    I'm in the process of planning our Counter Service/Quick Service lunch/dinner meals for our trip in February. I'm an adventurous eater, and my sweet hubby is not. He'll eat chicken tenders, pizza, plain grilled chicken sandwiches, plain turkey sandwiches, plain burgers, plain steak.

    I'm looking for suggestions for quick service restaurants in MK, HS, and Epcot. Can you offer me a thumbs up or down on any of these, or make additional suggestions?

    Magic Kingdom (lunch)
    Be Our Guest (I really, really want to try this QS. Hoping DH can get the turkey baguette without dijon.)
    Pinocchio's
    Columbia Harbour House


    Epcot (lunch)
    Sunshine Seasons
    Katsura Grill (I would like to try this and he likes white rice, but I'm not sure if he would attempt the teriyaki chicken)


    Hollywood Studios (lunch and/or dinner)
    Studio Cateering Company
    Backlot Express
    Starring Rolls
    (I might talk everyone into cutting this day short and heading downtown to Earl of Sandwich)

    Thanks for your suggestions and opinions!

    I don't know about many of those places, but in MK I think you would do really well at Cosmic Rays. It's actually one of our favorite QS places in MK, and usually the one we gravitate to.

    The American Pavilion is right next to Japan, where he should be able to find something he likes. One of you could bring your food to the other pavilion, or meet in the middle and eat outside. Though, my VERY picky DBF loves the teriyaki chicken in Japan...so maybe your significant other will too!

    Magic Kingdom (lunch)
    Be Our Guest (I really, really want to try this QS. Hoping DH can get the turkey baguette without dijon.) --- I'd try for this one. Unless their premade, i dont see why you couldnt get the sanwich without the dijon.
    Pinocchio's
    Columbia Harbour House
    I'd eat at cosmic rays in MK. Pretty good variety of food.


    Epcot (lunch)
    Sunshine Seasons
    Katsura Grill (I would like to try this and he likes white rice, but I'm not sure if he would attempt the teriyaki chicken) ---teryaki chicken is very plain and basic, he wouldnt even eat that? :confused: Lol. You know what, try the bakery in france. they have DELISH ham & cheese sandwiches. theyre VERY plain, but oh so tasty! for a QS credit you can get a sanwich (HUGE btw!) plus a pastry and drink. They also have croissant sandwiches. Love this place!


    Hollywood Studios (lunch and/or dinner)
    Studio Cateering Company
    Backlot Express ---- its good, but not exceptional as a pp had mentioned.
    Starring Rolls ----do you really want another sandwich? Lol. Theyre pretty good thou.
    (I might talk everyone into cutting this day short and heading downtown to Earl of Sandwich) ---yet another sandwich. lol. Are you on the DP? If so, i highly recommend WGPE (marketplace location). By far the best meals ive ever had. Meatloaf, pizza, chicken fingers, spagetti & meatballs. ALL INCREDIBLE and a great value on the DP (cause it aint cheap!). For EoS I would pay OOP thou. I wouldnt use the DP.

    We're on the dining plan! Thanks for the suggestions so far. As for ham and cheese, he is not a fan of ham, or cheese added to a sandwich.

    So funny that you'd comment on 'yet another sandwich' as sometimes I don't know how he does it eating such little variety. He's a great guy, though, and I love him lots, so I want to make sure our bases are coved and everyone is happy.


    I think at Epcot well do the Katsura grill and like figment suggested have DH get something at Liberty and come over to the garden to eat. We have arrangements to eat with Chip and Dale for dinner that night so we just need the lunch there :)

    Going to go for the turkey at Be Our Guest in MK too. I think I might have to write a dining report after this one for sure!

    Edited to add that we ate at Cosmic Rays last time and while it was okay, I'd like to try different options on my 2nd ever trip to WDW :)

    Oh wow. LMAO! ok, good luck then. :lmao: Seriously thou, since your on the DP you MUST check out Wolfgang Puck Express (by the lego store) at DTD. Its a phenominal deal on the DP! Each meal with dessert and drink will cost you almost $30 depending on what you get. At EoS, its pretty cheap. So its not a good deal on the DP. I'd pay cash. Sandwiches are good, but not "WOW OMG" good. All in all, the food at WGPE is amazing and consistently delish each and every time. Its a great place even for picky eaters. My son loved their pizza, chicken fingers (adult ones), fries, mashed potatoe, heck we both loved everything there! My fave so far is the meatloaf. And their cheesecake is to die for.

    im glad that you clarified that, i just assumed he's the worst hubby in the world because he's a picky eater. :lmao: :rotfl: Ok enough jokes. Disney is very accomodating to picky eaters, there are tons like your DH, so dont worry. On many occasions i've asked servers to put the sauce on the side if my son didnt find it particularly appealing. I think your DH will do ok. :thumbsup2

    Good idea on both accounts! :thumbsup2

    Just wanted to mention that at Starring Rolls the sandwiches are premade so your hubby can't get them plain. Might be better to skip that one

    Suggest you look at the menu for Plaza Restaurant in MK also, might find something he will like. Does he like hotdogs?..Casey's Corner also at MK. Can't go wrong with Sunshine Seasons at Epcot either, lot's of choices.

    I have to admit, I'm a rather picky eater, but I love the chicken tenders you can get at most CS places--CHH, Cosmic Ray's, Pecos Bill's at MK, Liberty Inn and Electric Umbrella at Epcot, Restaurantosaurus at AK, and Backlot Express and Rosie's All American Cafe in DHS. Pizza is the same at most of the CS restaurants that serves it (and it's fine, not bad but not the best pizza ever), but the flatbreads some places (Pinnocchio's) are serving are NOT the same and picky eaters might not like them. I don't order sandwiches anywhere, because pretty much all the CS eateries premake theirs, and so I can't get mine customized (for me, without the cheese), so if your husband has sandwich preferences, I'd avoid CS sandwiches (just FYI, I have not tried EoS, so I'm not sure whether or not they premake their sandwiches). Plain burgers can happen at all CS burgers that sell burgers--just ask for the offensive toppings removed (and check the burger when you get it to make sure all the toppings were removed); since I don't eat cheese on burgers ever, I get "plain" hamburgers all the time at Disney, and I've never had a problem getting toppings removed from burgers.
    Enjoy your trip!

    Most places will leave off anything you ask them to. Like cheese or dijon. Sometimes the people preparing your food automatically make the sandwich the usual way. Which is a pain but you can get it any way you want it most places. I always ask for hamburger, no cheese. No honey mustard etc. I am very picky too and believe me I eat plenty! :rotfl2: Sunshine Seasons has some good choices. The pork chop minus the sauce and 1/2 chicken both with mash potato. Never tried Pinocchio or CHH. At studios I get the italian sandwich from Catalina Eddies ( i think) w/o the pesto stuff. I use mustard.At WPE I get the rotissere chicken and fries. The fries are shoestring style and yummy. He will be fine! :goodvibes

    Oh! In EPCOT at the beginning of WS if you takea right heading towards Canada. There is a place that used to be Mcdonalds. Next to a small restroom area. I can't think of its name. It is small with limited bench seats but they have a crispy fried chix sandwich. It comes with cheese and some kind of gross sauce but DS and I both got it plain. It was great and BIG. The chix was too big for the roll. :)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping me narrow our choices, everyone!

    I think for sure we're going to try BoG on our MK day, and head to Sunshine Seasons or Japan/US for lunch at Epcot depending on where in the park we are that day.

    For HS I'm kind of hoping we'll be finished before lunchtime and can return to Poly for capt cooks. I'm going to shuffle around my ADR s so we have the character breakfast at Ohana on our HS day so we'll have a good, hardy breakfast that day and hopefully not need to eat a meal at HS at all since the reviews are generally less than stellar.

    Can't wait to write my dining report! Just 102 days to go now!

    Just be aware that the chicken terriyaki comes with pink ginger on top of it. Will that freak him out? it is chicken thigh meat also. I'm not a fan of it so I usually eat a few bites and give the rest to my DH. I scarf the rice in the sauce though!

    Mexico is a good choice, the kids meal quesadilla is plain, chips and cheese or salsa, and the pizza at via napoli looks yummy.

    I think the burgers at electric umbrella are disgusting and greasy so I stay away from them.

    This was a really good sandwich and fries. We loved it. We might have missed it but DDIL saw they had jalepeno poppers or something equally gross. :rotfl2: So we took a closer look and found this sandwich! :)

    this sounds so familiar-however it's my ds not dh-he will literally eat anything :rotfl2:

    ds does not eat sandwiches-he eats what he calls "bread sandwiches" which is 2 slices of bread together-with no filling! :rotfl:

    While I may not be quite as picky as your DH, I'm not too far off. Sounds like you are set for MK. For Epcot I don't care for Sunshine Seasons. I stare and stare at the menu and options willing it to be something I like and to no avail. I also don't like the Teriyaki Chicken in Japan because of the dark meat. Liberty Inn in America is palatable, Electric Umbrella not so much. If I have to do counter service in Epcot, I'll usually go to Mexico's La Cantina. I'm not a fan of it either. Once again the meat is just off-putting to me.

    For DHS counter service I prefer Rosie's All American Cafe. The pastries are Starring Rolls are great, but the Turkey sandwich has a very high bread to filling ratio.
