Alright, I confess it...I'm an addict!!

When I came up with my DTD day and found out that I was able to do 2 TS meals (counting WPE as a TS) I wondered whether or not it could be done in the parks. A QS snack breakfast, and TS lunches and dinners INCLUDING snacks and guess what? I did it!! Again, because I'm a water drinker...I didn't put in any beverages but I did have enough left over for all but the Epcot day for 2 snacks so a trade could be made for those who like soda, juice or milk with their meal.

So, here's what I came up with...

ANIMAL KINGDOM
Kusafiri Bake Shop Bagel with Cream Cheese $2.76
Yak and Yeti Lettuce Cups $16.17
Rainforest Café Pita Quesadillas $12.44
Snack Carts Mickey Bar $3.50
Harambe Fruit Market Jalapeno Cheese Pretzel $4.57
Daily Total $39.44

HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS
Fairfax Fare Cereal with Milk $3.40
50's PT Café Stacked Sandwich $14.93
Mama Melrose Cheese Flatbread $14.93
Starring Rolls Brownie $3.50
Villans in Vogue Carrot Cake Cookie $3.14
Daily Total $39.90

MAGIC KINGDOM
Main Street Bakery Croissant $2.44
Liberty Tree Tavern Vegetarian Pot Pie $16.17
Plaza Plaza Club $14.31
Aloha Isle Dole Whip $3.40
Snack Carts Popcorn $3.46
Daily Total $39.78

EPCOT

Chefs Des France Quiche Lorraine $16.12
Rose and Crown Fish and Chips $19.91
Snack Carts Mickey Bar $3.50
Daily Total $39.53

Now, as you can see...this Epcot day has no breakfast and only one snack but if you were to head to Beaches and Cream for dinner...the Epcot day would look something like this:

EPCOT
Sunshine Seasons Bacon Egg and Cheese Croissant $6.38
Chefs Des France Croque Monsieur $17.37
Beaches and Cream Chicken Sandwich $15.55
Kringla Bakeri Lefse $2.12
Sommerfest Pretzel $4.57
Daily Total $39.61

Man that was fun! I think a summer trip with this much air conditioning and these lighter options would be just the ticket for me. In fact, it might be too much food unless I was sharing!

Stayhomemom77,
I noticed that your two table service meals, on the AK day were both appetizers with water. Would that be enough food for you?

On a couple plans, and in real life, I will get two appetizers instead of an entree, but other than the Cobb salad at Brown Derby (which used to be listed as a lunch entree when they had a lunch menu) I do not know of any appetizers large enough to be a complete meal for an adult.

Yet, you could be like my Aunt Ady who eats like a bird.

I loved your Magic Kingdom day that managed two sit down meals, breakfast and two snacks. Amazing! Gotta love those Dole Whips.

I've never had the Pita Quesadillas at RFC so can't say for them, but I love the lettuce cups at Yak & Yeti and could easily make a meal on them. That platter is huge! I'm a big eater, but still never finish them.

Eyore's Wife: I don't eat like a bird at all under normal circumstances, but in the heat and humidity I drink so much water and "feel" the heat so intensely that I find my appetite really changes.

I've seen the lettuce cups and I know they would be more than enough for a meal for me at Yak and Yeti and as the PP said, maybe even too much. I've never had the Rainforest Cafe Quesadillas but after a snack of a jalepeno stuffed pretzel, I don't think I'd be overly hungry.

But to cater to those who might want/need an actual entree for dinner, I've adjusted the day accordingly:

ANIMAL KINGDOM
Kusafiri Bake Shop Bagel with Cream Cheese $2.76
Yak and Yeti Lettuce Cups $16.17
Rainforest Café Natural Burger $16.17
Snack Carts Mickey Bar $3.50
Harambe Fruit Market Orange or Apple or Banana $1.37
Daily Total: $39.98

Haven't finished this all yet, but wanted to say thank you. My plan is to try to actually 'inventory' what we eat on our May trip to see if we can come close. We only have 2 TS meals planned (Prime Time for lunch & Crystal Palace for supper) as we are not a heavy TS group. I assured DD's boyfriend he would be able to eat at $45 per day (I know - slightly over your budget) so I would love to be able to equate to $40-$45 per day average per person. He is a bit more of a bottomless pit so he plans on cereal in the room too, but DD & I will be either food court or park for breakfast.

Hopefully a month from now I can post our summaries & keep within the budget!

Mickey2013, since prices fluctuate so frequently, and restaurants change their menus so often, this thread is not sticky worthy.

Jgates, $45 a day is totally "doable" even for a hungry guy. My bottomless pit son tends to run around $50, but that is tied to eating four square meals plus snacks per day.

If he enjoys counter service, here are a few ideas at the $40 level. If he went to $45 he could easily add another good sized snack, or dessert and drink.

Animal Kingdom: $39.56
Tamu Tamu for breakfast. Egg, ham, and cheese bagel sandwich with coffee. $8.61
Harambi Popcorn Kiosk for snack one. Cinnamon roasted almonds. $3.73
Safari Turkey for lunch. Smoked turkey leg, chips, iced tea. 12.86
Dino Bites for snack two. Ice cream sandwich cookie. These things are huge. Two big cookies and three scoops of ice cream. $4.25
Flame Tree BBQ. 1/2 smoked chicken, two sides, water. $10.11

Hollywood Studios: $40.03 (oops three cents over)
Writer's Stop. Double Chocolate Muffin, mocaccino. $7.07
Anaheim Produce. Pretzel with cheese sauce. $4.79
Starring Rolls. Black Forrest Ham Sandwich, fruit, Napoleon, iced coffee. $14.99
Rosie's Cafe. 1/3 pound angus cheeseburger with fries or slaw, soup of the day, water. $12.87

Epcot: $39.49
Sunshine Seasons: bacon, egg, cheese croissant and espresso. $9.46
Yakatori House. Tonosama combo, miso soup, green tea. $14.88
Boulangerie Patisserie. Napoleon. $3.94
Sunshine Seasons. Roasted Pork Chop with herb potatoes and fruit compote, water. $10.86

Thanks for the great new suggestions for hungry guy! He has threatened to only eat breakfast in the room & starve the rest of the day. My DD has threatened him that he WILL BE EATING OR ELSE. If it comes down to that I will pay for his food to make sure he eats, LOL, but he works so he can easily pay $40-45 a day himself. His only costs are airfare (already paid), park ticket & his own food. And I did volunteer to pay for the 2 TS meals we are doing (Crystal Palace supper & Prime Time lunch).

I too

I too love this thread. I have just read the entire thread and it does not even matter for me since
#1 i am aleady on the DDP
#2 I dont really like most of the foods mentioned.

but my family is strictly simple meall eaters. Hot dogs, chicken strips(do they still have these or are they all nuggets now?) pizza, burgers, steak, chicken breast sandwiches or chicken parmesean or 1/2 chickens, fries, corn, mashed or baked potatos alot of times we get a full pizza at our resort, like the all star resorts and it feeds 2 of my kids for like 16.00. and for breakfast we are good with scrambled eggs, mickey waffles, omletes, muffins, bagels, breakfast sausage, bacon, breakfast potatoes, fruit, etc. snacks we love the simple stuff, popcorn, ice cream bars, soft serve, muffins, we love muffins hence the 2 categories.

So I am not as good as you guys, and we dont neccesarily need any TS options, but try to make a budget with my simple foods, I think it would be pretty easy since these are usually the cheapest options. Plus 1 meal a day we usually (but not always) eat at the resort, usually fast breakfast or like I said earlier the Pizza for 2. We usually get 2 pizzas for the 4 of us with leftover snack for later. But gather a group of teenagers and most will enjoy these choices.
I think the 40.00 per person per day is an easy do. Thats 160.00 a day for our family, and using these menu items I think I could get it closer to 120-140

thanks for the great thread
