Smile Best CS restaurants for sharing?

Hi Everyone,

We're leaving for a big family trip soon. I was wondering what the best quick service restaurants were for sharing meals. So I guess I'm looking for big portions. I know about Cosmic Ray's and the rib/chicken combo, we'll definitely be using that. Any others? Thanks in advance!

The ham or turkey sandwich at Sunshine seasons in Epcot is very large.
Probably the combo platter at Tangerine Cafe.

Breakfast at Main Street is big enough to be shared if you are on the DDP.
For 1 CS credit you get a beverage, large cinnamon role and ham and cheese croissant.

Many of the Dinners at the CSR Pepper Market are big enough to share (also assuming DDP - It is not inexpensive and not worth it OOP).

Anywhere that offers a 1/2 chicken meal. Sunshine Seasons, Cosmic Ray's, Flame Tree (that one is smoked) comes to mind.

Tangerine Cafe platters in Morocco, Starring Rolls at HS (very large sandwiches).

Wolfgang Puck Express has meals that are definitely large enough to share. We've also shared at Tangerine, Sunshine Seasons and CHH.

Cosmic Ray's definitely - the rotisserie chicken with mashed potatoes is plenty - we didn't care for the way the ribs were prepared. The Yak and Yeti counter service meals at Animal Kingdom are fairly big too but we haven't been since last year. We had sweet and sour chicken served in a large chinese takeout container so it was a big portion - enough for at least 2 adults. The sandwiches at Earl of Sandwich are fairly large and uber delicious - that's in Downtown Disney. Any of the kids meals at counter service restaurants are big enough for 2 toddlers or 2 picky/light eaters - my kids always share and we request the fries instead of the carrot sticks - hey, we're on vacation. Most of the TS kids meal are big enough too by the way with the notable exception of the pizza kids meal at T-Rex in Downtown Disney - it was ridiculously small for the price.

The chicken shwarma platter from Tangierine Cafe in Epcot is huge, enough to share.

Anything from WPE in DTD can be shared, large portions too

The chicken rib combo and the chicken caesar salad from Cosmic Rays in MK

The chicken wrap from Peco Bills in MK

I love the chicken/Rib combo at Cosmic Ray's... It should be enough to feed 2

the Yak and Yeti counter service has good chinese food. When we normally get chinese at home we all share so its nothing different for us.

I also fed my 3y/o off my 5y/o plate with most of the counter service meals...Peco Bills works for the kids however i didnt find the adult portions big enough to share.

I cant wait to try Tangierine Cafe on my next trip

Good Luck

CSR Pepper Market...
We split a stir fry THREE ways (two adults, one child). Ton of food, and hit the spot after a long day in the parks. Sure, maybe not the best stir fry I'd ever had - but better than Cosmic Rays (in my opinion).

As other posters mentioned - the Tangierine Cafe shwarma platter was also ample to feed three off us!
