(Text and images from Disney Travel Agents)
Nestled at the front of Main Street, U.S.A., Tony’s Town Square Restaurant is one of the hidden gems of Magic Kingdom® Park. Here, your family can relive the romance of Disney’s 1955 animated classic “Lady and the Tramp” in a charming turn-of-the-century trattoria where the famous love-struck pups shared their first plate of spaghetti and meatballs. With its whitewash balustrades, French doors, and expansive front porch, Tony’s classic Italian restaurant is the perfect spot for hopeless romantics and pasta-lovers alike!
Your family can start their meal off with one (or more!) dishes from the antipasti menu like the Caprese with vine-ripened tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and balsamic glaze. Or if they're looking for a light seafood appetizer, Tony’s is also known for their crispy calamari served with spicy house-made pickles and herb aïoli.
For the main course, your family will find a variety of Italian dishes such as pizza pies, meatballs, and a variety of pastas. Tony’s pizza pies come topped with a blend of cheeses as well as a choice of pepperoni, sausage, or garden vegetables and make for a perfect shareable entrée! The Roman-style steak is another great option with spinach and ricotta ravioli, heirloom tomatoes, wilted chard, hazelnut, and lemon Parmesan crema, or your Clients can chow down on the classic chicken parmigiana featuring lightly-breaded chicken breast topped with provolone and Tony’s marinara sauce served over freshly-made thin spaghetti and local vegetables.
Of course, they won’t want to miss out on the pasta! Your family can choose from options like chicken fettuccine alfredo or ravioli and house-made gnocchi primavera, both topped with their choice of grilled chicken breast or grilled jumbo shrimp. The scampi pasta is also a popular dish which features fresh linguine pasta made from scratch in-house and tossed with shrimp, classic butter sauce, Parmesan, and fresh vegetables.
And they can never go wrong with good ol’ spaghetti and meatballs! The freshly-made thin spaghetti can be topped with their choice or hand-rolled pork-beef meatballs or Italian sausage. If your family is looking for a plant-based option, they can even order mushroom meatballs!
For dessert, they can end their meal with a sweet treat that they won’t forget. Some options include a cannoli with ricotta cream-filled shells and powdered sugar or the Tiramisù featuring espresso-soaked sponge cake layered with mascarpone sweet cream and served with chocolate sauce. There’s even a yummy chocolate cupcake option for the kiddos!
Whether it’s for lunch or dinner, Tony’s Town Square Restaurant is a must-try spot for any of your family visiting Magic Kingdom Park.

When you think of a Walt Disney World quick service meal, does your mind automatically go to burgers, nuggets and mac and cheese?
I believe Disney has really raised the bar when it comes to their quick service options with Satu’li Canteen. This restaurant is in the new Animal Kingdom land of Pandora – The World of Avatar and offers healthy dishes with well-known ingredients.
Have you been “pixie dusted” while on a Disney vacation?
The term “pixie dusted” refers to those magical moments when a Disney Cast Member shows a guest a bit of extra attention, gives them a little extra something special or treats them to a unique experience.
We have been blessed with pixie dust several times on our many Disney adventures. Some of our favorites include opening Magic Kingdom Park, playing mini golf with Max on Disney Fantasy and opening the Disneyland Parks four times. Some of the smaller magical moments include the gift of an extra FastPass and little tips for new adventures.
On our most recent vacation to Walt Disney World, we decided to try all of the Kidcot Fun Stops in Epcot’s World Showcase. This experience is geared toward children, but anyone can participate. Each of the eleven countries has a Kidcot Fun Stop station.
