    Hi! I will be running my 1st half marathon this Jan! What quick service restaurant among the resorts (I won't be able to make it to the parks till after the race) do you suggest for carb loading the day before the race? Thanks so much!

    Welcome back, Nicole! 

    I'm happy to hear from you again! There are several counter service options I recommend that will allow you to get your carb-loading done and not have to step inside a theme park. Many Walt Disney World® Resort Hotels offer create-your-own-pasta bars. 

    Here are my top suggestions: 

    • Riverside Mill Food Court at Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside

    • Landscape of Flavors at Disney's Art of Animation Resort

    • Gasparilla Grill at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

    In addition, there are several resorts that offer entree pasta dishes.

    • Contempo Cafe at Disney's Contemporary Resort  - dinner menu only

    • All food courts at the All-Star Resorts and Disney's Pop Century Resort

    • Pizza & Pasta Shop at the Old Port Royale Food Court in Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort 

    I would love to know where you are staying, Nicole, this way I can provide you with options that may be close to your resort. With parking policies changing, and many guests being turned away when driving to resort food courts, I can help you navigate transportation to these options. Just let me know.
