I’m a travel planner who’s been to Disney World over 40 times. Here’s my 1-day itinerary for cheap foodies.

  • As an experienced Disney travel planner, I’ve made the perfect itinerary for foodies on a budget.

  • There are tasty breakfast options at Magic Kingdom and fun lunch offerings at Disney Springs.

  • Epcot is the perfect place to enjoy an affordable snacky dinner around the World Showcase.

As a travel agent at Marvelous Mouse Travels, I always get asked about the best food at Disney World.

It’s one of the most enjoyable aspects of a Disney vacation, but it can also get pricey.

Here’s my plan for budget-savvy foodies to get the most out of a one-day trip to Disney World for around $100:

Start the day early at Magic Kingdom by splitting 2 of my favorite snacks

Sharing is a great way to try lots of different foods at the parks, and I’ve found a few delicious snack-priced items that are big enough to split.

The cinnamon roll at Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland is delicious, huge, and only $6.79. You can also grab a LeFou’s Brew (frozen apple juice) to accompany your roll for $6.29.

Next head over to Sleepy Hollow for one of the fresh-fruit waffle sandwiches. Again, the portions are large, and you can split this with a friend or two for $8.49.

Next head to Disney Springs for shopping, snacks, and a tapas-style lunch

If you need a snack to gather energy for souvenir shopping at Disney Springs — the free-to-enter entertainment, dining, and shopping district at Disney World — start with the loaded fries at the Daily Poutine.

They’re covered in queso blanco, iceberg lettuce, pico de gallo, bacon, and garlic-ranch dressing for $9.49. Four of us recently split this snack and were left feeling full.

If you’re looking for a sweet snack, a cookie from Gideon’s Bakehouse is large enough for a few to share.

They cost $6, and you may have to wait in line, but they’re insanely good.

After some shopping, head to Jaleo by José Andrés for lunch.

It’s one of my favorite foodie spots in Disney Springs, and it’s great if you’re on a budget because much of the food is served tapas-style.

You can get a filling lunch for about $35 to $40 a person.

End the day at Epcot with small bites ‘ar
ound the world’

Snacking around the World Showcase at Epcot is a great way to end the perfect foodie day — especially if you visit in the fall during the Food and Wine Festival, which features hundreds of offerings from food and desserts to wine and beer.

The tasting-sized dishes typically run between $8 and $11 each, so you can try and share a few as you stroll through the country pavilions.

Some of my recurring favorites include the soy-glazed sticky ribs ($7) from the Swanky Saucy Swine, Canadian-cheddar cheese and bacon soup ($5.25) from Canada, mezzelune croccanti ($12) from Italy, and the mimosa flight ($13) from Shimmering Sips.

Throughout the year, there are three other festivals held in Epcot’s World Showcase that also have special food and drink offerings. And even if you manage to miss all the festivals, you can still find similarly affordable snacks and appetizers to share in the country pavilions.
