Today, we are taking in lunch at one of Disney’s newer counter service locations, Landscape of Flavors at the Art of Animation Resort.
Landscape of Flavors took Walt Disney World by storm when it opened a couple of years ago. It was similar to other value resort counter service spots and food courts, in that it offered quick service food from various stations. But right from the start, Landscape of Flavors offered fresh flavors and customizable options that set it apart.
And with it, there came a bit of a wait.
Today, we’re heading back to see what is the same, what has changed, and if the wait times for food that we feared have come to pass.
Let’s head in!
One of the most interesting things about Landscape of Flavors is its entrance. You actually access the restaurant through the Ink and Paint Gift Shop.
Go past the wares, and here you are!
Seating is ample, to say the least. More than 500 spots await you once you receive your food, and there are more tables and chairs outside.
The beautiful lights overhead are painted to represent scenes from each of the four films highlighted at the resort: Finding Nemo, Cars, Lion King, and The Little Mermaid.
I know that was a pretty quick tour of the surroundings, but I promise you there’s a lot to look at in the ordering area! So let’s get to it.

The difference here is that the options have an international flair that’s a little more interesting than some other spots.
But don’t worry; there are flavors to appeal to picky and discriminating eaters alike.
During breakfast, stations change up with morning meal options. Today, we’re taking a look at a few of the stations you’ll find for lunch and dinner. I was visiting for lunch at the time.
The name of the game here is customization! Nearly everything can be made according to what you like. You can order a custom salad from the Salad Station.
I absolutely love their Create Your Own Pasta Station! I had one of my favorite meals here on a recent trip.
