    Doug, sorry for all the questions. Hopefully this will be it. Can you reccomend some good quick service areas for each park. ( One's we can get the most bang for the buck, the most food to help save on spending any extra money), on the dining plan?


    Are you kidding me? I LOVE the questions! Keep them coming!

    So here are my favorite counter service restaurants in the four parks, taking value and quality as my lead reasons for choosing them;

  • Magic Kingdom: Pecos Bill's Tall Tale Inn and Cafe (burgers)
  • Epcot: Tangerine Cafe (Moroccan)
  • Hollywood Studios: Sunset Ranch Market (American food variety)
  • Animal Kingdom: Flame Tree BBQ (great BBQ and better views!)  
  • Now here are some general comments. At Epcot don't think you only have the Moroccan choice that I list (which is also a bit pricey). That is just my favorite. There are so many great counter service options in the World Showcase that you have a lot of great choices. I am partial to the stands in the UK, Germany, China, and Mexico. For greater variety and more American standards you could go to the food court in the Land Pavilion in the Future World area as well. 

    For Hollywood Studios I also like the ABC Commissary, which has some international choices.

    But without question, the Flame Tree BBQ is my favorite of all! The views from the grotto seating are worthy of the fabulous BBQ!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
