Epcot boasts a plethora of amazing dining opportunities within the theme park, giving you several options for enjoying tasty food.

First of all, there is often a festival going on at Epcot, during which you can find a large assortment of scattered kiosks that sell tapas inspired from around the world.

Each Festival’s theme informs the types of dishes presented and you can happily spend the whole day eating at as many of these locations as you have time to visit.

Not only that, but because of the many nations represented in the World Showcase, Epcot claims the prize for best table service dining out of any of the parks.

Because of this variety, you could happily spend hours immersed in the surroundings of just two or three of your favorite World Showcase pavilions, filling your belly with all their goodness.

However, there is a third option– The “have your gateau and eat it, too” option.

This option allows you to immerse yourself in the cuisine and surroundings of as many pavilions as possible in the shortest amount of time, by taking advantage of the incredible Epcot quick service restaurants!

Not only that, but these options are a great way to decrease the cost to go to Disney World!

What are the Best Quick Service Restaurants in Epcot?

If you can’t get a last-minute Disney Dining reservation or just want some grab-and-go fare, we’ve got you covered.

There are so many options across all different types of restaurants, so these are the best quick service restaurants at Epcot that you can’t miss!

In between enjoying the best rides at Epcot, you can grab a snack or quick meal with these suggestions!

And if you’re traveling with fussy eaters, be sure to check out our list of the best Disney World restaurants for picky eaters in each of the parks.

Sunshine Seasons

This has to get mentioned right off the bat, because it was one of our family’s favorites when I was growing up, and it still holds true!

Sunshine Seasons is a bright and airy indoor food court within The Land pavilion, full of made-to-order and grab-and-go food options.

It’s definitely the best choice for quick service in Future World, and the restaurant has a fabulous variety of dishes, making it ideal for a family with kids.

It’s also a great way to eat healthy at Disney World, because there are so many options.

Much of the food is grown within the pavilion, which also makes it more fun and provides a cool learning experience for kids.

Since the Land Pavilion, where Sunshine Seasons is located, has two major attractions inside the building, this is a good place to rest in between the rides as you wait.

You can check out the Sunshine Seasons menu here.


The Mexico Pavilion envelopes you as you enter the left side of the World Showcase. There is the iconic pyramid, which houses the most exciting elements of the pavilion, but as you wander through the thoroughfare, buildings on your right house more cultural offerings.

La Cantina De San Angel is a great choice for a quick taco plate or another authentic Mexican dish. This is another family favorite for us!

The seating is outdoors, but sometimes you can take a table in Hacienda San Angel, while the restaurant is closed.

Both restaurants have a gorgeous view of the World Showcase Lagoon!

You can check out the menu for La Cantina de San Angel here.

Regal Eagle Smokehouse

The Regal Eagle (not to be confused with the Regal Beagle from Three’s Company, ha!) is the new quick-service option at the American Pavilion.

It’s a smokehouse that celebrates American barbecue with sauces from all over America. All the best barbecue, from Texas to Virginia is represented here. Even St, Louis style, which Walt Disney himself must have enjoyed at least once or twice as a young boy.

Check out the Regal Eagle menu here.

Katsura Grill

I love Katsura Grill. Japan has SO MANY great dining options in its always exciting pavilion, and this is one of them.

Sponsored by Mitsukoshi, a Japanese department store, the gorgeously detailed pavilion is, at a glance, a huge gift shop. But there is so much more, including the food!

Katsura is at the summit of a small lift past koi and banzai, and a beautiful garden that overlooks the lagoon below.

Here you can grab quick service sushi and noodles. It’s perfect for those who love seafood or Japanese food!

You can check out the menu for Katsura Grill here.

Yorkshire County Fish Shop

As one of the most intricate pavilions offering plenty of browsing opportunities, the United Kingdom Pavilion does well to offer a quick eating solution.

Although Rose and Crown provides a lively atmosphere and fantastic food, the fish and chips served at this next-door fish shop is just the thing for a park guest on the move.

This one-stop is a favorite and a must-do for many returning Epcot fans! Check out the menu here to get a taste of the offerings.

Refreshment Port

As a surprise, I’ve included Refreshment Port. Not just for the heck of it–it really is one of the best, but you could easily pass it without giving it a second thought.

Its generic appearance and unfortunate location make it more of a last-second stop for guests who haven’t planned anything.

However, they’d be in luck, because Refreshment Port often has unique menu items that come and go periodically.

Refreshment Port is also unofficially the Canadian quick-service option because they regularly offer at least one poutine option there.

You can check out the Refreshment Port menu here.
