    If we are not staying on the grounds of Disney, how do we eat at the parks without going broke?

    Hi Sheryl,

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip.  We usually carry in a soft, portable cooler bag with drinks and snacks for my entire family.  This keeps the munchies at bay and saves on concessions inside the parks.  (Be sure that your cooler does not include glass containers or alcoholic beverages.)  You can also share entrees at either the counter service or table service restaurants.  Portions tend to be generous and includes plenty for two or more.  You could also order appetizers in lieu of entrees. Counter service establishments tend to be less expensive than table service restaurants.  Another thing we do is eat "in between" meals ( a late lunch/early dinner, for example).  This works great at buffet restaurants (Crystal Palace, Hollywood & Vine, etc.) and cuts down on the number of meals we eat inside the parks.

    Have a magical trip!
