Full Disclosure: I paid for this meal with my own money and I was in no way reimbursed for this blog post. The opinions are completely my own.
Our first stop for dinner at WDW was Tony’s Town Square at the Magic Kingdom. This restaurant came as a suggestion from my friend (and Disney expert) Mandy. It is an Italian restaurant modeled after the restaurant featured in the move The Lady and The Tramp.
Everything on the menu is very classic Italian. All of the entrees include bread with olive oil.
I had the shrimp scampi.
The Husband had Tony’s lasagna.
Overall the food was good. Huge portions though. The shrimp in my pasta was huge and tasty, and the dish was well done. The Husband reports that the lasagna was good as well, very meaty – apparently as meaty lasagna should be.
The waiter that we had was just OK, which is kind of surprising for Disney. He seemed like he had a rough day or something. I realized this when he was the one person that day who didn’t acknowledge that it was my birthday. When one person out of the past 50 that you saw doesn’t see the large pin that you are wearing that says its your birthday, there must be something wrong. Its ok though, because it was made up for with a couple of other meals later in the week. Because when you are celebrating at WDW, your birthday lasts a whole week
I’m gonna guess that this guy was just a fluke because the rest of the waitstaff and hostess were friendly and a lot more Disney – like.
Taste: A, good classic Italian food. Also, I’m a sucker for warm bread.
Cost: B, as we quickly learned the food at Disney is not cheap. However, with that in mind the meal was not too expensive. The total for our meals (plus two soft drinks) was about $43 plus tip.
Would I go there again? Probably. If you are looking for a solid Italian restaurant at the Magic Kingdom, this is definitely the place to go!
