If there’s one thing you will find at the Walt Disney World Resort, it’s delicious food. From Mickey Mouse-shaped treats to iconic meals, you’ll never go hungry.

You’ll find many different types of dining during your Walt Disney World vacation. Throughout the Disney Parks and Resorts, you can find snacks, quick service, table service, and signature fine dining experiences.

What is Quick Service Dining?

Quick service dining refers to restaurants that offer counter service, allowing Guests to place an order and pick it up at a receiving counter. Many restaurants offer indoor or outdoor seating where you can enjoy your meal.

Maybe the largest appeal of quick service restaurants at Walt Disney World is that they don’t require advanced dining reservations. Guests can stop by at any time for a meal or snack without needing to plan in advance.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
