- Hi, Connie! There are a few spots where you can find a reasonably priced table service meal. At the Magic Kingdom, I like the Plaza restaurant, which has some nice sandwiches, salads, and even a yummy meat loaf.
At EPCOT, I like Chefs de France or San Angel Inn, where you can easily make a meal from appetizers, or even share an entree and just pick up an extra soup or salad. Chefs de France also has a prix fixe menu that you can budget in.
Disney's Hollywood Studios has some reaonably priced comfort food type meals, and I find that these are usually shareable as well. We might order some onion rings or a chicken soup, and then my husband and I will share an entree.
My favorite dining experience at Animal Kingdom is the Flame Tree Barbecue, which is another shareable meal for us. You can grab an outside table and enjoy some delicious food.
It's often a bit less expensive to do lunch than dinner, and your tiny princess will eat for free at any of the buffet restaurants. Another tip to keep dining expenses down is to cut back to just two meals. We might skip breakfast in favor of a granola bar that I brought with me, then eat an early buffet lunch. Or, we'll skip lunch in favor of an earlier dinner.
I hope you have a wonderful time on your holiday vacation!
