Sounds fun
It's a lot of fun and it saves us a ton of money. And this way we aren't beholden to Disney as they inordinately raise food prices, drink prices, and do silly things like ban straws and other plastics.
And when you eat off reservation you can get unlimited refills on your drinks.

Maybe, If we don't feel like driving we eat at the hotel quick service...but usually we get a much better meal NOT eating on Disney property and it's right outside the gate.

Throw in Pizza Ponte as well.
Pizza Ponte is also excellent. I don't understand how Blaze can stay in business when Pizza Ponte is right there and MUCH better.

It's not that Blaze is bad... it's just average. I can get it anywhere. Pizza Ponte's Sicilian style pizza is so good that I actually went and got a slice one night after eating dinner somewhere else because I was craving it.

Chicken Guy! is not great. It's not bad, but from what I could tell it exists just to sell you sauces. The chicken by itself is fine, but it basically needs dipping sauce to be good, which isn't a sign of quality. Good fried chicken doesn't need sauce.

Chicken Guy has chicken tenders. Not really the same as "Fried Chicken".
Chicken tenders are literally fried chicken.

Seriously though, my point is that the breading/seasoning on them is nothing special. It's certainly not bad, but I'd much rather eat at Pizza Ponte or Polite Pig if I'm doing quick service at Disney Springs. I don't think D-Luxe Burger is all that great, but it's better than Chicken Guy too.

I wouldn't discourage people from eating there or anything; I just wouldn't direct people to it either.

Actually I have. Some of the best you can get. I never said chicken guy was the best fried chicken in the world. But it is some of the best quick service food you can get at Walt Disney World.
It's not quick service style but you can ask for in a to go box, Prime Time Cafe fried chicken at DHS. Really good and you grab a park bench by Echo Lake and people watch. You could also watch the 3pm parade but no longer.

I was just teasing.

I definitely disagree though -- I had Polite Pig, Pizza Ponte, Chicken Guy, and D-Luxe Burger all last week and Chicken Guy brought up the rear among those four just in Disney Springs quick service rankings. Polite Pig and Pizza Ponte are both light years ahead of Chicken Guy (Pizza Ponte is the best overall). I personally liked D-Luxe Burger a bit more as well, but it wasn't significantly better and probably a wash with Chicken Guy overall when you factor in the price difference.

Interestingly I would rank them polite pig, chicken guy, pizza ponte, D-luxe burger.

I would have had Polite Pig as #1 before this most recent trip, but my food there wasn't quite as good this time (still very good overall though). It was also my first time having Pizza Ponte and their Sicilian style pizza was wonderful -- the crust was perfect. I actually went back there the night I had Chicken Guy just to get another slice of the four cheese.
