In my opinion the BEST use of a counter service credit is tied.
BOG and WPE Marketplace.

Runners up:
Flametree, Sunshine Seasons, La Cantina, Columbia Harbor House

If you are worried about making sure you get the most bang for your buck, that is one of the main reasons I would never PAY for any dining plan because you can eat cheaper OOP. But if you got the dining plan free who cares? It didn't cost you anything, so eat the food you like.

Make sure to take a little time and walk through all the rooms.

French Onion Soup $5.29 was suprised to see it as a snack on the DPlan!

No...Wolfgang Puck Express is a counter service.
Very good in my opinion.

Thanks everyone. Definitely want to try Wolfgang Puck! I don't really know what I mean by "worth it" either. We aren't huge eaters, but since I am regretting my purchase of the DDP, I want too take advantage of it, if that makes sense to anyone. I want to make the most of it. We are doing lots of character meals for ts and that is what we wanted so we are looking forward to it. We will probably share our cs meals when possible and hopefully try lots of food.

You want Wolfgang Puck EXPRESS at Marketplace, not the one that is attached to the table service location at West side.

Highly highly Recommend Be Our Guest at Magic Kingdom. Food is wonderful and it's a complete dining experience, as it's beautifully themed. It's also kind if cool how they use the Rose to GPS-type locate you and bring you your food. It's should be noted that the children's menu is a little different and might be problematic for parents with pickier eaters. You won't find the basic chicken tenders and hot dogs there.

At Epcot, The Land pavilion has a great variety. We always eat there. It's also nice if you can time your Soarin' fast passes for either before or after lunch

No help with Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom...we did sit down when we were there last.

Disney has definitely improved their quick-service over the last few years. The variety is wonderful and you definitely aren't stuck eating hamburger and hotdogs all the time!

It is worth it if you like what you are getting. Deep huh. The Be our Guest lunch is definitely worth it. WPE too.

Well, I was able to get the fast pass for BOG lunch, so I really need to decide if I want that or to cancel the dinner there. I've heard that the lunch there is better for most than the dinner. The menu seems ok to me, but I am really not picky with food. That also frees up a TS credit that we could use on a grown up meal and not one selected just for our kids. I think my kids will share a lot of their CS lunches anyway because they are light eaters, so that frees up some of the CS credits for possible breakfasts. With the potential of not having a fridge, I don't think we'll have as many breakfasts in the room. Thanks for the restaurant suggestions.
