Disneyland is a magical place where kids and adults can go and have fun together. Disneyland is also an expensive place with some very expensive places to eat. However, there are a lot of places in Disneyland to eat that are really not much more expensive than eating at fast food joints. All of the food is delicious and filling. Sometimes if a person is not real hungry a meal can be shared to save money and will be plenty filling.
One thing to remember to keep costs down is not to order drinks. Drinks are one of the biggest budget breakers at Disneyland. All restaurants that have fountain drinks also give free cups of ice water. Some of them even give it in regular size cups.
Many of the restaurants offer kids meals that come with a drink. The kid’s meals are smaller portions but are actually filling most of the time.
If a person wants pizza or pasta a really good place to go is Pizza Port located in Tomorrowland. Pizza Port is a buffet style restaurant that offers pizza, dish of pasta, or salad for under ten dollars. The slice of pizza is big enough to fill a person up. The pasta dish is quite a lot of food and there are several kinds of pasta. The salad is also filling.
