It’s time to head to the front lines again and fight the theme park wars. And in honor of this week’s one-year anniversary of The Simpsons‘ Fast Food Blvd’s grand opening, this fortnight’s battle is going to be waged around food.

Only one side can be victorious, and you’re the one to determine the outcome.

Previous poll

What’s the most important element in a theme park land?

Unsurprisingly, the biggest answer, by far, was “attractions (rides, shows, etc.),” with 302 out of 535 votes (56%). And in second place was “overall design of the land (layout, architectural details, music),” which nabbed 225 votes (42%). What was surprising, however, was the dead-last finisher: “dining (food quality, design of venues, etc.),” which garnered only three(!) votes. Apparently, theme park guests like to shop more than they like to eat.

I think as sacrilegious as it is to some Universal has better consistency of food, some of the best and worse meals I have ever had were at Disney.

Moe’s tavern at universal is the best I’ve found so far for park food

This debate will never be settled. Disney was made for families. Simple as that.

Disney food is better. I’ve been to both parks many many many times since I’m a resident of Florida

Universal all the way! Where else can you get a chicken and waffle sandwich? A Krusty Burger? Butterbeer! Plus a Disney burger you can taste the hate and the corporation!

You people must not know what good food is!!!! We have annual passes to both, by far universal over rates Disney 100%. At least at universal you get “real” food vs Disney you get window service. I must say Epcot does have “some” good food as well as downtown Disney. Universal has The Palm at Hard Rock (amazing place $$$$). Universal is more economical over Disney especially if your a pass holder. We’ve gotten by far more discounts at universal than we ever got at Disney. Disney is so overrated!!!!!!

Disney – Yes, some of its restaurants are definitely higher quality than Universal’s… but they are also 2-3 times the price!Universal does not have the equivalent of the California Grill, that’s one of the highest quality meals I’ve had. Also one of the most expensive. And I can afford Universal’s sitdown restaurants. Mythos would be considered Islands of Adventure’s nicest restaurant – a burger there is $10.99. At Hollywood Studios nicest restaurant, The Brown Derby, the cheapest entree is $30. That’s comparing apples to oranges. Universal wins hands down on exclusives. I buy a Duff beer everytime I’m in Universal,… Read more »

Universal with $1.00 beverage refills and popcorn, beats disney hands done. Overall food, disney has a lot more to offer then universal, so Disney wins food !
