Best counter service at MK resorts?

We are doing MVMCP on 12/8 and plan to arrive at MK for 4 pm. We are thinking about an early counter service dinner in one of the MK resorts. We also plan to tour those resorts to see the Xmas decor. Which counter service do you recommend and why?

We really like the Contempo Cafe at the Contemporary for CS, but I think the Grand Floridian has better Christmas decorations.

Imo:

1. Captain Cook's for adult grilled cheese or chicken sandwich with a Dole Whip!
2. Contempo Cafe for flatbread and a cupcake.

But of all the MK resorts, GF is a must for decorations!

Our favorite resort CS is Captain Cooks at the Poly, followed closely by Roaring Forks at the WL.

I've stayed at CR and I really enjoyed the Conempo Cafe there. There should be something everyone will like!

Another vote for contempo cafe. service is fast and you can pocket a few mouse crispy treats for later. The decor is not as fabulous as the GF, but you got a great view out the windows of MK.

I rank them for food

Contempo Cafe
Captain Cooks
Gasparilla Grill

Grand Floridan has the best decorations IMO
