    Can anyone recommend some good "quick service" dining spots in the Magic Kingdom area or surrounding resorts? Kid friendly!

    Even as teens, my kids still love dining at Cosmic Ray's because of its varied offerings (sandwiches, hamburgers, & chicken) and the entertainment provided by Sonny Eclipse (a futuristic lounge singer). 

    Similarly, Columbia Harbour House offers one of their favorites:  fish 'n chips as well as lighter sandwiches (a nice break from hamburgers).  It also is two stories with the secret room (my sons' words) that is a little room that actually overlooks that passageway from Fantasyland to Liberty Square. 

    Pecos Bill has hamburgers (with lots of fixins), taco salad, bbq, and chicken wraps.  Lots of fun to take an extra look at the posters in the restaurant.

    And finally, my sons' absolute-must-visit-every-trip choice:  Casey's Corner for hot dogs and fries. What they like is that in the back of the restaurant is a little bleacher area where they get lost watching vintage black/white Disney cartoons.  It is a nice break from the heat, too!

    And of course, all the resorts on the monorail have counter service restaurants in them that also offer yummy selections.  It is fun to break up the day and visit the resorts (they are amazing just by themselves). 

    Thanks for the question! Please don't hesitate to ask more.
