*This dining experience took place in January 2017.
Liberty Inn, located in the American Adventure Pavilion at Epcot, is a quick service restaurant that serves up burgers, sandwiches, and chicken tenders. Though the food isn’t super fancy, it’s a good go-to for me whenever I’m in Epcot.
Liberty Inn, unlike many of the restaurants in the World Showcase, is actually owned & operated by the Disney Company, which means they adhere to Disney’s food allergy and special dietary needs protocols, and they have an allergy-friendly menu.
More often than not, when I visit Liberty I’m getting allergy chicken tenders. They are gluten free, dairy free and free of the top 8 common allergens, plus others like corn. (Always double-check with a manager or chef to confirm ingredients and safety before consuming)
On this particular visit, I was joined by my friend Ron who was visiting from out-of-town. We decided to hang out at Epcot that day and of course, ended up grabbing lunch. Both of us figured Liberty Inn was an easy lunch to get.
Because we both have special dietary needs, we ended up getting two orders of allergy chicken tender and fries. These take just a bit of extra time to prepare, and so we we grabbed a seat by the far window where we were told to pick up our special diets order.
Though I mentioned it in my last review, I’ve always just been told to wait at the regular counter. Ron told me that he was surprised that I’d never experienced that before, as it’s been that way for the past few years whenever he’s visited. That was pretty interesting, but just goes to show you that experiences and procedures can vary from visit to visit for each guest.
The chicken tenders and fries on this visit were excellent, as usual. I thought the frying was well-done, and I actually like my tenders cooked a bit longer, so the coating is extra crispy, which these were. My only complaint about Liberty Inn is that they don’t have barbecue sauce or honey mustard for the tenders. That would make them perfect!
Overall, Liberty Inn is the perfect spot to grab a special diets friendly meal during an Epcot visit. The chicken tenders are a great go-to, but they also have many other options too.
