View Full Version : Suggestions for Snack to Bring....

HI! Last July when my DBF and I went to WDW, we decided to bring snacks with us. We brought Granola bars and Pop tarts for days we were not going to have a character breakfast. We also brought coffee cakes and hunts pudding. If you'd like to bring chocolate pudding, buy the hunt's brand because it does not need to be refridgerated. We kept the cool in ice buckets, so we would have cool snacks when we returned for our afternoon naps.

I would also suggest bringing small rubbermaid water jugs. They have small ones that fit into large fanny packs, so you don't have to carry them around the parks.

Any other good food and drink tips?

For quick meals on the bus or in line I bring Power-bars or other meal replacement bars. Also, litle packages of fruit snacks and peanut butter crackers travel well in back packs.

beef jerky is good because it is a snack that provides protien. Also trail mix hits the spot!

We found that the Lance-type peanut butter crackers - or even Ritz Bits - tend to crumble if not eaten the first half day in the pack. (We must be rough on them!) Anyway, we go to Sams/BJs/whatever & get Combos. A big box in indiv. packages. The pretzel part doesn't crumble as easily. Also, a big box of fruit snacks. We like the Farley brand ones - cheaper & a little softer than the name brand ones. Each person takes a pack of each for a half day. If we don't use them, they're still edible later.

Our first trip I brought PB (small jar) and got jelly at the food court. We bought bread at DD Grocery. Second trip I brought Pop tarts, PB crackers, cheese n crackers and snacks. As my kids got older they wanted a more substantial lunch. After snacking all morning though we can still get away with a hot dog, pretzel or pizza slice. We only sit down for dinner every night. This is what works for us. Also we bring empty bottles and put powdered drink mix in them, then you fill it with water at the park and not carry heavy bottles all day long.

Marshmello treats hold up very well,and take the place of Expensive candy.
Individual packets of peanuts also help round out the protein with the jerky and peanutbutter. :D
