    We will be going in September 2014 and have a QS dining plan. Any spots that you can't miss that you'd recommend? The dining plan was free so I'm more worried about taste than value.

    MK: I love the pork shank at Gaston's. Big enough to feed two and we also get a LaFou's Brew.

    What exactly IS a pork shank? I've seen this on the menu but wasn't sure what I would get LOL! It is a plate of pork? A piece of pork? How do you eat it, with a fork and knife or is it finger food?

    Agree with PP who mentioned POR's pasta station. POR is our favorite food court if you're in the area!

    MK - Columbia Harbor House

    DHS - Have yet to find a notable QS location! We like the cupcakes at Starring Rolls, but not much else stands out here to me IMHO. We did Pizza Planet last trip and weren't fans - standard pizza you find all over the parks, and very hard to find a place to sit (very crowded).

    Epcot - Yorkshire Fish & Chips in UK and the QS in Mexico (the name escapes me) - best nachos!

    AK - Flame Tree! Surprisingly good BBQ, especially the ribs. Tons of places to sit and beautiful scenery on the water with birds all around!

    DTD - Agree with WPE and we're also anxious to try the new QS at HOB.

    Epcot - Sunshine Seasons - so many choices - you can even do a soup and a dessert and just use snack credits for that.

    MK - Cosmic Rays is our family fave

    HS - none of them are great

    AK - Flame Tree

    DTD - Wolfgang Express is my fave for QS - his food is always great and you get the same high level at the express as you do in the Cafe. Chinois Chox Salad, Chix pot pie and butternut squash soup are our faves! If you go to DTD for Bfast - the Wolfgang at Marketplace has corn flakefrench toast - yum!

    DTD - If we have FD we like to go to WPE, if not we go to the Earl.

    EPCOT - For DD she has to eat at the Katsuri Grill, she loves the Tempura Shrimp Udon. Sunshine Seasons is great. We have to snack at the French pastry place.

    MK - we like to have lunch at BoG and supper at CHH.

    AK - we eat at Flame Tree.

    By default at DHS we eat at the Backlot Express but we love to get snacks at Starring Rolls!!!

    DTD, Wolfgang Puck Express, possibly the best QS on property for taste, value, and service

    MK, we usually stick to Cosmic Ray's for the variety, but my DS and I had lunch at BOG last Jan, and it was great. Added it to my must do more often list.

    Epcot, so many great choices, I think you said you are going in Sept, if you are there for F&WF skip the QS and enjoy what all the booths have to offer. Otherwise, Tangerine and Sunshine Seasons are great choices

    AK, Flame Tree BBQ, my nephew also enjoys Restaurantosaurous (I think I butchered that spelling) something about a Mac and Cheese Hot Dog that changed his life, lol

    DHS, we usually go to Backlot Express, for lack of a favorite place, but Starring Rolls deserves a mention....my DH is not a fan of sandwiches as a meal on vacation, but he can be persuaded to hit Starring Rolls for breakfast so I can have my cupcake fix..

    My first Disney trip we only did QS meals. Another fan here of Flame Tree BBQ at AK, and Pecos Bill at MK. I can't remember where we ate at Epcot, I know it was towards the entrance, and we ate at Pizza Planet at HS, but I wasn't impressed.
