    We will be visiting Disney for the FIRST time this May. I have a few nicer dinner plans, but for the most part I plan to eat counter service meals. Do most counter serve have indoor or outdoor seating? I hope to escape the heat while eating.

    Hi Brandy,

    I think you will be pleasantly surprised by how much there is to do indoors.  All the parks have large indoor counter service restaurants.  I'll warn you that finding a table can be hard during peak times.  You will be less frustrated if you can eat earlier or later than you normally do.  My favorite indoor counter service restaurants are; Sunshine Season Food Fair, Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, and the Electric Umbrella Restaurant.

    You'll find that many attractions and shows are either indoors or have some type of shield from the sun.  Most of the waiting areas for the thrill rides are also indoors. 

    I hope you have a wonderful time and if any other questions come up feel free to ask.
