No matter what, you’re likely to spend a good amount of money on your Disney vacation. That said, there’s no reason to spend any more than you have to.
If you’re looking to pinch pennies during your next vacation, one of the best places to cut corners is on food. No, this doesn’t mean you’ll be stuck packing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches everyday (though packing lunches on occasion can make a big dent in the food budget). Instead, it means seeking out the least expensive places to grab a bite while in the parks.
Of course, nobody wants to take the time to look over each and every menu to find the cheapest foods. Lucky for you, we’ve taken the legwork out of the process for you.
Check out the list below to learn the 11 most affordable places to eat inside Disney Parks.
1. Pecos Bill’s Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
Pecos Bill’s in Magic Kingdom serves up yummy Mexican eats in a quick-service setting that is perfect for those in a hurry. While this particular eatery is not really any cheaper than most other counter-service places, the toppings bar makes food go much further. With tons of delicious toppings such as guacamole and sour cream, you can take a $14.99 fajita entree for one and stretch it into a nice sized meal for two, bringing your total cost way down.
2. Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
Another place with a toppings bar worth mentioning is Cosmic Ray’s, also located in Magic Kingdom. This eatery is a great place to get a simple burger for around $12, which can then be topped with tons of lettuce, tomato, pickles, and other delicious toppings and split between two people. Another option is to share a $11.49 10-piece nugget meal, which is easily enough food for two.
