I love cheap food. Is that bad to admit? I’m from Texas, where you can get the best taco of your life for a dollar from a gas station. Maybe that’s where my love of cheap eats comes from. I know that normally ‘cheap eats’ and ‘Disney World’ aren’t synomanmous, so today, I’m listing some of our favorite inexpensive meals.
-Hawaiian Nachos at Tambu Lounge
We got these pulled pork, pineapple nachos from ten dollars, that EASILY could feed three people. They were huge, and delicious.
-Burgers at D-Luxe
Guys, I love D-Luxe Burger. I have no shame in my affection for this place. You can’t go wrong with any of their burgers, and their fries are big enough to share.
-Salmon BLT at Geyser Point
Geyser Point is a recent addition to the Wilderness Lodge, but it’s become our favorite lunch spot, with their delicious cocktails, outdoor seating, and reasonably priced sandwiches.
-Mac n Cheese at Eight Spoon Cafe
Is there anything better in the world than specialty mac n cheese? Head to the walk up stand, Eight Spoon Cafe, at The Animal Kingdom, for a delicious and cheap meal.
-Soup at Le Chefs de France
To be totally honest, sometimes I go to Le Chefs de France and just order soup and eat bread. Is that terrible? Like I was a server for a long time, so I feel bad, but their soup is under ten dollars, and big enough for a meal. You can’t go wrong with either the Lobster Bisque or French Onion.
-Sushi at Kona Island
Head to Kona Island, next door to The Kona Grill, and grab a sushi roll for a healthy, inexpensive, and delicious meal.
-Sandwiches at Gasparilla Grill
Gasparilla Grill is the quick service restaurant at The Grand Floridian, and we were surprised by how delicious and affordable it was. The sandwiches are big enough to split, and you can take them down to the waterside tables.
-Pizza at Blaze
Blaze is great – I don’t care what the haters say. I’m a fan of any place that gives me pizza quick, and allows me to pile on the toppings without charging me a ton.
-Burgers at The Crew Cup Lounge
The Crew Cup Lounge is the definition of a hidden Disney gem. Tucked next to the Yachtsman Steakhouse, they have one of the best burgers on property (and it won’t break the bank).
-DIY Nachos at Pecos Bills
Guys – this might be the worst cheat in the world, but I love to get just a side of queso and chips, and pile on the free toppings.
The only thing better than good food, is good CHEAP food. We hope these items prove that you don’t have to spend a ton, to have good food on your vacation.
