5 Tips to Save on Dining at Disney World
Food is expensive at Disney, just like everything else. If you’ve read my book “Save the Big Bucks at Walt Disney World” you know the Disney Dining Plan may not always be the best value. So, here are 5 tips to keep some cash in your wallet while dining at Disney-
- Bring light snacks or PB&J with you into the parks. You may bring a small lunch box with you. Water is essential as well. Focus on items that won’t spoil in the heat.
- Eat breakfast in your room. You’ll pay out the nose for a breakfast buffet, so instead stock up on Pop Tarts, granola bars, bananas or muffins. Alternatively, eat breakfast off-site at Denny’s, Perkins or McDonalds. However, this only works if you have a car.
- Split a meal. Most portions are large enough to accommodate. Share a large soda as well.
- Adults may order off the kid’s menu at most quick-service restaurants. It’s a smaller portion size and a better value too.
- If you need a soda fix, head over to Club Cool at Epcot. You’ll be able to taste test different sodas from across the world, for free (well included in your admission..). You’ll receive a shot-glass sized paper cup, and can refill as much as your heart desires.
