Back into the Fray! WDW Parks Quick Services are Still on OUR Minds! VOTE!

What?!  Are you kidding me!  We’re going to jump right from the frying pan and into the fire?  Really?!

Uh, yes.  Really.  You did such a great job handling Disney’s Magic Kingdom last week that it made sense to jump right into the “Big Battle”!  The “Big” Parks Quick Service “Battle”!

Starring Rolls Cafe

So, what’s the challenge?  Well, we’ve “crowned” four “champions”, haven’t we?  Each park has its “king”.  See?

Magic Kingdom: Columbia Harbour House
Epcot: Sunshine Seasons
Hollywood Studios: Starring Rolls Cafe
Animal Kingdom: Flame Tree Barbecue

Which of these Parks Quick Services will we name “king amongst kings”?  Well, before you jump to judgement, we’re not going to make it so easy for our “champs”.

What do I mean?  Well, first, these four eateries will have to dispatch some former foes.  This competition includes the Final Four restaurants from each park’s tournament.

If these sixteen Quick Services want to be named our overall favorite, they’re gonna have to work for it!

By the way, each of the four groups below includes a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finisher from their particular park’s Final Four.  Each group includes one representative from each of the four WDW parks.

I tell you this because I split the poll up as fairly as I could … and still none of today’s votes will be easy!

So, there you have it.  VOTE, my friends!  Which one of these worthy restaurants should become the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite WDW Parks Quick Service?!

Vote for ONE in each group.  The Top 2 in each group will advance to our Semi-Final!

The All in WDW Readers’ Top 5 Disney’s Animal Kingdom Quick Service Restaurants!

Hey, all!  I still owe you an All in WDW Readers’ Top 5 Disney’s Animal Kingdom Quick Service Restaurants!

If you remember, a week or so ago, we “re-elected” Flame Tree Barbecue as our Favorite Disney’s Animal Kingdom Quick Service by an overwhelming margin.  Who can forget that delicious pile of barbecue?

Flame Tree's BBQ

Yum!  So, what restaurants round out the rest of our Top 5?  Well, without further delay, here’s our official Top 5 Disney’s Animal Kingdom Quick Service Restaurants …

  1. Flame Tree Barbecue
  2. Pizzafari
  3. Yak & Yeti™ Local Food Cafes
  4. Restaurantosaurus
  5. Tamu Tamu Refreshments


Everyone LOVES Barbecue!

Well, at least it seems like EVERYONE loves barbecue.  This entire “tourney” was over about 10 minutes after it started!  Talk about quick!

Flame Tree Barbecue absolutely destroyed the field on its way to becoming the two-time, TWO-TIME, All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Disney’s Animal Kingdom Quick Service!  Yes, it won our support last year as well.

Flame Tree's BBQ

Perhaps the biggest surprise of yesterday’s final round was Pizzafari.  It barely slipped into the finale with a meager six (6) first-round votes but, somehow, it knocked off two of 2013’s favorites – Yak & Yeti™ Local Food Cafes and Restaurantosaurus.  Hmm.  Interesting.

Well, I’ll say one thing for us … or, for Flame Tree, that is.  We’re very consistent.  Flame Tree “smoked” the competition so badly in 2013 that I never carried through with a traditional All in WDW-type poll.

Take a look back at 2013!  I just named Flame Tree the winner and continued the tournament to decide 2nd Place.  Uh, that was Yak & Yeti™ Local Food Cafes, by the way.

Dining options, for both Table and Quick Services, are pretty limited in the Animal Kingdom.  It will be really interesting to see what new locations spring up with 2016’s AVATAR-Land expansion.  And, will they be good enough to “take out” the BBQ?

Until then, if you’re in the kingdom of animals, and you’re craving a pile of barbecued chicken, ribs, or pulled pork, Flame Tree is the place to go.  Hey, it is the only place to go!  All of their meat is seasoned with a “special” BBQ rub, and it is DELICIOUS!


VOTE! It’s the Animal Kingdom Quick Service Finale!

Already?!  Yes, just like that, we’re “quickly” down to a Final Four!  What a “quick” poll this was!  Puns intended.


Take it “home”, my friends.  VOTE for ONE!  If you go to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and can choose only one spot for a quick lunch, where are you going?

Which restaurant is the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Disney’s Animal Kingdom Quick Service?  VOTE!

Quick! Vote for your favorite Animal Kingdom Quick Service!

I have come to a bit of an un-magical realization.  If I don’t get us back on track pretty soon, we’ll have tons of polls left undone by the time we reach the end of the year.  In short, we really need to get back to work!

But, then, the good thing about Animal Kingdom Quick Service options is that there are so few that our “competition” will end as … well, as quickly as the restaurant serves us food!

Dawa Bar

Unlike Epcot, which will be up on the schedule pretty quickly, itself, Animal Kingdom sports just eight options.  There they are, below.  Carve them into a Final Four for us, OK?

You know how it goes.  Vote for ONE in each group.  The Top 2 from each group make the finale!
