CS Lunch & Snack Suggestions

Hey Disney Folk! We're doing a three-day quick trip April 8, 9, 10. I need a few suggestions for snacks and lunches. We're not really sweets people. A pretzel would win over a bowl of ice cream in a Snack Smackdown in our house. Anyhow. I'm a creature of habit and tend to haunt Columbia HH ... And nowhere else! LOL Time to broaden my Horizons. (Get it?) So here's the deal "

Breakfast " Resort food court (always, we like to hightail it to the parks)
Lunch " Columbia HH ... a favorite
Snack " Suggestions in Frontierland? Westward Ho? Golden Oak?
Dinner " Crystal Palace reservations.

Breakfast " Resort food court (always)
Lunch " Suggestions for CS in Future/Innoventions area?
Snack " L'Artisan de Glace
Dinner " San Angel Inn reservation

Breakfast " Resort food court (always)
Lunch " Suggestions for CS in Hollywood Studios?

I would suggest Sunshine Seasons in The Land pavilion for an Epcot Future World area CS. As for Hollywood, none of the CS places really bowl me over, although I have eaten at most of them at some point. I tend to go back to Epcot to eat, or even back to my resort. mickey

I'd go with Sunshine Seasons in EPCOT too (though I always prefer eating at World Showcase than Future World).

For a snack around Frontierland, you could pop into Pecos Bills and get some chili cheese (or in my case, just cheese) fries?

The couple of days I'm planning on being at Hollywood Studios, I'm considering going around to the Boardwalk/Beach Club and eating at Beaches and Cream and Boardwalk Bakery instead of trying to find something at HS though I did enjoy the hot dog with mac and cheese and truffle oil from Fairfax Fare.

Well, if the Golden Oak is open, eat there. It's my favorite CS in ALL of WDW.

CS in HS is spotty...we usually grab snacks-as-meals, so an adult beverage and a funnel cake or some other healthy combo like that.

My new discovey in HS is the Lounge at Brown Derby. If you can score a table order the sliders and an adult beverage and take a break from the action. Also at Backlot you can get a good burger or chicken wings. I think the burger I had at Backlot was better than the one I had at Sci-Fi. All the other options there are pretty bad.

I've heard great things about Sunshine Seasons, but I've only eaten there once. I would rather walk over to Spice Road and give that a shot or Tutto Gusto. But that is a long walk.

In MK alot of people forget about the egg roll cart and the corn dogs as well. Sometimes I like a nice greasy egg roll and a Coke. I think to myself, "this is probably the worst thing I can eat for my health besides out-right poison- and it tastes so good." And it will taste good later when it repeats on you. An added bonus!

Don't forget the Toluca Turkey Leg. Not the nicest thing to watch someone eat, but they're damn delicious and good for an instant protein injection.

And once you're done gnawing, you can pick up the air freshener for your car!

Or how about a fridge magnet?

I can't really recommend a place in Futureworld, because we tend to do CS in one of the pavilions in World Showcase. If I had to pick one though, I would go with Sunshine Seasons.

DHS- Here's my tip. Leave! Take a relaxing boat ride to the Boardwalk, go to Yacht and Beach Club and grab something at the grill by the pool, but avoid DHS. DS was just there on a school trip, and had to eat in that park. He ended up at Sunset Ranch Market twice that day. First time ordered a burger, which took forever and wasn't very good. Second time he ordered a Caesar salad. That's right. A high school boy of 15 years, would rather eat a salad without even the chicken on it, because he figured they couldn't really mess that up too badly. He and his roomies ordered pizza when they got back to their off property hotel room.

The Backlot Express at HS is pretty good. We have had the Grilled Turkey and Cheese on Multigrain Ciabatta, with Arugula, and Red Peppers served with Carrot Sticks or French Fries. I was rather impressed at how good it was, but I was also very hungry, close to "hangry".

I do like the Picnic Burger at Sci-Fi for a sit down lunch, but that more than a meal, it's an adventure!

Sunshine Seasons is a really good CS choice in EPCOT.

I usually eat Backlot Express or ABC Commissary when at DHS.

Electric Umbrella or Sunshine Seasons in Epcot.

Anything in the carts around Frontierland are good. I usually have a churro and a coke. But popcorn is also really good.

I love Disney popcorn. The freshly popped corn not the ones in the bags.

Hubby raved about the chicken waffle sandwich at Magic Kingdom. I think it's at Sleepy Hollow? Not sure since dang it, I wasn't there. But it's at the top of my must try list for our upcoming trip.

For counter service in Epcot's Future World, I would also go with Sunshine Seasons. The menu is so varied almost anyone should be able to find something good there.

Hollywood Studios, ehhh...there's decent counter-service food at DHS but nothing I'd go out of my way for.

As for snacks, popcorn is always a great choice. We're also big fans of the eggrolls at Joy of Tea over by the China pavilion in Epcot.

Sleepy Hollow is correct. Haven't tried one of these yet, but sounds SOO delish! They have a limited serving schedule for the waffles. I think it's 11am-5pm. That probably won't affect you since you have an ADR for CP, but I always seem to miss this window!

If I have to do Future World CS, it's always Sunshine Seasons, though I try to plan to hit La Cantina in Mexico or Kringla in Norway since they're near the beginning of WS.

I can't say I've snacked much in Frontierland. I would probably pop through the archway and hit Aloha Isle for a Dole Whip!

For Epcot CS I like Sunshine seasons. It has a wide variety food choices. At Hollywood Studios if we are eating CS we usually go to ABC Commissary. I like the Asian salad from there and my DH likes the seafood platter. Overall pretty good food. My snacking at MK is a dole whip and popcorn.

Sounds great! Thank you! All! I have such limited experience with eating in Frontierland and the Innoventions area!

sunshine seasons at epcot is excellent, but I would also suggest a quick walk over to world showcase just on the other side of the walkway and hit the cs in mexico if you like Mexican it is really good

we have only ever eaten a cs in hs at Fairfax faire and had ribs and hot dogs it was good but we usually eat at 50ies prime

golden outpost is good or a corndog at westward ho
