Planning My Disney Counter Service Restaurants at Disney World


Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe - What's for Dinner Moms

Yes, I am a planner when it comes to Walt Disney World.  And, well I guess in life too.  I make lists, upon lists, upon lists.  What we will eat, what we will eat, what rides we want to go on, what characters the kids want to see.   I do this to keep everything straight in my head and make a good plan ahead of time.  To me that is the way my family works best.  Many are spontaneous vacationers at Walt Disney World.  I am a planner.

We are going with a total of  6 adults and 2 children.  My parents, my family and my brother and sister-in-law will be joining us for 6 of our 9 days in Florida.  I had to keep things kind of neutral to cater to everyone’s tastes.

When we visit Epcot we love to eat our way around the world.  Yes, I am raising two little foodies too.  We purchase one counter service combo meal or an item that is particular to that country.  We only get one and the four of us try the meal and then rate it on flavor, uniqueness and overall presentation.  What’s interesting is that the “winner” the past 3 visits has been the Schwarma Platter in Morocco.  My children never would have tried lamb if it hadn’t been for Disney World.

So far our plans are:

Day 1 – Sunday   –  Animal Kingdom – Flame Tree Barbecue (dinner)

Suggested Meal:  Ribs and Chicken Combo
