    What are the best places to eat in WDW? Quick serve, snacks and table dining! I dont want to miss any of the best eateries!

    Hi Ashley!

    I'm bursting with excitement over your question because I'm a Disney foodie!

    The short answer is that you can't go wrong with any of the Walt Disney World eateries. Property-wide, the commitment to excellence in quality, service, and overall experience is unmatched in the industry. That being said, let me share a few of my favorites:


    1) Dole Whip from the Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom (these things have a cult following). 
    2) Carrot Cake Cookie from The Writer's Stop in Disney's Hollywood Studios (just follow the paparazzi). 
    3) Anything from Karamell-Kuche in Epcot's Germany Pavilion (Danke Schoen!).

    Quick-Service Restaurants:

    1) Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom (it's a quick-service restaurant for lunch only).
    2) Columbia Harbour House in the Magic Kingdom (snag a window table upstairs).
    3) Yorkshire County Fish Shop in Epcot's U.K. Pavilion (jolly good stuff).

    Table-Service Restaurants (Resorts):

    1) Victoria & Albert's in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (a culinary thrill ride).
    2) Artist Point in Disney's Wilderness Lodge (try the buffalo).
    3) The California Grill in Disney's Contemporary Resort (an amazing view for Magic Kingdom fireworks).

    Table-Service Restaurants (Theme Parks):
    1) The Hollywood Brown Derby in Disney's Hollywood Studios (try the Cobb salad).
    2) Via Napoli in Epcot's Italy Pavilion (their pizza is the best I've ever eaten).
    3) Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom (dinner reservations are tough to get, but well worth it).

    I would love to keep the conversation going if you want thoughts on restaurants that I didn't mention. So, feel free to write back if you want to bounce any ideas off of me!

    Bon Appetit!

    Best regards,
