    Where are affordable places to eat without a dining plan?

    Hi Mike. Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your vacation is just a few short days away! How exciting! There are countless options for you while at Walt Disney World Resort. Below you will find several of our favorite picks for affordable dining. As you are making your plans, be sure to visit the Dining section of the Walt Disney World Resort website. You will find a list of restaurants with menus and prices.

    Magic Kingdom - Be Our Guest is a great option for lunch. This is a very popular restaurant so reservations are encouraged. Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe has an amazing 1/2 Rotisserie Chicken. It's served with mashed potatoes and green beans and the entire meal is fabulous!

    Epcot - Sunshine Seasons is located in The Land Pavilion and has oodles of amazing options at affordable prices. They have a grab and go Fruit and Cheese Plate that is not only healthy but rather filling. We split one (sometimes 2) as a family and it will tide us over when we have the munchies during the day.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios - ABC Commissary has quickly become our favorite quick service dining location at Disney's Hollywood Studios. They have a great selection of delectable food including flat-iron steak.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park - The Ribs and Chicken Combo at Flame Tree Barbecue is yummy! The pulled pork is also incredible!

    For an affordable and amazing table service option, visit Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. My favorite meal there is breakfast and the Freshly Brewed Joffrey's Coffee Hawaiian Kona Maragogype Press Pot is an absolute must!

    Recently, Walt Disney World Resort introduced Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering. Check it out while you are there as it will help you maximize your time! Have a magical vacation!
