this review reflects my experience in October 2016
While we had planned a majority of our table service reservations prior to departure, we did leave some wiggle-room in our schedule for flexibility. We spent quite a bit of time at the Magic Kingdom on this visit, and while this isn't a park I really enjoy for dining, we found ourselves very hungry with a table service dining credit to use. We ended up at Tony's Town Square, located near the front of the park on Main Street USA. Themed from the Lady and the Tramp, the restaurant offers lots of windows (great for people watching) and a comfortable dining room.
I spoke with our server about my needs and the chef came out to speak with me about my options. I had bread, a salad, and a vegetable pasta dish. (The serving was enormous, and my husband warmed up the leftovers at the hotel for a meal later in the day.)
This was my least favorite dining experience at Walt Disney World, but that is partly because I don't get overly excited about pasta. I appreciate the effort of the chefs, but all of my dishes were heavily oiled - not something I am accustomed to as I normally skip the oil in my cooking. Had I known this ingredient would be so prominent in my dishes, I would have mentioned omitting it to the chef.
Review: 2/5 - Too much oil, and options were just not my cup of tea. I would pass this by on our next trip.
Upon entering the Magic Kingdom, we made our way down Main Street U.S.A. and through Liberty Square to Frontierland for our first meal at Walt Disney World - a quick-service lunch at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe. After a 4:00am alarm clock and a day of travel, we were ready to eat!
While the menu does not feature vegan or vegetarian items, options are available upon request, so ask the cast member what is currently available. The cast member taking our order provided me with a couple of menu items that would suit my needs, and I easily decided upon the roasted vegetable bowl. The meal consisted of brown rice, perfectly seasoned zucchini, and a serving of black beans. At the toppings bar, I loaded up the entree with lettuce, corn salsa, tomato salsa, and guacamole. Because we were using the Disney Dining plan, I also received Enjoy Life brand cookies for my dessert and indulged in a Coke, something I rarely drink at home.
Review: 5 stars/5 stars
The bowl was deliciously seasoned and very filling. I enjoyed selecting my toppings from the bar to personalize the meal. We enjoyed our food here so much, we almost returned, but I felt we needed to try some other quick service options around the resort so I could better assist clients.
