Magic Kingdom Quick Service Restaurant Guide

When you have a busy day at a Disney Park, often you need a quick option for dining. I’m going to start out with some honesty here: Magic Kingdom Quick Service restaurants aren’t exactly known for their stellar food. But, if you know where to go, you can find some decent options. So here’s our guide to all things Quick Service dining at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom!

What is Quick Service Dining at Disney World?

Think of Quick Service Dining in Disney World like fast food. These are restaurants where you order at a counter and pick up your food at a counter. While the term Quick Service covers a pretty wide umbrella, you’ll actually find two different kinds of Quick Service options: Counter Service restaurants that have full menus for a meal, and Quick Service snack options that offer a limited selection of items.

We’re going to break those down here and divide them up for you, so that if you are looking for a full meal you’ll know where to go. However, in the Disney World app, you’ll notice that full meal Counter Service locations and snack locations are both defined as a “Quick Service Dining Experience.”

(I’m pretty sure the reason for the differentiation has to do with the Dining Plan, but since the Dining Plan isn’t a thing right now, we won’t get into that!)

We’ll also tell you generally when these restaurants are open, but definitely check the times before your trip or on the day of your trip to Magic Kingdom, because they can definitely change!

Best Quick Service Restaurants at Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom Quick Service options aren’t really…the best. But you can find some good options. (I’ll be honest though, if you can swing it budget-wise and time-wise, consider doing a Table Service sit-down restaurant at Magic Kingdom!) Here are some Quick Service favorites you might want to consider.

For breakfast, get a Cheshire Cat Tail from Cheshire Cafe or a Nutella and Fruit Waffle from Sleepy Hollow.

For lunch, I would opt for either Casey’s Corner (if you are a hot dog fan), Pecos Bill (if you are in the mood for Tex-Mex), or Pinocchio Village Haus (if you have picky kids who just want pizza).

For dinner, head to Columbia Harbour House for some healthier options. (Before obviously hitting up some after dinner ice cream at The Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.)

How to Use Mobile Order

Many Magic Kingdom Quick Service restaurants offer Mobile Order. If the restaurant you want to go to offers it, USE IT! Mobile Ordering can cut down significantly on the time you wait for your food.

And if you are a good planner, you can actually order your entire day of food ahead of time if you want.

Go into the My Disney Experience App, find the restaurant you want and click “Order Food.” Then you’ll be able to select a pick up time and choose the items you want to add to your order.

When you arrive at the restaurant, click the “I’m Here, Prepare My Order.” The app will then let you know when your order is ready and you can go up to the Mobile Order window to pick it up.

It’s so easy, and since so many people don’t use Mobile Order, it can cut down on lines.

Here are the Quick Service restaurants and snack locations in Magic Kingdom that offer Mobile Order:

  • Main Street Confectionery
  • Casey’s Corner
  • Sunshine Tree Terrace
  • Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Columbia Harbour House
  • Pinocchio Village Haus
  • The Friar’s Nook
  • Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café
  • The Lunching Pad

Magic Kingdom Quick Service Restaurants

Let’s go through the park geographically to look at this list. We’ll start by going down Main Street U.S.A. and then go through the park clockwise, starting in Adventureland and ending in Tomorrowland.

Casey’s Corner (Main Street U.S.A.)

On Main Street U.S.A. just before you get to the hub, you’ll find the beloved hot dog restaurant, Casey’s Corner. Think of Casey’s Corner as your location for classic American ballpark food. They serve all hot dogs all the time in a variety of ways. They also have fries and chili-cheese fries. Casey’s Corner is also where you can get corn dog nuggets.

Casey’s Corner is open for lunch and dinner (and they usually stay open pretty late if you are looking for some late-night food).

Casey’s Corner also offers Mobile Order.

Tortuga Tavern (Adventureland)

Tortuga Tavern is located across from Pirates of the Caribbean. Here you’ll find pretty classic theme park food, but with a twist. The chicken strips have a orange-soy glaze. The burger is a teriyaki burger. There’s also a hot dog on the menu. However, the menu here can see a lot of variation.

Options at Tortuga Tavern are pretty limited, and this restaurant tends to be open seasonally. When it’s open, it’s usually open for lunch and dinner (although they don’t tend to stay open very late).

Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe (Frontierland)

Pecos Bill is located in Frontierland just before you get to the bridge that goes to Splash Mountain. They serve a variety of Tex-Mex options, included tacos, nachos, and fajitas. They also have burgers on the menu along with some rice bowl options.

Pecos Bill is open for lunch and dinner, and is another good option that tends to stay open pretty late.

They also offer Mobile Order.

Columbia Harbour House (Liberty Square)

Columbia Harbour House is located in Liberty Square just across from The Haunted Mansion. This is a New England themed restaurant, and they serve a lot of seafood dishes like lobster rolls, grilled salmon, and shrimp.

While I’ll admit this isn’t generally the most amazing food, I like this location for a healthier option when are getting a little tired of burgers and fries.

Columbia Harbour House is open for lunch and dinner.

They also offer Mobile Order.

And pro tip: If you are having trouble finding seating, try upstairs! A lot of people don’t think to go upstairs and there is a lot of additional seating (and some quiet) upstairs.

Pinocchio Village Haus (Fantasyland)

Pinocchio Village Haus is located in Fantasyland right next door to It’s a Small World and across from Prince Charming Carousel. Here you’ll find lots of flatbread (aka pizza) options, along with some chicken tenders.

This is definitely not the best theme park food you’ll have, but we often find ourselves here because it is the only real Quick Service meal option in Fantasyland and it’s not bad. Plus we LOVE when we can get one of the tables that overlooks It’s a Small World!

Pinocchio Village Haus is open for lunch and dinner.

Mobile Order is also available here.

The Friar’s Nook (Fantasyland)

The Friar’s Nook is located next to Princess Fairytale Hall. Here you’ll find burgers, hot dogs, and macaroni and cheese dishes. For breakfast they have a breakfast sandwich as well as some cinnamon sugar donuts.

There isn’t a separate seating area here, so you’ll likely need to take this food with you to go and find somewhere to eat. (Pro tip: When I’m looking for a spot in Fantasyland, I like to sit on the brick wall next to the Tea Cups.)

The Friar’s Nook is open for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner.

The Friar’s Nook also offers Mobile Order.

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café (Tomorrowland)

Cosmic Ray’s is located in Tomorrowland right as you enter it from Fantasyland, across from Tomorrowland Speedway. Here you’ll mostly find burgers, hot dogs, chicken strips, and fries. While I haven’t been particularly impressed with their burgers, I will say that their fries can definitely hit the spot after several hot hours in a theme park.

This is also where you’ll find Sunny Eclipse, a fan-favorite animatronic that serenades diners.

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café is open for lunch and dinner.

Mobile Order is available here.

Magic Kingdom Quick Service Snack Locations

Now let’s dive into the Quick Service Snack locations in Magic Kingdom. These are going to be kiosks and shops that mostly focus on smaller snack items, although some of them might have an item you could make a lunch with (like hot dogs).

Remember too, that in addition to these locations you’ll also find carts all over Magic Kingdom selling snack items like popcorn, pretzels, and ice cream bars. Plus, keep an eye out for the spring roll cart in Adventureland (which isn’t always open but is beloved by a lot of people).

Main Street Confectionery (Main Street, U.S.A.)

Main Street Confectionery is located to the right just as you are entering Main Street U.S.A. Here’s where you can get your candy, cupcakes, caramel apples, cookies, and other sweet treats (that apparently start with the letter C).

They are open pretty much all day, from park open to usually an hour after park close! So you can even grab a snack from here on your way out of the park.

Main Street Confectionery also offers Mobile Order.

Main Street Bakery (Main Street, U.S.A.)

Main Street Bakery is located on the right of Main Street U.S.A. just a few buildings before you enter The Hub in front of Cinderella Castle. This is the official Starbucks location in Magic Kingdom, so you’ll find lots of coffee drinks as well as some breakfast sandwiches and pastries.

Aloha Isle (Adventureland)

Aloha Isle is located in Adventureland next door to Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room and across from The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. It’s easy to get Sunshine Tree Terrace and Aloha Isle mixed up because they both serve DOLE Whip flavors. But Aloha Isle is where you can get the original pineapple flavored DOLE Whip.

Aloha Isle opens mid-morning and usually closes at park close.

Golden Oak Outpost (Frontierland)

Golden Oak Outpost is located on your left just as you are entering Frontierland from the back of Adventureland. They serve chicken tenders and fries, but they can sometimes have a rotating menu of different items.

Westward Ho is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Sleepy Hollow Refreshments (Liberty Square)

Sleepy Hollow Refreshments is located just as you enter Liberty Square from The Hub. This is where you can get those waffles filled with fruit and Nutella that you have likely seen all over Instagram. They also offer entrees like turkey legs, corn dogs, and a spicy chicken and waffle sandwich. So while this is technically a snack location, you could get a meal’s worth of food here.

Sleepy Hollow Refreshments is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Mobile Order is available here.

Liberty Square Market (Liberty Square)

Liberty Square Market is located across from the Liberty Square Riverboat. Here you’ll find turkey legs, Mickey pretzels, and hot dogs along with healthier snack options like fresh fruit and some juice slushies.

They are usually open from 11:00 a.m. until later into the evening.

Storybook Treats (Fantasyland)

Storybook Treats is located next to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and The Friar’s Nook. This is your place for ice cream treats in Fantasyland. You’ll find sundaes, soft-serve cups and cones, and specialty ice cream treats.

Storybook Treats is open from mid-morning until park close usually.

Gaston’s Tavern (Fantasyland)

Gaston’s Tavern is located in the back of Fantasyland, past Be Our Guest (the Beast’s Castle) and the Little Mermaid ride. You’ll know it by the Gaston fountain out front. This is where you can get the popular giant cinnamon roll. They also serve LeFou’s Brew (a fruity apple drink) and have a ham sandwich on the menu.

Gaston’s Tavern is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Prince Eric’s Village Market (Fantasyland)

Prince Eric’s Village Market is located across from Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, behind Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. The menu here is pretty small. They have a turkey leg, a jumbo pretzel, and some slushy options.

Cheshire Café (Fantasyland)

Cheshire Café is located in Fantasyland across from the Mad Tea Party. It is one of my favorite Magic Kingdom Quick Service snack locations because they have the Cheshire Cat Tail — a puff pastry twist filled with chocolate and crème patisserie. They also have some other baked treats and some specialty drink and coffee items.

Cheshire Café is usually open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours.

Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies (Tomorrowland)

The menu includes doughnut holes and coffee in the morning, and for the rest of the day there are dumplings for quick snacks.

Cool Ship is located in Tomorrowland kind of near the entrances to the PeopleMover and the Astro Orbiter. They serve nuts and pre-packaged ice cream bars (like Mickey Premium Bars).

Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom

If you need a coffee fix, there is a Joffrey’s kiosk in Tomorrowland. It is located near Space Mountain. You’ll find coffee here as well as some pastries.
