Thank you for the comment regarding my family!
We were disappointed that our pre opening time was no longer pre opening too, but Crystal Palace is so awesome so it didn't matter! Love puffed French toast and I enjoyed my small serving if the breakfast lasagna too! Hoping to get back soon do we can try again!

I agree that a CP bkfst anytime of the morning is perfect -- whether it be pre-park opening, or last bkfst seating

Maybe I should try the breakfast lasagna again too in a smaller size. I'm certainly willing to give it another try.

Enjoying your pics and review so far!

A question if you can answer without wasting too much of your time-how do you post the links to your later posts right in the title? I know how to insert the http address, but don't know how to get that right into the title versus just alongside it...any suggestions are appreciated!

Hello, welcome!

Here is the way I was shown to do it, although I have heard there is another way too --
Before your http address type [url=
Follow the http adress with ]
Then type in what you want to do for the title
Followed by [/type the word url]

It seems like a lot because of how I wrote out the instructions, but its simple. Had to be careful in how I wrote it out the last step or else it would link the title and you wouldnt see the instructions Dont actually put "type the word"

That should do it!

Ah-ha...there is the other way! I was taught a different way.

Liberty Tree Tavern - Dec 21 - 1230pm

On December 21, we had a 1230pm ADR for Liberty Tree Tavern.

We were strolling through Frontierland, headed towards Liberty Square and decided to stop by about noon to see if we could go ahead and check in. We were told we would have to wait a few minutes, but they could seat us shortly.

About 1215pm we were called to our table -- where they left us with about 10 coloring pages and probably 50 crayons (no kidding!!) We waited for our waiter...and waited...and waited. (Now we are glad we have all the coloring pages and crayons!!) Finally about 10 minutes later our waiter, Ed approached our table. He seemed very flustered (yet the section wasnt very busy...3 other tables besides ours -- a couple, a family of 4 and a group of 10 or so) and took our drink order. We had already decided on what we wanted to eat since we had time to look over the menu, and the little boys were asking for food, so Bo asked if we could go ahead and place our appetizer order. Ed seemed put off by this , but went ahead and took our appetizer and entree orders.

I the glasses here -- I need to remember to buy one sometime!



Bo & I shared Crab and Spinach Dip for Two Blue Crab, Spinach and Cream Cheese with Warm Flatbread. This was pretty good, however I do wish there were a few more pieces of flatbread. There was a lot of dip leftover to eat with just the breadbowl.



Hunter ordered Declaration salad Field Greens tossed in your choice of our Tavern-made Dressing or Garlic-Buttermilk Dressing. He did not care for the dressing at all -- and there was a LOT of the dressing on there. Needless to say, he did not eat much of this salad.



Harper ordered Tavern Fried Cheese with Marinara Sauce. She loves cheese sticks and had no complaints about these. There were 4 on the plate, but she ate 1 before I got the picture



The little boys had apple slices for their appetizer.

For our entrees, I ordered The Liberty Boys BLT Slow-roasted Pork, fresh Greens and Tomatoes on House-made Bread with Caramelized Shallots and Mushroom-Mayonnaise Spread. Ok, honestly, I thought the meat was salty and a bit fatty. I did enjoy the bread. I ordered the fresh fruit as my side. Bo also tried a bite of my sandwich and agreed the meat was quite fatty and salty.



Bo ordered New England Pot Roast - Our Tavern Keeper's Favorite Braised Beef in a Cabernet Wine and Mushroom Sauce served with Mashed Potatoes and Garden Vegetables. He thought it was "meh" -- not the best thing he has ever had, but not awful.



Hunter ordered Vegetarian Burger House-made Potato Quinoa Vegan Patty topped with a fresh Vegan Tofu-Tzatziki sauce with fresh Fruit or Sweet Potato Fries. I dont know what in the world made him order this to be completely honest , but he said he wanted to try something very different that day. He said the bread was very tough. The patty was very dry and almost the texture of very dry, leftover mashed potatoes. He didnt care for the sauce. He ordered the fresh fruit as his side. Needless to say, he only at the fruit and the lettuce and tomato.



Harper ordered Pilgrims' Feast Traditional Roast Turkey served with Herb Bread Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes and a Garden Vegetable. She said the turkey was dry (Bo tried it...it was indeed dry -- even with the gravy). The mashed potatoes tasted like they had been prepared a while. She had a few bites of the dressing, but said it wasnt as good as mine and she is not a huge green bean fan. So...overall, she was not happy with the food today.



The little boys each had mac-n-cheese. They ate about half of it.



We never saw Ed through the entire meal after our food was delivered . There was another large party seated near us who were complaining about where the waiter was -- I guess Ed was just not having a great day. He finally came by and asked if we were having dessert. You might think he would ask how the food was considering my plate was almost untouched...Hunter's plate was almost untouched...and Harper's plate was almost untouched, but he did not. We went ahead and ordered dessert (hoping something good would come of the meal), but we really wanted to just be done with this place today.

Bo, Hunter & I all ordered Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake Vanilla Cake with a Gooey Toffee Filling, Caramel Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream. Thank goodness for small favors that this was delicious!



Harper ordered Martha Washington's Cake. A slice of rich Chocolate Cake, layered with a liberating Chocolate Icing. She enjoyed this - and it was a big slice!



The little boys were starting to get tired, so we just ordered them apple slices to go, so Ed brought them out in a bowl and gave us cups to put them in.

Ed offered us to-go refills on all our drinks, so Bo & I took him up on that and got some more Pomegranite Lemonade, Hunter & Harper got some more Root Beer and he brought out 2 apple juices for the boys.

Our bill before the automatic 18% gratuity was $151.80 - 6TS credits used

Overall, we were very disappointed in LTT on this particular day. We had eaten here 1 other time before and quite enjoyed our meal, but on this day, everything was just "off".

That's so disappointing about LTT.....there's nothing worse than starting your experience with an absentee / put off server. That happened to us at Sci- fi and it went form bad to worse.

I have to admit, I'm rethinking LTT now after reading your review.....for "meh", its a lot of money to spend on a meal..... I'm so glad you posted this.

Hmmm, I'm rethinking LTT as well. We've never eaten here, but liked that it was in MK. I'm not sire now though, I hate to waste more park time to leave for a meal though so we may just brave it.

Our experience at LTT was ok also. The restaurant was a little dirty, but the service was wonderful (and so was the ooey gooey toffee cake). We were disappointed with the crab dip, but it looks like they changed the recipe at least. Ours was a bizarre grayish orange color and didn't taste good at all. It looks as though the recipe and the presentation have changed, which doesn't sound like a bad thing. Too bad about the veggie burger; I hope it doesn't curb your child's enthusiasm about all veggie burgers! Most are quite good I've found.

Thanks so much to all for the help posting the links! Your advice worked beautifully.
