Sometimes I hear people lament how there is a lack of table service restaurants at the Disney Value Resorts and some of the Disney Moderate Resorts. I used to be one of them because when I travel with my kids, I would rather the food be brought to me instead of me having to get the food in a food court. I always felt that when I’m on vacation, I would just rather sit down with my kids and relax. As a mom, I cart the food around enough at home. Moms deserve a vacation, too, don’t they?
Well, I did say that I “used to” think that way. Now that my kids are older and I don’t have to cart them around with the food, I have a totally different viewpoint on this. When we stayed at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort, we ate at Riverside Mill several times, and I must say that I really enjoyed the variety. Yes, I enjoyed the variety so much that I bought the same thing more that once. If you haven’t tried the “Create Your Own Pasta”, you really need to! I LOVED being able to pick-and-choose what I wanted in my pasta! And while I was making wild pasta choices, my kids were able to satisfy their kid palates with Macaroni and Cheese and Cheese Pizza.

I just took pictures of a couple of the menus hanging up. There were so many food options that if it hadn’t been for the Create Your Own Pasta, I would have had a hard time choosing. I guess maybe I could turn into a food court person. Maybe even get the Quick Service Dining Plan? Ok, I guess I might miss a few of my table service meals that way, but I will definitely have to work in a few more food courts on my next trip.
What about you? Do you like the food courts? If so, which one is your favorite?
