Monorail to resort counter service for lunch

Looking for tips and ideas for leaving Magic Kingdom to go to a counter service lunch at one of the resorts accessible by monorail. We were thinking of Gasparilla Island Grill at the Grand Floridian. How long would this likely take? Which counter service at which resort would you chose?

What is your group like?

With kids I would do Contempo Cafe at the Contemporary. You can watch the monorail go through the building- my kids think that is the best! It's also an easy walk back to MK (and faster than taking monorail around). It's also located closest to the monorail stop so would likely be the quickest time away from parks if that was a factor.

Gasparillas is nice b/c you can take boat there and then Monorail back to MK. It has some nice outdoor tables and is far more relaxing than Contempo cafe (i mean... Unless you consider a monorail running close by relaxing...)

I am not familiar with offerings at Poly.

Another vote for Contempo Café...there's a good selection of food and it's good. Plus I always enjoy looking around the shops in the Contemporary which are right nearby and if there are kids in your party the arcade is also there.
