Eating on a Budget – Magic Kingdom
To get maximum value when visiting one of the theme parks in Walt Disney World it can sometimes be a case of compromising your normal meal time routines and looking for a speedier alternative to a full service restaurant.
That, of course, for some guests may not be the case where a a good leisurely lunch or dinner is considered to be an important factor of the whole Disney experience.
However, for most families on a day visit we have found them more likely to seek cheaper and quicker food stops, simply so they can get the most out of their visit in terms of the rides, shows and parades.
In this article we are concentrating on the counter service eateries in the Magic Kingdom and have highlighted one restaurant in each area of the park which we believe delivers good quality food and excellent value for money.
We start at Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square which offers a varied menu and includes a wonderfully satisfying and filling clam chowder at less than five dollars.
At this point, perhaps, we should mention that all the restaurants featured cater for children under nine years old who can choose from a selection which tends to include not only favourites such as burgers, chicken nuggets and fries but also some healthier salad options as well.
The Terrace Noodle Station in Tomorrowland serves Asian delights such as Orange Chicken and Tofu both with steamed rice. Don’t forget a side of egg rolls as well, they are absolutely delicious. The most expensive item on the menu is under eight dollars so feeding a family of four or more is not going to empty your purse.
Moving on to Fantasyland, Pinocchio’s Village Haus specialises in combination pizzas although we like the Mediterranean Salad which has a chicken base and includes black olives and red peppers, all for just eight dollars. If you still have room for dessert the strawberry cheesecake comes highly recommended.
Peco Bill’s Café in Frontierland is a full blown burger and fries joint but it does have a couple of alternatives to offer in a hearty chicken wrap and a barbecued pork sandwich.
And finally we arrive in Adventureland, at El Pirata y Perico where the Mexican influence is very apparent. Tortillas filled with a variety of beef and rice tease the taste buds and the Haagen Daz Almond bar is to die for.
When you get a day off from the theme parks Disney has some lovely full service restaurants with excellent food. Why not give one of them a try…. you would have deserved it.
