    Taking my daughter to Disney first week of Nov. Can you tell me are there any relatively cheap places to eat inside the theme parks? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi Carrie!

    The Quick Service restaurants (fast food type restaurants) are less expensive than the Table Service (full service) restaurants.  If you visit the independent website AllEars.Net, you can see the menus, including prices, for the different restaurants in Walt Disney World.  The information at All Ears is also broken down into the various theme parks.  The team at All Ears does a great job keeping their information up to date with all of the changes at Walt Disney World.

    To save money, I recommend guests arrive at the parks having already eaten breakfast.  You can bring some breakfast items from home (granola bars, pop tarts, etc) or pick up a pastry at your hotel.  That will save money and time when you are in the theme parks. You should also bring some snacks with you into the theme parks and some water in a reusable container!  You can also ask for a free cup of water at any Quick Service location.

    Also, if you want to try out a Table Service restaurant, but are still interested in saving money, then you should try them out at lunch time instead of dinner.  Generally speaking, in my opinion, dinner is much more expensive than lunch at many of the Table Service restaurants though you really don't get that much more food.

    Have a magical vacation!
