Where to Stay, What to Do and Where to Dine on a Moderate Budget at Disney World

Ohana's Skewers

Where to Eat

Disney dining is so delicious, guests dining on a moderate budget need to check out a character meal and a few other table service dining experiences during vacation. At around thirty-five to seventy dollars per plate, character dining at table service restaurants may seem like a splurge. Still, budgeting for a few great meals during your vacation is well worth it.

My family’s number one cannot miss Disney dining experience is dinner at Ohana at Polynesian Village Resort. Bottomless grilled Hawaiian meat, tropical salad, chicken wings and Polynesian noodles are the perfect end to a busy day in the parks. For buffet fans booking a dinner seat at 1900 Park Fare at Grand Floridian Resort is a great dining option. You get to meet Cinderella, Prince Charming, Anastasia and Drizella while you enjoy an incredible dinner.

What to Do

Fantasia Gardens

If you have wiggle room in your budget, consider adding unique extras to your vacation like a trip to Fantasia mini golf course with the family. Learn something new in an archery or horseback riding class at Fort Wilderness Resort. Cocktail tasting is another fun way to explore different bars around resorts when you have a bit of extra cash to spare. The frozen margarita at Coronado Springs pool bar or the glowing martini at Outer Rim in the Contemporary Resort are yummy drinks to try during resort hopping

What to Buy

Memory Maker

Photos are a great way to remember your Disney vacation long after you have driven out the Walt Disney World gates. Purchasing the MemoryMaker is a great idea if you have space in your budget. The MemoryMaker package is around one hundred seventy dollars and gets you unlimited vacation photos in digital form.

MemoryMaker makes it easy to collect all the ride photos and videos as well as posed family photos from the parks with everyone in the picture. PhotoPass photographers are stationed around the park to take group photos of your family. Photos can easily be shared to social media straight from the My Disney Experience app!
