Best Quick Service Restaurants: Disney Parks Edition

With so many choices in each Disney World park for Quick Service, it’s hard to know where to go. I like to go to certain ones that I KNOW are good instead of just opt for the nearest place with a menu.

I have tried almost all of the Quick Service spots in the Parks, and this list is strictly my opinion (and my children’s, because if they’re happy I’m happy, right?!) I’m going to leave Be Our Guest off the list because it’s not a quick-serve  since it requires a reservation. This list also doesn’t include any Resort Restaurants.  Reminder: QS means any food court, walk up restaurant, fast food, counter service, etc.

Hollywood Studios:

Animal Kingdom

We eat most of our lunches in the Parks at QS spots. Two reasons- by mid-day we are in full Park-Mode and don’t want to spend a lot of time eating. Second, we like to save our Table Service Credits for a nice breakfast buffet OR a fine dining character meal. I do like to stop at a Bakery such as Gaston’s Tavern or Main Street Bakery for brunch sometimes too. They have snack and QS credit options like Gaston’s amazing vinnamon rolls!

*Bonus Tips for QS restaurants:

  • Kids can often split an adult-sized meal
  • Take baggies for leftovers
  • You get a drink and dessert too
  • Order a bottled water so you can take it with you when you leave
  • If you aren’t that hungry, just order a la carte, just the sandwich, with no sides or dessert

  1. In regards to your list, I would beg to differ with a few.

    Casey’s is a much better option than Tortuga Tavern. They are open every day, unlike Tortuga. Casey’s has hot dogs, corn dogs and nachos. When open, Tomorrowland Terrace is a great spot as well. Plentiful seating, AC (even though it’s outdoors) – the chicken sandwich is delicious! And, of course – how could you not mention Columbia Harbor House? While it’s not your typical QS restaurant, that’s what makes it great. There are no burgers here, but there are nuggets for the picky eaters. But there is also salmon, lobster rolls, fried shrimp and fish and even clam chowder! I’d hit up CHH over Tortuga or Pecos Bill any day (and, honestly, usually do).

    At Epcot, you neglected Yorkshire County Fish Shop. Again, not a typical QS, but a very tasty one! Much better than a boring burger in America.

    At Hollywood Studios, Min and Bill’s is a go-to for me, especially now with the super-yummy mac and cheese! How can you not love pulled pork mac and cheese, or pretzel-wrapped hot dogs? Yummy!

  2. I would like to point out that you only get Drink and Dessert if you are using the Dining Plans. If you pay out of pocket (like we do), your meal consists of an entree + side (think burger + fries). Drinks and dessert will cost extra.
    However, by paying out of pocket, you can save money by buying an Entree Only (burger, no fries) if you aren’t that hungry, skipping a soda, and not buying the cheap (quality) desserts.

  3. really are you really trying to say that cosmic rays is good food .. it is a dry hamburger with strange toppings .. and they taste terrible …even the chicken fingers or just awful … maybe the waffle place down at the end of the right hand side road of the castle .. they have sandwiches till a certain time and then that waffle with strawberries and whip cream …. caseys perhaps

  4. I think you;re way off on Epcot. Liberty Inn over Yorkshire County Fish Shop? Their fish & chips is amazing, plus a great dining pavilion along the lake. I was less than impressed the one time I ate at Lotus Blossom – my chicken dish was basically popcorn chicken with a dipping sauce, but that was about 5 or 6 years ago. At Magic Kingdom, I have to add Columbia Harbour House for their Lobster Roll & Pinnochio’s Village Haus for the flatbreads. At HS in April we really enjoyed the BBQ Port Mac & Cheese at Min & Bill’s Dockside Diner, plus you can take it into the Indy Show.

  5. Turrible list. Tortuga tavern is hardly ever open. pecos bills and starlight cafe are the exact same thing. Libery inn has crappy burgers and nuggets in the middle of all the amazing cuisine of the world showcase. Hope you don’t give your clients this advice.
