Order food or bring own?

So last time we were at Disney for a week and ordered food for the room...drinks, breakfast and snacks...This time we will only be here for 4 nights then doing a 3 night cruise...so my question is should we still order food for the room or should I pack breakfast foods and snacks and buy milk and bottle water and juice at the resort or parks? How much is milk, juice and other drinks?

It depends. Will you use up whatever you plan to buy? I know my family would and if I had to stop for cereal etc I may as well get milk too.

Yes, if I buy...I will get milk, water, juice boxes, orange juice, cereal, fruit, granola bars, some other snacks...

If I bring I will bring cereal, granola bars and other snacks, so would need to get water, milk nd juice at the resorts...trying to figure out the best route to go

I would just get everything at the grocery store. It will cost less. Plus you can bring anything left on the cruise. You never know when a child may want a snack. I think you can carry on drinks on the cruise and pack granola bars in your luggage. Maybe someone will want a granola bar or cracker on the way from WDW to the cruise. Plus if you are getting off the boat it might be handy to have a granola bar or fruit leather for a child to nibble on. I know I've heard food in Nassau can be pricy.

If you have the option to just bring your own food you should do that every single time.

Do you have to pay to check bags on your flight? If not, I would just pack an extra bag for food and buy perishables on site, assuming you don't need a ton. That's what I'm doing for a three-day, two-person trip - no way I would reach the Garden Grocer minimum order, and I would rather do my shopping at home and bring the brands I know we like.

Think convenience store prices. I had to buy a pint of milk at the Dolphin at I think it was around $3. The little grocery at boardwalk was about the same price.

Just remember that you can't bring open food on the ship. An unopened single serve cereal box would be OK, but a half eaten normal size box do cereal would not. A wrapped granola bar would be OK, but not an open package of Oreos.

Thanks everyone...I think I am leaning more towards bring food (cereal, snacks) with us on the plane and just buying milk, juice and drinks at the resort...

I may invest in the Brita water bottles to bring for water as well...
