    What is the average cost per day for food for 1 child and 1 adult in the park? I want to plan on getting whatever we want but have no idea the cost.

    Hi there Rainbow!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You and your child are going to make some of the most unforgettable memories at the Happiest Place on Earth. While most people get excited about seeing Sleeping Beauty Castle, meeting their favorite Characters, and enjoying attractions, I am equally as excited about trying all of the amazing foods at the Disneyland Resort. There is something for everybody no matter your tastes or budget.

    How much you spend really depends on how often you snack and whether you want to dine at Quick Service or Table Service restaurants in the parks. You are able to view the menus and prices of all restaurants online prior to your trip and can even search based on $, $$, $$$, and $$$$ categories. Quick Service restaurants throughout the parks are generally "$" which mean meals will be $14.99 or less per adult. Table Service Restaurants, which usually will require a reservation, are "$$" which means they are $15-$34.99 per adult. Many snacks in the park will be $7 or less. A classic Dole Whip treat, for example, is about $5. A signature cocktail or other alcoholic beverage can cost about $9-$14. You can see that how much you spend each day on dining can really vary!

    Know that no matter how much you spend, the eats and treats around both parks are guaranteed to be delicious! I am just as happy thinking about eating a classic Disneyland Corn Dog as I am a formal meal at Blue Bayou Restaurant.

    I hope this helps, and feel free to return if you have any other questions. Have a Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah day!
