Budget issues: meals


Budget issues: meals

Share a meal at Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh.

Those planning their Disney Vacation with an eye on the budget shouldn’t forget to think about meals.

If you’re staying and eating in “the World”, expect to spend copiously to feed your family. The moderate and value resorts have food fairs, but prices still add up fast when there’s, say, four of you.

A better option, if you’re staying at a Disney World resort, may be to buy the “Dining Option” with your “Magic Your Way” base tickets: this can be a bargain (though it depends very much on your family’s eating patterns.) Read more about the Dining Option, Magic Your Way.

Guests who have cars can save money by eating at restaurants outside their resort; there’s even a McDonalds within the Disney road system, near Blizzard Beach.

Guests with cars can also save money on food by staying off-property at inexpensive suites with kitchen facilities. And some off-property hotels and resorts offer free meals for kids (when kids dine with a paying adult.)

Wherever you stay, and even if you cook your own hot-dogs every night: don’t forget to splurge once or twice in the Disney World parks on Character Meals with all-you-can-eat buffets, or on memorable and fun themed restaurants.
