    We have the dining plan and would like a QS option for lunch when visiting HS, but none of the QS options in the park appeal to us. Do you have any suggestions of where to go close by but outside the park? DD is a picky eater so pizza and sandwichs are out

    Hi Kathy,

    Thank you for your great question. I too have a picky eater so I love being able to read the menus for almost any Walt Disney World Resort restaurant online beforehand.

    If you are certain there is nothing that appeals to you for lunch at Disney's Hollywood Studios, I do have some ideas.

    It's just a quick boat ride from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Disney's Beach Club Resort where you will find Hurricane Hanna's Waterside Bar & Grill. This is a walk-up restaurant that has some yummy choices for kids like cheeseburgers or chicken nuggets as well as interesting options for adults like the Lobster, Shrimp and Scallop Roll. The atmosphere is delightful and would provide a nice break.

    Also, if you have the Park Hopper Option added to your Park Tickets, you can take that same boat to Epcot and delight in one of their many delicious quick-service restaurants. One of our favorites is Sunshine Seasons in The Land pavilion, where your little one can enjoy Smucker's Uncrustables or Macaroni & Cheese among other options. Our favorite menu item here is the Mongolian Beef!

    Finally, you are allowed to bring food into the park if you decide you would rather save that quick-service meal for another time. We have done this many times with our children when we know they wouldn't be interested in the dining option we chose. If you bring food items, you won't be able to bring alcohol, glass containers or a rolling cooler, so keep that in mind.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
