Food for Thought

Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort is a wonderful place not to be missed on your next vacation. With over 100 places to shop, free entertainment offerings and unique experiences like The Void virtual reality, and some of the best dining options in all of Central Florida, Disney Springs has become an all-day destination. And remember, parking there is always free. If you're looking for somewhere to get a quick and inexpensive bite to eat between activities and window shopping, we've got the list for you.

Chicken Guy! from Guy Fieri
One of the newest dining destinations to hit Disney Springs, Chicken Guy serves up freshly breaded or grilled chicken tenders and incredible chicken sandwiches that are not only out of this world, but are also well within your budget. With the care and attention that celebrity chef Guy Fieri has given the menu, you get more than the usual fast food fare here. Thanks to tasty sides like Mac Daddy Mac ‘n’ Cheese, and Loaded Fries smothered in SMC (super melty cheese), you will not walk away hungry. With over 20 different flavors straight from Flavortown to dip your chicken fingers into, the boss is definitely the sauce.

D-Luxe Burger
Bring your appetite to D-Luxe Burger, because the food here is anything but small. You'll have a hard time deciding between all of the different specialty burgers, topped with all types of ingredients – like the Apple Harvest Burger with apple whiskey jam, smoked sausage, Gouda and grilled onions. Order up a Classic or Ultimate Duo for two, and you'll get two premium burgers, an order of fries and two drinks. It's a great way to save money without skimping on portions. Save room for one of their famous artisanal gelato shakes, or grab one to go on your way out. D-Luxe Burger participates in Mobile Order, so you can skip the line and order your food right from the Disney World app.

Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza
Create your own modern-day pizza masterpiece at Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza. Select from over 40 traditional (and some not-so traditional) toppings and sauces to create your own personal favorite. For a flat rate, you can add as many toppings as you like, so let your imagination go wild. Blaze also offers signature pizzas like the Meat Eater, BBQ Chkn, White Top and more, all easy to order and ready to devour. Compliment your meal with a side salad and finish it off with a decadent dessert like their famous S'mores Pie. Blaze is a great place for families, and they'll happily split toppings on half and half of your pizza to appease the picky eaters in your group.

Earl of Sandwich
Purveyors of the perfect sandwich, Earl of Sandwich invented the sandwich and has been perfecting it for 250 years. Try The Original 1762 for something classic, a hot roast beef sandwich with cheddar and horseradish sauce. The All American is a new favorite with turkey, cheddar, cranberry sauce, tomato, lettuce and ranch. They serve up the best variations of all traditional sandwiches as well. Plus, they offer salads, soups and wraps, all for reasonable prices, without skimping on portions. Share one of their large cookies or cupcakes for dessert, like the red velvet or triple chocolate. You can stop in early to grab yourself a breakfast sandwich or made-to-order omelet, too.

Wolfgang Puck Express
Enjoy an elegant dining experience and gourmet food, for much less than you'd expect. Wolfgang Puck has become known for artisanal pizzas and flatbreads, like the classic Margherita or the California-style Barbecued Chicken. Try the Roasted Mushroom or Pesto & Goat Cheese pizzas, which pair perfectly with a glass of wine. You can also find artisanal sandwiches, pastas and other hearty entree options here. Plus, they offer a unique kids menu, with tasty dishes like Spaghetti, grilled chicken, pizzas and of course chicken tenders and mac & cheese. If you're here in the morning, the Breakfast Pizza is unlike anything else you've had before, and should not be missed.
