Budgeting for food at Disney (without using the Disney Dining Plan)

Budgeting for food at Disney (without using the Disney Dining Plan)

For lots of people (including us!), the food at Walt Disney World is part of the experience.

With so many options in the parks and resorts it can be downright difficult to narrow down your choices.

But, after years and years worth of nearly monthly trips we’ve come up with a few things that can help.

Budgeting for food at Disney

Ready to get started crunching the numbers? We know that doesn’t sound like a ton of fun but if understanding the budget is important for your trip, a little work now can save you from sticker shock when you arrive.

Plus, it just makes good sense.

Disney World trips are expensive, and no matter if you’re going for a super-luxurious experience or something a little bit easier on the pocketbook, getting a good value for your dollar is important.

And the only way to do that is by doing a little bit of homework before you go.

Plan then save? Or budget then plan?

When putting together a budget for ANY trip, there’s a couple different ways to go about it.

The “Plan then Save” approach

If you’re planning a trip a year or more down the line, it is typically a good idea to price things out now so that you’ll have a solid idea on how much money you’ll need to save

Back when we first started traveling to Walt Disney World with our families, this is the approach we took for many years.

We traveled to Walt Disney World every-other-year and used the time in-between to save up the money we’d need to fit the plans we had for our next vacation.

This approach works really well if you’re waiting for your kids to get older before you take a trip or even if you’re holding off going for other reasons, like the current global health crisis.

Note: If this is the way you prefer to plan and budget, we recommend adding 5% extra to your total to allow for inflation and price increases.

The “Budget then Plan” method

But, if you’re traveling soon and you already have a dollar amount for a trip set aside, your planning will look a little bit different.

Instead of trying to figure out a plan and then save the money you’ll need you will need to figure out the best way to spend the money you already have available to get as close as possible to the trip you have in your mind.

But, no matter which method you choose, in order to get a good idea of the cost of food you’ll still need to do a little bit of math, first.

Understand the basics

Consider yourself a Disney World vet? You can probably skip this section. But, if you’re new to the Disney game, you’ll definitely want to keep reading.

Before you can create a food budget for your trip you’ll have to understand the ins and outs of dining at the Walt Disney World Resort.

First things first – Disney has nearly a bajillion different places to eat.

Here’s the most important things to know:

When it comes to meals – you’ll have 2 main types of restaurants to choose from: Table Service and Quick Service (also called Counter Service).

Table Service

  • Generally requires Advanced Dining Reservations
  • You’re seated at a table and a server takes your order, refills your drinks for you, etc.
  • More expensive than Quick Service options

Quick Service/Counter Service

  • Does not require Advanced Dining Reservations
  • You order at a counter and seat yourself
  • Less expensive than Table Service options

Aside from those 2 main options, there are a few more ways to get food at Disney:

  • Carts: generally don’t serve “complete” meals (although a few do serve heavier savory items); typically they sell snacks, and drinks.
  • Festival kiosks: this is something you primarily see in Epcot during all of their festivals. The kiosks typically serve small sized portions making it easy to try a variety of different foods and drinks.

Plan where you’ll be dining

Now for the fun stuff: choosing where to eat.

But slow down before you get too far because this isn’t something you want to do all willy-nilly.

You need to be strategic or else you’ll find yourself spending half your vacation on Disney transportation going from meal to meal instead of in the parks having fun.

That’s why in our planning process we recommend you decide where you’ll be each day of your vacation first and then choose your dining.

If you feel comfortable using Google Sheets or Excel, a spreadsheet like that will come in very handy for this part.

If you don’t, you can print off this planning sheet to help keep things organized:

Need to research where to eat first?

The official Walt Disney World website is a great place to start. Curious about our favorite places to dine? You can check out our lists of dining favorites for our thoughts.

Now that you know where you’ll be dining, you’ll need to figure out what to expect when it comes to the cost.

Option 1: the “Simple” way to budget

Looking for a simple and relatively painless way to come up with a food budget?

You can use meal cost averages.

Will this be an exact amount?

Nope.

But, will it get you a number to work with without you having to break things down restaurant-by-restaurant?

Yep.

Things to keep in mind if you choose this method:

  • This is definitely the easiest way to come up with a number, but it is also the least accurate.
  • The numbers below are averages, not exact costs.
  • Because this method uses purely averages, if you plan on doing lots of Signature Dining Experiences (which are more expensive meals like Cinderella’s Royal Table), we recommend you use the other budgeting method below to get a more accurate dollar amount. 

Where we got our numbers

While not an exact science, by using the prices of the Disney Dining Plan we can get a decent idea as to what Disney thinks are the average prices for meals and snacks.

Here are some things we can make some guesstimations on. Again – these are just averages!

  • Snacks average around $5-$6 each
  • Quick Service meals average about $19 (per adult, per meal) and about $11.00 per child (ages 3-9)
  • Table Service meals average about $42 (per adult, per meal) and about $25.00 per child (ages 3-9)

To get your total for your food budget, add up the total number of Quick Service meals and then add up the total number of Table Service meals and multiply those by the dollar amounts listed.

Don’t forget to add tip money, too. 

Remember – you’ll need to do this for each person for each day of your trip.

Want to make it even easier? You can use this handy chart below. 

Average number of Quick Service meals per dayAverage number of Table Service meals per dayAmount to budget per adult, each day of your tripAmount to budget per child for each day of your trip
20$38$22
11$61$36
12$103$61
21$80$47
02$84$50
03$126$75

Option 2: a more precise way to budget for food

If you’re looking for an even more precise dollar amount, we can help with that, too.

First of all, you can always go to the official pages for each of the restaurants and review the menus. Most will have prices there so you’ll be able to see exactly what things cost.

Do a mock order for yourself and family and you’ll get really close to what the final dollar amount will be.

If that sounds too tedious, there is another way.

For years we have compiled data to help people using the Disney Dining Plan figure out the best values for their credits.

What will also help are the average prices for meals at each restaurant. And we’ve got that data, too.

Important things to know:

  • Not all restaurants listed below may be open. You always double check the Walt Disney World dining website to confirm availability.
  • This list was originally compiled to cover restaurants offering the Disney Dining Plan, so while it does include most of the dining options (for Quick Service and Table Service restaurants), there will be some locations that are missing.
  • Character meals that are currently open are operating with a “modified character dining experience”.
  • We went ahead and left some packages (like the Fantasmic! Dining packages and the Candlelight Processional Dining Packages) on the lists just in case Disney brings them back in the future.
  • Locations that only offer snacks are not included in this list, however, if you’d like to budget for snacks $5.00 – $6.00 per snack is a good dollar amount to use.
  • Don’t forget to budget for tips, too. You’ll need to add that to your budget at all Table Service restaurants.

Notes about beverages:

  • Most fountain drinks will run around $3.99 each
  • Average cost for a canned beer is around $8.00
  • Average cost for a drink or cocktail with alcohol is about $12.00 at Table Service restaurants and $10.00 at Quick Service restaurants
  • Other specialty drinks (with no alcohol) run, on average, about $4.50 each

Alternative to the Disney Dining Plan

Free Dining is Back for 2024

Disney+ Subscribers can get a FREE Disney Dining Plan when when purchasing a non-discounted minium 4-night, 4-day Walt Disney Travel Company package that includes a room at a select Disney Resort hotel and theme park ticket with a Park Hopper option. This offer is valid for arrivals most nights July 1 through Sept. 30, 2024.

Booking for this promotion opens up January 3, 2024.

While the Disney Dining Plan and Disney Quick Service Plans are available, what can you do as an alternative and to keep that “all inclusive” feeling?

One of the most popular alternatives is to use Disney Gift Cards. 

Now – this isn’t exactly the same but it does force you to allocate a dollar amount for food costs before you leave for your trip. 

In fact, this is such a popular way to control food expenses that people who opt not to purchase the Disney Dining Plan have been doing it for years.

Here’s how it works:

Once you have a good idea of how much your food costs will be, purchase gift cards that total that amount.

Some people like to purchase a few cards at a time to spread the cost out over a longer period. If you opt to do that, you can combine multiple gift cards into 1 to make it easier.

Some places, like Sams, even offer Disney Gift cards at a slight savings.

Then when you get to Walt Disney World, you simply pay for your meals using your gift card.

Disney gift card

Tip: use a rubber band to keep the most recent receipt wrapped around your gift card so you can easily track the balance. Have multiple gift cards? Write on them with a Sharpie.

If you are staying onsite you also have the option of charging your food expenses back to your resort using your MagicBand and then paying down the balance at the front desk with your gift card(s).

This may sound like it is the easiest way to do things, but here’s why it isn’t:

Forms of payment aren’t actually attached to MagicBands or Key to the World cards. They are attached to your room. 

And, if you want to use your MagicBand for charging items back to your room you’ll need to have a valid form of payment attached to your account – and that valid form of payment can not be a gift card.

That means that every few days you’ll need to visit the front desk in order to apply a gift card to your balance.

You used to be able to wait until the night before you check out to go to the front desk to pay down your folio, but that policy changed in 2019 and now Disney periodically charges your card to cover expenses. To avoid having to reverse charges made to your credit card you’ll need to visit every few days now.

That’s why you can save a lot of time waiting in line at the front desk if you just opt to pay with a gift card from the start.

One final note: once you put money on a gift card it is on there for good. You can’t get cash back out. So, only put a dollar amount on gift cards that you feel comfortable with. Estimating down (while having cash reserves on hand if you exceed what you have allotted on the gift card) is typically the safest bet.

I LOVE the average cost spreadsheet. The raw data in it is incredibly valuable. How often is that raw data updated?
