Welcome to the first of My Dreams of Disney‘s Dining Reviews! I hope that you will find these entertaining, enlightening, and useful as you think about the different dining options you have at Walt Disney World!
|Tramp and Lady Fountain in Tony‘s Town Square Restaurant|
For my first review, I’m taking you back in time to our first trip to Disney World where we stayed on property — 2007. In that year, we took our trip to Disney World in late August, and we stayed at Coronado Springs that year. For this year we were lucky enough to qualify for free dining, so we planned all of our dining locations ahead of time.
Being our first on-property vacation, I mistakenly thought that we would be able to drive down, get to our room, and make our dinner reservation in time. I was wrong! Our reservation was for 6:30 PM or something like that, but we were late getting into Coronado Springs, so when we did get there, I explained the situation to the concierge, and they called the restaurant and were able to change our reservation! As you can see from the picture above, it was about an 8PM dinner reservation, and the restaurant wasn’t that crowded.
Tony’s Town Square Restaurant is, as the name implies, located in the Town Square part of Main Street U.S.A., on the right side as you enter the Magic Kingdom. Taken from the movie Lady and the Tramp, Tony’s is an Italian restaurant, specializing in pastas, pizza, salads, and other Italian specialties.
While Tony’s isn’t the best restaurant on property, it does hold a sentimental value to it because it was our first reservation when staying on property. As such, while the food is good, but not spectacular, it does have a place in my heart. Sophie loves Lady and the Tramp, and there are times when she watches the movie to this day. For her, eating at Tony’s is like transporting into the movie.
