Thanks so much schumigirl!! Funny you should say if you we're close by and hungry- that's exactly my plan. I have a list of the CS places I think we'll like so we can just decide when we're hungry what is closest that we want to eat. On our trip to WDW I tried decoding ahead of time exactly where we'd eat ahead of time and it was pretty restrictive. I want a more relaxed trip this time while also trying to make sure we enjoy our meals.

I do think I'll call ahead with my concerns- that's great advice.

And I'm making our ressie for Finnigan's today!!

None of the places without any indoor seating were included in the polls. There are quite a few kiosk type of eateries with limited menus that are quite good.

Good to know, damo thanks! I only mentioned it not being in the poll because in the CS poll thread another place was specifically mentioned as being left off because of consistently bad reviews (Mel's I think??). So, it just made me wonder if something similar was going on with FireEater's. Thanks for the clarification as well as all of the effort on this thread!

That does bring up another thought though- is there a list somewhere of CS places with indoor seating? A place to beat the heat may be just as important as the food at some points during the day.

That does bring up another thought though- is there a list somewhere of CS places with indoor seating? A place to beat the heat may be just as important as the food at some points during the day.

At IOA: Croissant Moon, Circus McGurkus, Three Broomsticks, Thunder Falls, Blondie's, Captain America, Burger Digs, Cafe 4, Comic Strip Cafe

At Universal: Boulangerie, Fast Food Boulevard (Springfield), Louie's, Mel's, Monster's Cafe, Richter's, Schwabb's (ice cream)

I think that is it. The rest are either walk-up windows or sit down restaurants.

I would recommend Thunder Falls Terrace at IOA and Louie's at the Studios for counter service. Both have indoor seating and the a/c is usually blowing hard in both.

Richter's in the Studios is also nice and cool and fine if you just feel like a simple burger or chicken sandwich.

Burger Digs is attached to the Jurassic Discovery Discovery Centre. You may not want to eat there but the Centre is a great place to cool down as well.

I'll second that! this is a great place to hang for 30 minutes and its right at the halfway of the park. Just go down stairs and its cooler there.

Panda Express at CityWalk. I just love their orange chicken! Not really unique since you cab get panda express anywhere in orlando but it's a great affordable meal after you leave the parks.
