Victoria’s Top Ten QUICK SERVICE restaurants at WDW!

I love to eat good food. For me, there is no better cuisine in the world than at Walt Disney World!  The variety you get and quality they always bring to the table astounds me every time. But I do not have the financial resources to eat at a Full Service restaurant every time I go to Walt Disney World. Here is a list I’ve whipped up of my top ten Quick Service locations on property!

  1. Hollywood Scoops, Disney’s Hollywood Studios: I may be a little biased because I used to work here, but everything about Hollywood Scoops puts me in mind of classic Hollywood. From the decor to the costumes of the Cast Members, this little shop is a must stop for a hot day. My go-to snack is the Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich: two heaping scoops of ice cream (your choice of flavour!) smushed between two delicious chocolate chip cookies! This is a snack credit treat for those of you on the dining plan, and I love grabbing one right before I go see the Beauty and the Beast stage show or Fantasmic.
  2. Blaze Pizza, Disney Springs: This isn’t a Disney-specific restaurant, it’s a must for me at Disney Springs. I LOVE the updates to the Disney Springs area, and I don’t know about you, but all that shopping makes me HUNGRY! If you’ve never been to Blaze Pizza, it’s basically like Subway, but on a PIZZA! You can pick your own toppings, and it’s not on a per-topping basis, it’s all the same price! Blaze Pizzas always taste fresh, without breaking the bank.
  3. Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, Epcot: Hon hon hon! J’adore le dessert! I also adore the France Pavilion! Les Halles has a scrumptious variety of snacks and sweets. Their menu includes sandwiches, pastries, and literally an entire baguette. My favourite is the Framboise, a raspberry mousse tart! The desserts also count as a snack credit! YUM!
  4. Pecos Bill’s Tall-Tale Inn and Cafe, Magic Kingdom: FREE GUACAMOLE. Need I say more? Pecos Bill’s has a wide selection of great tex-mex dishes, with an even greater toppings bar! You can load your tacos with guac, salsa, cheese, onions, and mushrooms to your heart’s desire. Although one of the busiest restaurants in the park, it’s a must-do. I would recommend going around 3:30 in the afternoon, between meal rushes!
  5. Pinocchio’s Village Haus, Magic Kingdom: My favourite part about Pinocchio’s Village Haus is the view! In a back corner of the dining area, guests can look over into the loading area for the classic attraction, It’s a Small World. My favourite menu item is the Kid’s pepperoni pizza flatbread meal, which comes with a decent slice of pizza, a small drink, and a choice of 2 of the following: grapes, fries, applesauce, yogurt, or a cookie, all for less than 10$!
  6. Sleepy Hollow, Magic Kingdom: Nestled in a quaint building in Liberty Square, this is my go-to place for that perfect nighttime entertainment snack. From sweet to savoury, it offers a spicy chicken and waffle, a pretzel dog, and the classic theme park treat, funnel cakes! I always get the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich, because it makes me feel healthier than I actually am!
  7. Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafes, Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Although I am a HUGE fan of the Full Service Yak and Yeti restaurant, I don’t always have time to commit to a sit-down meal. The Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafes still bring the amazing flavours and aromas and the full restaurant. If I’m just looking for a snack, I’ll grab a side of chicken fried rice! The Local Food Cafes are accompanied with a relaxing sitting area complete with fountains.
  8. Yorkshire County Fish Shop, Epcot: Being from the East Coast of Canada, fish and chips are a staple in our household. The F+C from the Yorkshire County Fish Shop are served hot and fresh, just like they would be back home! We love celebrating our British roots with this meal. Behind the Fish Shop is a beautiful terrace with a stunning view of World Showcase Lagoon, the perfect place to enjoy a meal with the whole family!
  9. Artist’s Palette, Saratoga Springs Resort: Although my family can’t afford to stay at a deluxe resort, we love to eat their delicacies! Artist’s Palette at the Saratoga Springs Resort offers guests comforting sandwiches and flatbreads, that are perfect for dipping in soup. Kids can sketch their favourite Disney character as they wait for their meal, and the gift shop is close by for some after-dinner shopping!
  10. Ample Hills Creamery, Boardwalk Resort: A fairly new addition to the Boardwalk, the Ample Hills Creamery is a ice cream shop that originated in Brooklyn. They boast an impressive selection of fantastic flavours, such as Peppermint Patty, Butter Pecan Brittle, and Strawberries and Cream. I love getting a scoop in a M&M  cone, and sitting on the Boardwalk, just eating my ice cream and watching the boats go by!
