Tips for dining at Disney World.
Disney World isn’t just about events, attractions, rides, and characters. It’s also about the many different types of foods and beverages you’ll have access to whenever you visit. Throughout the park, you’ll find delicious meals and snacks to delight everyone in your group.
Discovering new and exciting places to eat will be part of your Disney World experience, especially if you signed up for a private VIP tour of the park. To help your taste buds get the most out of your trip, we’ve compiled a few Disney World dining tips that you can use throughout your Disney World VIP tour.
Make Reservations Early
If you want to have your pick of a Disney dining experience, then you should definitely make your reservations early, even months in advance if you can. This is especially true if you and your family want to sign up for a meal where you get to eat with some of your favorite Disney characters.
Decide on a Meal Budget
There are so many delicious foods and beverages to find inside Disney World that it’s very easy to spend a whole lot of cash. If money is an issue, which it most likely is, then it’s a good idea to create a budget that includes primary meals along with enough money for snacks and beverages that you will pick up throughout the day.
Eat Breakfast Before Arriving
There are two reasons why you want to forego Disney dining when eating breakfast. First, you’ll save money by eating outside of the park. Second, you’ll save valuable time right after the park opens that could be spent on an attraction or two.
Ask Your Guide for Advice
Disney VIP tour guides will make your vacation more memorable by reducing your time spent in line, booking Disney hotel reservations, finding your favorite characters, and other such perks. Another function of the VIP experience is that your own personal guide can assist you with discovering the best and most affordable places to eat.
Bring Along Outside Food
Although Disney used to frown on visitors bringing their own food and drink inside the park, they now allow it. They’ll even let you bring a cooler with you if you’d like. This is a great way to save time and money as you go from one attraction to another. Just keep in mind that you can’t bring in alcoholic beverages.
Take Advantage of Discounts
Many people seem to be unaware that you can receive discounts on dining costs if you’re a member of certain programs. These include Disney World annual pass holders, Vacation Club members, and Disney Visa cardholders. You can also receive meal discounts if you’re a member of AAA or AARP.
Use the Disney World Dining Plan
Whether or not the Disney World Dining Plan will be beneficial to you and your family or friends will depend on where you choose to eat and what types of food and beverages you enjoy throughout the day. This is an option if you purchase a Magic Your Way package or use Disney Vacation Club points.
Eat at Irregular Times
If you are able to eat at irregular times for lunch and dinner, then you will typically miss the biggest crowds. For example, it may be best to eat lunch at 3 pm. and dinner at 8 pm. Even if you save only 15 or 20 minutes with each meal, that’s more time to enjoy an extra attraction or meet a different Disney character.
