    Trying to eat quality food while maximizing time at park. Any suggestions? One option was Colombia Harbour House. Any others better?

    Columbia Harbor is a great place to eat good selection of food. If you want a burger Pecos Bills has the best fixings bar. If chicken is your choice cosmic rays is great. If you want full service the plaza has great sandwiches and Liberty tree rest has good food. Hot dogs Casey's corner

    try Be Our Guest for lunch. The reviews I have seen have been very positive. It is new and therefore popular. Waits can be a bit long unless you go early or late for lunch. It is a TS for dinner.

    I'm big on Cosmic Rays when I'm trying to get food fast. But it is just a quick service.

    We enjoy The Plaza. Last time I was there (October 2011), I had a wonderful chicken and strawberry salad.

    We too love Cosmic Ray's....it was the first meal we ever had at WDW, so it's kinda sentimental too. :)

    Fell in love with Liberty Tree a year and a half ago. Can't wait to eat there again in September (lunch ressies).

    Also love Tortuga Tavern. Right across from POTC.

    Our fave WDW meal was at Cinderella's Royal Table.

    Lots of good options at MK.

    I agree with all. Love Pecos fixin' bar. Columbia House was good. LTT, BOG, Cosmic Ray's etc. We have to have a Casey's every trip!

    The only one I would definitely stay away from was Tony's. Was not a fan at all.

    We loved Casey's Hot Dog's when we ate there last August. We also love Tony's Town Square, Liberty Tree Tavern and Peco's Bills. We will be trying Be Our Guest this June for lunch.

    LOVED Be Our Guest for lunch when we were there in February!! But be in line at 10am sharp! You'll get in quick. When we came out at around 11am, there was a line that you wouldn't believe!!

    Also like the Plaza for the sandwiches.

    We were planning that foe dinner but learned we needed reservations for it. We ate at Crystal Palace for breakfast for just the characters. The food there at least for breakfast wasok. Not sure if lunch was any better

    I have to second the above. Although I am not crazy about burgers I love to use the fixins bar to top off my taco salad. I prefer Pecos Bills to Columbia Harbor House. I have not been to Be Our Guest yet. We do have dinner reservations for October, but not sure I will eat there for lunch if the wait is too long.

    Next time I'll try this place. If we reserve dinner do we get to see Belle & The Beast?

    I am a food snob, but we love, love, love, Pecos Bills! Even on vacay I try to get my 5 servings of fruits and veggies so I load up the burger with all the fixins. They also have a chicken wrap that is HUGE!!! My adult daughter and I shared one a couple of years ago. My hubby loves Casey's Corner, but food choices are limited (pretty much hot dogs and nachos).

    We enjoyed Plaza many years ago, but we just can't seem to get away from Bills.

    The one restaurant I didn't care for was Tony's Town Square. Umimpressive.

    When we went in Jan for dinner, it was only the Beast, no Belle. He walked through the dining rooms, but didn't stop at any tables. After dinner you got to take your receipt to the "library" and get your picture taken with him.

    Yes I got one last week. You have to be persistant and check often. I had gotten one 180 days out but thought it might be too late for our 2 year old (8:35 pm). I checked often and finally got a 4:15 one.
