Hidden Dining Gem At Disney’s Magic Kingdom: The Plaza On Main Street
Do you want to know about one of the best kept secrets in the Magic Kingdom? It’s at the very end of Main Street and has the perfect view of Cinderella’s castle underneath those cheery yellow umbrellas. It’s the Plaza On Main Street, and let me tell you, it’s definitely one of my very favorite spots in all of Disney World and might just become yours too!
Plaza On Main Street
First of all, the Plaza sticks with the theming of Main Street, U.S.A., just like a classic American restaurant at the turn of the century. Their offerings are definitely classics and the portion sizes, as many Disney World offerings tend to be, are generous. The decor is old-timey, but nice and even though the seating area isn’t huge, we didn’t feel cramped even with all eight of our guests during our last trip!
Due to it’s unique location on Main St. U.S.A., you may get a surprise visit from the Mayor of Main St. himself! On our last visit, the honorary Mayor was chosen from among the restaurant guests. Her whole family was invited to ride in the parade later that day and have some special experiences!
Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
Now, let’s talk about the most important thing: the food! In this case, I think desserts should be talked about first! Our favorite perk of eating at the Plaza is the offering of ice cream and milkshakes. There is always a special milkshake and sundae being offered. On our last visit, it was a giant milkshake topped with donuts. These are goodies you can’t get anywhere else on Disney World property and since the Plaza Restaurant adjoins the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, everything is fresh and gets to your table super fast!
We love the Plaza because of one final ice cream related perk: for ONLY $9 you can get all-you-can-drink milkshakes! They come in a variety of flavors and every time you need a refill you can get a different flavor or keep getting more of the same. It’s worth a visit to the Plaza just to take advantage of this awesome deal.
More Delicious Offerings At The Plaza On Main Street
As far as entrees go, the Plaza offers a nice mix of plated dinner and sandwiches. A personal favorite of mine is definitely the meatloaf! Thick slices of meatloaf are served up in a delicious homemade gravy with sides of garlic mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies. This plate was definitely enough for two to share and was delicious.
The sandwiches, salads, and burgers are also fabulous. My dad has to stick to a heart-healthy diet and the chicken-strawberry salad was a great choice for him. Topped with delicious strawberries, cucumbers and a white-wine vinaigrette, it was light yet still filling. The grilled chicken sandwich and the Honey-Barbecued Beef Brisket Burger were also excellent choices.
Make It A Priority!
Dining at the Plaza is always a treat and we thoroughly enjoy the view and the food. Make sure that The Plaza On Main Street is at the top of your next Disney World Vacation to-do list! You won’t be disappointed.
- The Plaza is a table service credit if you are on the Disney Dining Plans. Also note on the menu all of the items that are snack credits! Remember, a snack credit will have this emblem on the menu next to it!
If you are heading to the Magic Kingdom, be sure to know what you can bring and and what you can NOT bring in the parks!
