Top Ten Quick Service Locations at Disney World

Thinking about where to eat when you’re in a hurry? This list is for you! 

When putting together a list of Quick Service (or Counter Service) restaurants, it’s important for me to stress that a “Top Ten” list may give you insights and ideas…but your vacation and your schedule is tailored to your specific needs.

Some of these will fit, but some may not. So take this as a starting point for your research…and oh ya…have fun!

COLUMBIA HARBOUR HOUSE (MAGIC KINGDOM)

One of the few decent offering quick service options at the Magic Kingdom, the Battered Fish Platter and the Lobster Roll are a constant on an ever-evolving set of entrees. Probably one of the top themed restaurants in all of Magic Kingdom, so even if you don’t end up eating here…stop inside and look around!

ABC COMMISSARY (HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS)

The food is reasonable, and for a Quick Service location, the menu brings you all levels of theme park food. It’s not something to look forward to, but it’s also a great option is you really need to eat and it’s raining outside;)

We’ve found that eating here before peak lunch hours (11-1130a and after 1pm) is the best because of the air conditioning and ease of access to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.

FLAME TREE BBQ (ANIMAL KINGDOM)

BBQ – need I say more?

LA CANTINA DE SAN ANGEL (EPCOT)

This is a “do your research” moment because when we first thought about eating in EPCOT, our focus was on the other restaurants around the World Showcase…and then we stumbled upon the menu for La Catina.

First off, it’s perfectly situated for a transition meal after spending the morning in Future World and before doing the EPCOT march around the lagoon.

Secondly, the amount of food you get will leave you stuffed. It’s great quality and the seasonings definitely bring you to a traditional Mexican spot.

SUNSHINE SEASONS (EPCOT)

Another staple on the list of best Quick Service locations has to be Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion. Not only do they give you options, with around 6-7 different stations with 3-4 items each, but they provide you with some of the gosh darn tastiest meals that you’ll have inside of the four theme parks. And it’s healthy too…

PECOS BILL’S TALL TALE INN (MAGIC KINGDOM)

Go back to a time with Taco Salad, toppings bar with liquid gold (aka cheese) and this restaurant in Frontierland would have been #1 on the list…no doubt!

Well since they revamped the menu and made “improvements” like taking away the nacho cheese…the feeling across the internet and in the parks is that this location needs more time to find its groove. Still a great option for inside the parks, but not close to its former glory.

LES HALLES BOULANGERIE (EPCOT)

We stumbled upon France in EPCOT after lunch plans fell through in Morocco and although the sandwiches are edible, the main reason why the Boulangerie made it onto the list was 100% due to the desert option!

CONTEMPO CAFE (CONTEMPORARY RESORT)

Thinking about a complete hidden gem? The Contempo Cafe is located directly beside Chef Mickey’s brings a serious game to the Quick Service category. We put this on the list because of the proximity to the Magic Kingdom, and the fact that you can walk, eat and be back in the MK within about an hour…check it out!

SA’TULI CANTEEN (ANIMAL KINGDOM

Satu’li in Pandora: The World of Avatar is absolutely killing it! The quality, the service and the value is by far and away redefining the way that Disney does unique Quick Service!


So that’s our list. Thoughts? Comments? Did we miss any? Share them in the comments!
