    Thanks for all your help! I am learning so much from all of the 'moms'! My husband and I are traveling in January and in an attempt to save money are planning on almost all counter service meals- What are your favorite counter service in each of the parks?

    Let's start at Animal Kingdom because Flame Tree Barbecue there is very good.  The menu offers a wide variety to choose from and every time we've ever eaten there each member of the family has been delighted with the taste.  I also love that the tables are surrounded by tropical trees and foliage, down near the water.  It's a very relaxing way to enjoy a meal, and escape from the hustle of the park for a bit.

    At Epcot, Sunshine Seasons is a safe bet for a good meal.  Much like the food court at a mall, Sunshine Seasons offers a ton of different meal options from Asian to sandwiches to rotisserie chicken and mashed potatoes.  There is also a lot of seating available and because it is located in the Land pavilion it's very convenient to do the relaxing boat ride after lunch.

    I, personally, am not thrilled with the counter service options available at Hollywood Studios, but I have enjoyed Studio Catering Co.   The Greek Salad is my choice, should you decide to go.

    At the Magic Kingdom my husband adores Pecos Bill's because he swears by the infamous topping bar they have there.  I had the chicken wrap there last year though and wasn't all that impressed.  I prefer the Columbia Harbour House, especially when you sit upstairs where it's quiet! 

    Hope that helps!

I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language.
