If you are on a diet, let us begin with hopes that you don’t judge us for sharing this mouthwatering list of Counter Service Restaurants with you! While some say making a reservation at one of Disney’s Table Service Reservations is the only way to go, they obviously haven’t had the chance to order from these 12 delicious counter service hot spots! These are especially great meals for those spontaneous folks that might not want to make a reservation or stop for a full sit down meal in a restaurant. Instead, order at the counter of these restaurants, snag your food, and grab a table or eat on the move. Let’s get tasting!
12 – Sunshine Seasons @ Epcot Theme Park
While most guests plan on dining around World Showcase, we love to grab a bite at Sunshine Seasons found in The Land Pavilion in Future World. Variety alone is a great reason to get a meal here. There are great choices for everyone in your party, even the pickiest of eaters! You’ll find an Asian Noodle Shop, a Sandwiches Shop, a Grill Shop, a Soups & Salads Shop, and finally a Kids’ Zone Shop. Plus there are plenty of desserts at the Bakery Shop.
11 – Casey’s Corner @ Magic Kingdom Theme Park
What would a top counter service list at Disney World be without the beloved and timeless Casey’s Corner located on Main Street U.S.A.?! The American baseball favorites hit a home room with a fun menu with items like the Macaroni and Cheese Dog, Corn Dog Nuggets, and even Cracker Jack snacks. It’s not necessarily our favorite for a unique taste unlike any other – but rather a tradition that makes our visits at Magic Kingdom complete!
10 – The Daily Poutine @ Disney Springs – Town Center
Do you like French fries? We aren’t just talking about any, old, regular fries. We are talking about plump fries topped with overwhelmingly good toppings like gravy, cheese, beans, pork, mushroom sauce and more! Order a cup of potato goodness partnered with their Fireball Sangria and you’ll likely find yourself going back for seconds.
9 – B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co. @ Disney Springs – Marketplace
Huff, puff, and get ready to chow down on some sausage heaven! Conveniently located in the Marketplace on the bridge, B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co. let’s their artistry shine through in their unique ability to make sausage stand out. Try the 3 Little Pigs Samples for three awesome flavors on one plate!
8 – Flame Tree Barbecue @ Animal Kingdom Theme Park
A classic counter service spot at Animal Kingdom – Flame Tree Barbecue still pulls in our list of favorites! It’s no wonder Flame Tree continues to be a popular counter service destination with its great views and even better food. Between the barbecue selections of pork, turkey, ribs, and chicken – our only complaint here is the difficulty to select just one menu item!
7 – Cooks of Dublin @ Disney Springs – The Landing
Nestled next to the timeless Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant, Cooks of Dublin serves up Irish dishes quickly but not without the same taste of goodness you’ll find at Raglan Road. You can’t go wrong with the classic Fish and Chips here!
6 – Harambe Market @ Animal Kingdom Theme Park
If you are seeking an array of options with that Animal Kingdom punch of flavors, Harambe Market located in Africa boasts true African inspired food. Take a good look at the 4 different window menus to select your delicious and unique meal.
5 – D-Luxe Burger @ Disney Springs – Town Center
Prepare for a meal here with a stack of napkins, as these mouthwatering burgers makes this burger joint an easy YES for this list! With a spectacular line-up of burger variety (even a Veggie burger for our vegetarians!), you’ll leave D-Luxe Burger with a satisfied and full belly.
4 – La Catina de San Angel @ Epcot – Mexico Pavilion
These Mexican flavors may be served up counter service style, but many reviews agree that the taste tops that of the table service restaurant located across the way at San Angel Inn. La Catina de San Angel is a popular counter service destination in Epcot so be prepared to wait in line and possibly walk while eating since the beautiful seating is limited.
3 – The Polite Pig @ Disney Springs – Town Center
The pig might be polite, but we’ll just tell you bluntly… GO EAT HERE. Dare we say that The Polite Pig’s taste of barbecue tops that of Flame Tree Barbecue?! We’ll create a new hashtag… #PolitePigForTheWin.
2 – Morimoto Asia Street Food @ Disney Springs – The Landing
Morimoto Asia is one step ahead of Planet Hollywood Observatory, with their exterior patio outside of the restaurant now serving as a counter service location. Known as “Street Food”, this is the perfect place to grab a shaded spot under the covered patio or stroll along while snacking. Morimoto wins out as our number one because of their fresh sushi, bao tacos, noodles, and awesome snack options such as the Morimoto Baby Ribs! Despite our usual back seat view particularly of sushi, we will be visiting Morimoto time and time again in the future for their winning tastes.
1 – Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza @ Disney Springs – Town Center
We are slightly biased here as Blaze is an absolute favorite of ours! Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza takes pizza to a new level of fresh. Order an 11’’ artisanal pie and step down the line while instructing Cast Members what yummy toppings (over 40!) and sauces you’d like. The restaurant name holds true as the pizza is fired up fast and you’re on your way to enjoy it. Get a box to go, or better yet – enjoy their beautiful seating inside or outside next to the water.
