What is the difference between quick service and table service at Disney?

Disney categorizes its dining experiences into quick service and table service restaurants.

Table service restaurants typically require an advanced dining reservation (ADR). You’ll be seated at a table and a server may take your order and deliver your food and beverages to your table.

At select table service restaurants, meals may be served via a buffet or family-style (where platters of food are delivered to your table).

Table service restaurants typically have higher menu price points, larger portion sizes and indoor dining areas as well as unique decor or theming. These meals are served at a more relaxed pace and guests should plan for them to take a bit more time. 

Quick service restaurants have lower price points on their menus and offer quests a more expedient dining experience. They can be food trucks, fast casual or counter service restaurants.

Most locations have seating available, sometimes indoors and sometimes outdoors. Many also offer mobile ordering. Quick service restaurants are a great option to fuel your theme park touring. 

Does Disney Springs have quick service?

Yes, Disney Springs has a TON of quick service places! Here are the top ten of what I think are the best quick service options:

1. Earl of Sandwich

This eatery specializes in hot sandwiches, pizza bread, soups, wraps and salads. But perhaps their most famous menu item is the Holiday Turkey sandwich.

Inspired by Thanksgiving leftovers, this bad boy includes cornbread stuffing, turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce. 

Pro-tip for parents: there’s a splash pad just outside Earl of Sandwich. We love to snag one of the outdoor tables and let the kids play while we enjoy our fancy sandwiches.

Just remember to pack a dry change of clothes for them!

This upscale barbecue joint is all stainless steel, smoked meats and southern-gastro-pub sides. They offer sandwiches, salads and platters. My favorite menu items were the Roasted Beets and Crispy Brussel Sprouts.

My kids were dazzled by the novelty of the whole peeled baby carrots served with ranch alongside their chicken tenders or mac and cheese!

Do Disney Quick Service meals come with a drink?

Generally speaking, drinks are sold separately at quick service locations. The exception is with kids meals, many of which do include a beverage like bottled water or milk, a juice box or small fountain drink.

Historically, Disney Dining Plan quick service entitlements did include a beverage. However, dining plans have been suspended since the 2020 closures of Disney parks. 

In any case, it’s best to verify all menu information and pricing on Disney’s website or in the My Disney Experience app.

Be Our Guest Magic Kingdom

Can you make a reservation for quick service at Disney?

Nope! Disney quick service locations don’t require or even offer dining reservations.

One notable exception from years past was Be Our Guest in Magic Kingdom, which formerly required an ADR for breakfast or lunch service.

The popular restaurant located in Fantasyland now operates as a table service restaurant only, and it’s open for lunch and dinner. 

Do you tip quick service in Disney World?

Tipping isn’t required or expected at most quick service dining locations in the Disney parks. At Disney Springs, you may see a line on your receipt to add a tip at certain quick service locations.

Other locations might have a tip jar. However, most quick service restaurants have a service model that doesn’t require tipping.
