    Hello!!Planning a last minute surprise trip Nov28/dec3(ideas to tell them?)doing QS since this such short notice,Can you give your top 2 QS choices for each park? Be our guest QS for lunch?? How are Crowd Levels?

    Hi Nichole,

    Last minute trips are so much fun. You get all of the excitement with none of the waiting!  There are plenty of great quick service options, but I wouldn't rule out table service meals entirely.  You can often get into some great restaurants at the last minute as guests make cancellations.  In any case, here are my top picks for each park:

    • Magic Kingdom: Pecos Bill's, Cosmic Ray's.  You can also get last minute reservations at The Wave in the Contemporary and Kona Cafe in Polynesian.
    • Epcot: Sunshine Seasons, La Cantina de San Angel, Tangierine Cafe
    • Animal Kingdom: Flame Tree Barbecue, Yak & Yeti
    • Hollywood Studios: ABC Commissary, Studio Catering Company (Hollywood Studios has my least favorite counter service options)
    • Downtown Disney: Earl of Sandwich, Wolfgang Puck Express

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
