    Hi Donald,

    You will  want to seek out a quick service restaurant in each of Disney's four major theme parks.  That's where you'll find the most cost effective meals for your party.  Here are my favorites:

    In the Magic Kingdom, I suggest either the Columbia Harbour House (if you like chicken or fish) or Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe.  Cosmic Ray's has a wide variety of options and many seats in this restaurant have a lovely view of Cinderella Castle and the parades.  If Mexican food is more your taste, then try Tortuga Tavern in Adventureland.

    I think you'll find the widest selection of foods at Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion of Epcot.  

    Flame Tree BBQ is an excellent quick service restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom.  If you'd prefer pizza, then Pizzafari is a good option on the day you visit that park.

    Finally, I recommend Min & Bill's Dockside Diner in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I love their frankfurters in pretzel bread.  Yum!  They also have lovely sandwiches and salads at Studios Catering Company.  

    Allow me to make a suggestion that will save your group at least $20-30 per meal.  When you enter the park each day, make sure you have a beverage packed for each person in your group. (Did you know that Disney allows guests to bring their own food and drinks into the parks?)  Even though those beverages will be warm by lunchtime, the Cast Members at Walt Disney World will be happy to give you a complimentary glass of ice when you dine.  Bringing your own beverages for even just one meal can save you quite a bit of money each day.

    Have an amazing vacation this June!
