Islands of Adventure – Seuss Landing:
Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-pendous

What: Large indoor cafeteria
Where: Across from the Caro-Seuss-El
Price Range: $

Under that enormous droopy big top is this humongous fast food emporium themed to a fare-thee-well with circus imagery a la Dr. Seuss. This is one of the most delightful restaurants in all of Islands of Adventure — clever, colorful, comfortable, and imaginative as all get out.

To one side are two complete cafeteria lines; to the other a series of booths disguised as a circus train transporting a weird variety of Seuss creatures, like the Amazing Atrocious, “a beast most ferocious.” In between is a spacious seating area under the twin big tops from which swing a nutty trapeze artist and a spinning mobile of Seuss characters. Periodically, a train from the High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride chugs by overhead bearing a load of happy passengers.

The food is designed with kids in mind, which means personal-size pizzas, both pepperoni and cheese, and various pasta dishes served with bread sticks. Grown-ups might prefer the Chicken Caesar Salad or the Fried Chicken Platter. A kids’ menu features pasta and chicken meals, and desserts include Dippin’ Dots ice cream.

At one end of the room you’ll see a zany pipe organ that is sometimes played during peak season. There is limited seating just outside the doors if you’d prefer to dine al fresco.
