Golden Oak Outpost is a counter service spot conveniently located between Frontierland and Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Featuring fried eats and outdoor seating, it’s the place to grab some Chicken Nuggets, Waffle Fries with Queso, or Chocolate Chip Cookies.

News: ABC Commissary Offers New ‘Fast Casual’ Dining and Dinner Menu

ABC Commissary at Disney’s Hollywood Studios hasn’t often wowed us in the past. But that may be changing.

The dining spot has previously been strictly counter service in the classic Disney sense of the word. (Check out a recent review here.) You know the set up — order your food from the overhead menu boards, and then step forward with your receipt to collect your tray of drinks and food.

These days, however, ABC Commissary is trying a slightly different approach.

Billing the spot as “fast casual” for the dinner hour, the restaurant takes the same tack as one of our favorites, Wolfgang Puck Express in Disney Springs. The concept is pretty simple: order your food from a cast member and receive a pager. But unlike spots that expect you to come collect your food when the pager goes, off, your food will find you.
