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. I was going to list only the top 3 at each park, but some restaurants at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot in positions 4 and 5 had many votes and should be noted as a possibility for you to consider. Positions 4 and higher at Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios had significantly less votes than positions 1 – 3. I listed all of the Quick Service locations in each park and they are ranked according to most popular with most votes.

The top 3 have bigger print and you can click on each one, which will bring you to Disney’s site for that restaurant where you can see the location of the restaurant, look at the menus for any of the meals they offer, see if it’s indoor or outdoor seating, if they accept the Disney Dining Plan, etc. Keep in mind that some restaurants listed at the bottom of each list may not have had any votes at all, but I wanted to make sure you know all of the locations (with meals versus snacks and beverages only) and how they ranked.

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.
