There’s a lot to love in Disney Parks–so much so that narrowing it down to what we love most is pretty impossible. Here then, the challenge of picking the Top 3 Reasons We Love Liberty Square. It would have been easy to have other items make this list, so see if your favorites made the list.
The Haunted Mansion
I’m sure there’s someone out there who doesn’t like Haunted Mansion — I haven’t met them yet, however. To me, this ride is the ultimate Disney classic. A storyline that grows throughout the years. Special effects that, although not high-tech by modern standards, still wow. A catchy song. And that script–they simply don’t write them like that anymore. If anyone has a top 3 list for Liberty Square that doesn’t include Haunted Mansion, I’m going to need to show them another feature of Liberty Square–the pillory.
When it comes to grabbing a bite to eat, my rule has often been Never Eat In Fantasyland (although I’ve softened up a bit over the years on that). If I had a corollary to that, it would be Always Eat In Liberty Square Instead. Looking for a nibble? Sleepy Hollow succeeds with its waffles and waffle sandwiches. Want a solid choice for a quick service meal? Once it reopens from its COVID-necessitated closure, Columbia Harbour House has some of the best food at Magic Kingdom. And how can you go wrong with the all-you-can-eat meal at Liberty Tree Tavern? (More Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake, please!) Liberty Square is my comfort food at Magic Kingdom, and I’m sure many would agree.
The History-Inspired Details
From the Liberty Tree with its lanterns to the Liberty Bell, and more, there’s so many hidden details paying homage to American colonial-era history around Liberty Square. Informative signs can be found explaining some key features, but there’s even more that you can find out by talking to cast members in the area. Want a preview of some of what you can find?
