Let’s face it, Walt Disney World can cost a pretty penny, and if you’re on a budget, you’re probably already looking for ways to save.
We know it’s important to save money where you can — and dining is one of the most expensive parts of a Disney World trip.
The cost of food on your trip can sneak up on you, so we’re going to tell you about the cheapest places to eat in the parks!
A Magic Kingdom classic! Casey’s Corner is known for hot dogs, corn dog nuggets, and that plastic cheese, of course.
Regular hot dogs range from $9.49-$11.49 and the foot-long hot dogs are between $11.49-$13.49. That may seem like a lot, but as this comes with a side of fries, you could easily split a foot-long hot dog meal with someone!
The corn dog nugget meal is also easily shareable at $9.99, and the plastic cheese is only $1!
If you’re looking for a hearty snack, they have chili for $4.59 and chili cheese fries for $6.49.
Sometimes we have those days at the parks where we just need to get sustenance into our bodies as fast as possible, which is where places like Catalina Eddie’s in Hollywood Studios comes into play.
The menu is small but can definitely fill you up! You can get a personal cheese pizza for $9.99 or a pepperoni pizza for $10.49. Both of these come with a Caesar salad, too, so it’s a pretty good value.
If you just want a Caesar salad, you can get one with chicken for $9.99. And if you need even more carbs, grab the breadsticks for $4.99!
Choza de Margarita
Who would’ve though that a margarita place was going to make this list? Choza de Margarita is located in the Mexico pavilion outside the pyramid, and this place actually has some decent options.
You can get pulled pork tacos (Tacos de Cochinita) or beef empanadas (Empanada de Barbacoa) for $10.50 each and they both come with a side of corn esquites, which is a type of corn salad.
There is also a chicken tostada (Tostada de Pollo) on the menu for $10.50, guacamole and chips for $10, and street corn on the cob (Elote) for $7.
This food could definitely help give you a good foundation for drinking around the world!
Dino Diner is located in DinoLand, USA, at Animal Kingdom. This place also doesn’t have a huge menu, but there are some substantial options!
Grab a corn chip pie for $8.49, a hot dog with potato chips for $8.99, or a chili-cheese dog with potato chips for $10.99.
You can also get a churro with chocolate sauce here for $6.19!
Eight Spoon Cafe
Another Animal Kingdom spot makes the list — Eight Spoon Cafe on Discovery Island. Their food may be listed as “snacks” but they could definitely be a small meal!
Known for their baked macaroni and cheese, you can get regular mac for $4.49 or the version with pulled pork on top for $6.79.
They also have a wild pulled-pork jelly doughnut sandwich with slaw for $6.99!
The Friar’s Nook
Lunch and Dinner are also decent values. Entrees like a bacon macaroni and cheese hot dog with tots or loaded buffalo chicken tots range from $9.49-$11.49.
You also can just get tots and cheese sauce for $5.29!
The Lunching Pad
Heading over to Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom, we come to The Lunching Pad.
They have a pulled pork sandwich meal for $11.49 and a foot-long hot dog meal for $11.49 (which, again, you could split with someone!).
They also have the delicious cream cheese warm stuffed pretzel for $6.79! If you just want a regular pretzel, they also have Mickey pretzels with cheese sauce for $6.79. Both are great snacks to share!
Mr. Kamal’s is just a simple snack stand in Animal Kingdom, but there are some great flavors here!
You can get chicken dumplings with ponzu sauce for $5.99 or Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries, also for $5.99. The fries are a fan favorite and come with curried honey mustard or Korean chili ketchup.
If you get those two items together, you have a decent meal for yourself or a snack to share with a friend!
Pizzafari is over on Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom, and it’s another place to grab a quick bite of filling pizza. Their personal pizzas range from $9.99-$10.99, and all come with a small Caesar salad.
You can also get the Caesar on its own for $7.99 or with chicken for $9.99. They have a greens and grains salad for $9.99 as well.
And if you don’t want pizza, there is a chicken parmesan sandwich meal for $10.99 or a side of garlic knots for $6.99!
PizzeRizzo is very similar to Pizzafari, it’s just over in Hollywood Studios! Over here we have personal pizzas ranging from $9.99-$10.99 that come with the choice of one side.
They also have an antipasto salad for $10.49, a meatball sub for $9.99, and a spicy Italian “sausage” plant-based sub for $9.99.
And the side Caesar salad here is only $3.79!
In Pandora at Animal Kingdom, you can find some good value eats at Pongu Pongu! For breakfast, there is a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit for $6.99, French toast sticks for $6.29, and the famous Pongu Lumpia for $3.79.
After Breakfast, the Colossal Pretzel becomes available for $10.49. This thing is massive and comes with a side of beer cheese, so you can definitely share it with someone!
Back over in Magic Kingdom, Sleepy Hollow has some great options all day long. For breakfast, you can get the fresh fruit waffle sandwich with chocolate-hazelnut spread for $8.29, a Mickey waffle for $5.79, or the Mickey waffle with strawberries, whipped cream, and powdered sugar for $6.79.
After that, you can get the sweet-and-spicy chicken-waffle sandwich with chips for $10.49 or a hand-dipped corn dog with chips for $10.99!
And a classic funnel cake with strawberries, whipped cream, and powdered sugar is on the menu all day long for $7.99.
Going to Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom again, we have the Smiling Crocodile. This place has tacos that are a pretty good value!
They have pulled pork street tacos, chicken street tacos, or street corn tacos all for $9.99 each. The best part? They all come with a side of chips and salsa!
You can also just get an order of chips and salsa for $4.99.
More pizza! But this time, it’s a bit different. Terra Treats in Animal Kingdom serves up giant slices of pizza instead of personal pizzas.
A slice of tomato and cheese pizza is $5.99 and a slice of pepperoni and cheese pizza is $6.49.
Woody’s Lunch Box
Wrapping things up in Hollywood Studios we have good ol’ Woody’s Lunch Box! You can get a breakfast bowl here with potato barrels and eggs smothered in smoked brisket country gravy for $8.79.
For Lunch and Dinner, entrees range from $8.99-$12.99 for things like a BBQ brisket melt or totchos.
Also available at Woody’s are the Lunch Box Tarts! These are basically like elevated Pop-Tarts and they come in a variety of flavors for $4.29.
The newest Lunch Box Tart is Halloween themed and filled with chocolate-hazelnut spread.
Those are all of the cheapest places to eat in Walt Disney World! We hope this can help you with planning and budgeting for your trip. Stay tuned to All Ears for more Disney tips and info!
