Affordable Dining at Disney
park has low cost meals in the $4-$5 range for
kid meals (adults can eat kid meals too!) and
$7-$9 for adult meals. You will find sandwich
shops, ethic specialty nooks, cafeterias, and
communal dining halls (like ABC Commissary at
MGM) which are quite reasonable and provide
plenty of food for the money.
You can often feed your whole family for little
more than the cost of one expensive entrée
at the upscale restaurants. Many times two people
can share one meal, and especially two children
can share one meal. It is often better to share
small meals during the day and eat more frequently—
especially in hot weather, plus it gives you
a cool break inside an air conditioned facility.
If you want to eat less expensively at the nicer
restaurants, go for lunch rather than dinner.
Or order a few appetizers instead of meals.
