not talking about letting them dictate the whole trip – but giving them simple options like “would you like to eat with Mickey, or the Princesses?” would be a great way to let them feel like they are a part of the planning

Time It Right: It can be tricky to book those popular character meals – and while your instinct might be to take that 7pm time at Cinderella’s Royal Table because it’s the only time slot available – I urge you to reconsider! You should try to book your character meal as close to your toddler’s regular mealtime as you can – it will make life easier on everyone, trust me. And if that means you have to trade dinner for breakfast, or that you don’t get to go to your first choice restaurant – so be it. Routine is everything with little ones – and so is food – so best not to mess with either one

Pack Wisely: I talked about packing for the Disney Parks with toddlers in my post last week, and I mentioned bringing snacks and drinks along, but when it comes to getting them to sit through a meal, extra provisions must be brought. When we go out to eat with our little one, I try to bring along all the “comforts of home” – bib, kid utensils & plate, sippy cup, and plenty of wipes, too. I also like to basically bring a full meal’s worth of things I know he will eat in case he rejects everything at the restaurant (not likely but you never know!). Activity items are a must, too – crayons and paper, toy cars, his toy “laptop” – they can all buy you some peace and quiet, and who knows, you might actually get to eat, too!
Pro Tip: Download some shows/movies on your phone/tablet as a last resort – just in case your little one decides to enter full on tantrum mode before the waiter even brings over the drinks

Don’t Expect Perfection: Toddlers don’t have it easy – they can’t always express what they are feeling, and that can frustrate them greatly, and as with anything else – you just can’t expect them to behave perfectly and sit quietly through a whole character meal. They might cry when Mickey comes around and not want their picture taken, or they might throw 15 chicken nuggets on the floor – and that is all ok. Just because they are at Disney World doesn’t mean they are going to act like angels – and just as with any other place, I take the stance of “I expect this to go poorly and if it doesn’t, I will be glad” when it comes to toddler life

Here are my top picks for toddler character dining spots at WDW:

  • Crystal Palace
  • Chef Mickey’s
  • Tusker House

All of these are extremely kid friendly, and are also all buffets – which means you’re almost certain your toddler will find at least one thing he/she will eat!

The Disney Junior Play n Dine lunch was previously announced to be ending on May 14th, with Minnie’s Seasonal Dine taking the lunchtime slot instead. With this change, the Disney Junior Play n Dine will continue to remain in the breakfast time slot with characters joining the fun such as Jake, Sofia, Doc McStuffins, and Handy Manny.

However, we hear now that this change in lunchtime dining has been delayed until September 4th instead. The Disney Junior crew will now be remaining in their lunchtime slot until the Fall. In the meantime, you can still catch Minnie and her friends in their rotating seasonal outfits at Dinner indefinitely.

Also in September we will see a pricing increase for the lunch buffet with the change in characters. The change brings the new adult lunch price to $53.27, and the child price to $31.95.

Here is the current schedule:

  • January 7, 2017 – March 19, 2017
    Minnie’s Silver Screen Dine
    Pay homage to Hollywood blockbusters at a banquet honoring the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown’s finest!
  • March 20, 2017 – June 4, 2017
    Minnie’s Springtime Dine
    Shake off winter’s chill with a divine dinner party that marks the bright and beautiful delights of spring!
  • June 5, 2017 – September 3, 2017
    Minnie’s Summertime Dine
    Head to Hollywood & Vine for a beach-inspired bash celebrating the sizzle of summer!
  • September 4, 2017 – November 5, 2017
    Minnie’s Halloween Dine
    Make way for Minnie’s favorite haunt as all her pals gather for a frightfully festive Halloween feast!

What do you think of the Disney Junior Play n Dine lunch being extended?

My Disney Experience

For those that have booked a breakfast or lunch reservation at Magic Kingdom’s much-loved Be Our Guest restaurant, you already know that this restaurant is unique in that guests have the ability to order their food in advance using the My Disney Experience app and have it delivered to your table upon your arrival.

According to a recent post by Disney Parks Blog, it would seem that Walt Disney World Resort is developing this technology further and making plans to unveil online ordering at additional quick service restaurants across the resort.  The Satu’li Canteen, an all new Quick Service Restaurant that will open as part of the Pandora:The World of Avatar expansion at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park this May will feature “Mobile Order”  This will allow visitors to select their meals in advance and (unlike the Be Our Guest option) even pre-pay using the My Disney Experience app.

This means that guests can skip the long lines when they arrive at the restaurant.  Instead visitors will press the “I’m here” button on the app when they are in the vicinity which will notify the kitchen to get the meal ready. Guests will then be alerted through the app when their food is ready and where they can go to pick it up.

Satu’li will be the first to employ this new technology but Disney hopes to release it at additional Walt Disney World eateries by the year’s end.

Satu’li Canteen

Pandora: The World of Avatar opens on May 27th and with it a plethora of new eatries in the Animal Kingdom! One of those locations is the all new Satu’li Canteen. Disney has shared with us a first look at the menu for Satu’li Canteen…

Guests can enjoy creative, flavorful dishes based on the healthful bounty of Pandora, with wholesome grains, fresh vegetables and hearty proteins at Satu’li Canteen, where an on-stage grill is a prominent feature in the colorful dining room.

The Satu’li Canteen was once the main mess hall of the Resources Development Administration (RDA) base located in the Valley of Mo’ara. Now the canteen is owned and operated by Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE) tour company and has been redesigned into a beautiful museum-like dining room.

The interior has been transformed with colorful Na’vi items filling the walls and hanging from the ceiling — hand-woven tapestries, natural Pandoran elements and even cooking tools decorate the restaurant.

Look for familiar dishes with a twist in the fast-casual restaurant, with bowls that allow diners to customize their lunch or dinner. Diners start with a base of quinoa and vegetable salad; red and sweet potato hash; mixed whole-grain and rice or romaine and kale salad. Next is either with wood-grilled chicken, slow-roasted beef, sustainable fish or chili-spiced fried tofu. And the bowl is finished with charred onion chimichurri, black bean vinaigrette or creamy herb dressing.

The menu also offers steamed “pods” – bao buns with either cheeseburger or vegetable curry and served with root vegetable chips and crunchy vegetable slaw.

For little ones, there’s an option of grilled chicken or beef, fish or tofu with greens or rice; a hot dog wrapped in Parker House dough; cheese quesadilla, or a steamed “pod” (cheeseburger bao bun).

Great news, Satu’li Canteen Restaurant will also be the first to offer Mobile Order, a new convenient option to order and pay for meals on-the-go within the My Disney Experience app, allowing guests to bypass the queue to order when they arrive at the restaurant. Using the app, guests can select menu items, customize their order and pre-pay for their meal. When they arrive at the restaurant they will tap an “I’m here” button in the app, which will notify the kitchen to prepare the meal. When ready, guests will be alerted through the app to pick up their meal at a designated window. Additional fast-casual and quick-service restaurants will begin to offer Mobile Order later this year.

Reminds me a little bit of Jungle Skipper Canteen Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom…

Disney Dining Plan is accepted at Satu’li Canteen but, at this time, Mobile Order only accepts credit cards.

Disney Springs Town Center has seen a lot of growth since opening in May 2016.  New shops and restaurants continue to make their debut as we venture into 2017.  The Polite Pig, scheduled to open Spring 2017, now has its restaurant signs mounted on the outside of the building.

The Polite Pig will feature wood-fired menu items and a specialty beverage concept where all drinks are served on tap to include wine, cocktails, and beer.  The Polite Pig is in the Town Center Neighborhood of Disney Springs, across from Uniqlo, and at the entrance to the Lime Garage.  We are looking forward to this new restaurant venue.  Stay tuned to the Chip and Co. page for updated information as it becomes available.
