We went with trepidation after reading some of the reviews but was surprised how good the food was. The sandwiches hit the spot for lunch was a great break in the middle of the day. The table next to us raved about the milkshakes which were just OK. We were also worried about the wait time so made reservations at 11:10 and only waited a few minutes. Service was fast and very friendly.

Went with family on Easter Saturday when the park was very crowded. Had a reservation for 7:10. We went early and were told to come back at 7:10. At 7:10 we were told they were 30 minutes behind "because the guests won't get up and leave." At 7:30 we were shown to a table that is six feet DIRECTLY inside the only door, so that EVERYONE who goes in and out would brush by our table and the wind would hit us each time the door opened. I asked for another table, and could see four that were available. We were told to go back outside "and we will see what we can do." Ten minutes later we were taken back into the restaurant and given a better table. The food was, at best, average. The service was poor. Our server was brusk and never refilled our water. When we asked for So Delicious, an almond milk ice cream substitute that is available at other WDW restaurants, we were told The Plaza does not have it. I doubt we will be back.

The food here is definitely more expensive than a food court but it is worth the few dollars more to get a quiet break from the parks. The service was good both times we visited and the food is prepared fresh. The ice cream, soup and salads are very expensive compared to the meals. Lunch and dinner are about the same price at about 20.00 per person and annual passholder discounts are given.

You are able to make priority seatin reservations here and this is a must visit.

Our first disney resort meal, not cheap, but what do you expect as it's disney however it was perfect, the meatloaf was brilliant, grandma's salad was the size of a dustbin lid, everything was just spot on, even the milkshake was delicious. The UK has a lot to learn from how these Americans do customer service.

We tend to stop at The Plaza Restaurant on every visit. We also learned that you don't need a reservation. That is why it's so hard to get a reservation to this place. It's small and the times to make a reservation are limited. So just walk up and sign up and wait to get your table.

The Vegan Sandwiches they have are good but I am in love with the Vegan Milkshakes which are usually hand stirred.
