“Beautiful location but nothing to write home about.”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

The restaurant is gorgeous, with it victorian architecture, and the service and food were good; just nothing to make me want to go back again. Menu is 95% sandwiches served on plastic plates. Fast food fair that you need a reservation for. Being a WDW restaruant, I guess my expections were much higher.

“Great place for a sit down lunch at MK”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We had an early reservation for lunch at the Plaza Restaurant, and it was great for a well-priced sit down meal with lots of options. Everyone in our party had sandwiches or burgers and they were all great. It was my birthday, so my MIL arranged to have a cake brought out, with singing and all. It was really nice! The service was great, and I would definitely return.

“Good sandwiches, fast service”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

It was a cold day at Disney and I was thrilled I took the time to make a lunch reservation! In side the Plaza they had a nice array of dishes, include light sandwiches and children's food that looked somewhat healthy. It is located near the front of the park, near the castle so it was easy for us to find.

While we were in there one of the characters came in who was running for "Mayor of Tune Town" she didn't stay long, but it was fun to watch her. Of course the only negative is the price! But it was not as expensive as other sit-down restaurants.

“Take time out in the Magic Kingdom”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We ate here at 12.30pm on Christmas day and expected the staff to be feeling the pressure of feeding so many customers whilst turning away the dozens that hadn't made reservations. On the contrary however, the staff were all unfailingly pleasant, polite and full of jokes and team spirit from the lovely ladies on the podium outside through to the chefs and wait staff.

We were sat in the Conservatory at a table for two and although every other table was busy, we didn't feel cramped or that anyone was overlooking us. Wait staff were pleasant and patient and explained all the items and although we felt that this wasn't the case at all, apologised for the delay and gave us a couple of Fastpass tickets good for any ride in the park at whatever time we chose to use them. Had a great view of the Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It party / parade as we waited for the food and really enjoyed the bright holiday atmosphere.Drink refills were prompt and service attentive throughout.

We went for the meatloaf meal and the cheesesteak and split them between us and couldn't finish as portions are generous. Daughter really enjoyed the mashed potatoes that came with the meatloaf and the brocolli slaw that came with the cheesesteak was fresh and zingy. We were really full but split a fudge sundae between us because it was Christmas. =P

Thoroughly enjoyable meal helped along by friendly and interested staff for whom nothing was too much trouble, some of the waitresses were older ladies and it really felt like they enjoyed talking to the kids they were serving, I think I got as much fun out of it as they did. All in all a very pleasant and chilled lunch on a day when the Park was heaving full. Looking forward to going again.

“Nice break from the chaos”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Great place to step away from the magic kingdom's lines and chaos. Location is right off Main Street and from most seats you can see the castle or a parade going by in full view. Some lighter items such as salads and sandwiches vs. the typical hamburger and hot dog venues. Tip: Get a reservation early to help with the experience.
