Dining Reviews: Magic Kingdom

Aloha Aisle (Adventureland)
This is a must every trip. I consider it the best use of a dining plan snack credit on all of Disney property! I have to have a Pineapple float! It's pineapple Dole whip (a custard-like frozen treat) with pineapple juice. YUM!

Pineapple Float

Auntie Gravity's (Tomorrowland)
My daughter and hubby love this place for smoothies!! I am not a huge smoothie fan, so I opt for a coke float! Another great use of a dining plan snack credit!

Be Our Guest (Fantasyland)
First off, I need to say how GORGEOUS the place is. Every detail is superb! Even the bridge leading into the restaurant really makes you feel like you are somewhere else and not in central Florida. The ballroom is amazing and the West Wing is creepy and scary (and a little too dark for eating in, in my opinion) For lunch I had the Croque Monsieur sandwich, which ended up just being a fancy name for a grilled ham and cheese. Hubby had the steak sandwich, which was decent he said, and the French Onion Soup, which was blah. Very disappointed in that. My son had the kids carved turkey sandwich, and that was nothing special. My daughter had the kids slow-cooked pork, which ended up having a gravy on it that just wasn't all that appetizing. Hubby and I both had the triple chocolate cupcake for dessert and it was good, albeit pretty small. On another day we had breakfast. The menu is a fixed price meal that includes a fountain beverage. There is a selection of sodas available as well as coffee, tea, and juice. My daughter and I shared Gaston's Feast. We were given a plate of pastries to share. Everything was very tasty and more than enough for the two of us to share. I also ordered a Grey Stuff cupcake, but sadly, it was just grey frosting.....not the real grey stuff.

Cosmic Rays (Tomorrowland)
Cosmic Ray’s is a great place for a meal. They have a wide variety of dishes to satisfy everyone. I had the Turkey Bacon Wrap. Very tasty and fresh! Just enough bacon to give it taste and even though I'm pretty sure it had ranch dressing on it already, I put on some extra. I ordered fries on the side..had to have 'em! And for dessert, I had the triple chocolate cake, which is one of my favorite desserts on all of Disney property!!! It's a must-have every trip! Hubby had a burger…he likes the toppings bar there, especially the mushrooms. He'll usually got a little tray of them and eat them as a side dish...shhhh, don't tell! My daughter got chicken nuggets..no complaints there. Sonny Eclipse is very fun. He sings!

Crystal Palace (Main Street USA)
This is a very pretty restaurant at the foot of Main Street. We've been there many times over the years, and we know what to expect food wise. Both breakfast and dinner buffets are good, though neither are anything spectacular. The character interaction is usually quick but the kids love the little parade!

A few breakfast offerings.

The Friar's Nook
Tony little place in Fantasyland near the Winnie the Pooh Gift shop. Not a large menu. I had the BBQ Chicken Mac n Cheese and holy cow! It's the traditional Stouffer's mac that they serve everywhere on Disney property, but they topped it with a generous portion of BBQ chicken chunks, some slaw, and panic breadcrumbs. It was very very good!!

Gaston's Tavern (Fantasyland)
This place is really really cool! The ambiance is really fun! We had to stop in for a snack and ordered LeFou's Brew, which is basically frozen apple juice with some foam on top to make the drink look like a beer. It was tasty though :) We opted for the regular one instead of the one in the souvenir mug. We could use a dining plan credit then :) We got a cinnamon roll, which was huge, and hubby and the kids all shared that. I got a chocolate croissant, which I did share, too. All was really good and we enjoyed our little snack break :)

Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen
Such a fun meal! The servers are Skippers, just like on the Jungle Cruise attraction. They tell jokes and mess with you and it's a lot of fun. The menu is quite adventurous though. You definitely need to be someone who likes to try new things in order to eat there. The appetizer bread was a little odd and it came with a honey dipping sauce that was also odd....it just wasn't to our liking. I had the Skip's Beefy Baked Pasta and it was pretty good. My travel companion had the "A Lot at Steak" salad and it had a very unique dressing, but it was good. The girls found nothing on the regular menu they wanted, so both got the kid's mac n cheese, which is the same stuff they serve everywhere on Disney property. My daughter did try my pasta though and liked it, so I gave her a scoop. For dessert I had the Kungaloosh, which is their signature dessert. It was a pretty dense chocolate cake. The girls got a mini chocolate lava cake with their meals. Overall, it was a good meal.

Liberty Tree Tavern (Liberty Square)
Very cute and quaint and the food is outstanding. The restaurant is very rustic, very homey. The meal is served family style for dinner and is traditional Thanksgiving-type fare: turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, veggies, plus mac n cheese, salad, and of course, dessert! Lunch is a la carte, with a different menu.

Main Street Confectionary
SOOOOO many yummy treats here...it was so hard to decide. But I went with a couple cake pops. I found a seat off Main Street at a little wrought iron table with an umbrella. A few minutes to rest my feet and relax with a treat!

Pecos Bill's Tall Tale Inn and Cafe (Frontierland)
The menu here has changed a few times over the years, but the current one is quite tasty and the portions are huge! Much of my burrito fell onto my plate so I ate it with a fork. Lots of fillings for the fajitas. Great toppings bar. The beef nachos are delish!

Steak fajitas and churro bites with chocolate sauce.

Pinocchio's Village Haus (Fantasyland)
The kids love this place because if you snag a seat near the windows, they can wave to the people riding it's a small world! I had the caprese flatbread and it was decent. Would have liked more basil. Hubby had the chicken parm sandwich and he liked it. Overall it was good.

The Plaza
This seriously is a hidden gem at the foot of Main Street. It's a small place and most people surely walk by and not even realize it's there. Very cute and Victorian. I was seated in the small room to the far side, surrounded by windows. The menu has tons of great things to choose from but I went with something unique...the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich....and I was not disappointed. It was so so good!

Sleepy Hollow
Small little stand with some unique offerings. It's located just over the bridge when you walk from the Hub into Liberty Square. I had the Set and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich. It was really good. My only complaint was that I wish the chicken was bigger, to fill the waffle better, and I would have liked more slaw, but otherwise, a tasty little lunch!
