When you get the Dining plan or Quick Service dining plan you want to make sure you are getting a good value for your money. But cost can’t be the only factor. You will want to make sure you are checking out the menus to verify that you are choosing a restaurant menu that will appeal to your party. This isn’t a comprehensive list but some suggestions for great eats!
Be Our Guest for lunch is a fantastic choice based on the location, amazing atmosphere and the food. The food is similar to the dinner offerings but all at one quick service dining credit. Located in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland you will be immersed in the Beast’s castle and can choose from three different rooms to sit in. This restaurant is like no other. First of all it does require reservations for the quick service. Next you order solely from a kiosk and then get your “rose” and find a spot to sit. Your food will be delivered to your table. You can check out my lunch review here.
Wolfgang Puck Express located in Disney Springs is another amazing choice for a quick service meal, lunch or dinner. Similar to Be Our Guest, you will have your food delivered to your table. This food is pretty amazing, we recommend the mac and cheese and the bacon wrapped meatloaf. Check out this review for more information!

Sunshine Season in the Land pavilion in Epcot is a delicious option with seasonal foods grown right there in the Land Pavilion! Plus the amazing strawberry shortcake is always worth getting. This location is also ideal if you need to fuel up before waiting in line for Soarin’ Around the World. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner so any time the mood strikes you can check out this quick service restaurant. This restaurant has some amazing choices like Oak grilled salmon, slow roasted pork chops and Mongolian beef.
Columbia Harbour House located in Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom is a fantastic option for a healthier lunch or dinner with many options. Some of the most popular options are the Lobster Roll, chicken pot pie, Lighthouse sandwich, clam chowder, and broccoli peppercorn salad. You cannot beat the location and people watching if you head up to the second floor seating.
Flame Tree Barbecue in the Discovery Island area of Animal Kingdom is probably one of the best quick services values. You can get more than just barbeque here though, some choices are ½ a chicken, ribs & chicken combo, smoked turkey sandwich, full slab of ribs, and roasted chicken salad.

Landscape of Flavors is located at the Art of Animation resort is an awesome choice with unique and adventurous flavors. You can get things like curry chicken, beef stirfry, create your own pasta or pizza, burgers, soup, and salad. Yep, that is a lot of choices in one restaurant!
Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café in Frontierland in Magic Kingdom is another fantastic choice. If you love tex-mex food this is the place for you. It is similar to Qdoba or Chipotle where you can get a rice bowl, fajitas, or burritos and then step up to the fixins bar to doctor up your dinner.
Capt. Cook’s in the Polynesian Village Resort is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can get the famous Tonga Toast for breakfast or the pulled pork nachos for lunch and dinner. This location is great whether you are staying at the Polynesian or just visiting from the other monorail resorts or want a break for the parks. The menu has variety and is a pretty good value.
Tangerine Café located in the Morocco pavilion in Epcot is a cool choice for lunch or dinner. They have many unique offerings such as Mediterranean chicken wrap, shawarma chicken or lamb platter, lamb wrap, and kefta sandwich. Plenty to choose from for the adventurous palate.
