If you’ve purchased (or acquired free!) the Disney Dining Plan for your next Walt Disney World vacation, you’re probably wondering how to maximize the Plan, getting the best and most satisfying food for your DDP dollar. The value of a Quick Service meal includes the cost, of course, but also the quality of the food and other variables like how it can save you credits, cash, time, or stress. We take all of those bits into consideration when we bring you our recommendations for DDP Quick Service values.
Here we take a look at nine of the best Quick Service values on the Disney Dining Plan!

Let’s say you’re in Disney Springs and you really want to try some of the wine and cuisine at Wine Bar George.
The Basket at Wine Bar George
But you’ve only got a limited amount of time to spend in Disney Springs. That’s where The Basket at Wine Bar George comes in!
The Basket offers a Quick Service component to Wine Bar George — the new wine bar in Disney Springs headed by none other than Master Sommelier George Miliotes. This spot boasts everything you could want to create a picnic “basket” inspired by a Master Sommelier… including wines on tap served by carafe or by the glass!
Let’s find out what’s in The Basket!
The atmosphere is… well, quite simple!
The Basket is essentially a Counter Service window, tucked right underneath the upstairs outdoor terrace seating of Wine Bar George.
Wine Bar George is set to open in a matter of days in Disney Springs!
Guests will be welcome to visit the wine bar starting at 5:00 pm on Saturday, May 19th.
The next day, May 20th, the wine bar will begin operating for what will be its regular daily hours of 11:00 am to 2:00 am.
The opening of Wine Bar George will mark the debut of the only wine bar in the Sunshine State owned by a Master Sommelier — that, of course, is George Miliotes!
Wine Bar George will be opening soon in The Landing of Disney Springs. We’ve been eagerly eyeing construction of this spot pretty much ever since it was announced! After all, it was big news when it was revealed that Wine Bar George would be coming to Disney Springs, as it is headed up by Master Sommelier George Miliotes.
Though we’re anxiously awaiting the opening date to be announced, we do have some news that we can share right now… The Basket at Wine Bar George has just popped up on the Disney World website! [Read more…]
