    Planning a trip with friends and trying to be economical. In your opinion, what's the best quick service meal on a budget?

    Hi Danielle!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and bringing me this great question! One of the topics I am most passionate about is dining, and more specifically the Quick Service Restaurants at Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, and the Disneyland Resort Hotels.

    One great Quick Service restaurant I love, especially for breakfast, is White Water Snacks in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. They serve some really inventive and delicious entrees. Currently they have breakfast Baked Chilaquiles served with avocado and Breakfast Tater Bites smothered in eggs, bacon, cheese, and salsa.

    Over in Disneyland Park, we love the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe for their famous Jolly Holiday Combo of decadent grilled cheese and tomato soup. Across Main Street, U.S.A. you can grab my favorite entree of Fried Chicken at the Plaza Inn. We have found this plate big enough to share if we plan on grabbing other snacks throughout the day making it a really cost-effective meal.

    In Disney California Adventure Park there is a plethora of Quick Service Restaurants. We love the Sourdough Bread Bowls at the Pacific Wharf Cafe which are very filling. In Cars Land we always have to stop by Flo's V8 Cafe and the Cozy Cone Motel for some eats and treats. I recently had a Taco Cone that was a spicy and fun take on a traditional taco served in a bread cone at the Cozy Cone and some amazing Brioche French Toast at Flo's.

    All of these Quick Service options are budget-friendly and satisfying! I just know you are going to have some fantastic meals. Wow, I just got really hungry making these recommendations! Have a Fantasmic day!
