A while back, I wrote a post about how counter service restaurants in Walt Disney World can help you expand your horizons, and I do think that I did expand my horizons on our trip. I tried Tangierine Cafe, Yakitori House, Earl of Sandwich, and more! Reviews of all these counter service restaurants are coming in the future, but for now, I'm gearing up for my January trip. Which means I'm back to thinking about counter service and trying new things. I'd like to try some more new counter service restaurants on this trip, but I really don't know what's the best.
In Magic Kingdom, Pecos Bill's is always our fallback, but I have eaten at Cosmic Ray's as well. I know that Magic Kingdom isn't known for it's food variety, and I'm not even sure that I want to give up our semi-traditional visit to Pecos Bill's (I really do love it there). Then again, who couldn't use a change now and again? As for Epcot, I've tried Electric Umbrella, but I'm looking for something a little... more than that. I thought Tangierine Cafe and Yakitori House were both okay, and I'm not a fan of the Lotus Blossom Cafe. But even if I skip all those, there are so many other choices in Epcot! It's so hard to choose!
I have even less counter service experience in Hollywood Studios. I've honestly, as far as I can remember, only eaten at Backlot Express because there's really nowhere to eat when it's a million degrees in August! I'm definitely up for food suggestions here, since January will hopefully make outdoor seating more desirable. As for Animal Kingdom, I don't recall ever eating counter service here, and I'm not sure that we'll even be in Animal Kingdom for a meal on our upcoming trip. But I'm open to suggestions to eat here as well!
So it's up to you, readers, to help me out here. What are your favorite counter service restaurants in the parks? In the resorts? In Downtown Disney? Anywhere! I'm open to any and all suggestions, so I can make a mental list of places to try. Let me know your favorites in a comment, on Twitter (@discollegeblog), or on Facebook!
