Everyone is always looking to save money in one way or another, especially when visiting the happiest place on Earth.
One of the biggest ways to save money is by eating meals at quick service restaurants rather than at a table service. Now don’t get me wrong, table services are like no other, but what many people may not realize is how many quick service restaurants are offered (and how fantastic they are!).
Here are my top quick service experiences in Magic Kingdom:
1 – Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe.
Located in Tomorrowland, this quick service restaurant offers a variety of food for anyone of any age! An idea of what they typically offer is things like burgers (including veggie burgers), salads, ribs, grilled chicken sandwich, and so on. On top of the wide variety, they also have a topping bar so you can add whatever you like (and how ever much you like) onto your burger or sandwich! They also have the entertaining Sonny Eclipse himself performing throughout the day!
2 – Columbia Harbour House.
Located in Liberty Square, this quick service is one of my top picks because it is so different. If you like seafood, this is a must for you! Don’t worry, even if you are not a fan of seafood, they also offer chicken, salads, and even vegetarian items. Columbia Harbour House is a great place to escape the heat (and crowds) at Magic Kingdom.
3 – Pinocchio Village Haus
Located in Fantasyland, Pinocchio Village Haus offers a selection of different foods, such as salads, soups, and their famous flatbreads! If your lucky enough, grab a seat by the windows and you can enjoy your food while looking out at It’s A Small World! (A great view!)
4 – Sleepy Hollow Inn
Although this quick service does not have indoor and air conditioned seating, it is still a must try for food. Although they do not have much variety, their waffle sandwiches are delicious and like no other! These sandwiches are freshly made and can be filled with items like strawberries, blueberries, whipped cream, Nutella, and for the meat lovers, there is even a sweet and spicy chicken waffle sandwich or a ham and cheese waffle sandwich! Sleepy Hollow Inn is located in Liberty Square.
5 – Gaston’s Tavern
This quick service is relatively new, but very popular. Gaston’s Tavern offers a roasted pork shank, hummus and chips, and various desserts, including the famous LeFou’s Brew, which is frozen apple juice with toasted marshmallow topping! If you stop by Gaston’s Tavern, locating in New Fantasyland, at the right time, you may even have the chance to meet Gaston himself!
Magic Kingdom offers several more quick services, which are all delicious and all have their own unique menus and experiences. Quick service meals are a great way to relax, enjoy great food, and save money! Next time you visit the happiest place on Earth, check out one of these delicious restaurants!
