Wondering how Plaza Restaurant stacks up against the other Magic Kingdom Table Service Restaurants? Check out The Best Magic Kingdom Sit Down Restaurants for a comparison of the five Magic Kingdom restaurants in a variety of categories including Most Unique Menu, Best Value on the Disney Dining Plan, Best Value Out of Pocket, Best Atmosphere, Best Food, and Best Overall Restaurant.
Food Type: American
Dining Plan: 1 Table Service
Cost: Entrées are $11-$12. Same menu all day.
Setting: The Plaza is similar to Crystal Palace in its Victorian theme. It’s modeled after a turn of the century ice cream parlor with accented mirrors, chandeliers, and iron wrought chairs. It’s fairly unremarkable, but considering the lower than average prices we won’t complain.
Advantages: One of the cheapest sit-down restaurants for dinner. Portions are large and quality is high. If you like salads, burgers, or sandwiches then you’ll enjoy this simple menu. Ice cream sundaes and milkshakes are both delicious. Convenient location on Main Street. More casual than other restaurants.
Disadvantages: Small and congested seating area. Not the quickest service, which may or may not be a good thing. No indoor restroom. Not the best “value” on the Dining Plan.
Value: Excellent, out of pocket. This is the least expensive sit-down restaurant at Disney World for dinner, with all entrées $13 or less. Portions are large and the food is well prepared. This doesn’t make much sense on the Dining Plan since the most expensive meal you could put together would be around $22. If you’re on the Dining Plan you may want to pay out of pocket and save the credits for a Signature meal.
Reputation: The Plaza Restaurant is often overlooked by guests visiting Disney because it’s near the entrance and doesn’t feel particularly “Disney.” However, it’s a great place to stop for lunch or dinner, especially if you’re tired of paying $30 for entrées at some of the more expensive restaurants. The sandwiches and burgers are all better than what you would find at counter service and the setting and service are better as well. Plus, the milkshakes and ice cream are not to be missed. I would recommend the Plaza to anyone looking for a more relaxed meal than counter service with cheaper prices than most table service restaurants.
Overall Rank on The Best Magic Kingdom Sit Down Restaurants: 2nd out of 5
