    I've stayed at the Polynesian and Grand Floridian and would like to try a new hotel, but the quick service meals are important to me. Of the Dolphin, Swan, Wilderness Lodge, Contemporary, Yacht Club, and Beach Club, which have the best quick service?

    Hi, Laura!

    As a mom to 9 and 12 year olds, I totally understand your need for great Quick Service options at your resort!

    Of your choices, my favorite Quick Service location is the Contempo Cafe at the Contemporary.  It is located on the 4th floor of the resort right in the middle of the action.  As you eat, you  can watch the monorail as it zips right through the building!    The Contempo Cafe serves all your Quick Service favorites such as burgers, flatbreads, salads, and even some specialty sandwiches.  Their House Chips are really good, make sure to get some to munch on!

    My second choice is the Roaring Fork at the Wilderness Lodge.  It is not as large as the Contempo Cafe, but they have the same basic choices.  I do like that they have a "pasta of the day" and "flatbread of the day."  The BBQ Chicken flatbread is absolutely delicious!  When we dine here, we like to take our trays of food and dine pool side (the pool is just a few steps away).

    The Yacht and Beach Clubs just have a small grab and go location.  Though nice with some daily specials, probably not what you are looking for.   The Swan and Dolphin have a "buffeteria" style location that has a pretty good menu, but not your standard Quick Service location (and also not an official Disney Resort.) 

    If you want to see the menus for any of the locations, go to and you will find all the menus for any restaurant on property.  I hope this helps. Good luck selecting the resort for your next magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
