WDW Prep top Quick Service restaurants at Disney World

(Article last updated: July 21, 2017)

Quick Service dining at Disney World can be great because it's faster, doesn't require reservations (for the most part), and it's easy to split entrees. However, you'll want to pick the top Quick Service restaurants at Disney World to make the most of your dining experiences.

Here's some Quick Service info to help you find the best options for your trip...


About Quick Service dining

Although there are upsides to Quick Service dining, be aware that there are no characters at the meals, there can be long lines since reservations aren't allowed (except for Be Our Guest breakfast and lunch where reservations are allowed), and the food can get repetitive at many of them. Be sure to show up at off-peak times (like 11:00 for lunch) and pick locations with varied menus to help avoid some of those issues.

If you're on the Disney Dining Plan, be sure to check out the best Quick Service Disney Dining Plan values to make sure you're maximizing your credits.

I’m really surprised you don’t have Peco Bill’s Tall Tale Saloon on the Magic Kingdom list. That is our go-to for a quick-service lunch when in MK. Its generally a good value for the dining plan credits and the condiment bar is amazing!

caroline Barr

Can a child who’s actually using an adult dining plan,order off children’s menus? Or is it best to pay for her meal and keep her entitlement? Our eldest daughter will be 11 when we go and I think some restaurants for sit down will not suit her.

Carolyn

Our children are ages 9 and 10, we are going to Disney in January 2016, we are planning to lie about their ages, so they can both be classified as adults in the meal plan. It’s crazy that you would pay the same price for children 9yrs and younger! All these postings are helpful in my research – so much to know before going to maximize our valuable time there! Can’t wait!!!!

Jenn

We just came back a few weeks ago and hands down the best counter service we’ve had at WDW (this was our 5th trip) was at Starring Rolls at Hollywood Studios. There’s not a large variety at ALL. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s just pre-made sushi platters, and ham and turkey sandwiches. But I had the turkey and the daughter had the ham and they both were some of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had. Not only that, but this is the home to the infamous Butterfinger cupcake, which you can get as the dessert with the dining plan.

I’ve eaten at all of the above, excepting Columbia Harbor, and while the rest are good choices, I still say Starring Rolls beat them all.

im surprised no one said bongo Cuban cafe express! Absolutely amazing Cuban sandwich and the kids “chicken bites” we’re real and they loved them. The portions of the adults and kids were huge and at $10 for adults and$8 for kids a family of 4 could share lunch and eat for $20. This is located at Disney springs next to Wolfgang puck express.

Rebecca

I am looking to use a snack credit at Magic Kingdom for breakfast. I was planning on going to the Main Street Bakery, but I am really turned off my the Starbucks franchise. Correct me if I am wrong, I heard the Bakery has Starbucks drinks and baked goods at it (coming from the actually franchise- not Disney). Do you have any suggestions for other places I could grab a delicious snack for breakfast in Magic Kingdom?

Shannon

At Old Key West Resort, you can use a snack for biscuits with sausage gravy, you get two biscuits with the snack credit. Its really a large and hardy breakfast that stays with you, you can then have your quick service for lunch and dinner.

Angela

Now that they allow reservations at BOG, is that still consider Quick Service or is it a Table Service if you have a reservation?

Jenn

You probably have your answer somewhere else by now, but in case you don’t…it is still considered Quick Service for lunch. But you can make an ADR for it, and order your meal ahead of time. This makes checking in a LOT faster. They give you a plastic rose with a locator in it, so when your food is made, they bring it right to you. I definitely recommend it!

Amanda

I always really enjoy Sunshine Seasons. Also, last time my husband and I were in Orlando we stopped by downtown Disney to grab breakfast before we headed out of town. We ended up eating at Wolfgang Puck Express. The food was delicious and the service was awesome! We were very pleased and my make that a ritual stop when leaving every Disney trip!

Becci

After a little advice.

We’re heading to WDW at the beginning of June from the UK for the first time ever, with our 4 year old son.

Are the portion sizes generally pretty hefty? Do you know if we’d be allowed to just purchase 2 adult dining plans and then share with him? All 3 of us are pretty lite eaters, and it just seems like a lot of money.

Jenn

This is surely too late for you, but possibly something to think about for next time. It does sound like buying out of pocket would be best for you, however, keep this is mind too because it might work for you: While you have to buy the dining plan for your child, you don’t have to use it on them for quick service meals. So if you’re getting the dining plan that gives you two quick service meals and a snack, you can use his quick service credits for yourself and do additional meals, while you pay for him (a la cart, so you don’t have to buy anything but what he’ll eat). On the DDP, there’s no differentiation between adult and child. This IS NOT true for Table Service, but it is for Quick. We do this with our daughter. She’s 11 and has to get the adult meal plan, but she’s picky and would rather have the kid’s meal at a lot of places. It’s a waste of money to use an adult credit to get a kid’s meal. So we use her un-used credits for ourselves and buy her the kid’s meal out of pocket. Just something to think about. 🙂

Claire

Hi becky.

We had this and no you can’t 🙂 any one over 3 must pay for the dining plan.

If your light eaters it might be better for you to pay out of pocket.. We did and shared a lot of meals as they were so big 🙂

Dana

What is BOG that everyone is talking about??

Amanda Braun

Amber

I read that you can use the Kids Quicker Service credits for Adult meals instead of kids meals. Is this still the case with the MagicBands? I’m hoping it is as my kids would MUCH rather eat the adult meals then the kid menu options. We are looking into getting the Quick Service Meal Plan and I want to make sure I understand how it works. I had read that you have to order two times for a family of 4 (2Adults,2kids) because they would only let you ring up 2 adult meals at a time? Just want to make sure the info is current and accurate so we don’t end up getting stuck with kid quick service meals at the end of our trip.

Cheryl

Just checking to see if anyone knows if it’s still working order adult counter service meals with kids counter service credits. We are leaving for Disney this week! Thanks much.

Hernan

We ate at Wolfgang Puck Express (in Downtown Disney) several times and really enjoyed that place, not only for the food but also the excellent care provided therein.

With the Quick Service you can refill your sodas.
———————————-
Nosotros comimos en Wolfgang Puck Express (in Downtown Disney) varias veces y la verdad es que no solo disfrutamos de la comida sino también de la excelente atención que brindan en dicho lugar.

Con el Quick Service incluso, las bebidas son de canilla libre (gaseosas).

Shannon

We liked the ABC Commissary at DHS. My daughter and I had the quinoa salad with salmon and I think the boys had burgers and such. It was pretty good!
I love all of these recommendations. 🙂

Trina

The one group of restaurants that everyone left out was at some of the hotels. You can go there even if you aren’t staying at that particular hotel. Most have some type of food court with fruit and veggies along with better options for kids.

Kylie

CHH and Sunshine Seasons is two of our favorites as well. Also, Casey’s Corner is my favorite! They have the most amazing Corndog nuggets! My husband and I share his side of fries and its perfect. Also, pizzafari at animal kingdom is super yummy!
