    Which are the most popular quick service dining restaurants, and can you dine there if you do not have a ticket to that park for that day?

    Hi Erin!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is a great question but difficult question to answer as there are so many quick service dining options! Here is a quick snapshot of the popular ones (and my family's favorite pit stops):

    Magic Kingdom:
    *Be Our Guest (only quick service for breakfast and lunch; reservations strongly recommended) 
    *Columbia Harbour House
    *Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe
    *Casey's Corner

    *Sunshine Seasons
    *Tangierine Cafe
    *La Cantina de San Angel

    Disney's Animal Kingdom
    *Flame Tree Barbecue
    *Harambe Market
    *Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes

    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    *ABC Commissary
    *Rosie's All-American Café

    I would highly recommend that you visit this page: Disney Dining - Counter Service, where you can view the recommended restaurants, their locations as well as their menus. To answer the second part of your question, in order to dine within any restaurant in a Disney Park, valid admission is required. Keep in mind that there are many great quick service restaurants within the Disney Resort Hotels as well as Disney Springs which wouldn't require any admission fees.

    It has been a real pleasure assisting you! If there are any other questions you may have, please feel free to send them my way!

    Happy Planning!
