9/4/15 Update: Menu updated.
Location: In Liberty Square across from the Liberty Square Riverboat entrance.
Food Type: Snacks, Hot Dogs, Frozen Slushes, Fruit, Corn on the Cob, Baked Potatoes.
Dining Plan: Most items count as snacks, but it doesn’t accept quick service credits for meals.
This is home to many of the same allergy-friendly snacks you’d find at the Gardens Kiosk at Animal Kingdom, in addition to some underrated snacks and a quick way to pick up a sandwich when lines are long elsewhere.
The Baked Sweet Potato is only offered when it’s “in season.”
Unique Items: Baked Sweet Potato, Baked Potato, Hot Sandwiches.
- Lines are usually short or nonexistent, making it easy to pick up a quick beverage or snack.
- Since Disney added more tables and took away the chairs with backs, seating is more plentiful, but also more uncomfortable.
- The Baked Potato is a hearty, relatively inexpensive snack that’s on the healthy side.
- Seating is uncomfortable and uncovered.
- Limited options.
Value: Average on the fruit, snacks, hot dog, and chips, as they’re standard Disney pricing. The potatoes and corn are better values.
Reputation: You won’t hear a lot of people talking about Liberty Square Market as most people pass right by on their way to Splash Mountain, Peter Pan’s Flight, Haunted Mansion, or another attraction. It’s perfectly decent for what it is and while it’s obvious and visible, most people pass by, making waits short.
What you see is what you get – there’s no “toppings bar,” which means no cheese, bacon, and other stuff, though potatoes should be served with a small packet of cheddar cheese. Just a packet of sour cream and some butter, with some “Mickey salt” sprinkled on top otherwise. Not a whole lot to say about this. It is what it is – I will say that it was served nice and hot and baked “very well.” If you’re looking for a baked potato, this is your spot.
Corn on the Cob:
It’s on the small side and comes with two little tubs of butter and a bunch of salt/pepper packets. This was prepared well just like the potato and served nice and hot. It’s now available with your choice of topping.
Baked Sweet Potato:
Served hot, it was just what you would expect from a sweet potato. It has salt rubbed on the skin and comes alongside an ounce of sour cream and two little butter containers. This would be a great use of a snack credit if you’re looking for something that’s actually food. A decent value for the money.
Since we took a look at the Hot Dog at Storybook Hot Dog, I won’t rehash that here. It’s a decent amount of food for the money, but nothing special. Sandwiches are covered here.
Disney switched out the cushioned chairs with backs for these Pecos Bill style stools back in July 2012. It does make it more likely that tables will be available because people are less likely to stick around without food, but they’re uncomfortable and uncovered. You can also opt to take your food inside to air-conditioned Columbia Harbour House, which is only a minute’s walk away.
