    With 4 kids where's the c cheapest p!ace to eat in all 4 parks

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Patricia! Thanks for stopping by to bring us your question.

    Patricia, as a budget-conscious mama, I'm all about stretching my Disney dollars as far as they can reach! While always leaving a little wiggle room for some fun splurges, saving where I can is my go-to to a most magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Patricia, your best bet for inexpensive meal options will be at quick service restaurants. These counter service locations are a good bang-for-your-buck, and in true Disney fashion, the options are fun and plentiful! The average kid's meal cost ranges a little under the $10 mark, and these often include a drink! There are also many healthy choices available. Just look for the Mickey Check Meal options that meet Disney nutritional guidelines.

    Did you know you can also pack a lunch to bring with you? This is something my crew does to save even more! We pack snacks, sandwiches, bottles of water, all in light and disposable containers so we can eat, toss, and go! We'll do this a few days during our visit then have a special Character meal one evening as a splurge. It ends up being such a special surprise for the kids. It's the things they come home talking about for years to come. That's the power of Magic!

    I hope this helps you as you plan a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Don't hesitate to visit us again for more planning tips, advice, or with any additional questions!

    See ya real soon,
