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.

Here are the WDW Prep fave Quick Service locations...

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

Be Our Guest Restaurant

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!

Kelsey

We LOVE BOG (both lunch and dinner). We will make special trips to MK just for lunch there! We usually wait about 30 min from the time we get in line to the time we have finished ordering, but the food is usually delivered quickly and has always been delicious! Plus, free refills in the MK! We are also huge fans of Pecos Bill and Casey’s Corner (who can eat a hot dog from Casey’s alone? We sure can’t!), and DH and his parents really like Cosmic Rays. I can take it or leave it. I’ve had some really good meals there, but I’ve also had food that was only semi-good.

We are also fans of the Backlot Express at DHS. While we are easy to please (chicken nuggets and burgers are just fine with us!), we really like the chicken nuggets at Backlot. They have the best honey mustard sauce on property – sweet instead of tangy/mustard-y, and they also have ranch and bbq dipping sauce (nice to change it up sometimes). Their marble cheesecake is a great way to end a QS meal, too. Plus, free refills and air conditioning! Not a huge fan of other QS @ DHS, though.

Kim Castillo

The Earl of Sand. holiday sandwich is the best so I am glad that you included it. If you have a AAA card you can get a discount too! Also love the Raglan Road QS. The fish and chips are really good. Not very big inside so it gets crowded. On my last visit there was only one cashier and why they put older workers in the “express” lane any where is a mystery to me???
I think that it bears repeating that if you are ordering QS, the menu presents everything in meal form, you can still order a la carte. I like to see meet the person that can finish a order of Disney fries!

Meridith

We were at WDW last week and ate at all of the places you named except Sunshine Seasons and Earl of Sandwich. All of them were different and delish. For BOG, we got in line around 10:50 and had about a 15 minute wait. There was a cast member handing out menus to look at while we waited, which was great.

Kayla

My favorite quick service is the Tangierine Cafe! I’m sure I’m in the minority though.

The absolute worst counter service is Pizza Planet at Hollywood studios. I got the antipasta salad and it had more chopped up meat than lettuce.

I totally agree that the choices for kids are awful. My daughter is a borderline pescatarian (only eats fish, no chicken / meat) and the only choice for her at most places is mac & cheese or pbj. She doesn’t like PBJ and she can’t eat mac & cheese at every meal.

Trista

I second the reviews of Tangierine Cafe and Pizza Planet. Tangierine Cafe was delicious, no line, and large portions. The food at Pizza Planet was mediocre and certainly not worth the absurdly long and slow line.

Pizza Planet is one of the worst restaurants on the entire planet! Steer your group away from this one. The food is horrible.

natalie

I LOVE Tangierine Cafe! It truly is a hidden gem. After eating such heavy meals, it’s a nice light change of pace. Chicken Shwarma platter is my fav!

HS has Starring Rolls which has great sandwiches and killer cupcakes. Same with Boardwalk Bakery!

Joe

I agree about Tangierine Cafe! It is the best!

Dayshel

I love Earl of Sandwich! On the day of our arrival, we take the bus to DTD to eat at Earl’s. The sandwiches are fresh made and the variety is sure to please the pickiest of eaters. If you want something changed or taken off, they will accommodate most requests. Sadly they removed the Frenchy, roast beef with Brie cheese and a smear of mustard, a few years ago. It was my favorite! I can’t wait to try the Thanksgiving in a sandwich this January when we visit WDW. And thanks as well for the tip about the kids QS menu not being divided. My niece and nephew tire quickly of burgers, mac & cheese, and PB&J.

The last time we were in WDW, my niece was 9 years old. She is now 11. Since she is considered an “adult” by ticket standards, does that mean her dining plan will be considered “adult” as well?

Gabby

I agree with all ur great picks but if I had to add one more I would add the quick service in mexicos future world! Yummm!

Amy C.

We were in WDW for the first time as a family in January. I did tons of research on restaurants and we ate at two of the places you listed – Columbia Harbor House and Earl of Sandwich. I was disappointed in both. I don’t even remember what I ordered at CHH but I remember that it seemed greasy. The worst part was that I was struck with diarrhea on Haunted Mansion right after we ate and almost didn’t make it to the restroom. The sandwich I got at Earl of Sandwich tasted like plastic and 2 of the kids didn’t even like the grilled cheese. I don’t know how you can mess up grilled cheese, but by my kids’ standards they did. To be fair, that was our last day and we were exhausted, so we might not have been the best judges.

That being said, it won’t deter us from trying other QS places on our next trip to WDW.

Lauri

We like to visit Pecos Bill at Magic Kingdom. I order the barbecue sandwich and like it very much. It’s near our favorite parade spot, so my kids and I grab a spot in the shade while my husband gets our food. Since we’re eating it as late lunch, we get it rather quickly.
I agree with you about quick service in Studios. We visited Pizza Planet at our last visit. I would probably eat there again since we are such Toy Story fans and everybody likes pizza.

Jay

I am almost done with our planning for our winter trip and every night I am amazed at something Disney missed the mark on…
Kids Pick options.

“Hey kids! Guess what? We are going to DISNEY WORLD! And EPCOT! (Cue ‘hoorays’ from kids).
“Now we can explore different cultures and taste foods from ALL OVER THE WORLD! (Hoorays again)
“Oh, sorry kids… you’ll have to do with a Smuckers uncrustable sandwich while mom and dad feat on succulent dishes.”

Ok, maybe I have an unusual kid, but he LOVES to try new foods and is especially interested if you tell him “They eat this in Africa/India/Japan, etc.”

It is no wonder the kids cost for the DDP is so low. The options are pitiful for QS.

I just find it amazing that you can go to a place like Norway and the only option is a PB&J sandwich. Norway isn’t the only place with that being the only option for a kid. What? They don’t have kids in Norway? Let my kid try what a kid in Norway would eat.

And to think all these kids with peanut allergies, WDW would serve PB&J throughout the park, knowing some kid may drop PB on a table, or smear it on a window and no one clean it up in time.

Is this still true??

What a great tip! Great to know!! That’s why I love your site!

Kari

We did this repeatedly on our trip last week. That way the kids would also get dessert. They would pick what they wanted and then go find us a table.

Kate

GREAT TIP!! We are going to WDW December 16th. My 9 year old is dreading ordering off of the “kids menu”, when her older sister can order from the adult menu.

When the “adults” order, do you present your magic bands at the QS counter while the youngest member saves a seat?

True, I know this secret, and intend on utilizing it. But I thought it was understood that we all kept this information hush-hush 🙂

Hello there, two quick questions.
1) is there a quick service restaurant that offers Mexican food?.
2) I see that there is no quick service restaurant from Hollywood studios , did any of them even got close to make the list, or they are just burgers and fries?

Julie

yes there is Mexico In Epcot for QS meals.
At HS I think the Commissary is great for the curry

Janice

All of the quick service restaurants Epcot World Showcase have good food, including Mexican. The good thing about eating there is that each family member can get things that they like and you can all sit down together and eat. Picky eaters can get their food from the American pavilion.

We ate at the ABC Commissionary (?) at Hollywood Studios and the burgers were fantastic!

Good choices. I’d add that Columbia Harbour House has good fish and chips, and that Earl of Sandwich has amazing brownie sandwiches. I’m a baker and hard to please.

Kylie

At Columbia Harbor house you can ask them and you can get fish and shrimp for the same price as fish and chips.. You get a full serving of shrimp (like you would the actual shrimp dinner) and same for fish. My husband and I can split the meal and its soooooo good!
