    Hi, we got the quick service meal plan which only allows us to get two meals and a snack. My daughter and I want those to be for lunch and dinner but we do want breakfast but disney is so expensive when it comes to meals what should we do for breakfast?

    Hi, Rebecca!  I have several good breakfast tips for you that will help you stay on budget.

    You will find counter service breakfasts available at the resorts, and many of them feature children's breakfast platters.  The platters are about $5, and include a decent sized breakfast of eggs, bacon or sausage, and maybe grapes or applesauce.  Some of the restaurants offer a Mickey waffle instead of the eggs for the same price.  That's a nice way even for a grown up to start the day.

    There are grab and go options available that can include cereal (under $3), fresh fruit options (starting at about $1), bagels and cream cheese (under $3), and breakfast type pastries (many under $3).  

    You'll have plenty of choices when you hit the theme parks as well.  You will find breakfast platters at places like Pizzafari at Disney's Animal Kingdom, where a kids' french toast platter won't cost more than $5, and large muffins for about $3 that could easily be shared, especially if you each grab a piece of fresh fruit.  The Writers' Stop at Disney's Hollywood Studios has a variety of breakfast friendly pastries under $3 that include bagels, muffins, and Danishes.  EPCOT's Sunshine Seasons Food Court serves up oatmeal and french toast (both under $5), and the Magic Kingdom Bakery also has some quick breakfast options.

    You might also consider bringing your own breakfast bars, instant breakfast drinks, or even oatmeal packets that can be made with hot water.  This will help keep the budget in check as well.

    Have an awesome vacation!
