The two Princess breakfasts are insanely expensive, but the surroundings are impressively castle-y and at least a photo package is included! The Character breakfasts where you can meet princesses are:. The buffet is very substantial, and all drinks — coffee, milk, juice, etc. This also allows us to take advantage of the lighter crowds in the morning at the Magic Kingdom. Also, because the restaurant is not open for lunch it starts to get quiet as people with earlier seating times leave, and ALL of the characters gather together in the waiting area for group photos of just your family, which the servers will gladly take with your camera.
This has happened both times we have eaten there, and so I have photos of just my family with Goofy, Minnie, Mickey, Chip and Dale! As Lisa points out, since the crowds are lightest first thing in the morning, this strategy has the added advantage of allowing you to enjoy the attractions without long lines — instead of spending prime time eating breakfast!
This restaurant has a revolving cast of characters, often including Pluto and Goofy. Thanks to Jen D and Jackie F for info. In a few cases, an expensive table-service restaurant and a nearby counter-service location offer the same food item for two very different prices. At a counter-service location, the item will be typically be presented without any garnish or sides and will be served on a paper plate.
Here are some hints note that prices were correct as of July , but are subject to change at any time:. Many of the entrees and combo meals served at Walt Disney World restaurants include a large amount of food. If you are not big eaters, consider splitting an entree or combo meal between two people and possibly ordering an extra side dish or appetizer to share.
We have done this many times and the server always cheerfully complied. In fact, at sit-down restaurants, usually the split entree was brought out on separate plates for us. Another good option for light eaters at table service restaurants , and one that works well for someone dining alone, is to substitute an appetizer for your entree. For instance, order two appetizers instead of an appetizer and an entree, or order an appetizer instead of an entree, thus leaving yourself room for dessert. If you need just a little more food, possibly ordering an extra side dish or appetizer to share will be enough.
Likewise at all Character meals and dinner shows, adults and kids 10 and up must pay adult prices, because you are paying for the entertainment as well as the food. In the parks, the counter-service menus often list only complete meals, such as a burger with fries, sandwich with fruit, entree with corn on the cob, pizza with side salad, etc. A little known fact is that you can order anything you want a la carte! This is not advertised — you have to ask. With several kids this adds up fast. My kids were definitely willing to put the money towards an ice cream later in the day rather than have a rather useless plastic box which would have been a pain to keep up with all day.
You must purchase the plan for your entire stay and for each person staying in your hotel room. Standard packages also include park tickets. Ticketless packages used to be reserved for Annual Passholders, but now anyone can get one. Often these are substantially cheaper than Disney restaurants, but still have attractive theming and great food.
In the section below are a few locations that we personally recommend because they offer very tasty food at an exceptional value, in what is usually a high-priced resort area. There is a great location in Disney Springs that offers very reasonably priced takeout food you can eat in the restaurant, as well. Since Disney Springs has many places to sit and enjoy the view along the lake, this is a nice option on a day when the weather is pleasant.
Note that prices are subject to change at any time. Annually for the entire month of September, participating high-end Orlando restaurants feature three-course, prix fixe dinners at an exceptional value. Save money at some Disney World-area restaurants by purchasing discounted certificates from Restaurant. The easiest way to find nearby restaurants is to search zip code , and then narrow your search to within 1 mile or 5 miles of that zip code.
The Kids Eat Free Card may be a good investment if you have young children and plan to eat off Disney property frequently. To see a full listing, visit KidsEatFreeCard.

Most chain restaurants also have online email clubs , which are well worth joining, because they often send out great coupons.

A few are on International Drive , which is further away. Of the off-site restaurants below, only those located in Crossroads Center would be at all walkable from Disney property about a mile from Disney Springs.

Basically this is a rewards card: Levy Restaurants operates several Disney Springs restaurants: Then present your membership card each time you eat at a participating restaurant. You will receive 1 point for every dollar you spend gratuity excluded. Any restaurant can give guests an AAA or CAA discount if they choose, but to be listed on the website and tourbooks they have to pay a fee. So some restaurants just choose to offer a discount on request, figuring that word of mouth and social media will get the word out.
Thanks to Marlene for info. You will need to drink a lot of water when you are at Walt Disney World. This can add up to dehydration all too easily.
We are among them — we find it musty-tasting and unpleasant, though we will drink it if necessary. Disney allows it, and you will save a small fortune. One option is to stop at one of the local supermarkets or drug stores and pick up a case of bottled water after you arrive. Obviously this is no problem if you have a rental car. Most of the limo companies will make a short stop for you, as well. The fountain on the left hand side is filtered much better and tastes much like bottled water. You fill them with ice from the hotel in the morning, it melts as the day goes on and you sip ice cold water off the attached tubing all day.
I discovered this gem while my hubby and all of the money was on Buzz Lightyear with my son and I was dying of thirst.

No problem at all! They even gave me a large cup! From then on, it was ice water for my family — which was not a hardship because we got tired of carbonated drinks quickly! Thanks to Dwayne O and Marjorie T for ideas. Starbucks VIA packets would work well, too. She was able to get FREE hot water at the counter service restaurants in the theme parks. Beware of the Beverly: Milk and juice are NOT included. The RFID tagged mugs allow you to refill the mug at any resort hotel beverage station. If you are staying longer than 14 days, you can re-activate a mug for 14 more days by paying the same fee.
As of this writing, the iced tea, coffee, and hot cocoa machines are not on the RFID system, though the rules are still the same. The Disney Water Parks offer refillable mugs that are not on the same system as the resort refillable mugs. The following locations offer self-serve soft drinks, so you can go back and get refills without paying extra:. As far as we know, these are the only counter-service restaurants at Disney World that are currently offering self-service sodas. Beer is much cheaper at the Speedway gas stations on Disney property , than in the Disney resort hotel shops.
Lovers of Starbucks coffee drinks will be happy to hear that you can now order all Starbucks drinks lattes, macchiatos, Frappucinos, you name it at the Main Street Bakery on Main Street, U. There are also two Starbucks locations in Disney Springs. Consider bringing or buying a few items so that you can make breakfast in your hotel room.
Other items to consider: Your coffee maker can be used for more than coffee. You can run it to make hot water for tea, hot chocolate, etc. You may want to choose a hotel that offers a refrigerator in the room, or inquire whether your hotel will provide one for a small fee. We have put a pint of milk or bottles of water on ice this way. Some hotels — such as many all-suite hotels and the Disney Vacation Club resorts — offer a small microwave. That gives you even more breakfast options, such as hot cereals, and allows you to warm up sweet rolls, etc.
Making meals at your hotel may not be very relaxing, however, unless you plan ahead to reduce the hassle of shopping, cooking, and cleaning up. If you do not have a kitchen in your room, however, we strongly discourage using any appliance that produces high heat , such as a toaster or tabletop grill.
Using such appliances is a serious fire hazard and can endanger you, your family and other guests in the hotel. Suites that include kitchens have the properly-rated electrical outlets, ventilation systems and most importantly, fire extinguishers! Regular hotel rooms do not. What we found to be very good was the jar of peanut butter! The hotel we stayed at had free apples at the check-in counter. In the mornings we would spread peanut butter on the apples for a yummy breakfast. I had granola bars, mini packages of cookies and crackers, gum, beef sticks, etc.
It is also a good idea to plan to pack good treats for the plane trip as the airlines do not feed you on the trip anymore and the airports serve very expensive food. If you are thinking about bringing food from home, be aware that the Transportation Security Administration TSA suggests that you do not put dense food items such as peanut butter, chocolate bars, etc.
Your luggage is much more likely to be opened and searched outside of your presence if you check dense food items. Thanks to Mary S for the reminder. A better bet is to ship non-perishable food items in advance to your hotel. Address the package as follows:. Thanks to Dave C for the reminder. Soft drinks and beer are exceptionally expensive.

If you will have a car or are willing to pay for a taxi , there are plenty of supermarkets near Walt Disney World. There are also some newer grocery delivery services available in Orlando that we have not yet had an opportunity to try, but may be worth considering. Instacart delivers groceries and other items to Walt Disney World resorts from several local stores, including Publix. Safeway also offers delivery to Walt Disney World resorts, though of course only of Safeway products.
And Amazon Prime Now , available only to members of Amazon Prime , delivers groceries and other popular items. Reviews of these services are somewhat mixed; the experience seems to depend quite a bit on which specific driver you end up getting. Usually, any hotel that has kitchens or kitchenettes with real refrigerators in the room will be set up to handle food delivery.
Also keep in mind that if you order liquor, the hotel may not be able to accept the order on your behalf. Check first before ordering beer, wine or spirits. We chose Garden Grocer over WeGoShop because it has exact products and prices on its website, which we found easier and more convenient. Tipping the delivery person is at your discretion. WeGoShop requires you to submit your own very specific list of items, including sizes and brands.
The order form can be found on the DVC members website. Find out more details, as well as our tips and tricks for making Advance Dining Reservations. Best Bets Really inexpensive meals in the theme parks are hard to find, but listed below are some cheap options for real food that will fill you up. Basic Tips — Disney has three basic levels of food outlets: The next best option is usually to order a platter at a quick service restaurant and ask them to leave off some or all of the side items. Below are some of our favorite inexpensive meals in the four parks.
