What to Order at Every Quick Service Restaurant in Magic Kingdom

There are lots of different options for meals, snacks, and treats in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, from DOLE Whips to corn dogs, and lobster rolls to ice cream sundaes.

With so many different options to choose from, how do you know what you should buy? Don’t worry — we’ve got your back.

We made a list of our favorite orders at each of the 22 different Quick Service restaurants in Magic Kingdom, so you’ll know what to get before you even get to the park.

Quick Service restaurants are the ones that do NOT use reservations, so we’re not including restaurants like Be Our Guest, Liberty Tree Tavern, or Cinderella’s Royal Table in this list. But any restaurant where you can go up to the counter and order your food (or use Mobile Order) qualifies!

We picked out the most popular items and those that our team loves the most from these spots. If you’ve got a different favorite, we’d love for you to let us know in the comments!

And now without further ado, here is what we think you should order at every Magic Kingdom Quick Service restaurant.

Aloha Isle

Aloha Isle is a snack spot located in Adventureland. This place is known for one very important classic Disney World snack: the DOLE Whip. In case you’re not familiar with this delicious snack, it’s pineapple-flavored soft-serve (vegan!) ice cream. You can actually get it in a variety of flavors (selection can vary at the locations where DOLE Whip is served), swirled with different flavors, or as a float with pineapple juice or another drink.

Our favorite way to eat DOLE Whip from here is as the Tropical Serenade float. This float is Coconut Soft-Serve piled high on top of Pineapple-Orange-Guava Juice. It’s garnished with an Upside-down Pineapple Cake Pop.

This float was one of our favorites from the 50th Anniversary Celebration, and we were thrilled when Cast Members confirmed it would be sticking around for the long haul!

Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies

Over in Tomorrowland, you might stop by Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies if you’re looking for a refreshing treat on a hot day.

Auntie Gravity’s

Sometimes this spot has tasty special offerings, like the Brownie Sundae! This treat features vanilla soft-serve ice cream served over a brownie with hot fudge or strawberry topping.

Casey’s Corner

You can’t miss Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom. It’s right at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., close to the Hub.

Casey’s Corner

In our opinion, this place is a must-visit if you’re spending the day in Magic Kingdom. Its menu has hot dogs, corn dogs, fries, and other theme park food, but we recommend (nay, insist) that you buy the Corn Dog Nuggets.

Corn Dog Nuggets

These nuggets are little golden pieces of joy. They’re basically mini corn dogs, and the meal is served with your choice of a mandarin orange or fries. We also highly recommend getting cheese sauce on the side to dip them in.

Cheshire Cafe

The Cheshire Cafe in Fantasyland is located near the Mad Tea Cups ride.

Cheshire Cafe

Honestly, this spot doesn’t have a whole lot of food options. It’s mostly a good place to stop if you just want a quick treat or a cold drink. One treat that is almost always available, though, is the Cheshire Cat Tail.

Cheshire Cat Tail

This treat is basically a chocolate pastry, but its theme is really fun; it’s a cute treat, and we think it’s pretty tasty!

Columbia Harbour House

Columbia Harbour House is located in Liberty Square, near Haunted Mansion. This place is another one that’s high on our list of favorite restaurants in the Magic Kingdom.

Columbia Harbour House

If you’re stopping to eat here, we think you should get…anything at all on the menu. Really, almost everything we’ve had here has been tasty, but one of our favorite items is the Lobster Roll (because it’s a classic).

Lobster Roll

The Lobster Roll is chilled lobster in a mayonnaise sauce, served on a New England-style bun. It’s simple, filling, and absolutely delicious. Plus, it’s served with fries.

Cool Ship

The Cool Ship Cooling Station is in Tomorrowland, and it’s basically just a refreshments stand.

Cool Ship

You can get sodas and water here, as well as popcorn, Cinnamon-glazed nuts, and cotton candy! You can also choose from a few ice cream options.

The Mickey Bar at Magic Kingdom

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café is a delightful experience in Tomorrowland. What makes this Quick Service restaurant amazing is both the large selection of seating inside with air conditioning and the iconic performer, Sonny Eclipse, who will serenade you while you eat. Have you ever had dinner and an alien concert for a show? Now you can.

Sonny Eclipse

Sorry, Sonny, but most of the things on the menu here are just theme park classics like chicken tenders and burgers. Everything tastes fine and can be really filling. But not a whole lot of it really blows our minds. This place is great for kids or picky eaters, though!

It’s abundant… and theme park-y.

One thing that we really did enjoy here was the Spicy Chicken Sandwich, which had a pickle slaw on top. The chicken was delicious, and there was actually a little kick from the breading that we loved.

Spicy Chicken Sandwich

The Friar’s Nook

The Friar’s Nook is located in Fantasyland, and it’s got some really tasty snacks on the menu.

Friar’s Nook

One of the best menu items is their tater tots, which you can get smothered in sausage gravy in the morning or covered with creamy bacon mac ‘n’ cheese in the afternoons.

Gravy Tots

We’ve loved all kinds of tots here, and one of our favorites (that’s not currently on the menu) was the Buffalo Chicken Tots.

Friar’s Nook Buffalo Chicken Tots

In their place, we’d recommend the Creamy Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Tots.

Gaston’s Tavern

Gaston’s Tavern is also located in Fantasyland, just down the provincial path from Be Our Guest Restaurant.

Gaston’s Tavern

Although we really enjoy a good cup of LeFou’s Brew (frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with passion fruit-mango foam), we have to say our top menu choice here is the Warm Cinnamon Roll.

We do love Gaston’s Tavern Cinnamon Roll though!

This isn’t just any cinnamon roll — it’s a Gaston-sized roll. It’s VERY large, and it’s served warm, covered in sugary icing.

We’ll be honest, we usually ask for even more icing on the side because can cinnamon rolls ever have enough icing?

Golden Oak Outpost

The Golden Oak Outpost is a snack stand in Frontierland, and it doesn’t have a hugely diverse menu usually.

Golden Oak Outpost

Sometimes this spot has a Caramel-Stuffed Pretzel (usually during the holidays), and we would definitely get that if it’s available on the menu. But if it’s not there, we’d recommend the Loaded Chicken Strips topped with cheese sauce, bacon, and green onions.

Liberty Square Market

The Liberty Square Market is a snack stop in Liberty Square (as you might have guessed). There’s a covered counter where you can order your eats and drinks, and then there’s plenty of seating in a courtyard area, most of which is covered with umbrellas.

Liberty Square Market

There’s not a lot on the menu, but our top pick for this spot would probably be a simple Frozen Slushy. Seasonal flavors come in and out but they are refreshing on a hot day!

Frozen Slush

The Lunching Pad

The Lunching Pad can be found in Tomorrowland, right under the PeopleMover and Astro Orbiter attractions.

The Lunching Pad

This spot has a few different fun snacks, but our top pick is the Cream Cheese Warm Stuffed Pretzel.

Stuffed Soft Pretzel

This is exactly what it sounds like: a warm pretzel that’s been filled with sweet cream cheese. And it’s delicious. It makes a great shareable snack, and we love that it’s not the most basic theme park food. You can always get a normal pretzel, but how often are they stuffed with cream cheese?

Main Street Bakery

The Main Street Bakery is actually now a Starbucks location in the Magic Kingdom. You can get all your normal Starbucks drinks here, like coffee, frappuccinos, and refreshers, but there are a few Disney-specific snacks as well.

Main Street Bakery

Historically, we’ve loved the Mickey or Minnie-shaped Cinnamon Rolls for $6.29, which is a giant cinnamon roll (with ears of course) that’s drizzled with icing.

Minnie-shaped Cinnamon Roll

But recently we had one here that was a little stale and just not very tasty in general. So you might be better off with just a coffee or a fun seasonal drink.

Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

If you mosey on down to Frontierland, you might run into Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, which is an Old West Saloon-style restaurant that has Western and Mexican-inspired food.

Pecos Bill

This place has a really fun back story, and you can learn about it on the decor inside! The food isn’t always the most exciting. It’s pretty simple, with some options for salads, tacos, or nachos, and our favorite is probably the Taco Trio for $10.99.

Taco Trio

You get three tacos with different fillings, plus all kinds of toppings that you can add yourself. In our opinion, these were tasty and filling — and it doesn’t hurt that there’s plenty of indoor, air-conditioned seating at this location.

Pinocchio Village Haus

Back in Fantasyland, you can head to the Pinocchio Village Haus to find all kinds of flatbread options.

Pinocchio Village Haus

Although there are several options for pizza-flavored flatbreads, our favorite thing to get here is a side of Breadsticks and a side of Tomato Basil Soup.

Tomato Soup

Do you see where we’re going with this? You dunk the breadsticks in the soup to create the perfect snack or small meal. And the total is pretty cheap!

Plaza Ice Cream Parlor

The Plaza Ice Cream Parlor is an old-style ice cream shop with hand-dipped cones and sundaes. It’s at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., close to Cinderella Castle.

Plaza Ice Cream Parlor

For our perfect snack here, we get the Brownie Sundae, which is a warm brownie served with hot fudge, whipped cream, a cherry, and your choice of two scoops of ice cream.

Brownie Sundae

THEN we order a side of caramel topping and drizzle that puppy on top. It’s the perfect mix of chocolate and caramel… in a sundae. Add Castle views to that? *chef’s kiss*

Prince Eric’s Village Market

You’ll find Prince Eric’s Village Market if you’re heading to Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid. Get to the ride’s entrance and then turn around, and you’re there.

Prince Eric’s Village Market

Our favorites here are the Jumbo Pretzel with Cheese (it’s beer cheese, not just regular cheese).

Pretzel with Cheese and the Mermaid Slushy

The pretzel is definitely a shareable snack, and the slushes here are not just really pretty drinks — it’s also refreshing!

Sleepy Hollow

You might be tempted to walk right past Sleepy Hollow since it’s kind of nondescript at the entrance to Liberty Square, but don’t make that mistake. This is one of our favorite spots, especially for a brunch-style meal.

Sleepy Hollow

It was tough to choose between the Sweet-and Spicy Chicken-Waffle Sandwich and the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich, but in the end, we had to go with the Fresh Fruit version. It might be because that one has Nutella on it.

Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich

This is a delicious waffle that’s been smothered in a chocolate hazelnut spread (AKA Nutella) and topped with strawberries, blueberries, and bananas. Need we say more?

Storybook Treats

Storybook Treats is located in Fantasyland, just behind Cinderella Castle.

Storybook Treats

This spot has some Princess-themed frozen treats including the Rapunzel Sundae! This has shortcake with wild berry soft serve, Lemon DOLE Whip, berry compote, and sugar flowers.

Rapunzel Sundae

Sunshine Tree Terrace

Sunshine Tree Terrace is in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland. It’s got several different kinds of DOLE Whip soft serve ice cream and even more options for floats.

Sunshine Tree Terrace

Our very favorite, though, has to be the Orange Cream Soft-serve Cup, which comes with Orange DOLE Whip and vanilla soft serve.

Citrus Swirl

There are lots of fun combinations (like the I Lava You Float with Strawberry soda, passion fruit, DOLE Whip orange ice cream, and popping candy), but sometimes you just can’t beat a classic.

Tortuga Tavern

If you were just at Sunshine Tree Terrace, you wouldn’t have to go far to get to Tortuga Tavern.

Tortuga Tavern

People might come here for the Orange Chicken Strips or Barbecue Slaw Dog, but our favorite thing to order is the Peanut Butter, Nutella, and Banana Sandwich. This sandwich is fried like a grilled cheese, and it’s just delicious. We think it’s especially perfect for picky eaters or little kids since all the flavors are familiar. Plus what little kid doesn’t want dessert for lunch?

Westward Ho

Last on the list of Magic Kingdom Quick Service spots is Westward Ho Refreshments. This one’s back over in Frontierland, just across from Pecos Bill.

Westward Ho

There are some basic theme park snacks to get here, like churros or slushies, but we would recommend trying the Candied Bacon Skewer (served with chips).

Grab the bacon!

When we got it, it actually had a little too much fat on it, but the bacon part was delicious. And it’s a very different kind of snack, not one that you can just get anywhere. That wins a lot of points in our book.

So those are our recommendations for what you should get at EVERY Magic Kingdom quick service spot! Keep following AllEars for more tips and advice for your Disney World trip.
