    We leave for WDW in 3 days and I'm confused about the dining plan. We get one table service, one quick service, and one snack per day......what exactly is a quick service? I need examples of restraunts that qualify for quick service. Thanks!

    Hi Matthew,

    I'm a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan so I'd be happy to help you with your question.  Quick service restaurants are found throughout the Disney theme parks, resorts, and shopping areas.  These are restaurants where you order your food at a counter and then select a table on your own.  By comparison, in table service restaurants a Disney host or hostess typically seats you and then a Cast Member brings your food to you after you order from the restaurant's menu.  Tipping is appropriate at table service restaurants, but not quick service restaurants.

    To give you some examples of quick service restaurants, here are a few of my favorites organized by their location:

    Min & Bill's Dockside Diner in Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Columbia Harbour House in the Magic Kingdom

    Roaring Fork in Disney's Wilderness Lodge

    Flame Tree BBQ in Disney's Animal Kingdom

    Capt. Cook's in Disney's Polynesian Resort

    in Epcot's Germany Pavilion

    There are so many wonderful choices when it comes to quick service restaurants.  There is a more comprehensive list here. 

    Have an amazing trip to Walt Disney World!
