Hey gang! So for those who do not know, I am back in sunny Orlando on my Professional Internship and absolutely loving it! (In fact, I am loving it so much it so much, I have seriously considered staying for another six months…but that is a whole other story! Also, side note: I am currently Spotifying the “Frozen” soundtrack. How good are those songs?!)
Since I am back at Walt Disney World, that of course means I have been sampling all sorts of the eats throughout the parks and resorts. It shouldn’t come as a surprise I have been doing this as frugally as possible. Throughout this thrifty eating journey, I have found some fantastic options, and I wanted to share them with you all!
My favorite cheap eat is by far the Mickey Mouse Kid’s Cone at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor at MK (pictured above). For $2.99, you get an upside down cone in a bowl, complete with two chocolate “Mickey ears” and your choice of ice cream flavor. I got the cookies and cream and added melted peanut butter for $0.69…and WOAH, was it good!! Such a perfect treat for watching Wishes, and for your wallet too! 😉
Kids love the “create your own” pretzel rods at Downtown Disney!
Another one of my favorite cheap eats is too at MK. Head over to Be Our Guest in Fantasyland and took a gander at the children’s meals. I have tried both the carved turkey sandwich and slow-cooked pork, both of which will cost you $8.49. I praised kids’ option before because they are a complete meal, with an entrée, side (or two!), drink, and even dessert! Although both of these kids’ meals were delicious, I would get the pork time and time again. I am pretty sure it is the same braised pork found on the adult’s menu. It is really delicious!
Now let’s travel to my home park, Animal Kingdom! Back in the Yak and Yeti quick service you can get a “side” of chicken fried rice for $3.99. Now I put side in quotation marks because it is definitely more than a side portion! Plus, it includes real, hearty bits of chicken, and I thought it was really yummy. For its price, it makes the perfect light lunch.
And don’t forget ice water is completely FREE!
Kids meals are a great way to save! As a matter of fact, that’s usually what my Mom and I order. They are surprisingly filling and very affordable. I wrote a whole post on that for you –> Save Money At Disney With Kids Meals!
Throughout my time here, I will continue to hunt for and share my cheap eat finds. So, be on the lookout! And if you have any great, low-priced food options, please feel free to share! =)
