My plan is bottled water, let each kid pick out a box of granola/energy bars, fruit snacks, whatever fruit looks good. I'm planning to pack some of that for the park in case someone loses it in a ride line.

We drive, so I throw some stuff in, then if we run out, we can just hop in the car and head to Publix or Wal-Mart. We normally keep - muffins for breakfast, granola bars, fruit snacks, a bag of Chex mix or chips, Diet Coke, Sprite, beer, rum, wine, whiskey, bottled water, and whatever other snacks we pick up along the way. The granola bars and fruit snacks can be thrown in for quick snacks in the park. When we've had condos with kitchens, we typically do more - bread and peanut butter, carrots and ranch, etc.

I buy the nesquik milks that don't need refrigerated. That way I can put just a few in at a time. I also bring the individual bowls of cereal and oatmeal to make so I don't have to bring bowls. (I just hope I remember spoons.) I also bring pop tarts and cereal bars, bagels and cream cheese, lunchables, sandwich stuff, etc. Dr. Pepper, water, koolaid packs.

Alcohol though!! That is brilliant. I will have to add that to my list!!!

Darn I-phone. It sent before I finished. Also bought a container of mixed fruit. The cinnamon rolls were from the resort shop and were about $7 but there were about 8 delicious sweet rolls and a bargain since with the fruit and coffee, they made breakfast for me all week.

Can we say food issues?

I usually only take things that don't really need cups, bowls, or spoons. I just grabed a set of plastic utensils from the food court. I don't grab condiments, but I figure ice, plastic spoon, napkins, lids and the occasional use of the toaster is not taking too much advantage of WDW. Used cups from the room (mod stay) and took my extras with me when I hit the value. The values only give you flimsy plastic but the mod has sturdier cups that fit the coffee lids. Ice coffee in cup with lid and bagel/pb as I grabbed the bus and throw away the disposables as I enter the park. Quick and easy.

This last trip I actually did buy a reusable mug (on site 8 days figured if I would get my money's worth as little soda as I drink for that long of a stay), but I do not travel with it to the parks. I don't want to carry it around. I got the occasional coke or filled it with ice water at the resort in the afternoons and evenings or if I grabbed dinner or did laundry or hung out in the room.

Zone bars, low-sugar cereal, skim milk, diet Pepsi, water, coffee, bowls for the cereal. We do this at most hotels with a refrigerator, especially the water. But at Disney I really do like eating breakfast at the food court. Sometimes alone because I'm usually the first person up and i'm too excited just to lay in bed or wait for everyone else. I love reading a newspaper (now my Nook) while lingering over breakfast in a pretty place. For some reason, nothing says vacation to me and indulging in luxury like eating breakfast out on vacation. Probably cause I rarely eat breakfast out in Real Life.

We don't usually bring too much, just the basics would be soda, water, and Clif Bars; maybe apples and/or oranges, Pepperidge Farm cookies or goldfish, bottled water, some type of candy - mentos or twizzlers.

We'll usually get QS to take back to the room if we don't have leftovers from TS.

We buy milk & soy milk from the resort.

We ship down cereal, granola bars, pop tarts, chips, salsa, crackery kind of cookie things (you know junk!!). I make sure one cereal is a kind that I will like. I can't stomach frosted flakes!!! But my kids eat rice krispies so that works.

I usually bring bagels for me/kids in my suitcase. I also bring my sons butter since he is dairy allergic on the plane (in my checked bag). The last time I went they only used fleishmans unsalted & that has no flavor so why use it. I have also brought some fruit with me as well.

When we go in August, my sisters are coming. Well sort of. One lives here in CT & she is flying down 2 days early & is going to my other sisters house in Ft. Myers so they are going to drive up. I just need to give them a list of stuff to get, most importantly water!

Many visits we don't bring any food at all. I'm not big on in-room meals or backpack food...


But it can be nice to have some late night snacks. I also use in room for a few healthy options, which can be hard to find in WDW.

There was a very old, but helpful thread about foods that can be prepared easily in rooms , or using something like the food cout microwave, coffee pot. (like instant oatmeal). You may want to look it up. It maybe got nasty when folks suggested ideas like bringing crock pots.


So here are my top suggestions:

1. bottled water. Nearly always a must for us.
2. Fresh fruit, especially berries.
3. yogurt.
4. snack bars, ganola bars, chips
5. Parmalat or other shelf stable milk.. I like milk in my coffee. Parmalatype is a travel option becase it done't need to be kept cold until opened. You can buy it in 8ounces portions too. Horizon is an organic brand, and there are others.

5. leftovers. This often only works if you are like eating at your resort restaurant- but if we have any leftovers we often put them in our fridge. Sometimes we ask for our dessert 'to go'. I have also stopped in the the Main St. Bakery late at night for a muffin to eat the next morning. It does save money- in that it saves time. ZTime is money- so anything that saves vacation time, helps me get a better vacation value.

6. If we have a car, we like Whole Foods. It's not really a huge money saver, but the quality is great. The one at Sand Lake Rd is a good place to stop for a quick lunch on way from the airport. If we stop we'll get things like fruit bars/fruit, fresh juice, yogurt, a latte (they have a coffee bar), and maybe somesmall bakery item, chips of some kind. WE usually get lunch while there, they have a huge buffet.

7. Another oddball option is the Hess stations on property. Still one more oddball siuggestion is the Walgreens around WDW. Many are open 24hours. If you just want a few snacks, but are arriving late, they are an option.
