Ten Hearty On the Go Meals at Disney Parks

Quick service dining at Walt Disney World Resort had plenty of unique, hearty, and yummy meals for Guests to enjoy. I’ll never turn down a fancy table service dining experience, and I love searching out the best restaurant to enjoy a sit-down meal. But hearty quick service food is always part of my Disney dining plan. Regardless of what Disney Park or Disney Water Park you are in, I have some quick service restaurant picks for you. Here are ten hearty on-the-go meals at Disney Parks.

Fish & Chips – EPCOT World Showcase, United Kingdom

Beer-battered fish and chips in the United Kingdom at Yorkshire County Fish Shop are hard to beat. Served in a small, portable, easy-to-handle dish, you can enjoy this hearty meal in the English Gardens or in line to see characters like Alice and Mary Poppins that meet Guests nearby. You can snag a British brew from the nearby stand to pair with your meal.


Grilled Corn – Animal Kingdom, Africa, Harambe

I can smell this juicy, savory Disney Park food in my sleep! The grilled corn is a good deal at under $6 per cob and is easy to eat on the go between rides or under the umbrellas that line the street in Harambe Village. I love snagging grilled corn for a light lunch option in the Park. I usually eat more than one of these during a day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.


Nachos – EPCOT World Showcase, La Cantina de San Angel, Mexico

I bypassed this spot for years before taking the plunge and checking out La Cantina de San Angel. The nachos at San Angel are smothered in cheese, seasoned beef, tomatoes, lettuce, jalapeños, and other yummy toppings. At around $15 per order, these nachos are an excellent value for the amount of food you get, are easy to eat on the go, and are shareable if you are looking for a light meal.


Footlong Hot Dog – Magic Kingdom, Main Street, U.S.A., Casey’s Corner

Sometimes you want a classic theme Park snack. The yummy hot dogs at Casey’s Corner hit the spot during a long day in the Park. Not only is the foot-long hot dog impressive, but it is also a good value for travel partners looking to split a meal. Snag some fries to go along with your meal.

Grab a seat outside the restaurant to listen to the Casey’s Corner piano performer or enjoy your hot dog while you await a cavalcade or parade or after hopping on rides. Ask the Casey’s Corner Cast Member serving you for a separate plate to divide the hot dog for easier eating.

Sushi – EPCOT World Showcase, Kabuki Cafe, Japan

If you are a sushi eater, do not miss snagging a sushi sampling in Japan during your trip around World Showcase. Sushi is easy to eat on the go, fresh, and delicious. If you are a sushi newbie, try the California Roll from Kabuki Cafe.

I love that new sushi eaters can try cheaper-priced but high-quality sushi without the pressure of a sit-down restaurant. The California Roll is only $6. If you have never tried sushi, what better place to get outside your comfort zone than on vacation? My family’s other Kabuki Cafe menu favorites are chilled edamame for under $5 and the icy and yummy Kakigori. Kakigori is powdery shaved ice with fruity flavored drizzle on top.


Korean Barbecued Pork Belly Bowl – Hollywood Studios, Fairfax Fare, Sunset Boulevard

I love hanging out under the umbrellas at Fairfax Fare to relax and take in the scenes on Sunset Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. If you are looking for a hearty meal after a span in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, you should drop by this eatery.

The Korean Barbecued Pork Belly Bowl is juicy and flavorful and comes under $15. Thin braised pork belly tossed in a Korean Barbecue Sauce served with crunchy and fresh salad, a green onion garnish with mashed potatoes on the side. Talk about a hearty meal; I cannot get enough of this dish!


Shrimp Louie Lettuce Wrap – Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Typhoon Tilly’s

Sometimes you want fresh, healthy food on vacation. Enter the Shrimp Louie Lettuce Wrap at Typhoon Lagoon! The crunchy entree at Typhoon Tilly’s is the perfect way to break from a day in the pools and refuel. At around $13 per meal, you get a wrap full of juicy Florida Gulf shrimp, pineapple salsa, and a cilantro-lime slaw served with crunchy chips. Perfect for poolside munching in the Florida sun!

Fried Rice – Animal Kingdom, Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes, Asia

Yak & Yeti Local Foods Fried Rice


No worries if you don’t have time for a table service dining experience at Yak & Yeti! There is a quick service option. Served in adorable foldable boxes, the sides from Yak & Yeti are portable, yummy, and affordable. One of my favorite light lunches in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a hearty helping of fried rice from Yak and Yeti that I can snag for under $8 per order.


Tots and Cheese Sauce– Friar’s Nook, Magic Kingdom, Fantasyland

If cheesy sauce and fluffy tater tots are your idea of a great snack or meal, you are my kind of person. Magic Kingdom Park can deliver this spud-central snack at Friar’s Nook in Fantasyland. If you want to enjoy tater tots as a side, opt for the Bacon Macaroni & Cheese Hotdog and tot meal while still keeping your total under $13.

Nothing says convenience like a fresh, delicious meal in an easy-to-manage bowl. Disney’s Hollywood Studios Fairfax Fare serves up several bowl options you will want to taste. If you are looking for a Plant-Based option, I recommend the Soba Noodle Salad Bowl.

This chilled noodle bowl hits the spot midday in the central Florida heat. It’s made from chilled soba noodles, crunchy edamame, red cabbage, shredded carrots, crunchy celery, red peppers, and green onions. The dish is tossed in a Yakisoba Sauce and served in a waffle bowl. This is one of my favorite Plant-based quick service eats in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.


Which of these Disney World Park eats is on your list for vacation?!

About Katie Chapman

Hey There! I am a Georgia native with a passion for writing, traveling, cooking, decorating, pugs and of course all things Disney. Growing up in South Georgia just a few hours from Walt Disney World made for a magical childhood. Some of my best memories were made on Main Street U.S.A. with my sister watching SpectroMagic nighttime parade or beside my grandparents, parents and extended family at Chef Mickey’s celebrating on a family vacation. Epcot was my favorite park from a young age and I credit it with my interest in and love for international travel. As a kid I loved meeting characters and watching films around World Showcase and could spend hours exploring each of the countries in Epcot. These days, my husband and I get away to explore a new country whenever we can and even incorporate trips to The Disney Store and Disney Parks around the world in our travels. One of our travel goals is to visit every Disney Park in the world. I love writing about Disney restaurants, park tips, Disney outfit inspiration and Disney history. Pocahontas is my favorite Disney Princess (90s kid here!) but Mr. Toad is my spirit animal. When I’m not at Disney I’m reading about park history, watching Disney documentaries and shopping vintage Disney merch for park outfits. I never pass up a reservation to Ohana, an empty seat on Living with the Land or a Violet Sake.
