    We will be at the Magic Kingdom on 5/8. Be our Guest is already booked up and I don't want to spend the money on the character lunch at Crystal Palace. It will be 2 adults and a 17 year old. What is your recommendation for lunch? Counter service?

    Welcome Lisa! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I’m sorry to hear you couldn’t make a reservation for Be Our Guest restaurant. Don’t be sad, there are many other great places to eat at Magic Kingdom Park.
     If you prefer a quick-service restaurant type, my family’s favorite one is Columbia Harbour House, located at Liberty Square, right in front of Haunted Mansion. Their Grilled Salmon is delicious. Their menu offers different salads, fish and shrimp dishes. Located in Fantasyland, Pinocchio Village Haus is another very good place to eat and relax. You will find there Italian favorites such as awesome flatbread pizzas and pasta dishes.
    I suggest you also consider Liberty Tree Tavern, a traditional family-style restaurant. New England Pot Roast is always my first choice. If you like Thanksgiving style food, this is the right place for you. Reservations can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit.
    Hope this information helps your planning. Come back again if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
