Seriously Good Quick-Service Dining at WDW
If you don’t want to spend the time and money on table service dining, that’s ok! Check out these seriously good quick-service dining options.
Many guests worry that they will be stuck eating burgers and hot dogs for their entire vacation. But Disney World has numerous quick-service options that are so much more than that!
In Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square, Columbia Harbour House offers a variety of delicious menu options. And if you’re a seafood-lover, this one is for you!
Entrees include a Lobster Roll (my personal favorite!), as well as other shrimp and fish dinners. For anyone that is not a fan of seafood, there are chicken strips and a salad.
Disney makes an effort to have something for everyone, including vegan options. The Doom Burger is a plant-based crab cake sandwich.
The kids’ menu consists of fish and shrimp options, and also chicken strips.
There are a number of quick-service options at Hollywood Studios that have alternatives to the standard burgers and hot dogs.
Woody’s Lunchbox has some delicious options, including the Brisket Melt, and Tomato Basil Soup.
But for wide variety of foods (and indoor seating), head to the ABC Commissary. This menu has certainly changed over the years!
If you’re looking for lighter options, there are a few delicious salads on this menu! For the taco fans, try the Shrimp Tacos or Pork Carnitas Tacos.
Looking for a good sandwich? The Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese is delicious. But if you don’t like spicy, go for the Chicken Club Sandwich.
At Animal Kingdom, it’s probably easier to find the alternatives than it is to track down a burger and a hot dog!
A guest favorite, Flame Tree Barbecue offers a variety of options, such as chicken, pork, and ribs.
Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes has a variety of Asian-American options, like Honey Sesame Chicken, Sweet and Sour Tempura Shrimp, Teriyaki Chicken Salad, and much more!
My can’t-miss dining experience at Animal Kingdom is Satu’li Canteen in Pandora. While I was apprehensive about trying it, I look forward to it every trip now!
At Satu’li Canteen, you can create your own bowl.
First, you choose your protein: Combination Grilled Beef and Chicken, Chili-Garlic Shrimp, Grilled Beef, or Grilled Chicken.
Then you choose your base: Red and Sweet Potato Has, Noodles, Rice and Beans, or Salad. And lastly, choose from one of the delicious sauce options.
These bowls are more than enough to leave your hunger satisfied. In fact, if you’re not feeling very hungry, it can be enough to share.
Epcot has so many must-try quick-service dining options, it can be hard to choose! The World Showcase offers such a wide variety of international cuisine, even when there isn’t a festival.
But if you happen to be at Epcot during one of the four festivals each year, it’s a great opportunity to learn about and try some different dishes.
If you do peruse festival booths, keep in mind that these portions are meant to be a tasting and are not full meals. You get to try more that way, though!
If you’re looking for a good spot to grab a meal in one place, the World Showcase still has many options.
For some quick and tasty Mexican food with seating along the water, La Cantina de San Angel is located outside of the Mexico Pavilion.
On the other side of the World Showcase, Yorkshire County Fish Shop has delicious Fish and Chips!
A somewhat hidden gem (really, it’s hard to see from the main walkway) is Katsura Grill in the Japan Pavilion. Menu offerings include various Sushi rolls, as well as meals with noodles, salad or rice.
My personal favorite at this location is the Shrimp Tempura Udon.
How to Choose?!
These are just a few of the seriously good quick-service dining options at Walt Disney World. It can be so hard to choose.
So many of these locations serve fast meals that taste like they should be served at a table service restaurant.
There are many great reasons to use a MickeyTravels agent, and one of those is to help plan your dining experiences!
