Grey Stuff. Yum. (No clue what it is...)
But yeah, unless there's a location I've never heard of, I've always considered MK the worst of the four parks for a special meal. This upcoming trip we'll be leaving MK to freshen up for our reservation at California Grill.
We've settled on Tony's Town Square Restaurant for an Italian meal a few times which is passable. We are going to give Liberty Tree Tavern another try in a couple of weeks...and now I can get a beer there.
Grey Stuff. Yum.
The grey stuff? It's delicious! Don't believe me? Ask the dishes!

I haven't been to Skipper Canteen yet. I'm hoping that one's not half bad.
The best deal for me is still Cosmic Rays over in Tomorrowland. Its location is good being near the Hub and at the corner of Fantasyland so even if you are on the other side of the park it doesn't take long to get there. The prices aren't bad for the portion size and the food is pretty tasty. Even when its busy Ive never waited long for food and its typically pretty easy to find a seat.
Cosmic Ray's is the place that serves counter service burgers and such, right?
I used to like Peco's Bill's for their taco salads. Do they still have those? For some reason I don't remember seeing them last time I was there.
But other than quick and easy counter food, I've never been impressed with Magic Kingdom.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
Correct. I usually get the turkey sandwich because its pretty big and fills me up. Plus its nice that they have a toppings bar so you can really make it anyway you want.
I think the taco salad bowls are a signature item at Pecos Bill's so they should still be there. Last time I walked through there I saw people with them and that was within the past couple months.
I was super disappointed with Cosmic Ray's when we were there this year. It used to be our go-to place for a decent meal at MK, but they streamlined the menu taking away many of the good options. They had only two of three bays open when we ate there, and they both had the same menu, so there wasn't the please-everyone variety of food that once was offered.
I really liked the Caprese flatbread at Pinnochio's, but other than that I'd describe all MK counter service food as "meh." It all seems to just be frozen then reheated crap across the board. We didn't eat at any table service there, my wife wanted to try BOG but we couldn't get reservations before about 9pm, and none of the others seemed very appealing.
Come to think of it, if I had been able to get a beer at Cosmic Ray's (Harpoon UFO, maybe?) maybe my opinion would go up a little. :)
Yeah, Cosmic Ray's sucks. Pinnochio's has the good flat breads and the spicy chicken sandwich, Columbia Harbour House has fried seafood, if that's your thing, and yeah, the Mexican stuff at Pecos. None of them are extraordinary. I'm often resigned to chicken nuggets at MK, which aren't terrible, but I'm not sure why stuff at the other parks is better.
At least there's Dolewhip, but even then, you can't get it swirled with vanilla anymore, which is better in the floats. Gotta go to the Poly for that.
