    Alysia and I are going to WDW in May. This is the first time in many, many years that I am NOT making any ADR's. No table service meals at all. We have some old favorites as far as snacks and counter service meals that we like but I am looking for suggestions of new things to try or maybe even things we've never bothered to try.

    What do you like to eat in the parks? Could be an entire counter service meal or bits and pieces here and there.

    They have chicken & waffles??? That's AWESOME! I have ALWAYS wanted to try that! And my daughter will be over the moon to hear about ANYTHING with Nutella! Thanks for the information!

    I enjoy the Yak & Yeti counter service - the fried rice is tasty, plentiful, and inexpensive (if you're on the meal plan, you can use a snack credit). I pair that with an egg roll and have a meal.

    And, yes, I know I'm in the minority here - but I do STILL love those turkey legs (quiet in the back!).

    I love the way waffles smell but I am not really a fan of them. I DO want to try the nutella and fruit waffle though. And I born and raised in the south but I do not get the allure of chicken and waffles.

    Alysia is a weirdo and does not like funnel cake :unsure:

    You should also look for those bento boxes with the fruit and cheese in them. They were heaven, especially on a hot day!

    We like things from Tangeirine Cafe in Morocco, the udon noodle soup at Yakitori House, the pretzels from nearly anywhere, the bratwurst at Sommerfest, the sandwiches at the bakery in Norway, and usually things from France. Since they've changed the counter service in France, I'm not sure how the selections are now.

    We're not fans of the counter service in China, or US.

    In MK we like Columbia House, and Cosmic Rays selections, usually. There is also the little place near Haunted Mansion that has fruit, corn on the cob, and baked potatoes. They make a nice change.

    We're not fans of the turkey legs.

    Not a huge fan of the food on offer in AK or DHS, so can't comment much on that. We did have an appetizer in Yak and Yeti and it was nice. I think I'd like to try something from the walk up but not sure. We've tried Pizzafari, and it was ok.

    Oh, and Sunshine Season's is always nice.

    We used to really like the food court at All Stars but haven't been there in a couple of years! :eek:

    Mmmm I love fruit and cheese. Where are they in the parks?

    I am not a fan of turkey legs either. They do smell good and I admit they are tasty but the tendons gross me out.

    I'm looking forward to sampling around Epcot since they have added the kiosks for the flower and garden festival! I'm also hoping it won't be horribly humid like it is in Sept/Oct

    Really? Do you have a favorite meal there?

    For me, AK is SO HOT, I have to be indoors where it is air conditioned to eat :sorry:

    It's the sweeter bbq. Now I think I remember. I am not a big fan of that. I DO remember they had corn on the cob and I *think* cornbread. Or maybe I am confusing it with Whispering Canyon :lol: that is what happens when you get old

    I quite like the chips and guacamole along with almost any margarita in the cave :) Alysia is not such a fan of the tequila......
