Food tips

Ran out of baby food? Disney Parks got you covered.

Babies gotta eat too so if you run out of baby food or formula, you’ll find a baby care center at all the parks. Plus, you can always go back to the general store at your Disney resort.

Wash your hands.

It’s common sense I know but trust me, after hours of running around the parks all day and grabbing on to those dirty safety bars on rides, you’ll forget how nasty your hands truly are. Stay clean my friends! Especially nowadays.

Have picky eaters, go to a buffet!

There’s no better place for everyone to eat whatever they want. Plus, unlimited food ain’t too bad either. Hollywood and Vine is a pretty good choice if you’re looking for traditional American buffet fare (carving station, salad bar, etc). But my favorite is Trails End! All you can eat barbecue ribs, brisket, fried chicken, and strawberry shortcake. Mmmmm.

Replace dinner with a meal at a lounge or bar.

Some bars and lounges found at most resorts actually offer some really tasty options and bar snacks. So if you’re not looking for a traditional meal but instead want to to snack on tasty goodies, give this a shot. Wine Bar George at Disney Springs for example has insanely tasty small plates. Pair it with a wine and you’re golden.

Snacks can be an alternative to meals, especially breakfast.

You don’t necessarily have to eat a traditional breakfast to get filled up. The parks usually sell fresh fruit, muffins, and breakfast pastries which are perfect breakfast substitutes.

Eat breakfast as your biggest meal.

If you’re on a tight budget, be sure to eat breakfast as your biggest meal because it’s generally the cheapest meal. So be sure to opt for a breakfast buffet to truly get your money’s worth.

Ask for the prices of “entree-only” at quick service restaurants.

Generally at quick service restaurants you can order your meal without any sides. The prices on the menu generally reflect the combo price so be sure to ask the cast member (cashier) about their entree only prices.

Take a free restaurant culinary tour and get free samples of their popular selections.

By taking a free food tour at select restaurants like Jiko, Boma, and Sanaa at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, you’ll get free samples of their popular foods.

Skip the citrus swirl and opt for the Dole Whip.

The Citrus Swirl sucks. Dole whip is far superior so don’t waste your time or money on that bitter garbage.

Book a Club level resort room and get free continental breakfast, drinks, wine/alcohol, desserts, and hors d’oeuvres.

Want to save on breakfast and drink costs at your resort, while living it up – go Club Level. (And yes, I understand that the costs are factored in, but there’s no harm living like a King.)
