Okay, the thread about Restaurant Marakesh vs Chefs de France just made me think of something that I’ll see what everyone else thinks about. I’ve seen the comment before in other places also that Disney doesn’t do a good job with making the international restaurants “authentic” in terms of the food, either to simplify preparation or to cater to people who like their food a little more bland than some ethnicities might.
I think, if we’re truly being fair, Disney doesn’t do a great job with American food either, at least in terms of quick service. Quick service is supposed to be comparable to fast food (if not a little better), right? But can you name one item in any American style QS at WDW that is the best you’ve ever had? And I’m talking about comparing to the best fast food you’ve had, not anywhere, not homemade. Did you ever hear someone say “That burger at Cosmic Ray’s is the best ever!”? I haven’t. I was trying to think of one, but I really couldn’t. The best I could do is a regional one. If you live outside the areas of the country that are known for BBQ, Flametree is probably the best you have ever had for fast food. But I lived in the south for 6 years and I had a go-to bbq fast food place.
I’m not just trying to troll. I seriously want to know, what QS items are better than readily available fast food anywhere in the country? I bet international visitors who go places other than WDW say the same thing. “You know, they don’t really do a good job of making authentic American food!”
