    Re: What is your favorite counter service restaurant in Epcot?

    I love the Sunshine Seasons Food Court in the Land Pavilion. There were tons of options for everyone in my group. Last time I went I was able to time in right and get a Soarin' fastpass and have lunch there right before. I think I spent about 12 dollars for a meal and a drink.

    Oh and on another note I have heard you get huge portions from the Moroccan counter service. My friend went 3 times in her last trip she enjoyed it so much!

    My favorites are Sunshine Seasons in the Land pavilion, Yakitori House in Japan, Lotus Blossom Cafe in China and the fish and chips stand in the UK.

    I'm not usually a Chinese food fan, but I loooove the orange chicken from the Lotus Blossom Cafe in China. And the portions are gigantic..I almost always split it with someone.

    Does the funnel cake kiosk in America count? Because if it does... I love funnel cake.

    Re: What is your favorite counter service restaurant in Epcot?

    I love the Sunshine Seasons at the land. I also like eating at the Electric Umbrella, I think mostly because on my first trip it rained pretty much the whole time when we were at epcot so we spent a lot of time in there and it brings back memories of being a little six year old. I like pretty much of all the counter service places at Epcot except Morocco and the Lotus Blossom and the America place.

    Great question. Counter service at La Hacienda de San Angel, Yorkshire County Fish Shop, Tangerine Cafe and Yakatori House. My wife and I have done our own version of the Food and Wine festival during off season times and explore all the counter service spots.

    We always go to the Electric Umberella for lunch, though the American Pavillion still has the best hot dog hands down. If you want to do something a little different, China has a walk up window that you can order take out from.

    Yorkshire Fish and Chips. I don't hear a lot of people mention it, but my wife and I love it.

    Also, we usually don't care for Japanese take-out food, so we were pretty surprised by how much we liked Yakitori House.

    I agree with everyone else that Sunshine at The Land is pretty good with a lot of choices, but I confess it's been years we went there, so not sure of it's current state.

    Sommerfest no doubt about it! Love, love, love their brats and pretzels. Their crumb cake is delicious also. It's always our first place to eat when going to Epcot.
