The Ultimate List of Cheap Eats At Disney World

 The Ultimate List of Cheap Eats At Disney World



The Ultimate List of Cheap Eats At Disney World Parks

A Disney World Vacation can be very expensive. I really wanted to make a list of inexpensive meals and snacks to help families make the experience more affordable. First, I have a list of money-saving tips for eating at Disney World. Then, I compiled the ULTIMATE List of Cheap Eats (and meals you can split) At Disney World Parks, Resorts, and Disney Springs.


Money-Saving Tips for Eating At Disney World

  • Order A Kid’s Meal – Adults can order Kid’s meals at Disney Restaurants. The portions are a decent size – with an entrée and one or two sides AND a drink. The kid’s meals are usually eight dollars or less at quick-service restaurants.
  • Let the Kid’s Split an Adult Entrée – If the kids are tired of chicken nuggets from the Kid’s Menu and prefer a more grown-up meal, two kiddos can split an entrée. The cost may even be less than the cost of two Kid’s Meals.
  • Split A Meal With Large Portions- As seen below, there are some meals options that can be split between 2 people. Pecos Bill & Cosmic Ray’s both have condiments bars to bulk up your portions, making the meal even larger for two people.
  • Bring in Your Own Snacks – Disney allows outside food and drinks as long as they are not in glass containers (the ONLY exception being baby food). This is really helpful to save some money and to calm the kiddos down when they are thirsty and HANGRY (especially if you are standing in line for a long time). I don’t like to bring really heavy things, so Larabars, Goldfish Crackers, Trail Mix, etc. are perfect. And, I put them in an inexpensive plastic tub so they don’t get smashed in my bag.
  • Cups of Ice Water are FREE – Ice water is FREE. Simply ask for a cup or bring your own travel mug to fill.
  • Eat Breakfast in Your Hotel Room – Many bring Breakfast Bars, Cereal, Oatmeal (paper bowls & spoons) for breakfast for the hotel room. This works best in a hotel room with a microwave and a fridge. Many also bring other items (sandwiches, mac n cheese cups, etc.) for lunch and/or dinner to save money too.
  • Plan Your Trip When Free Dining is Available – This seems to be controversial. Either you love it or hate it. But many swear that this is a big money-saver at Disney World. The Free Dining Plan is usually announced early in the year and is available certain dates between August and December. You can check Disney’s Special Offers Page for updates on free dining or packages that include a dining package.

Money Saving Tips (con’t)

  • Bring Starbucks Gift Cards – You can use Starbucks Gift Cards at Starbucks locations at Disney Parks. They can be used for drinks, snacks, and even souvenirs. You can buy discounted gift cards, ask for them as gifts, or earn them on Survey Reward Sites.
  • Ask for a Large Drink on Dining Plan – On the dining plan, you will be given a medium drink when you order. But, you can ask for a large and get it at no extra charge.
  • Eat at Table Service Restaurants for Lunch Instead of Dinner – If you have your heart set on eating at a table service restaurant (like the new Be Our Guest), it is less expensive to eat here for lunch. Or, for another option, stop in for an afternoon dessert and a cup of coffee.
  • Order Pizza at Your Disney Resort – Parents swear by the pizza at the Disney Resorts. After a long day at the parks, just order a pizza, wait for it to be delivered, and share it with the family for a relatively cheap dinner. Family sized pizzas usually run about $17.99 plus tax and tip.
  • Get Free Breakfast – If staying off-site, find a hotel that offers a free breakfast. Or, find a hotel with a kitchenette or an Airbnb to make your own breakfast (or lunch or dinner).
  • Get Discounted Gift Cards – Discounted Disney Gift Cards can be purchased at Sam’s Club or BJ’s. Discounted Rainforest Café or Landry’s (can be used at Rainforest Café & Yak & Yeti Local Foods Café)  gift cards can be purchased on If you are going to the movies while on vacation at Disney, you can also find AMC Gift Cards at a discount on (It’s not food, but I just thought of it since we were mentioning discount gift cards).
  • Save Snack Credits for Epcot – If on the Disney Dining Plan, you can save and use most of your snack credits in Epcot and drink and snack around the world. There are so many options in Epcot, and this allows you to sample a variety of international foods and drinks. You really could try lots of snacks at any park. Many snacks are $5.00 or less. You could try a Dole Whip, Popcorn, Fruit or Vegetable Cups, Cinnamon Rolls, etc.

Cheap Meals & Snacks

I tried to find meals that would average out to about $10.50 or less, per person. I looked for snacks that were $5.00 or under.

(If you are on a Disney Dining Plan, you might want to use your credits for the more expensive meal & snack options – and get more bang for your buck.)
