Quick Service count = 1 & 2; Caribbean Beach Resort lunch

When we got the PIN for free QSDP I was concerned that QSDP would mean only burgers and fries every meal. But we were really surprised by the variety we could come up with during those five days. That said...

For lunch, as soon as we arrived at the World, we ate at the Old Port Royal food court and we both had the Caribbean burger from the hamburger station!

The Caribbean burger had a pineapple-bbq sauce which was sweet and not spicy - and fried plantains, fried string onions, tomato and lettuce as toppings – incredibly flavorful, filling and messy!

We had fries and got a bottle of water each. And used our free resort refillable mugs for sodas (so we could drink the water later in the park!).

For dessert, I got a chocolate cupcake with vanilla icing and DSis got the dirt cake (which she didn’t eat but took back to the room to put in the fridge for later).

Here are some pics:

Snack credits 1 & 2 - Main Street Ice Cream

At 4:30, already hot from the crowded Magic Kingdom and having drunk our bottles of water, we decided to get floats in the Main Street ice cream shop with snack credits – coke for me and root beer for DSis with Eddy’s vanilla ice cream. Lots of earning ears cast members – two of them were needed to take the two floats from one counter to another and they didn’t know to distinguish between the Coke and root beer, so we were left to figure it out by taste – of course we got each other’s!



it was gooooooooood

Dinner at Columbia Harbor House



After a spin on Big Thunder Mountain, we then went for dinner at Columbia Harbor House, where we had read on DIS that it is a great place to relax and have a nice non burger and fries meal.

DSis had the fried shrimp and the chocolate cake with French fries and a bottle of water. The cake is rich and dark chocolate. Perhaps too dark and rich for some but not for DSis!

I had the fish and chicken nuggets with apple slices and apple crisp and a bottle of water and a cup of ice – this made the water go further. I liked the batter on the fish but I can't get over Disney chicken nuggets - they have such a distinctive flavor to me - brings back memories to bite into one. The apple crisp was sweet and I ended up just eating about 1/2 of it.

We enjoyed the a/c and the peoplewatcher (what I named that section of the dining room where you are sitting above the walkway between Fantasyland and Liberty Square). We sat there for about an hour – this quick service plan did bring us opportunities to sit and relax in air conditioning – maybe even more relaxing than a table service meal would have been.

Yeah - thanks! I had a hard time finding quick service reviews before I left for the World. This was my first time with a Disney Dining Plan and I wasn't sure what to expect. QSDP is great!

free refill mug with QSDP



We picked up our mugs at Caribbean Beach Resort as soon as we arrived. They had blue, pink or black handles and lids. I found the free mug super convenient for getting a soda with meals at the resort - but could have also used it for coffee, hot chocolate or tea. Was great using the refillable mug and then getting a bottle of water with a meal - to use for later in the park!

Thanks!

And yes, the burger was amazing! I had heard that Disney burgers are bigger and better than typical fast food - and they are! The CMs are so helpful and even though they were busy they still explained to me what was on the isle burger - I told her she had me at Pineapple-BBQ sauce.

Later in the trip we also had the deluxe burger at Pecos Bills - which had two huge onion rings on it and while delicious - was second to the Caribbean Isle Burger.

I had my doubts, but enjoyed the QSDP and I bet you will too. You can imagine the coke floats are a warm coffee drink to get a better idea of your experience in December!

I'm so glad you are enjoying it! I wish I were still there!

I agree with the other posters! I was so excited to find a review of the QSDP! We have always done the regular dining plan and are trying the QSDP in July. Can't wait to read more!
