- As an experienced Disney travel planner, I’ve made the perfect itinerary for foodies on a budget.
- There are tasty breakfast options at Magic Kingdom and fun lunch offerings at Disney Springs.
- Epcot is the perfect place to enjoy an affordable snacky dinner around the World Showcase.
It’s one of the most enjoyable aspects of a Disney vacation, but it can also get pricey.
Here’s my plan for budget-savvy foodies to get the most out of a one-day trip to Disney World for around $100:
Start the day early at Magic Kingdom by splitting 2 of my favorite snacks
Sharing is a great way to try lots of different foods at the parks, and I’ve found a few delicious snack-priced items that are big enough to split.
The cinnamon roll at Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland is delicious, huge, and only $6.79. You can also grab a LeFou’s Brew (frozen apple juice) to accompany your roll for $6.29.
Next head over to Sleepy Hollow for one of the fresh-fruit waffle sandwiches. Again, the portions are large, and you can split this with a friend or two for $8.49.
Next head to Disney Springs for shopping, snacks, and a tapas-style lunch
If you need a snack to gather energy for souvenir shopping at Disney Springs — the free-to-enter entertainment, dining, and shopping district at Disney World — start with the loaded fries at the Daily Poutine.
They’re covered in queso blanco, iceberg lettuce, pico de gallo, bacon, and garlic-ranch dressing for $9.49. Four of us recently split this snack and were left feeling full.
If you’re looking for a sweet snack, a cookie from Gideon’s Bakehouse is large enough for a few to share.
They cost $6, and you may have to wait in line, but they’re insanely good.
After some shopping, head to Jaleo by José Andrés for lunch.
It’s one of my favorite foodie spots in Disney Springs, and it’s great if you’re on a budget because much of the food is served tapas-style.
You can get a filling lunch for about $35 to $40 a person.
