Quick Service Recommendations in all Parks!

We are down to 10 days before we leave for our 5n/6d trip! We are so excited . We are also on the regular dining plan. Anyways, we will be staying at the Contemporary and will be using their Contempo Cafe for a few QS meals of course due to convenience. I've heard their cupcakes are great, so I'll be sneaking in a few snack credits for those. We will be spending 2.5 days in Magic Kingdom. We love MK and have two toddlers (4/2). We will then be spending one day at each of the other parks. The toddlers are pretty picky eaters. I just wanted to know everyone's favorite quick service meals in the parks. Thanks in advance!

MK - Columbia Harbour House or Cosmic Rays or Diamond Horseshoe
EP - Not really a good one here! We usually eat at ABC Commissary for seating
AK - Flame Tree BBQ
HS - Sunshine Seasons or Yorkshire County Fish Shop
DTD - Wolfgang Puck Express

In MK we always go to Pecos Bill's...great toppings bar! If you happen to eat there during the afternoon parade you can see the floats pass right by the seating area. My son still talks about seeing the parade from there!

Was just there last week and my best meal of any CS was hands down Be Our Guest. Utilized the FP+ booking with our magic bands and pre ordered but would have been able to change anything pre ordered upon arrival. Real plates and silverware, food delivered to your table, all for the same cost as the other CS choices.

At EPCOT we usually eat Sunshine Seasons, AK either Flame Tree BBQ or Yak & Yeti CS and HS we usually grab stuff at the little section of stands by Tower Of Terror or for a few $$ more we have Sci Fi

MK- Diamond Horseshoe Saloon (if open), Columbia Harbor House, Cosmic Ray's, and for snacks, Aloha Isle.

EPCOT- Sunshine Seasons is the only QS worth eating at in FW, IMHO. WS (which it sounds like you may want to avoid with picky eaters) would be Tangerine Café (Morocco), La Cantina de San Angel (Mexico), and les Halles (France).

AK- Yak and Yeti or Flame Tree BBQ.

HS- Let's face it, HS is probably the worst park for food. I'd go with Fairfax Fare as the best of the worst.

Remember you'll get a dessert with each QS meal too, so you can get a cupcake with the meal. We got a Monsters Inc. one and it was excellent.

As far as the Parks, I definitely recommend Be Our Guest (lunch only). Get in line early and you'll get in. We were told a 45 minute wait but the line moves quick, probably only took 20 minutes.

LOL! So true! And I'll be there for 2 meals during my trip (just how it worked out). We'll do Fairfax Fare for dinner before Fantasmic. The other day we plan to hit Pizza Planet--mostly because my 4-year-old is Toy Story obsessed.
