QS Arrival Dinner Suggestion

Only 7 days until we arrive! This girl is pretty excited. I’m traveling with my 3 men: DH (1st trip), DS19 and DS17 (both their 6th time). It will be my 7th stay.

Our flight should land at 5pm on Oct 31. I’ve booked a Quicksilver SUV to pick us up at the airport and take us to ASMu, with a grocery stop on the way. I’m estimating that we should be in our room by 7pm (correct me if my guess is off). We will be starving for sure.

While I don’t want to book a TS as we have a early morning the next day, I’m looking for a QS option other than the ASMu food court that will get our party into the WDW vibe. I was thinking a MK area resort QS meal with a monorail ride. Any suggestions on where to eat in this area?

If you’re not getting to your resort til 7pm, and will be starving by then, I would definitely reconsider going anywhere but ASMu food court.

Plan on it taking you an hour to get from there to a QS location at an MK resort. You’ll need to bus to MK, clear security, and then boat, monoral, or walk to a monorail resort.

I would plan on it taking 45 minutes to an hour to go to DS.

An exception might be if you take an Uber/Lyft/Minnie Van but even then you’re looking at a solid 30 minutes before you arrive at a QS location.

If I were to arrive at 7pm starving, I would be quite happy to eat at the resort food court.


PrePandemic the QS at All Stars was decent, w/ a lot of choices. They can still have specials that are good. I agree w/ OBNurse about the hour and time involved to get anywhere else. But if you are intent on venturing out I have to recommend Capt Hooks at the Poly and then maybe you can catch the fireworks sitting on the beach eating a dole whip. Check the show times first though.

I second this.

How much travel time do you want to commit? An uber to the Epcot resorts would give you multiple options.

Honestly I’d probably just grab a food court pizza (they’ll make it hot and fresh) and enjoy the movie by the pool or something at the resort.


I think time will be against you, unless you are fine with eating at 8:30pm. Have you considered hitting Disney Springs before your get to hotel? If you have cold stuff, usually you can get a styrofoam icechest at grocery’s (at least around here). If not, I would just hit the food court or Mc Donalds. Personally though, we like Jersey Mike’s at the airport to start and/or end out trip.

With your arrival time that late, I’d just eat at ASMu food court.

Got my expectations realigned. I’ll see how we feel once we check in and decide then where to eat.

If you’re able to swing it timewise, I recommend heading to the campsite for P&Js takeout and perusing (maybe even trick or treating) the campsite decorations. This is one of our favorite Christmastime arrival night traditions and we’ve heard that Halloween is impressive too.
