Best Disney World restaurants to share meals (maximize your $$$)

One way to stretch your dining budget or Disney Dining Plan credits is by sharing meals, and the best way to do that is to make sure you're dining at places or ordering entrees that have entrees large enough to share.

Below, check out a list of Disney World restaurants where you can order portions that are big enough that you can split it with somebody else.

Quick Service restaurants

A couple of tips about Quick Service restaurants

  • You can share food at any Quick Service restaurant.
  • If you're on the Disney Dining Plan, the QS credits aren't split between adults and kids. That means kids can order from the adult menu and gives you more food to share.
