    What are some great counter service places that get overlooked or are not usually crowded at Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios? We will be there Oct 26-Nov 6th. Thank you.

    Hi Angela - as you may expect, many of the counter service restaurants do get crowded.  There are a few that I like to visit that seem to have more seating available.

    Animal Kingdom - I like the Flame Tree BBQ.  It doesn't look as though there's much seating - but there's lots of tables tucked away, in nice shady areas.  Flame Tree BBQ also has some wonderful food, and is a great value.

    Magic Kingdom
    - The Columbia Harbour House, in Liberty Square, has loads of seating and gets a lot less crowded.  The food here is American fare.

    Hollywood Studios - The Backlot Express is tucked away near Star Tours and is not usually busy.  The food is relatively standard fare - hot dogs and hamburgers.

    Have a great vacation!
