User: Tony's Town Square Restaurant
Date of cup: 1980s
Notes: This oversized cup with overglaze decal decoration was made for Tony's Town Square Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom, Main Street USA, at Disney World, located in Orange and Osceola counties, Fla. It opened July 24, 1989, replacing the Town Square Restaurant – without Italian theme – which was there when the park opened in 1971. Tony's remains in operation as of 2010.
The restaurant is a replica of Tony's, the dining spot behind which Lady and the Tramp shared their famous spaghetti dinner in the animated movie of the same name.
Cartoon characters Lady – a Cocker Spaniel – and the Tramp, in tan, grays and red with gray Art Deco border on white body.
