These days, theme park food is WAY more than just simple hamburgers and hotdogs.

Resorts like Disney World and Universal Studios Florida have taken theme park food up a notch, offering unique foods not found anywhere else. Between Disney World’s EPCOT festivals and Universal’s Harry Potter-specific foods, there are plenty of delicious things to choose from. But who does food better?

So we asked you, our AllEars readers, who has the better food — here’s what you told us!


At least one of our readers, Angela, feels like Universal offers better value and quality when it comes to counter service food: “Universal has better quick service options. Or maybe the options are the same but they just don’t taste as fake.”

Shane agreed on value: “Hate to say universal and with the annual pass the discounts are by far greater at universal too!”

Lisa believes the quality of food is better at Universal: “Food quality of Disney has gone down. Universal is much better.”


Out of the nearly 100 responses we got from readers, though, the overwhelming majority of our readers picked Disney World’s food hands-down.

Linda agrees: “Disney – They do food allergies better than Universal. I’m confident that my family will be able to eat without having reactions.”

Christine mentioned the variety offered by Disney over Universal: “Disney… across the board, kiosks, counter service, and table service. Far more variety, and significantly better quality.”

Jessica summed up, “Overall the winner is Disney. I was so disappointed in the food at Universal, except Volcano Bay. Volcano Bay was really good.”
