3. Dining in the parks
Eating in the parks at Walt Disney World is expensive, whether you eat at a table service restaurant or at a quick service restaurant. Meals tend to be more costly at a table service restaurant than at a quick service restaurant. And if you eat at a restaurant and enjoy a character experience while dining, you will likely spend even more. Make no mistake, though. The food is wonderful in the parks, and the experiences alone are usually worth the extra money. Meals in the parks can be responsible for one-fourth or more of your total vacation expenses.
