Restaurant Review: Tony’s Restaurant
This sit down restaurant is located in Town Square at the entrance of the Magic Kingdom in the same building as Town Square Theatre. There has only been one vacation that I have not gone to this restaurant for supper or a late lunch so I’m going to admit that this review is likely biased. It’s a family favourite. As a young one I was a very picky eater and this restaurant had something I loved, spaghetti. I would order it plain, with butter and fresh parmesan cheese. It was one of the only good meals I ate on our trips to Walt Disney World.
This restaurant is based on Tony’s Restaurant from Lady and the Tramp. It’s an Italian restaurant that serves Lunch and Supper. With booths and tables inside, or on the covered porch, there is plenty of space for small and large parties. All around the restaurant are prints of Lady and the Tramp and the focal point is the Lady and the Tramp fountain at the centre of the restaurant. The menu is small, featuring pasta, a couple pizzas and a couple fish dishes. If you are a pasta fan this is a beautiful spot to come and enjoy a delicious and relaxing meal. Since pasta is an easy children’s choice, this is the ideal restaurant for families. For tiramisu lovers you will enjoy this featured dessert.
If you’re paying out of pocket, this is a reasonably priced restaurant. At $20-25 a plate, you’ll receive a very satisfying and tasty meal. If you’re on the dining plan, this is not the best value for your dollar. A buffet meal is the same meal credit but twice the dollar value. So check out Crystal Palace or the Diamond Horseshoe for said choices. Although at Tony’s you will receive a delectable meal in a calmer environment.
A great time to come to this restaurant is during the Festival of Fantasy Parade. Get a table out on the covered porch and enjoy an unencumbered view of the parade. This parade is daily at 3pm or 4pm, depending on the time of year, and starts at Frontierland so if you are seated at your table by 3:10 or 4:10 you’ll be able to see the whole parade travel through Town Square. The meet and greet with Mickey Mouse is also in this building, time your meet and greet with Mickey around a meal time and then enjoy lunch or supper at Tony’s. Across from Tony’s in Town Square is Harmony’s Barber Shop, a great place to have your child’s first haircut. Make an appointment for a haircut right before your supper reservation at Tony’s.
Although this restaurant is at the front of the park, the train station is steps away. So even if you have a fastpass reservation in Frontierland or Fantasyland before or after your meal, simply hop on the train for a relaxing ride to your next adventure.
I wouldn’t say this restaurant is a must do. Out of the 8 table-service restaurants in the Magic Kingdom Cinderella’s Royal Table, Be Our Guest and Crystal Palace would out rank Tony’s. But if none of those are available or you have a lover of Lady and the Tramp in the family then be sure to come and enjoy this Italian eatery.
Dining Plans: 1 table-service credit.
