Walt Disney World’s Top Ranked Theme Park Quick Service Restaurants

Quick Service meal at Animal Kingdom's Flame Tree Barbecue

There are so many different palates that one person, or a handful of people, to properly rank Quick Service (QS) restaurants would not be beneficial for anyone to make an informed decision. Our Facebook group, All Access Disney Group, voted for their favorite Quick Service restaurants in each Walt Disney World theme park. This list will help you choose where to eat based on hundreds of people’s opinions on their go-to places for good quick service food.

The polls were based on locations that serve meals for lunch. Some locations have one or two meal items, but a meal is a meal! Locations with snacks and/or drinks only are not on this list. I listed all of the Quick Service locations in each park and they are ranked according to most popular with most votes.

The top 4 have bigger print and you can click on each one, which will bring you to Disney’s site. You’ll be able to see details about that restaurant including the location of the restaurant, menus, indoor or outdoor seating, accepts the Disney Dining Plan, etc.

Final thoughts/Tip: if leaving a park to go back to your Disney resort hotel to rest, swim, etc., instead of eating at a QS before you leave the park, consider waiting and grab something at the quick service at your hotel. Also consider eating at the resort QS before you leave the resort to head to a park for any meal including breakfast.

There are significantly more options available to choose from at the resort QS restaurants. Plus, you can use your refillable mug at the resort instead of buying a drink in the parks. You would be surprised with how many more options there are at the resort QS restaurants for the many different palates and ages in your vacation party. I find the food to be better quality, as well.
