On the way to Shoney's there's a Bob Evans Restaurant on the right hand side of the road. Really good breakfasts and dinners. :D :D

a few favorites.........

I'm speaking as a vegetarian here & mother to a young teen.......
We've always enjoyed the bake potato stand outside of United Kingdom in Epcot. You can get Fish & Chips there too, I think, but the potato makes a fine light meal for us.

And nearby, is Beach Club's "Beaches & Cream" restaurant, though cafe would probably be a better name for it. I usually ordered their veggie burger (which is delicious, btw)with fruit on the side & my daughter would order the grilled cheese on whole wheat and get french fries. We'd split the fires and fruit. They also make HUGE shakes at this place that you could easily share between 3 people. It was our favorite sit down place to eat. We like the simple things, I admit it. Some folks might go for the California Grill, but I like Beaches & Cream

My favorite thing to do, and I'm sure its been said before, is to fill up at lunch, at a nicer restaurant in a park, when its cheaper than dinner for mostly the same thing. Also, you don't go to bed feeling like a glutton, and you burn off a lot of you big lunch calories while walking around the park!

In Fantasy land...somewhere by the front of where 20K Leagues used to be....there was a little pavillion type building that sells bagels, rolls, muffins etc. We ate breakfast there one day for about 5 bucks!!! Can't beat that! :D

We always stay at Old Key West. On our way to the resort, we have our TTC driver stop at Publix. That way we can buy some food to make our own meals. My husband gets really tired of Disney food really quick. At least this way we can cook spaghetti, chicken, or whatever we want. Just like a home-cooked meal!!

restaurants close to Homewood Suites?

We will be staying at the Homewood Suites in Lake Buena Vista in November (group of seven) and will not be renting a car. Are there any reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance(not too long of a walk - we have three kids and a slightly disabled adult!) that anyone knows about?

Do you know what roads homewood suites is situated off of? Because if it's anywhere near where i mentioned there are tones of things in walkind distance if you can find out! I would remember the name of the main road we stayed on palm parkway but there was a main cross road i forget the name and i know there were hotels down a little closer to shoneys and homewood suites kinda rings a bell!

Tony's MK

In the MK there is a place called Tony's. It is located in the circle at the entrance of the MK. 2 adults and 1 child $20. But we're talking a great brkfst. They cook to order, like a real sit down restaurant. The flair is also very good

The last time we visited Disney we got a refrigerator for our room. We went to Gooding's right by Disney main gate and bought some cereal, milk and donuts for breakfast in our room. We also bought some snacks for the evening. We would then eat a larger meal in the parks in the early afternoon when it was still lunch prices. Then we would have snacks in our room when we got back in the evening. This saved us a ton of money from the other times we have visited WDW.

WE got our best meal

From the Wal-Mart!!! In the back corner of the store is the Deli and they make a 3" foot sandwich w/ turkey,ham,cheese, and roast beef[that was so yummy] on it for $4.99. WE took this back to the room and cut it into 3" sections and had one of the most memorible meals we had at WDW!!!
