    What time do the counter service restaurants in the parks typically open for lunch? Specifically Pecos Bills, Flametree BBQ, and Backlot Express. I found hours for sit down , but not counter service. Thanks for your help in planning my 9/08 trip!

    The hours of the counter service restaurants in the theme parks vary considerably. The restaurants you mention open at the following times:

    Pecos Bill's in the Magic Kingdom: 10:00 a.m.
    Flametree BBQ in the Animal Kingdom: 10:00 a.m.
    Backlot Express in Disney's Hollywood Studios: 11:30 a.m.

    I found the hours for the counter service restaurants on the website To find more counter service hours, such this site under the name of each restaurant.

    Happy dining!
