My party of 11 spent $411 on Disney World's year-round Thanksgiving feast, and the all-you-can-eat spot was worth every penny
The all-you-can-eat spread at Liberty Tree Tavern is one of my family's favorites at Magic Kingdom.
The restaurant is themed to look like a colonial village inn, with decor and antique furniture.
It's often one of the easiest reservations to land at Disney World, and it's a great meal.
Liberty Tree Tavern celebrates a colonial style.
Located in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom, the restaurant feels like a colonial village inn one might stop at after a long journey.
It's a large space with multiple rooms decorated with early-American furniture and memorabilia.
The servers and staff at the restaurant also wear traditional colonial garb.
Each room is themed after an early-American historical figure.
The different figures represented include Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson.
Even with a group of 11, my family easily got a reservation.
As a travel planner at Marvelous Mouse Travels, helping clients obtain sought-after dining reservations is one of my most important jobs.
When Be Our Guest and Cinderella's Royal Table are difficult to get, Liberty Tree Tavern is a great alternative at Magic Kingdom.
It's also one of the few restaurants at Disney World that offer reservations for larger parties.
The tavern serves the Patriot's Platter, which is essentially a Thanksgiving feast.
The tavern offers a family-style meal for both lunch and dinner that costs $40 for adults and $21 for children.
The main all-you-can-eat Patriot's Platter is a smorgasbord of comfort food. It's like a Thanksgiving feast diners can enjoy any day of the year.
Our meal started with a seasonal salad and fluffy rolls with butter.
The simple green salad was fresh and tasty.
The rolls weren't spectacular, but they were good with butter and paired nicely with the salad.
The main course was comfort food at its best.
During our visit, the main-course platter included roasted turkey breast served with gravy, carved beef, smoked pork loin, mashed potatoes, green beans, mac and cheese, and herb stuffing.
Plant-based options such as Impossible meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and vegetables can be ordered on request.
Some nonalcoholic drinks were included in the cost of our meal.
All meals come with a standard drink offering, such as soda, milk, coffee, or hot tea.
Specialty cocktails, beer, wine, and cider could all be purchased for an extra cost.
Everyone in my party raved about the food.
The turkey was moist and delicious, and the pork and beef were both tender and well-cooked.
The mashed potatoes and green beans, clearly filled with butter, were divine. The stuffing was also a perfect complement to the meal.
The mac and cheese was great for any kids or picky eaters at the table.
Everyone had seconds or thirds and said it was their favorite meal of the trip.
The dessert was equally delicious.
To finish off the meal, we were served an ooey gooey toffee cake topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.
Most of us were too stuffed to try it, but those who did said it was warm and delicious.
Liberty Tree Tavern has some of the best food at Magic Kingdom.
My party of 11 ended up spending $411, before tax and tip.
Although other restaurants at Disney World may have more flair, Liberty Tree Tavern consistently offers delicious food at a fairly good value. Plus, the colonial theme is fun, especially if you enjoy American history.
Pro tip: If you can't get a reservation and Liberty Tree for some reason, the Diamond Horseshoe next door serves the same food.
