When we go to Walt Disney World, our food spending typically averages under $25/person/ day , so about $70-75 daily for the 3 of us.
The Verdict We saw plenty of the characters during our time in the theme parks and really didn’t have a need to pay for a character dining package just to have time with the characters . For some families, especially those with a princess obsessed little girl, the character dining could be worth every penny.
If you want an authentic in-castle dining experience or a character meal, choose Cinderella’s Royal Table . If you want a meal that more or less captures the essence of Beauty and the Beast or you’re simply on a tighter budget, choose Be Our Guest Restaurant.
However, Walt Disney World Resorts do not offer free breakfast . If staying on property is a must for you then check out these low-cost breakfast offerings at the counter service restaurants around the World . Most Resort Counter Service have similar offerings as far as menu.
Coffee, fountain drinks , juices are all included . The only extra cost is if you order some sort of specialty beverage .
Great Disney breakfast choices for hotel rooms are oatmeal packets, Pop-Tarts, cereal and fresh fruit. If your room has a coffee maker, you can use it to heat water for oatmeal. Just make sure you pack a few plastic bowls and spoons. Another option is to have the cups of oatmeal delivered.
Your options for dinner are 1900 Park Fare , Chef Mickey’s , The Crystal Palace , Cinderella’s Royal Table , Garden Grill, Hollywood and Vine, and Tusker House . Of these options, 1900 Park Fare is the least expensive meal. Here you can see Cinderella, Prince Charming, and the evil stepmother and stepsisters.
A Cinderella’s Royal Table Reservation is one of the most highly sought after of all things at Disney World! Of course it gives you a chance to actually get inside Cinderella’s Castle . For this alone it is worth it for many Disney World visitors. The interior of the restaurant is very well done.
At Chef Mickey’s Fun Time Buffet, the Fab Five ( Mickey , Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy) join guests for their meals. The restaurant overlooks Bay Lake, as well as the 90-foot high mural by Mary Blair that has become an icon of the Contemporary Resort. The enormous buffet offers a variety of dishes at every meal.
Sharon, the bottom line is you’ll need at least $150 per day for meals, snacks and spending money . I’d probably budget $200. (That’s for the whole family.) You could get by on less, but it’s always better to have to much than not enough.
Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels are allowed in the park. However, these cannot be larger than 24″ (61 cm) long x 15″ (38 cm) wide x 18″ (46 cm) high. For your convenience, lockers for storing personal items are available to rent on a daily basis throughout the Disney parks.
