With a plethora of restaurant choices at Walt Disney World, there is something to suit every palate. If you’re a fan of the typical burger and fries fare one normally finds at a theme park, you won’t be disappointed. There are several options offering all-American meals that please the masses, but for our purposes this week, I’m looking at variety and plenty of it! So, for your dining pleasure, here are three quick service options that offer more than average options.
1. Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
With more than five different “shops” to choose from for lunch and dinner, there’s sure to be something for almost everyone at this resort restaurant. From pasta to Tandoori chicken to a barbecued pork sandwich (my personal favorite at this stop) and more—I’ve not yet heard a bad review. The restaurant also offers a large and varied breakfast menu featuring French toast, a breakfast burger and chocolate chip pancakes! One of my favorite things about Landscape of Flavors may be the desserts! Delicious baked yummies and gelato are the perfect end to your meal.
Get Food Wise: Take a look around the restaurant before choosing your seat. There are four different areas lightly themed after the four sections of the resort, Lion King, Cars, Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid.
2. Be Our Guest
I really was trying to avoid including this one because it’s so darn taxing to get in here for lunch, but after our fantastic meal here on our most recent trip, I just had to make it one of my personal top three. First, the ambience is fantastic. Whether you’re dining in the West Wing, the ballroom or the Rose Gallery, each room is meticulously designed with Disney’s signature attention to detail. Even more fun is the new technology in use. MagicBands and enchanted roses laid on your table “talk” to the dishes to let them know you’re ready for lunch. Within minutes, your meal arrives on a cart pushed by costumed wait staff and is served on china. Not too shabby for a quick service stop. Even if we look past all the show, the food itself is delicious. Between seven of us, we ordered almost everything on the menu and split it all between our plates. Not a thing was wasted except for what we just couldn’t eat because there was so much food.
Get Food Wise: The waits at Be Our Guest for lunch are long. Looong. So long that they bring out water and umbrellas for those in line. Consider getting in line for a later lunch since some families send a runner to get in line not long after rope drop. Also note that not everyone has to be in line together, so take turns while the rest of the party experiences nearby attractions.
3. Sunshine Seasons
Situated just outside Soarin’ is one of Epcot’s dining gems! Similar to Landscape of Flavors, there are a few different counters from which to order featuring great sandwiches, Asian fare, soups, salads and more. Sunshine Seasons has always been a crowd pleaser for my crew, especially the kids who enjoyed the more “grown-up” kids’ meal options. Again, the crown jewel here may be the mouth-watering desserts. Try the strawberry shortcake!
Get Food Wise: Sunshine Seasons also offers a great breakfast, so consider starting your Epcot day here!
