With so much to offer at the WDW resort, it is hard to know where to start. I could jump around from park to park and tell you all of my favorite rides, restaurants, shops, etc. but I am not going to. I am going to start with the Magic Kingdom – the heart and soul of the WDW resort. You know, the one with that iconic castle whose spires reach so high into the magnificent blue skies that Florida is so well known for. And what better way to start off a blog than with food – I am a huge foodie. You hungry? Good! Because Tony’s Town Square Restaurant is where we are going first. My family LOVES this place!
Located on Main Street, USA, this charming, casual dining restaurant offers Italian/American fare and is themed after the beloved Disney classic film, Lady and the Tramp. Adorned with a fountain of the famed characters and animated art from the movie on the walls, it is a sure crowd pleaser. This is no ordinary italian restaurant, it is a replica of the one where Lady and the Tramp had their first kiss over a plate of spaghetti and meats-a-ball . Are you singing Bella Notte in your head right now?
Offering indoor and outdoor dining, this restaurant serves lunch and dinner and counts as 1 meal on your Disney Dining plan (except the quick-service plan). I recommend the calamari, eggplant catasta, the flatbreads, shrimp scampi and of course, the spaghetti and meatballs on the lunch menu. On the dinner menu, I recommend the braised short ribs, chicken parmagiana and the mushroom ravioli. And, if you still have any room after their huge portions of food, the pistachio creme brûlée and the tiramisu are absolutely delish!
TIP – This restaurant is on the parade route. Make your outdoor reservations to coincide with the parade times and you will have the best seat in the whole park for the parade.
