    Hi, I would like to know which are the best quick services places in each park? thanks


    Honestly, "best" may mean best for your budget, best for big portions, best taste...I'll do my best to let you know what my version of "best" means for each of my picks below:

    Magic Kingdom: Cosmic Ray's. I think it's tops because of its large portions that two can split (get the ribs & chicken combo and don't skip the green beans), plenty of seating, and the animatronic entertainment that will delight the under-5 set. But beware: what can captivate your kid can be rather loud to an adult...

    Epcot: Sunshine Seasons. Plenty of indoor seating, especially in the heat of summer, would make this place #1 on my list but the sheer variety of food for a family of picky eaters can save your sanity. From salads to "blue-plate special" entrees, the fact that the food is practically cooked before your eyes makes me feel better about eating pseudo-fast food. Don't miss the dessert case.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios: I either get a mile-high sandwich from Starring Rolls or the Greek Salad from Studio Catering.  I prefer Studio Catering's plethora of seating over crowded Backlot Express.  But if you're visiting in pleasant weather, an umbrella table nestled below the traffic of Hollywood Blvd makes Starring Rolls a wonderful respite.

    Animal Kingdom: Flame Tree Barbecue's portions, taste, and outside canopy of trees for a seating setting second to none in the parks makes it my recommention. However, if you're visiting in the heat of summer, especially after an early afternoon rain, that tree canopy can turn into a sauna. Opt for Pizzafari and order one of its Italian Sandwiches instead of boring pizza. Then snag a table in one of its back rooms for some A/C, art, and quiet.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
