    A couple of my friends and I are planning on going to Disneyland for a post grad trip together and were trying to plan the costs of everything and we were wondering how much we should set aside for lunch and dinners per day?

    Greetings Wendy!
    What a great idea! A post-graduation trip to the Happiest Place on Earth is a perfect way to celebrate your accomplishments!
    I completely understand your question about budgeting for food and drinks while visiting the Disneyland Resort. I usually tell folks that the amount of money they should set aside for food, really depends on the type of dining experience they wish to have.
    I say this because the Disneyland Resort has an incredible array of dining options, everything from popular fast food items like a delicious corn dog from the Little Red Wagon on Main Street, U.S.A to an exquisite Herb-crusted Rack of Lamb at the Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square.
    There are also fun character dining experiences available, like breakfast at the Plaza Inn, where you can enjoy Mickey waffles and take pictures with your favorite characters.
    All this to say, if you're going for a more budget-friendly experience, I would recommend you set aside an average of $20-$25 per meal. You can also get away with $10-15 per meal this way:
    *Toasted Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Basil Soup at the Jolly Holiday Bakery Café on Main Street,      U.S.A.($10)
    *Enchilada Platter at Rancho del Zocalo Restaurant in Frontierland ($12)
    *Mega Pepperoni Pizza slice at Redd Rocket's Pizza Port in Tomorrowland ($8)
    Keep in mind all prices are subject to change but I just wanted to give you an idea.
    I hope this helps.
    Have a magical time!
