    I will be traveling to disney 9/17-9/23. I will be traveling with my two year old daughter. I was wondering if you could tell me what are some of the good quick service resturants to eat and, and the same goes for table service meals.

    You've asked about one of my favorite Walt Disney World topics: dining!  I'm happy to offer some personal opinions as to the best counter and table service locations.

    When it comes to counter service, Downtown Disney is home to the top two restaurants.  There, you'll find Wolfgang Puck Express and Earl of Sandwich.  Both offer scrumptious items.  Flame Tree BBQ at Animal Kingdom is also a great choice when it comes to a quick service meal.  I've also found Starring Rolls at Hollywood Studios to be quite tasty - though they only serve pastries and light meals like sandwiches and fruit.  Cosmic Ray's at the Magic Kingdom is also a popular spot that serves a wide variety of burgers, wraps, nuggets and rotisserie chicken meals.  If you're at Epcot, the various stations at Sunshine Seasons are sure to serve something that sounds good.

    While you won't go wrong with any of those counter service locations, many of the table service restaurants are even better!  I polled my family and here is a listing of our personal favorites:

    -Teppan Edo in Japan at Epcot
    -Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge
    - 'Ohana at the Polynesian
    - Garden Grill at Epcot
    - 50's Prime Time Cafe at Hollywood Studios
    - Restaurant Marrakesh in Epcot

    We're also partial to Le Cellier and Jiko but since you'll be traveling alone with a two-year-old we stuck to our more casual faves.  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. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists.
