Walt Disney World Quick Service

Backlot Express in Hollywood Studios

Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner. Disney’s Quick Service restaurants have you covered! Whether you’re in the parks, at your resort or in Disney Springs, you will find a Quick Service restaurant with just what you’re looking for.

What is a Quick Service restaurant?

Just as it sounds. Quick…Service. Also referred to as Counter Service, these are locations that have an order with a cashier and a pick-up at the counter. Don’t let that fool you. This is not your run-of-the-mill, fast-food fare. Walt Disney World has some of the best “quick service” food I’ve ever eaten.

Walt Disney World has just about 200 Quick Service locations. Some are considered fast-casual, some might be a just a snack, another might be a place to get a tasty treat, and others might be your resort’s food court. Quick Service locations offer a little bit of everything depending on where you are.

Quick Service by Park

Please Note: These lists do not include the carts throughout the parks where you can get mickey bars, pretzels, churros, spring rolls or other miscellaneous food carts.

Quick Service by Resort

If you are staying at Disney Resort, you might eat the majority of your meals there. Or at least breakfast. If you were paying close attention to the Quick Service locations in the parks, you should have noticed that there isn’t a lot of breakfast options. Depending on what type of Disney Resort you are staying at, that resort might only have Quick Service options. BUT all resorts do have Quick Service locations and they all serve breakfast, lunch & dinner.

Disney Dining Webpage

If you are on the Disney Dining website or on the My Disney Experience app, you can filter the dining results to show what is at your resort. This way you can check out what your options are so you can plan accordingly. Or even just to get an idea of how much you can expect to pay for each meal.

Mobile Order

A great feature that Disney has adapted to is Mobile Order. Currently, Mobile Order is a way to order food from a Quick Service location. This allows you to skip waiting in line and order your food on your phone. Then you tap “I’m Here, Prepare my order” once you arrive (just just before if you really don’t want to wait). Keep in mind that during peak meal times the pick-up times may not be right away. Sometimes placing your order a few hours in advance is the way to go if you’re adamant about eating somewhere in particular.

Epcot International Festivals

Even though the food booths in Epcot aren’t listed as Quick Service locations, they most definitely are. Depending on the time of year you’re visiting Walt Disney World, there will be countless food booths with different food offerings. These food booths are walk-up ordering only and the easiest way to eat and drink around the world is to purchase a Disney gift card wristlet. This keeps you on budget and with quick easy access you don’t have to fumble around with your wallet and cards.

And that’s about it when it comes to Quick Service. These are going to be your more “cost efficient’ dining options. Remember to share, as I mentioned in the Table Service post, sometimes ordering an adult meal is cheaper than ordering 2 kids meals. Or if you’re not that hungry, as an adult you can order a kids meal. Or, if you’re in Epcot and attempting to eat and drink at as many food booths as possible, share!
