Moving right along into our third park – Disney’s Hollywood Studios – to continue the series of eating in the Walt Disney World parks for $14.99 and under. We started with Eating in the Magic Kingdom for $14.99 and Under, and last week we were Eating in Epcot for $14.99 and Under. Contributor Julia really knows how to beat the high cost of food at WDW! Be sure to stop by next week for Eating in Animal Kingdom for $14.99 and Under.
Here are some ways Julia beats the high cost of food when visiting Epcot:
I often order kid’s meals at quick service locations. They are more than enough food and much less expensive! Some of the lunch and breakfast items at Hollywood Studios are ideal for using the kid’s meal rule – they are more than enough for an adult. The portions are large and offer the meal along with a small drink and some fruit. Don’t forget – some snack or dessert items are HUGE and can be a special treat to have dessert for lunch! Live it up! You’re on vacation!
For some reason, some items cost more in one location than another and I don’t know why. If an item is on the list, it is at the cheaper location (Turkey leg in MK is currently $10.99 but in EPCOT is $11.75 and in AK it’s $14.50 w/chips! Cheese sauce is $1.00 in MK and HS but only $.75 in Epcot). This seems to be the case with some alcoholic drinks too. TIP: EPCOT is the priciest of parks when it comes to food and drinks, but also has some items/drinks you can’t find in other parks.
