Eating Cheaply at Walt Disney World

Millions of people all over the globe visit Walt Disney World every year. Some people buy group packages for more savings while others can afford to spend an open amount of money dining at the various restaurants available there. On average at the many places open for dining, meals can cost up to hundred dollars per person which can easily blow the most frugal of spenders budget with the span of a day. If you want to stay within budget, while still enjoying the atmosphere and fine dining that Walt Disney World has to offer there are ways to do so.

One of the best places to eat cheap within the theme park is at the Main Street Bakery. Instead of taking part in the Character Breakfasts that are offered on the high end of the price scale, stop by the bakery instead. Many items on the menu at the bakery are priced at the low end of the pay scale and offers such things as breakfast quiche, fresh fruit and a variety of baked goods that will run you between $2.00-$5.00 depending on what you order. Frozen Lattes and other specialty coffees are priced around the same as getting them through Starbucks but you can pick up regular and decaf brewed house coffee for around $1.80. The Main Street Bakery also serves lunch and dinner all at the same low rates.

Other Walt Disney World restaurants that can fit your budget for eating cheaply are:

  • Yakitori House, located in the Japan Pavillion with meals as low as $6 per person
  • Boulangerie Patisserie, located in the France Pavillion with meals priced as low $5 per person
  • Toy Story Pizza Planet, located in the Backlot with meals priced as law as $5-6 per person
  • Casey’s Corner, located on Main Street with meals priced as low as $5 per person

You can also stay on budget by getting a kitchenette room and making your own meals and buying bulk snack items before your trip to stock the mini-fridge within the room. If you’re stay will be a short one without the need for a kitchenette room, opt to stay at a hotel outside of the theme park. In an outside park room, take advantage of the free continental breakfasts and at the end of the day eat closer to the hotel than in the theme park itself.
