    I don’t understand what qsr means.... can anyone explain it to me and if I want to sit down and eat why can’t I make a reservation for that I’m just not understanding it... thank you

    Hi Melissa,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    "QSR" simply stands for Quick Service Restaurant and describes a counter-service restaurant where you place your order, pay for your order, and seat yourself in the seating area. You can take a look at a complete list of Walt Disney World Quick Service Restaurants online. Many serve full meals, while others primarily serve specialty snacks. Several Quick Service Restaurants also offer the added benefit of Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering, and that is a great convenience.

    Quick Service Restaurants typically don't require reservations, while reservations are recommended for Table Service Restaurants. For example, take a look at two restaurants at Magic Kingdom in Liberty Square — Liberty Tree Tavern and Columbia Harbour House. Liberty Tree Tavern is a Table Service Restaurant, and you'll see you can check availability and make a reservation. Columbia Harbour House is a Quick Service Restaurant, and you won't see a feature to check availability or make a reservation as none is needed. One restaurant that operates a bit differently due to its great popularity is Be Our Guest Restaurant, which is a Quick Service restaurant that accepts reservations.

    What I love about dining at Walt Disney World is that there are so many choices for great food experiences — over 500 food and beverage locations, including over 300 Quick Service locations.  I'm certain you'll find one that'll become a favorite.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
