Travel Agent Plans Cheap Day at Disney World for Foodies

  • 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.

As a travel agent at Marvelous Mouse Travels, I always get asked about the best food at Disney World. 

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.

Tapas are a great option when you want to try a lot of food on a budget.

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. 

End the day at Epcot with small bites ‘around the world’
