There are dozens of fast food options at Disney. By the way, not just that kind of fast food, but all kinds of restaurants. But do you know what the Disney's Best Fast Food?

After all, Disney parks are huge and find places for restaurants of different styles.

There are options for those who want classic and refined food, but also for those looking for fast and tasty food.

Even because many travelers are looking to enjoy every second of the park walking in the attractions and knowing your characters favorites and want a quick place to order, pay and eat.

With that in mind, we've listed below the best places for fast food (called quick service) at Disney.

If you're only waiting for a burger, you're in for a big surprise!

What is the difference between fast food and quick service?

If you intend to eat Disney fast food, you need to understand that there is a certain fog in this concept.

Technically, fast food is any type of food that can be prepared and served quickly, typically in an over-the-counter restaurant.

Because of this, it is very common to see hamburgers, fries and pizzas in fast food chains.

The McDonalds, Burger King or Pizza Hut are the most famous examples.

However, that's not to say that all fast food will serve this kind of thing. There's nothing wrong with a burger and fries (I love it), but there are other options.

At Disney, restaurants of this type are called quick service, as the customer orders the meal at the counter and is served quickly. In practice, there is no difference with the concept of Fast Food.

In our list (which you'll check out below), there are options for several different types of quick service. Check it out below!

Disney's Best Fast Food

Les Halles Boulangerie and Patisserie

Our list starts by confronting the idea that Fast Food is crap, fried and stuff like that.

This French restaurant (located in the France Pavilion at Epcot) stands out for mixing French cuisine with concept of Fast Food.

The result is some delicious baguette sandwiches and snacks, plus desserts and other sweets.

For example, I really like the Jambon Beurre, a ham and cheese sandwich with Dijon mustard butter served on a half baguette, for $$7.50. However, I've seen a lot of people lining up for a Dinde BLT (turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, for $8.50 dollars).

Another popular item is the Tartine Aux Fromages (saloio bread, tomato sauce, goat cheese, Swiss cheese and parmesan, for $$6.75)

The place also sells some side dishes (like the Croque monsieur, a toasted hot joint, or a cheese and bacon roll called Roulé Lard and Fromage).

For dessert, there are many options, such as the Créme Brûlée ($$4.50), a Macaron ($$5.75) or chocolate mousse, as well as a delicious raspberry mousse cake.

Have you ever dreamed of eating a delicious tomato sauce, goat cheese, Swiss cheese and Parmesan sandwich, with a Créme Brûlée for dessert, at a Fast Food? So it is.

Tangierine Cafe

Did you watch the movie The Avengers?

In its post-credits scene, the Marvel heroes gather to eat shawarma in a New York diner.

If you've always been curious about what a shawarma is (and what it tastes like), this is your opportunity.

Tangierine Cafe is located in the Morocco Pavilion in Epcot and serves a series of delicious dishes from that region.

One of its highlights, of course, is the shawarma portion. There is chicken, lamb (both $15 dollars) and a combination of both ($16 dollars).

Flame Tree Barbecue

This is without a doubt one of the quick services restaurants that we like the most in Disney Parks.

Flame Tree Barbecue - Departed Disney Parks
Flame Tree Barbecue – Partiu Disney Parks

It's virtually impossible to escape the Flame Tree Barbecue at lunchtime if you're at Animal Kingdom.

The delicious smell of their food travels through the entire park.

The food is as good as it smells (and best of all, ultra-fast).

Yes, there is a quick service barbecue option.

They serve many options.

You can buy half a smoked chicken ($$13.29), a smokehouse chicken salad ($$10.99) and, of course, a St. Louis ($18.29, accompanied by baked beans and coleslaw).

I, personally, love the side dish with shredded pork and cheese fries ($$6.99).

For kids, the place serves roast chicken thigh ($$7.19), a turkey sandwich ($$7.19) and a 100% beef hot dog ($$6.99).

Satu'li Canteen

A lot of people tell me that “Disney fast food is really cool”, but that you “lose the fun of dining in places decorated with characters”.

Of course, there are the themed meals with the characters, which have nothing to do with Fast Food. O Storybook Dining, for example, lets you have dinner with the Snow White.

But it is also possible to enjoy a decorated and themed place that serves fast food. An example is the Satu'li Canteen.

Located in the area of Pandora at Animal Kingdom, the restaurant serves some fast food options for your lunch, especially some food bowls.

After all, it's a Na'vi themed restaurant, people from the Avatar franchise.

I like the grilled beef and chicken bowl ($$16.99), but a lot of people order the fried tofu bowl ($$12.49) and the shrimp with garlic and pepper ($$14.99).

There's even a dessert option like the blueberry and cream cheese mousse ($$5.29) or the chocolate cake ($$5.29).

Sleepy hollow

Located on Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom, this restaurant is a Disney hotspot for waffle lovers (especially if they come in the shape of Mickey).

The Sleepy Hollow there's a huge selection of waffles on the menu, including options that serve as a full meal (and not just something for breakfast or dessert).

One of the top choices is the sweet and spicy chicken waffle sandwich, which costs $$10.49. It is so huge that, in my opinion, it serves two people.

Another delicious option is the long breaded sausage, which is served with homemade potato chips. It costs $10.99 dollars and is excellent!

Yes the restaurant Beauty and the Beast theme, where you can participate in a luxurious dinner at night, serves fast food during the day!

It's a very innovative Disney programming. We hope you move on to other restaurants too!

Among the quick service options at the restaurant are the French beef sandwich ($$16.99), braised pork ($$16.99), vegetarian quiche ($$12.99) and potato soup with leek. flatbread ($5.99 dollars).

How much will I spend eating at Disney's fast food?

If you plan on eating Disney fast food, you'll save a lot of money. That's because the restaurants table service (the more traditional style, where you sit at a table and are served by a waitress) are more expensive.

Therefore, the cost will be lower. You can start planning your budget based on the prices quoted in this text, for example.

One option is the Jambon Beurre combo for lunch, with a Créme Brûlée for dessert at Les Halles. In total, $12 dollars. Cheap, isn't it?

If you were curious about the prices and want to calculate how much you would spend on Disney fast food, you can access restaurant menus on the official website of the company.

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets when they arrive in Orlando or even on park day.

We absolutely do not recommend that you do this for a number of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MOSTLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!
