1. La Cantina De San Angel (Mexico)

Vibrant, festive, and full of life, La Cantina De San Angel is the Quick Service crown jewel of Mexico. Well, the crown jewel of the Mexico Pavilion… that is!

Here, you can expect to find all your typical Mexican fare, from tasty tacos and nachos to sweet churros and guacamole! However, this isn’t your average everyday neighborhood Taco Bell.

Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe invites you to relish in the realness of their endless array of traditional specialties, served in a rustic Scandinavian-themed setting!

The only downside here is that everything on the menu is more or less a dessert item… if you can even consider that a downside!

  • Top Pick: School Bread – Sweet Roll filled with Custard and dipped in Coconut

3. Yorkshire County Fish Shop (UK)

You’ll only find two things to eat on the menu at Yorkshire Country Fish Shop – and that’s crisp battered fish and piping-hot chips!

But what this quaint little shack lacks in variety, it makes up for in flavor. And whether is be Bass Ale or Harp Lager, who could enjoy a plate of fine British fare without a proper pint?

4. Katsura Grill (Japan)

Chances are, you’ve walked past this serene setting and have never taken the mild trek uphill to find from where that pleasant aroma is coming.

But if you venture towards the sound of taiko drums beating softy in the distance, you can enjoy a delectable meal of Chicken Teriyaki, Sushi, or Chicken Cutlet Curry, as you sit amid a gorgeous Japanese garden that showcases a one of a kind peaceful water feature.

Which Disney Resort has the best Quick Service?

In my opinion, the best resort Quick Service is Captain Cook’s, located within Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

Revered for its Thai Coconut Meatballs, Pulled Pork Nachos, and Tonga Toast, this Quick Service offers savory eats, sweet treats, ultra-relaxed vibes, and a stunning view of the Lava Pool.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is also on the monorail, making it incredibly accessible to guests who are not staying at the resort.
