Liberty Tree Tavern Lunch

The front of the restaurant was decked out in its Autumn finest…

I was super excited about this lunch for two reasons: 1) It’s one of my favorite restaurants at Disney World for lunch 2) I was to dine with someone from here on the DIS. Someone who I had known for more than two years but never before had the opportunity to meet in person. To say I was excited to finally meet Joh (wilma bride) and her family is definitely an understatement.

Anyway, I was happily sitting on the porch awaiting Joh’s arrival when a nice elderly couple with a lovely English accent walked up and sat down in the open seats beside me. Much to my surprise this would end up being Joh’s in-laws and two of my five dining companions for lunch. Moments later Joh arrived along with her DH, and their son, who was an adorable “mini-me” of his father. Here is a photo of this wonderful threesome…

And so I had the very good fortune of being part of the awesome “wilma bride” family of England during our lunch that day at Liberty Tree Tavern.

Colony Salad with Washington Apples, Sweet Pecans, Applewood-smoked Cheddar, Craisins Dried Cranberries, and Grilled Chicken tossed with Field Greens in a Honey-Shallot Vinaigrette

And for dessert…

Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake – Vanilla Cake with a Gooey Toffee Filling, Caramel Sauce, and Vanilla Ice Cream

Both of these were delicious, as always! No complaints, except that I was way too full to eat more than a few bites of my dessert. But thank goodness it did not go to waste, as Joh’s son was also a big fan of the Ooey Gooey. I offered him the rest of my dessert and he happily accepted my offer. It was a definite win/win! :thumbsup2

Just like my three previous visits to Liberty Tree Tavern, this was again a great lunch and one of my trip favorites. Thanks so much for adopting me for lunch, Joh & family! Sorry I couldn’t pull off an English accent. Oh, and see you again soon in Japan! ;)
