Counter Service in MK

First time staying off site, and often we used to do EMH and leave by lunch to eat elsewhere and chill. But we may stay all day. So I'm looking for counter service suggestions and are the portions large enough to share?

Columbia Harbour House is great & Pinocchio Village Haus...Not sure if you're a big eater, but you could definetly split some of their meals between two people who are not extremely hungry

+1 for both those suggestions! Harbor House is one of our favorite meals. And I love eating at Pinocchio sitting by the window and waving to people leaving on Its a Small World. Cosmic Rays is another good option because they have a large variety, and as far as portions go, they offer a few items that are huge. They have a chicken and ribs combo that can easily feed 2 people...

Also, don't forget to consider fighting the line for a Be Our Guest lunch. Everyone days the food is great.

We were just there last week and loved the new restaurant Be Our Guest. The line was long to get in but went quickly. The food was really good for a counter service and I could have easily split with someone. My son did eat all of his steak sandwich but did not finish his fries. We split a couple deserts afterwards and they were very good. We also like Cosmic Rays counter service and I have split my meal there.

Peco Bills is also good. They have a topping bar and the burgers are pretty good. Can get very crowded though.

BOG, Harbour House and Pecos Bill's are our favs. The Ribs & Chicken combo at Cosmic Rays is an ok option but we like the atmosphere at the other places better. Pecos Bills DOES get crowded but the wait for BOG is worth it.

We like Colombia Harbor House (always sit upstairs...so much better, love that you can get grilled salmon and unadulterated salmon) and at Cosmic Ray's sit out on the patio facing the castle (usually get half chicken or grilled chicken sandwhich, adding mushrooms from the fixins bar by the burger station). Nice to get out of that building. Love BOG, but wouldn't categorize food big enough to share.

Casey's Corner is delicious and the food is plentiful. Honestly, one hot dog and fries from the place stuffs me for the entire day. Split the dog, save some cash, enjoy the vittles.

The ribs and chicken combo at Cosmic Rays mentioned by a few posters, is now only available after 4 PM for dinner. In fact, ribs are only available for dinner.
My favorite is Columbia Harbour House followed closely by Pecos Bill and Cosmic Rays
Enjoy

I think the waffle sandwiches at Sleepy Hollow are a good deal. My daughter and shared the one with fruit and Nutella and still couldn't finish it.
