    Question Types of food to bring to resorts

    We will be flying in and plan on bringing an extra suitcase for food stuffs to save money while there.

    Breakfast cereal, snack crackers, even a bag of apples.

    Since we are staying onsite and have no way of getting to a grocery store PLEASE suggest some other foods to bring.

    Also are there microwaves in the all star resort rooms?

    No microwaves in the rooms, but I believe there is one you can use in the food court.

    Some peanut butter and bread or crackers can make a satisfying breakfast or snack that can be quickly eaten on the run. Definitely bring plenty of bottled water!!

    if you're careful, Pop Tarts are good also. Any kind of cereal or granola bar is good and easy to carry.

    those little flavor packets for water are great. We usually bring those little cracker packets too. They're a perfect little snack, and fill you up a lot.

    Breakfast I'd go with Granola/Breakfast Bars or PopTarts (if you don't need them toasted).

    For room snacks I'd say get the Honey Wheat Pretzel twists, they are not as fragile as other snacks. Nuts, Jerkey or Slim Jims are good carb watchers (or meat lovers like my DS )

    Rather than trying to pack liquids, I would get the refillable mug from the food court.

    Another option is to use a service to provide non perishable foods. A couple I have heard of are WeGoShop or GardenGrocer

    I always bring food snacks with me. I bring poptarts for breakfast (like others suggested). I bring apples & oranges for snacks too. I also bring pringles (since they are in a can), those cheese & cracker snack packs and little fruit snacks (roll ups or gushers) for a sweet tooth. I also buy a bag of bite sized candy bars for waiting in line. Somehow, it doesn't seem so bad if you have a bite of a snickers.

    Just don't try to take an opened can home in your checked luggage - I'm still finding chip-bits in my suitcase from 3 years ago!

    My wife and I are having a disagreement about whether they sell bread at the small store in the value resorts. I know they had milk because we used that for breakfasts last time.

    I think I read on another site that individual slices are sold in the value resorts at the food courts. I don't remember seeing them, but I wasn't looking.

    These are all great ideas. We are finishing up our plans for a trip in September and I just told my husband this morning that we should take some snacks with us instead of paying after we go over our allotted snacks with the meal plans.
