Where to Get a Quick Meal at Magic Kingdom

Dining is a big part of a Walt Disney World vacation. There are so many options to choose from when visiting Walt Disney World regarding food. From signature sit-down meals to quick grab-and-go options, Disney has it all

If you are a family that wants to keep moving while in the Parks, then quick service will be your best option. Guests can use mobile order through the My Disney Experience app to preorder their food, select a return time, and quickly pick up their food when it is ready.

When in Magic Kingdom, Guests can choose from a handful of quick service options throughout their day. We will share our top five options you would enjoy during your day in Magic Kingdom.

Columbia Harbour House- Liberty Square

Our first option for a quick service meal while in Magic Kingdom will be found at Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square. This location is open for lunch and dinner and provides various quick and unique options for Guests.

Columbia Harbour House offers New England-style foods. Options like fish, shrimp, and lobster rolls can all be found on the menu. Sides are fresh vegetables or hushpuppies—both excellent options.

We like that there is ample seating at Columbia Harbour House. Even if the lower level is full, there is a great dining option upstairs. This area is often quieter and provides fantastic views of Liberty Square.

This is one of our top picks when in Magic Kingdom. We like to share the Trio Platter, which combines shrimp, fish, and chicken nuggets. By sharing, everyone gets a little of everything but doesn’t get overly full.

Next time you are in Magic Kingdom, make sure to check out Columbia Harbour House with the delicious options it has to offer.

Casey’s Corner- Main Street, U.S.A.

An iconic quick service option at Magic Kingdom is Casey’s Corner. Located at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., this quick service location is about hot dogs. Guests can enjoy hot dogs and the ever-popular corn dog nuggets here.

The menu at Casey’s Corner is minimal, so if you aren’t a fan of hot dogs, you will want to skip this location in Magic Kingdom. The location of Casey’s Corner makes it a perfect spot to enjoy a meal while seeing a beautiful view of the castle or catching the Festival of Fantasy Parade or one of the cavalcades. 

Remember, because of its location, Casey’s Corner gets extremely busy. Plan using mobile order to avoid the longer waits built here throughout the day.

Friar’s Nook- Fantasyland

Another top choice in the Magic Kingdom is a smaller location offering excellent and unique options. Found over in Fantasyland, Friar’s Nook has some fun tot options to enjoy throughout the day.

There is a mixture of different tot bowls that you can choose from, making sure everyone has the chance to get what they want. The creamy bacon macaroni and cheese tots are great for the little ones, whereas the loaded buffalo chicken tots are fun for adults looking for something spicy.

Friar’s Nook also offers mobile ordering, making getting your food leisurely. Keep your eyes on the menu; the breakfast items here were also delicious. We also love the breakfast options here, as they have both sweet and savory options. We like the mini donuts as well as the breakfast sandwich.

This is also a smaller location, so quickly get those mobile orders in.

Waffle from Sleepy Hollow at Magic Kingdom

Sleepy Hollow- Liberty Square

Sleepy Hollow is one of our favorite locations to eat at Magic Kingdom. The food is great, and the views are some of the best in Magic Kingdom. Located right to the side of Cinderella Castle, Sleepy Hollow is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or a quick snack throughout the day.

This is where you will find the iconic Mickey waffle in Magic Kingdom. You can load it up with powdered sugar or strawberries. The two more popular items found here are the fresh fruit waffle sandwich. This waffle has Nutella and an assortment of fresh fruit, including bananas, strawberries, and blueberries. 

You will want to try out the spicy chicken waffle sandwich for lunch. This fresh waffle includes honey-sriracha glazed chicken with a delicious broccoli slaw. Grab this and enjoy the breathtaking views.

Sleepy Hollow gets extremely busy, so look into mobile ordering early to ensure you get a stop. We find this spot breathtaking as you can enjoy your meal next to the castle as you watch people come and go throughout the Magic Kingdom. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe- Tomorrowland

The final option for a quick meal at Magic Kingdom will be Cosmic Rays in Tomorrowland. A larger dining location, Cosmic Rays offers more traditional options such as burgers and chicken nuggets. What we like about this option is that it has a lot of options to choose from. Because of this, it makes it easier for everyone to find something that they want to enjoy at mealtime.

We also enjoy being entertained by Sonny Eclipse while enjoying our meal here. Typically opened later into the event, Cosmic Rays is also an excellent option for those late-night snacks. Although it might not be the most exciting or unique option at Magic Kingdom, Cosmic Rays is still an excellent quick service.

Magic Kingdom has various quick service locations to choose from throughout the Park. These five options are our go-to when we want something to each while visiting Magic Kingdom. We hope by sharing these with you; you will have a fantastic meal the next time you visit Magic Kingdom.
