My favorite Quick Service spots in Disney World

My favorite Quick Service spots in Disney World

If you’re getting a Disney Dining Plan of any kind, you’ll want to do a little bit of planning in advance to make sure you eat at the best Quick Service spots! Take advantage of those credits, because there are some seriously delicious places to redeem your Quick Service meals.

I’ll break my favorites down by park and location. I only include places I’ve eaten myself, so your favorites might not be on my list!

Animal Kingdom

My favorite quick service spot in Animal Kingdom is Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe. (Not to be confused with the table service Yak & Yeti, which isn’t so good.) The serving sizes used to be much bigger, but even now, I love their chicken fried rice!

Flame Tree Barbecue is also great. Plus, you can get the biggest bang for your buck here. This is where to go if you want to split a few credits across your family.

Satu’li Canteen in Pandora is highly rated by most visitors, too. I didn’t get to go on our last trip, though – it was packed!


I love, and I mean love, Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion. This is a cafeteria-style eatery with something for everyone. You can get a ton of food here for one credit, and they have delicious and adorable desserts!

Another great option is Tangierine Cafe in Morocco. If you like Mediterranean-style food, this is delicious. Plus, you get a ton of food with your Disney Dining Plan credit.

I’ve also heard great things about Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in France, although usually by the time I make it to France, I’m looking exclusively for macaron ice cream sandwiches.

Magic Kingdom

Your best option for quick service dining in Magic Kingdom is definitely Be Our Guest. But I do not recommend trying to eat here without a reservation! When we ate here on our last trip, it was absolutely packed – and it was a fairly quiet day in Magic Kingdom.

For a less planned quick service stop, I love Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe. The Southwestern fare is tasty and a crowd-pleaser.

Hollywood Studios

I don’t think this is a hot take, but I highly recommend eating elsewhere on the day you plan to go to Hollywood Studios.

Woody’s Lunch Box is definitely good – although I don’t think it’s worth the crowd. Otherwise, I have very little interest in the quick service offerings at Hollywood Studios. We usually snack on popcorn, ice cream, etc. and head for an early dinner outside of the park, usually at a resort or at Epcot, which is only a 15 minutes walk away.


If you’re looking to use a quick service credit but don’t want to go to the park, there are many good options – especially at Disney World resorts. Personally, I’ve always loved the cafeteria at Pop Century Resort – it’s nothing special, but always tasty. The Art of Animation cafeteria is just as good, and I like their breakfast even better.

Another great option – The Mara at Animal Kingdom Lodge! You might even find the zebra dome.
