Disney Dining on a Budget


Disney Dining Budget

Mouse Chat Disney Radio – Affordable Disney World Dining

Disney World News and Reviews

Eating at Walt Disney World can be expensive, but you can eat on the cheap during your Disney World Vacation.
This question comes from Sam who wants to eat on a budget.

Option 1 – Eat off site (but you need a car).
Option 2 – Buy groceries and bring them in or order online at Garden Grocer. Then you can eat breakfast and snacks each day and even bring your lunch to the parks.
Now that saves you a bunch of cash.
Option 3 – Book your Disney Dining buffets so they are during breakfast but right before lunch. That way you can eat breakfast and then the buffet will switch over to lunch and you can grab a little lunch too.
Option 4 – If a Disney World Free Dining Vacation offer comes out book it and book it quickly.
Option 5 – Find the affordable places to eat like Earl of sandwich at Downtown Disney.
Option 6 – Make a grilled cheese with your hotel iron. BTW, This is a joke.

  1. $22/day? You can totally eat your park meals for that. Especially if you don’t eat breakfast. Or not much of one. (I usually do a high protein bar brought from home.) And you missed the best option of sharing meals! I just returned from wdw, most meals are huge. You did mention sharing a pizza. But my parents and I actually three-way split a burger and fries this trip (we are all adults). I wouldn’t do any character meals though. They are way too expensive for little payoff. But if you wanted to it would be much easier if you shared most other meals. My favorite meal is … popcorn with free counter-service water. Also, free dining doesn’t help if you’re on a budget if it increases the cost of the room…

  2. I started listening to your show this winter (Disney Dreaming through a cold winter), and I’ve been really enjoying it. I heard this week’s podcast about dining at Disney World on the cheap, and you had some great ideas. I usually bring milk and cereal as well as sandwich fixings to eat at the hotel for breakfast and some lunches. But I had a thought about character dining, which is way too expensive for the listener’s budget. How about the Chip and Dale’s Campfire Sing Along? It’s not a table-by-table meet and greet, but it’s a character experience and, as far as I’ve heard, it’s free! They can bring their own smores fixings.
