7 BEST Places to Eat at Disneyland on a Budget! (Disney Food Guide)

Where are the best places to eat at Disneyland on a budget? Don’t worry, I got you!

Planning a trip and actually going to the Disneyland Resort is expensive. There are a ton of ways to cut down on costs, like staying at a good neighbor hotel and walking to the parks each morning.

Another easy way to save money is to eat at some of Disneyland’s more budget-friendly restaurants. These locations are scattered around Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure.

They offer a good food, large portions, and sometimes free soda refills at a cheaper cost than some of the other restaurants at the theme parks.
