For All Your Disney Vacation Needs

Tony's Town Square


























One of the few restaurants at Walt Disney World that often gets a so-so or even downright bad
reviews is Tony's Town Square. I finally decided to check it out with my best friend to see if the reviews hold any truth.

Conveniently located inside the Magic Kingdom it's easy to get to and diminishes travel time by  not having to head outside the park. If you aren't sure where it's located, right after you walk through the train station, head into the Exposition hall on the right hand side.   Back when I was a cast member this was where you could have fun photos taken in front of a green screen as well as get all your camera supplies...you know, like film?


Back to the present you can now meet Mickey and Tinkerbell as well as hit up a gift shop. Once you enter the hall, Tony's is located immediately to the left. It was a little busy when we arrived but we didn't wait long before we were seated. No matter how many times I've been in this building, I didn't even know what Tony's looked like! I was pleasantly surprised!



The restaurant is simply adorable inside and just as I would have imagined it from the movie. It's very simple and not fancy but very nice.  It's a place I would love to bring my kids as it was very family friendly.

The menu was simple, Italian fare. Tony's shares the same menu for both lunch and dinner so if you are looking for a place for a mid-day break, Tony's could be the spot! We kept our lunch choices simple:


Spaghetti - with Meatballs and Marinara sauce



Chicken Parmigiana - Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast topped with Melted Mozzarella and Tony's Marinara sauce over Spaghetti


While I wouldn't call this the most amazing meal I've ever had it by no means was bad! It was quite good and a very decent meal.  It was also a very large portion and I couldn't finish it...especially if I was saving room for dessert!

 

Tiramisu - Kahlua espresso soaked lady fingers and whipped mascarpone topped with mocha cream



Chocolate Cake - layered with chocolate-hazelnut filling

Again, nothing to write home about but decent desserts. I think next time I go I would opt for a salad or soup prior to my meal and save dessert for a yummy treat at the Confectionary! 

Overall it was a decent meal. I wouldn't hesitate to go here again although it might not be my first choice especially with the nearby monorail resort options! The one big bonus this restaurant currently has is Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package. This includes your meal (lunch) and priority seating to the parade later in the afternoon. This is similar to the Fantasmic package over at Hollywood Studios and if you are on the dining plan there is no additional cost!
