more disney dining- counter service


Along with planning table service meals for dinner, I like to choose a few counter service options too. Some of these we'll be sure to do, others may not work out due to where we are or what we are doing. Rarely, do we revolve our day around lunch. There is no need for reservations (can't make them anyway), since there is never a long wait for counter service!
A counter service credit on the Dining Plan consists of an entree, a dessert, and a beverage. We are not huge dessert eaters, so sometimes we'll grab a (wrapped) Mickey Rice Krispy for later. I will confess, I eat more cupcakes while in Disney than I do in a whole year! :O)


On our Animal Kingdom day, we've only ever done one of two choices, this year will be no exception....

 
Flame Tree BBQ
 
or
 
Yak & Yeti
 
 
 
On our Epcot day, I want to try Boulangerie Patisserie les Halles (in France)
I've been wanting to do this forever! France is my favorite country and we had an awesome dinner at Chefs de France a few years ago. We have to try the CS options here for lunch!!
Boulangerie Patisserie - DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE!!!! So many choices to satisfy your sweet tooth. #EPCOT
 
Boulangerie Patisserie. This is newest french bakery it opened earlier in 2013 @Epcot, France Pavilion
Ham & Cheese Croissant
Boulangerie, the bakery in France, World Showcase, Epcot. After you have lunch at Beirgarten in Germany, dinner at the hibachi in Japan, come to France and have something sweet!
.......and tons of pastry options for dessert!
 
 
Contempo Cafe' (Contemporary Resort)
This will be a first for us. I still haven't seen the Contemporary
(other than passing through on the monorail).
I looked at the CS options on the menu and it looked like a good choice.
So, on one of our MK days, we'll hopefully try lunch at Contemo Cafe' and take a little resort tour!
 
Contempo Cafe. Lobster roll at the Contemporary Resort
The Lobster Roll looks yummy!
 
and maybe a cupcake for dessert...
Dos Leches Cupcake from the Contempo Cafe at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Lake Buena Vista FL
 
 
Monorail entering the lobby of Disney's Contemporary Resort hotel - makes me so happy.
 
 
Min & Bill's Dockside Diner (DHS)
This may seem like an odd choice, but we have trouble finding good CS in DHS (other than Pizza Planet-which we've done numerous times).
 
Peter mentioned getting a turkey leg. I saw that you can get them at Min & Bill's, and the menu looked intriguing. We'll see about this one.

Disney snack credit use: Turkey leg! You can find these in all the parks at Disney World, and in Disneyland. They are huge, filling, and my husband loves them. I've noticed a lot of people grab them right before they go sit in front of the castle to watch the evening fireworks.
Even if we don't end up doing lunch here, I'll definitely be trying one of their shakes (which btw, are one snack credit on the dining plan).

Trail's End -To-Go
I know, another weird one. BUT.....I have plans that take us to Fort Wilderness and we'll need lunch while we are there.
Trails End Restaurant - A full service buffet restaurant in Fort Wildness Campground - items include - chicken, sloppy joe, pizza, beans and other offerings. A breakfast buffet is also offered. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch. If you are on a dinning plan save your allotments for other restaurants and meals.
 
Buttermilk Fried Chicken House of Blues Orlando
 
Our last day may take us to Downtown Disney for lunch. I have no idea where we'll end up eating, although Wolfgang Puck is a favorite!!
 
 
 
Who knows where we will actually end up eating lunch....but these choices look so yummy!
