  • I don't know, but I hear the meal plans they offer are well worth it.

  • the meal plans are worth it but only if you stay on the grounds you can get them

  • You can save a lot of money by buying your own food and eating in... especially if you are staying on the grounds. Also, you could pack a cooler of sandwich making stuff and go out to your car for lunch... there are tons of people that do that. Trust me, I don't really need to be that concerned about meals right now, but when the kids were little and we took vacations, the more money I could save, the better I felt. Disney can be a very affordable trip, and there are a lot of ladies on here who can help you more with that.... Have fun!!

  • If you will be purchasing food from the park... Plan for at least $15-$20/per meal/per person.
