Picture it: you just got off Pirates of the Caribbean, and you’ve got about an hour before you’re planning to meet up with some friends to ride Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. This is your chance to grab lunch, and you want something fast and delicious — where do you go?
There are quite a few Quick Service spots to choose from. Do you head to Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland? Or maybe place a Mobile Order at Pecos Bill Tall Take Inn and Cafe in Frontierland? We’ve got you covered.
Today, we’re sharing with you the three BEST Quick Service meals in Magic Kingdom, and believe us, these are yummy, satisfying meals you won’t want to miss.
1. Sweet-and-Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich
First, we’re going with an absolutely fantastic meal that’s sure to satisfy ALL of your tastebuds. To grab this meal, you’ll want to head over to Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square.
There, you’ll be able to order the Sweet-and-Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich served with House-made chips. If you’re looking for a meal that’s really serving up ALL kinds of awesome flavors, this is one for you! The chicken itself is battered and deep-fried (is there any other way to eat chicken, really?) and covered in a genuinely sweet-and-spicy sauce.
There is a bit of a kick here in terms of spice (so be aware), but it’s nicely balanced with the creamy slaw and the delicious, fresh waffle. The chips it comes with are also fantastic as they are house made. They’re thick and feel substantial, plus the saltiness also helps make all the flavors from the sandwich really pop!
This is a fan-favorite for a reason. Once you try it, you’ll find yourself drawn to get it over and over again. There’s always room for dessert, right? We say follow your “main meal” with a little dessert in the form of a Funnel Cake with powdered sugar, strawberries, and whipped cream from this same spot.
You’re in Disney so you might as well go ALL in!
2. Light Sandwich or Fish Feast
Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square is another great spot to head, especially if you’re a fan of seafood (though that’s not all that they serve!).
First, we’ve got an option for those looking for a somewhat lighter meal. The Doom Burger is on the plant-based menu which is a spot you may not be looking at too often when you go to order your food in Disney. This is a plant-based Crab Cake Sandwich topped with Red Onion and Cabbage Slaw served with French Fries
If you’re looking for something with a bit more meat, check out the Trio Platter! Can’t decide between shrimp, chicken, or fish? You won’t have to with this dish as it comes with all three!
You’ll get to enjoy fried shrimp, breaded chicken chicken nuggets, and battered fish, served with hushpuppies and a side of green beans and carrots, or french fries. This is sure to satisfy ALL of your fried food desires!
Could it get any better?!
3. Fajitas or a Bowl That’s Sure to Satisfy!
Next, we’re headed to another unique spot. While Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe does have some more “standard” theme park options, it’s also got some delicious meals that will make your taste buds sing! Some great choices here include the Fajita Platter (served with Pork Carnitas and Seasoned Chicken with Yellow Rice, Beans, Fajita Vegetables, Lettuce, Tomato, Sour Cream, Salsa and Flour Tortillas)…
…and the Chicken Rice Bowl, which features Yellow Rice topped with Seasoned Chicken, Black Beans, Lettuce, Tomato, Sour Cream, and Salsa.
These are both delicious options that will totally fill you up and can offer a bit of a break from the fried options you’d find elsewhere in the park.
To finish off your meal, you can grab some Mini Churros with chocolate sauce. Crunchy, bite-sized, sugary, and delicious — what’s not to love?
Tied for 3rd. Corn Dog Nuggets + Plastic Cheese
Next up is the iconic Quick Service restaurant, Casey’s Corner on the corner of Main Street, U.S.A. And, what is our go-to meal here? Corn Dog Nuggets Meal with French Fries and CHEEEEESE sauce, of course!
It truly is the perfect meal. Delicious fries, perfectly crunchy corn dog nuggets, and LOTS of cheese sauce to dunk everything in! We are eagerly awaiting the day the gates to corn dog heaven open once again. Believe us when we say we would absolutely love to be FIRST in line to grab these beauties.
Is it a top-3 list if you don’t at least have one honorable mention? We think not! We had to give a shout-out to Friar’s Nook and their Tots and Cheese Sauce!
While we’ve seen loaded tots options in the past (we sincerely miss the Buffalo Chicken Tots!), if you’re looking for something simple, these are a delicious little treat!
Well, that list has made us INCREDIBLY hungry! There really are so many delicious options all around Disney World, even at the Quick Service spots.
Now, we’d love to hear from you. What do you think is the very BEST meal you can get at a quick service spot in Magic Kingdom? Let us know in the comments below!
