    We are arriving in WDW on Saturday for our first visit! We did not making dinning reservations for our arrival day, what do you suggest for eating that night at the MK? Should we call now to make last minute reservations or take our chances?

    Hi Kristen,

    Just a few days away from your first Disney World trip, you guys have to be so excited! I am just a few days away from another Disney World trip and I can hardly sit still.

    No worries as there are a number of counter service options at Magic Kingdom that are quite delicious. Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, across from the Mad Hatter Tea Party, features chicken and burgers and offers some lively entertainment from Sonny the Alien. Pinocchio Village Haus next to It's a Small World offers a menu of chicken nuggets, salads and pizza, and the Colombia Harbour House across from the Haunted Mansion, has a great selection of fried fish or chicken nuggets, salad, or tuna fish sandwiches. You can also stop in to Peco Bill's back in Frontierland for burgers, turkey wraps and BBQ pork sandwiches. You can find a copy of the menu choices at under dining and Magic Kingdom. There are also a number of food carts throughout the park that offer hot dogs and a Disney World favorite, turkey legs.

    If you are not excited about any of those choices you can still call 407-939-3463 to check on availability at any of the Magic Kingdom table locations, or check with City Hall once you arrive at the park. Although we love the table service restaurants, we have always been very happy with our counter service meals and have eaten at all of these Magic Kingdom locations a number of times. I am positive you will find something to please even the pickiest eater.

    Have a fantastic time!
