Disney Cheap Eats: Disney Snacks Big Enough to be a Meal can help you stick to your budget on a cheap family vacation to Disney. If you are looking for affordable meal options at Disney, Snacks as a Meal is a great option.
If you are booked a package that includes Disney Dining, you may be aware that many people end up with a lot of snack credits left over at the end of the trip. This usually results in purchasing bags of candy and package snacks to bring home.

We have done this every trip and that was even after eating snacks as a meal or two. I highly recommend planning at least 1 meal that is just snacks. Disney World Snacks are fantastic and there’s a wide variety of options. A budget Disney World trip is possible and these snacks can help.
These are also great ways to use snack credits for some Cheap Eats at Walt Disney World
Festival Booths at Epcot Wine and Food fest are full of Cheap Eats at Walt Disney World
Epcot International Wine and Food Festival is my favorite event at Disney World and enjoying tapas from the food festival booths using snack credits (or even a quick service credit for 3 tapas at the same booth) is my favorite use of snack credits. There’s also the international festival of the holidays and the festival of arts which have improved their food options since it started a few years ago. We have tried and only been able to get at most13 tapas for 4 of us for 2 meals basically 2-3 tapas for an adult and 1-2 tapas per child.
Eat Around the World at Epcot and enjoy some Cheap Eats at Walt Disney World
Truth be told we have only been to Epcot during the Wine and Food fest and Arts festival and have yet to simply snack around the world. But there are so many options that could be a meal. There are a lot of options for desserts as well.
