Disney Dining on a Dime - How to Enjoy the Food at Disney on the Cheap

Counter Service Food

Dining is a huge part of the Disney experience, and Disney World is home to some of the most incredible eateries out there. Missing out on these during your vacation would truly be a shame.
That said, eating at Disney World is incredibly expensive. Therefore, if you're on a tight budget, it may seem nearly impossible to enjoy even a couple of Disney dining experiences. If you're struggling to fit Disney food into your budget, try the tips below to make your money stretch and get the most food and fun for your buck.

14. Skip the Sides

My first bit of advice is to order only what you'll really eat. In many cases, this means skipping side items entirely. The thing is, most foods at Disney World are advertised as including a side in the price. However, you needn't order the side. Simply ask for the entree à la carte, and you'll save a dollar or two on your meal.
