One of the best parts of any Disney vacation is the food. Luckily, Disney offers a wide range of dining options.
Specifically, they have everything from signature dining to character meals to snacks on the go.
You’re even allowed to bring in your own food if you’re on a budget or have specific dietary needs. One of the most popular dining categories at Disney World is quick service.
In addition, many of these restaurants offer Mobile Ordering with a counter where guests order and pick up their food. Some have indoor and/or outdoor dining areas.
Certainly, the Magic Kingdom has lots of good options for quick service dining. Here’s a list of some of the best places for quick service meals in Magic Kingdom in each land.
1. Casey’s Corner (Main Street, U.S.A)
Casey’s Corner has All-American menu offerings that will especially appeal to nostalgic baseball fans. Their menu includes all-beef footlong hot dogs with a variety of toppings available.
My favorite is the Chicago dog served with pickles and diced tomato.
They also have French fries and corn dog nuggets. They also offer plant-based dogs with or without slaw. Wash it down with a frozen mint julep!
Like many quick service locations, Casey’s Corner offers Mobile Ordering for your convenience.
2. Tomorrowland Terrace (Tomorrowland)
Tomorrowland Terrace is a quick service restaurant that is currently playing host to Fireworks Dessert Parties at the Magic Kingdom.
As the Walt Disney World Resort continues its phased reopening, we may see the return of breakfast and lunch service at Tomorrowland Terrace.
3. The Lunching Pad (Tomorrowland)
The Lunching Pad is a great spot to grab a quick bite in the middle of Tomorrowland. They serve snacks like churros and Mickey pretzels all day. They also have a few entrée items on their menu like hot dogs or chicken strips.
There’s no indoor seating, and the outdoor seating is limited. However, there are several tables near the counter where you order and pick up your food. Mobile Ordering is available.
Check out the area between Space Mountain and Tomorrowland Speedway for additional seating. My kids love to watch the cars drive by along the track and the tables here offer a cool view.
4. Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café (Tomorrowland)
Cosmic Ray’s is situated across from Tomorrowland Speedway right on the border between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.
They have a spacious indoor dining area. It’s a great spot to escape the Central Florida elements while you have lunch. Duck inside to stay dry during an afternoon thunderstorm or to cool off in the air conditioning.
They’re open for lunch and dinner. You’ll find traditional theme park fare on the menu with a few twists. They serve burgers, fries, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, chicken strips and salads.
Like most quick service locations, they have a couple of plant-based options. For example, vegetarians can choose an impossible burger or Greek salad at Cosmic Ray’s.
Furthermore, the dining room has huge windows that offer a beautiful almost panoramic view of Cinderella Castle and the hub. Mobile Ordering is available at Cosmic Ray’s.
5. The Friar’s Nook (Fantasyland)
The Friar’s Nook is located near the carousel in Fantasyland. Inspired by “Robin Hood”, the Friar’s Nook serves breakfast sandwiches and tater tots smothered in gravy in the morning. For lunch and dinner, they offer traditional and plant-based bratwursts, all-beef hot dogs and macaroni & cheese.
The Friar’s Nook doesn’t have a dining area, so it’s perfect for lunch on the go.
Also, you’ll find Storybook Treats, which serves ice cream cones and cups. Mobile Ordering is also available.
6. Gaston’s Tavern (Fantasyland)
Gaston’s Tavern is a great spot to grab breakfast or a snack any time of the day.
They serve sandwiches, desserts and a variety of beverages, including hot and iced coffee. Their signature menu items are the humongous warm cinnamon roll and LeFou’s Brew (frozen apple juice topped with fruity foam).
However, Mobile Orders are not available for this eatery.
7. Pinocchio Village Haus (Fantasyland)
Pinocchio Village Haus is a true European mash-up with Bavarian-style architecture and decor and a mostly Italian-inspired menu.
They serve Caesar salads, breadsticks and a selection of flatbread pizzas. However, they also have a couple of Greek-inspired options including baklava and a chicken souvlaki flatbread.
Pinocchio Village Haus offers indoor and outdoor seating and is open for lunch and dinner.
It shares a building with It’s A Small World, and there are even a few tables situated beside windows that overlook the loading area and the beginning of the iconic boat ride. Mobile Ordering is also available.
8. Be Our Guest (Fantasyland)
In the past, Be Our Guest was open as a quick service restaurant during breakfast and lunch hours.
Despite its popularity (reservations were required), Be Our Guest no longer functions as a quick service location.
It is now only open for lunch and dinner with table service dining. It’s possible that Disney may bring quick service back to Be Our Guest in the future.
9. Columbia Harbour House (Liberty Square)
Columbia Harbour House is a great place to cool off or stay dry during hot or rainy central Florida weather. It’s located close to Haunted Mansion and it’s a pretty popular restaurant with good food.
They serve traditional New England fare like shrimp, hush puppies, New England clam chowder or a lobster roll.
One of the best things about Columbia Harbour House is its second floor dining room. In particular, it’s the perfect place to relax and take a break from the hustle and bustle of Disney World theme parks. Columbia Harbour House serves lunch and dinner and offers Mobile Ordering as well.
10. Liberty Square Market (Liberty Square)
If you’re in a hurry and want to avoid a long line at a quick-service restaurant, Liberty Square Market may be your best bet.
They serve turkey legs, hot dogs and a variety of pre-packaged snacks and fresh fruit. However, Mobile Orders are not available.
11. Sleepy Hollow Refreshments (Liberty Square)
Sleepy Hollow is a counter-service restaurant close to Cinderella Castle. They have a small outdoor seating area, but it’s a good place to grab a quick bit on the go.
One of my favorite things on their menu is the fresh fruit waffle sandwich.
This fan favorite is available during breakfast and throughout the day as a snack. They are open for breakfast and snacks and do offer Mobile Ordering.
12. Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café (Frontierland)
Pecos Bill is probably my family’s favorite place to eat at Magic Kingdom. Their Tex-Mex menu has great options for the whole family.
Specifically, I like to order the fajita platter. It’s delicious and the portions are large enough to share with my twin toddlers.
Stop by for lunch or dinner and you can also use Mobile Ordering at Pecos Bill.
13. Golden Oak Outpost (Frontierland)
Golden Oak Outpost is typically only open during peak times to accommodate larger crowds. They serve things like chicken strips and chili cheese fries. They also offer sweet tea slushies.
Golden Oak is open for lunch and dinner seasonally and Mobile Orders are not available.
14. Tortuga Tavern (Adventureland)
Like Golden Oak Outpost, Tortuga Tavern is only open during the busiest times of the calendar year. Located across from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, they have a pirate-themed menu.
Afterward, grab a Desert Pear Lemonade Pirate Slushy and a Teriyaki burger here.
Tortuga Tavern is open for lunch and dinner seasonally and Mobile Orders are not available.
