Table service restaurants and festivals make up our favorite Walt Disney World dining experiences, but sometimes a quick service restaurant with options perfect for everyone can make the ideal fast, light meal for a busy theme park day in Florida. With an abundance of options throughout the parks, we've sorted through our favorites at the start of 2023:
Magic Kingdom® Park
Nestled in a quiet corner across from Pirates of the Caribbean, this gem provides fun twists on some quick service staples that differentiates its menu from the usual faire of chicken tenders and burgers. The Veranda Chicken Strips—tossed in a sweet orange-soy glaze—and the Peanut Butter, Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread and Banana Sandwich remain among our favorite quick service dishes in Magic Kingdom Park.
The iconic Mainsteet, U.S.A. Area hotdog house remains a regular part of our rotation. It has long been our favorite place to get a hotdog at Walt Disney World Resort, and its corndog nuggets deserve special mention as a frequent item of ours.
Electric Umbrella's transformation has resulted in one of the best variety quick service menus in all of Walt Disney World Resort. Much in the same vein as Tortuga Tavern, the restaurant elevates wide-appeal dishes just enough to make them interesting without losing all appeal for more selective eaters. We recommend the French Bistro Burger, General Tso Chicken Salad and Curry-spiced Pizza.
Choza de Margarita
It is difficult to go wrong with any location in World Showcase, but the big flavors at the quick service stand in the Mexico Pavilion is our top choice. Some of Walt Disney World Resort's best guacamole takes center stage, with a handful of entrees that are consistent standouts among great choices in EPCOT.
Disney's Animal Kingdom®
This Pandora—The World of Avatar spot sits among our favorite quick service in all of Walt Disney World Resort. Grilled meats in customizable bowls present quality, fresh flavors in a park that is filled with good eats.
Yak & Yeti™ Local Food Cafes
Though we could suggest tons of spots for our next pick in the park, the variety here, as well as the unique breakfast menu, makes it the perfect all-day dining option for all palates.
Disney's Hollywood Studios®
Docking Bay 7
This Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge dining location serves our much-loved Ronto Wraps, salads, and plenty of unique options that transform familiar dishes into something otherworldly.
Woody's Lunch Box
Fast, casual, simple, and delicious makes for an incredibly strong and fun menu at this Toy Story Land stop. Totchos and the grilled cheese and tomato soup make up our favorites here, but the entire menu is an easy recommendation.
