Dinner at Liberty Inn
Liberty Inn, located in the American Adventure Pavilion in the World Showcase at Epcot, is a quick service restaurant that serves sandwiches and salads. It’s also one of the few restaurants in the World Showcase that is owned and operated by the Disney Company (most restaurants are leased by outside companies). So, it’s always nice to stop by this quick service restaurant where I know they have an allergy-friendly menu, and I can speak to a manager about options. Plus, they serve allergy-friendly chicken tenders here, which is almost always what we stop by to get. On this occasion, Brandon and I were at Epcot to check out the Festival of the Arts and wanted a quick bite as we explored all the festival fun.
I wouldn’t say that Liberty Inn has a very detailed atmosphere. It’s meant to resemble colonial America. But, the theming is fairly sparse. You’ll find a few corners, like the photo below that include some colonial decor.
Overall, you’ll mostly just find a ton of tables for seating because generally this restaurant gets really crowded.
When we visited, it was only a few hours before the park closed, and we found the restaurant to be pretty quiet. That’s a rarity, so we really enjoyed having lots of seating options.
Since Liberty Inn is a Disney owned restaurant, they do carry an allergy-friendly lunch and dinner menu. You can also speak to a manager at any time if you have additional questions or have multiple dietary restrictions. I always recommend this, especially if you want to discuss food preparation, ingredients, or are looking for customized dishes.
Liberty Inn is also currently offering mobile ordering. If you have a special dietary need, you can utilize this option. But, it only allows you to select one dietary restriction when ordering. With this in mind, I would only order through mobile ordering if you have one special dietary need that’s listed on the option (currently, this includes the top 8 common allergens). If you have any questions or multiple dietary restrictions, I would order in person.
We have used mobile ordering at Liberty Inn and at Backlot Express. We’ve only ordered allergy-friendly chicken tenders with mobile ordering service too, so I’m still testing out the waters with this ordering option.
On this occasion, we both ordered allergy-friendly chicken tenders and French fries through mobile ordering. Brandon prefers the allergy-friendly chicken tenders to the regular ones, even though he can have gluten/wheat.
When our orders arrived, we dug in. Currently, Liberty Inn is serving the Ian’s brand allergy-friendly chicken tenders. Both, Brandon and I thought our servings were generous, and we both left the restaurant very full.
While I wouldn’t say the food at Liberty Inn is anything special, I’m always glad it’s an option in the World Showcase. And, even better is that they have allergy-friendly chicken tenders there, making it a great go-to spot for a gluten free and dairy free fried food option.
