My family and I are not foodies by any means. On our previous trip we were content to snack on granola bars and bottled water while we were in the parks and ate cooked meals at our condo to keep costs down. However, on our next trip I am budgeting money to buy a special snack in each park. Remember, we are cheapskates so eating several full meals is not in the cards for us, so we are looking for the best snacks each park has to offer. Will be taking myself, wife, and 9 year old daughter.
This is what I’ve come up with so far:
Magic Kingdom: Eat lunch at Be Our Guest. Likely our one and only full meal inside a park. I know its going to be a tough reservation to get as we are staying offsite and won’t have 180+10 days to get the reservation, but going to give it a shot anyway.
EPCOT: My wife grew up in Germany, so a bratwurst at Sommerfest is sounding good. Also, I want to buy a memory at Beaches & Cream (it’s within walking distance of EPCOT’s international gateway, isn’t it?) and surprise my daughter with the kitchen sink!
Animal Kingdom: Sharing cheeseburger pods and blueberry cream cheese mousse at Satuli Canteen. Also want it to be the day we try dole whip for the first time as they are available at Tamu Tamu.
Hollywood Studios: This one seems to be a tough one. I can’t see much unique for snack food in this park. The PB& J shake at 50’s Prime Time Cafe won’t interest anyone except me, and like I said we will be avoiding full restaurants for most of the trip other than BOG, so Sci-Fi Diner is out, too. So this day may just be a Mickey ice cream bar day as they are available at Dinosaur Gertie’s.
And while this isn’t the Universal message board, that area is nearly dead, so I’ll just go ahead and post that frozen butterbeer at IoA and the Big Pink at Lard Lad in Springfield at Universal are showing the most promise.
So, critique, add, subtract…whatever you think will help make this a great vacation (for our budget, anyway!)
