Ruined our holiday! We arrived in Disney 17th oct 2022, woke up in morning and went for early breakfast in El Mercado. My daughter & partner ate sausages, which they said tasted reheated & rubbery! That evening both experienced stomach cramps & sickness, which continued for a few days. My daughter recovered quicker but Stuart was unwell all holiday! We reported to our TUI rep who said they would send help, 2 days later never did! Chased again & was told someone from hotel would contact us - they never did! In a foreign country you are at a loss with what to do and nervous to go to doctors due to costs & I was relying on TUis assistance! We travelled as a party of 8 & the 2 who were stuck with the food poisoning it ruined our holiday! I reported to the restaurant, sent all evidence but the receipt I had had date for day before - I advised them to check with hotel , as the date stamp on that receipt we were still on our plane and hadn’t even checked in to hotel, but the restaurant basically accused me of lying! They failed to do their due diligence and their incompetence ruined our holiday. It makes me so sad to think of it! I wasn’t looking for anything but I wanted an acknowledgment at least and an apology , not for the issue to be made worse! As a Disney fanatic , who visits Florida every 2 years, this was definitely not the experience I expected from them , nor the treatment! A very poor way to treat anyone & I must say the whole fiasco of even trying to speak with them & raise the issue took months! A totally disgusting experience all round & will never go back!
Cons:Terrible food, caused food poisoning & no aftercare

Don't get the flatbread. The crust is too hard to bite or chew. Covered with tomato paste and a scant amount of something green sprinkled on it with eight half-inch circles of cheese. Terrible meal for sixteen dollars.
Cons:Horrible tasting tomato paste.

Wow. I’m so disappointed in my dinner last night that I need to write a review to maybe prevent/help others from eating here. I ordered the Philly Cheesesteak. Figured you can’t go wrong. Oh was I wrong. The meat was so tough and over cooked. It says it comes with onions and peppers which I love! Man was I disappointed when it came out with a mini cup of Luke warm onions and peppers for me to add. The cheese was like rubber. Not all melty and gooey as it should be! The fries were ok, but again luke warm. My kids got the chicken tenders and fries which were ok. Husband said his burger was over cooked too. Oh. And my sandwich was $16 which rubbed that salt in my wounds even more!! I definitely won’t go back there!!!
Cons:Terrible, overpriced food. Wouldn’t recommend it to my enemy.

We thought the main food court had lots of options to choose from, and was open for a decent amount of time. Once when grabbing a very late dinner there was a very kind cast member taking everyone's order so their food was prepared fresh and was still hot. We appreciated that the food court kept making food right up to closing and that none of the cast members were bothered by everyone coming in to grab something to eat last minute. There are also lots of nice grab and go options during the day which is helpful if you want something for later on.
Pros:Lots of variety, grab and go options, good operating hours
Cons:No complaints here!

Pretty standard Disney cafeteria food, not my favorite. The food was alright, good if you are just dying to eat and it's the only place open but I would pick other places over this one.
Pros:Lots of seating, indoor, can get free cups of water
Cons:Food is not great

We like El Mercado for the variety that they offer. Everyone in our group could find something that they like. And for quick service it’s pretty good! We stopped for breakfast, lunch and quick in between meals during our 4 day stay and weren’t disappointed.
Pros:Variety of choices
Cons:During peak meal times you can wait in long lines.

We had lunch here during our recent trip. We were able to walk right up to the counters. My husband and I both had questions about the offerings, and the CM there was just SO helpful! She literally took out the pasta and different sauces to show me the options, and offered my husband a couple of different choices for his side of potatoes. We appreciated her help, and the food was fresh and really good! It was not as loud as a typical food court is either, which is great.
