    Can you recommend some fun or different counter service options that are great at the resorts. We often do a character breakfast in the morning and then snack during the day but like to resort hop and visit different resorts for a meal in the evening.

    We like to dine at resorts too!  It's a great way to check out places to stay in the future, or experience places you'd never be able to visit otherwise.

    I'm guessing you are on the dining plan, so with that in mind the best counter service value at a resort is found at Coronado Springs in the Pepper Market.  This is almost like a table-service experience, as there is hosted seating and drink service.  You'll also find more upscale choices like steaks here, and I've always found the food to be very good.  However, you will have a gratuity to pay here, unlike all other quick service locations, so bear that in mind.

    Other places we've found good counter service food:

    Wilderness Lodge (fantastic sandwiches - I love the roast beef with blue cheese!)
    Port Orleans French Quarter Sassagoula Floatworks (cajun food and beignets, yum!)
    Animal Kingdom Lodge
    Boardwalk Bakery

    I would definitely avoid Caribbean Beach, as we've found that food court to always be a very crowded, very busy experience (though the food was fine).

    Happy feasting!
