How easy will it be to think “Hmm. I’m hungry now” and go get wings/ribs/pizza/burgers (and vegetarian food for my friend)
Answer - VERY easy, especially for qs/cs food.
Better answer - exceptionally easy, if you figure out where you will be at a time you will assume you’ll be hungry, OR, if you have a general idea of what places you’d like to eat at, and then have all of those places in your mental rolodex.
Best answer: If you know you’ll be near a place you’d like to eat, and if you plan to be near that place at a time you should be hungry, make an adr. Walk right by all of the ppl not knowing where they are going, or what they are doing, and go straight to your table.
What about at the monorail hotels, which I thought we might visit in the afternoons.
Answer: They all have cs/qs places, and they all have ts places as well. You can search for tables if you’d like. More than likely, you can just search for a table at a time you’d like to eat, and then just pick from whatever is available. You can’t expect a table for the place you really want, but you can cross your fingers. If not, just pick from what’s available.
Do I really have to schedule everything in advance like a military operation, lol.
Answer: Not at all. It helps some ppl to do it that way, but if you’re more of a go with the flow type, do what works for you.
Oh, and how much should I budget per day for food (of the sort I’ve mentioned), drinks and snacks?
Answer: Just a suggestion on how to budget - you have to look at menus and find out the prices of what you would eat. I would pick a few menus items, and then figure out much you would really eat - some of the combo meals are a lot of food. YOu might want to searcch around or ask about the portion sizes of what you think you would order. So, for example, if BBQ would interest you - I’d suggest Flame Tree BBQ if you were to go to AK. ( It’s not GREAT BBQ, but it’s great for WDW bbq.) However, one of their combo platters can easily feed two ppl for around 20 dollars. I’m a total pig, and I would never order one of those and expect to finish it, so I’d budget 20 dollars for lunch for my wife and I at Flame Tree. I’d also want a dole whip from Tamu Tamu, and the wife would want a rum drink. SO, for me, at AK for lunch, snack and a boozy rum drink, I’d expect to need about 35.00 for mid day food/snacks that would carry us until dinner. BTW - We are water drinkers, so add in if you like soft drinks or adult drinks accordingly.
