“Really good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Shocked but happily so to see an affordable place to eat within the Resort. Food was cooked to order. Not always super hot but good enough. It was quiet when I went and comfortable in in the middle of all the action on the 4th floor.

“Dire food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

This fast food is NOT GREAT. even the kids who love fast food were not keen to eat there again. MacDonalds is DELICIOUS compared to this!!

“Great in a pinch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

They have a great variety of options for a quick pick-up or take-out. Know what you are getting into- it's over-priced & not good food, but you can find some things to eat when it's late & you have been dealing all day. They have a great variety of drinks ( including wine & beer;))

“Everthing is AWESOME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Thank god the food was good here because you can not get into a sit down restaurant at Disney without a reservation. Really? Do you want to be on a tight schedule on vacation? Anyway, this food court is great! Lots of healthy, good tasting options. I love that you can get it to and take it back to your room. However, if you decide to stay and eat the monorail does fly by above the food court..AWESOME! I love that they have one central location (electronic kiosk) to order all of your food and they give you a pager that goes off when your food is ready! If you want exceptions to what you order just tell the staff standing at the counter between you and the cooks. Great option vs traditional food courts in most other Disney resorts where you have to stand in multiple lines for different food bays. LOVE the streamlined system here and the food is good! Ate here several times during our 2 night stay at the Contemporary! Would come here again!

“Quick service, decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Ate here for breakfast for an entire week, and hubby had lunch here twice while I was off at convention. Here's how it works - you decide what you want, go to a kiosk and punch in your order. Once you complete your order, the kiosk spits out a ticket. Pick up anything else you want that isn't hot food (like a salad, yogurt, orange juice, etc.) from the refrigerated case, and then pay. They give you a restaurant pager, and once your hot food order is complete, it goes off, you go pick up your food, and take it away either to a table or outside or to your room. Once you get the process down pat, it's easy.
The idea here is to pump out as much food as possible in a short period of time. Therefore, you do not get eggs your way. You get scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, potatoes, waffles - things that can be made and kept in a steam table. There is one option for breakfast sandwiches. All in all, the food was hot and tasted fine - no complaints. The breakfast sandwich is made to order, and takes some time, so if you are in a hurry don't go for that option.
Hubby had the flat bread pizza twice and said it was fine.
They also have a case of donuts, muffins, etc. if that is your preference. All in all, service was quick, the food was hot, and it didn't taste half bad. A decent on the go option.
Note this is right next to Chef Mickey's with the bazillions of kids in attendance, so it is not the quietest option. But heck, you get to see the monorail whiz by as you sit at a table, so how bad can that be?
