  • [Question] Best deals

    I like a bargain. But I like to get as much as I can for my money. My family and I are going to Dland on Tuesday. Of course we have to eat in the park. What are some suggestions for eating. Dinner always has to be the Plaza Inn. Any others.

    The Bengal BBQ serves up a good value.

    The Carnation Cafe is a great sit-down restaurant too!

    And don't forget about the Tomorrowland Terrace SANDWICH counter (not the tasteless, greasy burger side)...

      Plaza In has for $21 a steak dinner big enough for two people and lots of cheaper meals.

      Taste Pilot Grill is by far a great deal with all the topping you want for $10 and yes you can for 70 cents more get onion rings.

        Don't really know any good meal deals inside the park, but... You said you have to eat in the park, but if you'd really like to save some money/get away from the possible crowds for a bit, there's that McDonalds right outside the park on Harbor. Maybe only take 30 mins or so out of your time from rides and what not, but yeah...

          Pizza Port... the pasta is delicious and big enough to share!
          Good morning, son
          In twenty years from now
          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
          And I can tell you 'bout today
          And how I picked you up and everything changed
          It was pain
          Sunny days and rain
          I knew you'd feel the same things...

            Truth be told, there are not a lot of bargains (a relative term) to be had, but the Plaza Inn still serves a portion of their Specialty Chicken dish that'll feed two people (well, it's twice as much as I need to eat, and I'm not tiny). It's also really good fried chicken, in my opinion.

            If you like BBQ ribs (especially thoroughly-cooked ones ), the X-5 Rocket Ribs over at Taste Pilots' Grill are a decent deal for what you get at a theme park, as well as many of their other items. You could "improvise" your own salads and split it for two.

              Corn dogs might be a good option too: big and delicious!

              Also, does DL have the same option as WDW where you can specifically request no side (fries, chips, etc.)? I know at WDW that is an option and they prorate the price of the meal accordingly. If you don't need the side it might be another option.

                corn dogs and chips, 6 bucks. I take bottled water with me into the Park so I don't get burned on the high priced water or sodas

                  I agree about the large corn dogs, and apple slices where available as an alternative can be refreshing, and certainly won't make you thirsty like chips can.

                  So do I, usually, but there appears to be no shortage of folks who contribute to Disney's bottom line by buying drinks at the parks. That's good because it helps keep admission prices lower for me.

                  Also, you could make a meal out of the chili cheese fries at Taste Pilots' Grill (less than $6) or the Golden Horseshoe (less than $5)--they're more like relatively inexpensive meals than snacks, anyway. And although it's a bit pricy like all drinks at the park (except for Anaheim tap water), the Golden Horseshoe's root beer/cola float is like a drink and a dessert all in one! Mmmm...chili cheese fries and root beer float...I get chest pains and palpitations just thinking about it--be sure to eat healthy food at home for a while to help recover from all of this stuff.

                    Ditto, one pasta + one salad = enough food for at least 3.

                      at Plaza Inn you can get a side of the fried chicken for only 2.50 before tax. A biscuit lands you another 60 cents more.

                        Bringing in outside food is a good way to cut costs.

                          Disneyland has expensive food so plan accordingly
                          Toontown pizza is around 7-8 dollars and ususally it is a goo time to go late in the afternoon (no lines)
                          Bengal Barbecue is awesome but small but good small around 4 dollars
                          If you are the walking person you can try any of the various restaurants across the street from Disneyland on Harbor Blvrd. Mc Donald's and Ihop are straight across

                            I guess they've kept the portion sizes up, then? I had heard about them substantially reducing portion sizes at the Pizza Port, but maybe I heard wrong.

                            That's not bad for theme park food if you really like their chicken.

                            Well, of course, and I've done that, too. Currently, the "rule" against bringing in food and beverages is rather soft. One time I saw this large party with maybe 15 people in it who took huge Tupperware-type containers out of several backpacks and fed the whole bunch easily. I'm just mentioning this because it was the biggest, best organized such operation I have witnessed at Disneyland (the food looked pretty good, too). They looked like they were all from the same family--imagine how much it would have cost for them to have bought lunch.

                            It's overpriced in the same way that all food at theme/amusement parks and other recreational areas (e.g. zoos, movie theaters) are. They'll charge whatever the market will bear, which by appearances (i.e. crowded tables during mealtimes) seems like quite a lot--so much for the recession. I don't think that Disney charges more than other parks do, though. I know that drinks at Knott's Berry Farm are actually more expensive (if you can believe that!) and there are fewer drinking fountains there, too.

                            Speaking of which, some drinking fountains are better than others in terms of water taste (and I assume quality). I like the fountains near the exit of Star Tours (inside the building) best.

                            If there is decent pizza anywhere within the DLR, I have yet to find it. Then again, I haven't looked for years.

                            You could bring some rice and make a meal out of a skewer.

                            Remember that an AP gets you a 10% discount even at some non-Disney locations within Downtown Disney.

                              Believe it or not I would HIGHLY recommend heading over to Whitewater Snacks at the Grand Californian. It isn't inside the park, but it is relaxing, air conditioned, and the majority of the menu is much better quality then in the parks.
