    What are some great quick service restaurant options at WDW with good food and/or cool dining atmospheres? Also, I was looking online at the Disney Dining plan and noticed that meal plans include one beverage. Do you have to pay for any refills? Thanks!

    Hey Jessica!  My family and I are huge foodies and we love dining at Walt Disney World.  The Disney Dining Plan is such a great option, I just love it.  

    One of the tastiest spots to use your quick service credits is Fairfax Fare at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  You can view the lunch menu and see if it is right for you but I would suggest trying the Macaroni and Cheese and Truffle Oil Hot Dog.  This dog is even topped with crumbled bacon.  I know it sounds strange, but it is really good.  It is a must eat for me at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  My husband always enjoys the chicken and spareribs on the menu.  Fairfax Fare is a great way to use your counter service credits.  We also really enjoy Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom.  Be Our Guest recently opened in the new Fantasyland area.  It is a counter service for lunch and it tends to fill up rather quickly, you will want to arrive early or be prepared to wait.  The menu is a little different than other traditional counter service locations and I love the fact that you sit down and someone else brings your food to you.  I recommend the Carved Turkey Sandwich and The Master's Cupcake... it's delicious.  We also love eating at Earl of Sandwich located at Downtown Disney.  The food is great, in fact a lot of off duty Cast Members frequent this sandwich shop.  

    The beverages at the counter service locations usually don't come with a refill unless it is a counter service location where you fill your own drink.  So at Be Our Guest Restaurant and Earl of Sandwich you would be able to get a refill, whereas at Fairfax Fare you would not be able to have one.  Keep in mind the drinks that come with the Disney Dining Plan are the large cup, so you might not need one.  You can always get free ice water at any counter service location at Walt Disney World.

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
