    Of course if you don't mind the taste of WDW tap water remember you can always ask for a free cup of ice water at most of the stands.

    you are right, dining at disney can be spendy, but you can save if you plan ahead. we always have a case bottled water delivered to our room, water in the parks is crazy $$$$. we also pack lots of cereal bars,granola bars ect in our luggage to have for b-fast in the mornings or for a snack later in the day. Also the portions at alot of cs places are pretty large, so we will share. we always stay on property to eat. in fact we have our own car and never leave property.

    The German Buffet at EPCOT. Eat as much as you can for a late lunch and you are good for the rest of the day.

    Pro tip - sleep off your initial food coma at the American show next store.

    And there is the kick, everyone's view of a deluxe vacation is so different. Mine isn't ordering groceries, or even fixing and cleaning up the simplest breakfast or meal. When staying at a deluxe hotel at Disney or even a moderate I enjoy not thinking about food prep, clean up. I like maid service everyday, my bed made up, room vacuumed, sinks tidied up, clean towels and toiletries replenished, no additional cost and they remove the trash daily. I'm on vacation from my everyday life, so QS or TS meals are my idea of a vacation.

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
