One thing Walt Disney World and Disneyland have in common is some of the best food around, yet dining at Disney certainly doesn’t come cheap. Unless your children are still of the “Eat Free” age, then you will spend a lot of money on food for them and your whole family on vacation.
The good news about the high cost of Disney food is that you rarely walk away from the table hungry. Portions for adult meals are large, and in some cases, really too large for one person to eat comfortably.
Here is today’s quick and easy tip for saving money in the Disney theme parks….
Order the Kid’s Meal
If you are eating a counter service meal, there is no rule saying you have to order an Adult Meal. Kid’s Meal choices range from burgers and chicken fingers to ham sandwiches and hot dogs. Kids Meals do not fall into the gourmet food category unless you are dining at a table service meal at one of the many fine dining experiences Disney has to offer, and because of the “9 and under” clause applies for those kid’s meals, you can’t order those for yourself anyway.
Adult Meal portions are larger for sure, as is the price, but sometimes you don’t need to eat larger portions. Maybe you had a huge breakfast and just need something to fill you up until dinner? Maybe you are one of those rare people trying to stick to your diet while on vacation? Maybe you have reservations that night for one of those real gourmet meals and need to make sure you eat what you pay for?!
