Now a can't miss spot for us

We always found it tough to get a good lunch in the Magic Kingdom. Just learned it's because we never tried The Plaza. Simple menu, well prepared. Chef Ken took EXCELLENT care of my wife's allergy needs, and treated us like family. I'm not kidding... like family! The man just has a gift for... read more

I loved this restaurant last year when we went, but this year the food was pretty meh. I still love the decor and feel of the restaurant, but my husband had a weak turkey sandwich, my tuna sandwich was ok, and my son's hamburger was worse than the ones available at the quick service places. I probably won't go back... More

This is a small restaurant and you need reservations during peak times. Without reservations it would have been 1.5 to 2 hours wait. The service type is between cafeteria and one of the country-themed restaurants in Epcot. The menu is small but has good food. Salad, hamburger, cheesesteak, meatloaf, chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, etc.. and is a step above the... More

After years of visiting Walt Disney World we finally decided to make a reservation to have dinner at The Plaza Restaurant in Magic Kingdom. We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation time as suggested and were given a buzzer and told they would call us when ready. And curiously we were asked which resort we were staying at. Does...

Our dinner here was a nice time-out before the parade and fireworks. It's on the casual side, but offers more substantial dishes than the quick serve restaurants. It's close to comfort food. My husband really enjoyed the meat loaf meal. My turkey sandwich with chips was fresh and very good. My son ordered the grilled cheese, but he's very picky... More

Had lunch reservations for noon at The Plaza. Located on Main Street with a great view of the action. We requested a view of the Castle and were happy to have our request honored. We also had a great view of the parade. The food was excellent. I ordered the club sandwich and it was so good! The chips are... More

This is the second time we've gone, and both times I've been underwhelmed with the food. Also, service was slow both times and they gave away our table because we were 5 minutes late (literally, this is not minimizing a later arrival) for our reservation. The ice cream is good, but the sandwiches less so. I recommend sticking with the... More

We had always enjoyed eating here but the past 2 trips this restaurant has gone down hill. Waitress was not on the ball, brought wrong food to us and was more concerned about the table next to us & since we were only 2 people guess she was trying to over do herself on the larger group for a bigger...

We visited the Magic Kingdom in early December, 2014, and had made 2pm lunch reservations at The Plaza. What a cute little restaurant! We've been to the MK many times before, but I had never thought of dining here (you need a reservation, the restaurant is fairly small and people were turned away while we were there). The food was... More
