I found this on a website: MEAL PLANNING Eating at Disney World can get very expensive. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks can really add and deplete your funds quickly. Here are some suggestions on saving some money. 1. Bring food from home. Have a suitcase just for your food items. You can bring pop tarts, cereal, bread, granola bars, breakfast bars, bagels, peanut butter, jelly, juice boxes, water bottles, and any other non perishable items that you can have for breakfast, lunch and snacks. 2. Eat breakfast in your room before heading to the parks. Also everyone in your party should bring a small pack to carry a snack. A fanny pack is big enough and does not get to be a burden to carry. 3. If you stay at a Disney Resort be sure to use their refillable mug system. Pay approximately $10.00 for a Disney Resort mug and refill it with coffee and soda for the entire time of your stay for free. If your there for 7 days and you have just 2 cups of coffee a day that would cost you approximately $35.00 for the week. Well worth the $10.00. Remember this also applies to soda. 4. Instead of having lunch at a Disney park purchase a TURKEY LEG there. What is a TURKEY LEG?? Well, just that but it is a BIG turkey leg that is delicious and is big enough to feed a couple people. The cost $4.50. Buy some chips or fries and have a great low cost lunch. Believe me you will not be disappointed. 5. Bring your own water bottle to the park. Freeze it the night before. (Rent a refrigerator in the hotel room approximate cost $10.00 per day or you can bring a cooler or buy a cheap Styrofoam one that you can throw away before you leave if your flying, and fill it with ice that you can get free at the resort.) Each water bottle costs $2.50 per bottle so just use your water bottle and refill it at the water fountains in the parks. 6. Book a reservation and eat dinner early 4:00-4:30. Many restaurants allow you to select a meal from the dinner menu and pay lunch prices. This also is a better time to eat as it is not crowded and when the majority of people do eat then you will have less wait time in the attraction line. 7. Stick to your Meal Plan. Actually write it out day by day and follow it. It really adds up when you go off the plan. I calculated that my family spent $140.00 for ice cream bars in a 7 day period. At $2.50 a pop it sure adds up. This money could of bought us 1 1/2 to 2 nights of dinners.
