I like Hakuna Matata as the menu changes from the burgers/pizza/chips found elsewhere.

Toad Hall has always been good and the double fish and chips easily does 2.

Fuente del Oro does nice fajitas too and big portions

Always liked Hakuna Matata for their savory rice (am vegie) but this week when we got it it was just rice not veg
Love Col Hathi's sitting by the water edge and foods ok as well.
But this i would choose to leave the park and head for Earl of Sandwich

Another vote for Hakuna Matata. Delicious! Not open all the time though.

Both, if you look in the restaurant sticky you can see the menus that I took in April/May and then again in Nov/Dec as they change twice a year and you see dishes changed and prices go up 50cts here and there

CCB will be going back to a c/s instead c/s with characters so there menu will no doubt go back to what it was.

Lucky Nugget changed from being a buffet to a c/s but served to you at table

Etc etc

I don't think anyone will know until you get there to be honest. Apart from the Videopolis and the Chalet au Marionette, we struggled to find counter service restaurants which were open on our midweek trip in June - its the worst I've ever seen the main park for closed counter service restaurants (oh, sorry, Caseys was open, but I don't like the food there at all).

Of course ... for the first time I could really see and read the panels going round the room, the booths were lit up, the tree branches/vine strands etc looked undusty and moved in the "breeze" and the birds were fully animated

We loved Fuente del Oro in June - had two CS meals there (fell in love with the churros - yum!) - great value, lots of food and nice and hot, not lukewarm!

We have done Caseys and Hakuna before too but I would always head for Fuente if I had the choice. Plan to try it again in Nov if it is open.... Who knows what will be open and when - it's very hit and miss which is a little frustrating at times!
