Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I have been to the All Stars resorts & like the food court. Do any of the deluxe resorts have the same type of food court?
- - Asked by Georgine from New Mexico on 2/18/2008
- Yes, but on a much smaller scale. The menus and seating areas are not as large as that offered at the All Star food courts.
The counter service restaurants at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Wilderness Lodge, Polynesian and Grand Floridian are nice.
The Beach club lacks a food-court type of restaurant. They do offer refillable mugs in their small grab ‘n’ go marketplace. We found the menu so small that we never purchased food here. Instead we would eat at the grill by the pool or at the Boardwalk. Luckily, there are many dining options from this location due to the proximity of Epcot.
The Boardwalk Resort also lacks a fast food type of place. However there are vendors along the Boardwalk, including a take-out pizza window at Spoodles. I love being able to get a slice of pizza here as I do not like the personal pizzas offered elsewhere in the resort. The Boardwalk Bakery offers some quick breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Again, this resort benefits from its location next to Epcot.
While the Grand Floridian’s Gasparilla does not have a huge menu, I love taking our meal outside to sit at a table facing Cinderella’s Castle. It’s a low cost meal with a magical view.
The Contemporary had what I thought was the largest food court for a deluxe resort with a menu with some different options. Unfortunately, the Food and Fun Center closed last summer. The Tempo Grab ‘n’ Go was opened in its place but offers a very small menu.
