Disney Park Steals and Deals

The Senior Class of 2015-2016 goes to Disney for their senior trip.

Going to Disney for senior trip was awesome. You get to spend five days with all your friends in the sunshine state. You have the freedom to roam around Disney and go to all the attractions you want. It truly is a magical experience. But in order to make the most magical place on earth so magical, it will cost you some bank. If you’re a senior who wants to save some cash, and not blow all your money on food, I’ll show you some of the best steals in the park that, despite the low price, will still satisfy your hungry stomach.

Roulé Lard and Fromage ($3.95) from Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie

For only $3.95, you can score this cheesy bacon filled pastry. It is larger than a grown man’s fist, and it is great for breakfast or a light lunch. It is delicious and has real pieces of bacon instead of fake bacon bits. In addition, the Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie has some other notable steals such as the Pissaladière—a cheese, tomato, and olive flatbread—for only $4.50, or the Croissant Jambon Fromage for $4.75.


Giant Pickle (1.99) from various resort food courts

I am a huge fan of pickles. I guess that sounds odd, but there’s something about the slightly sour but also savory flavor and the crunch you get when you bite into a pickle. I could eat a full jar in one sitting. So, the fact that you can buy giant pickles in Disney was pretty exciting, and the fact that they’re only $1.99 is even better. These pickles are the size of the ones you get in the big barrel at a Deli, and despite their size, they still have the awesome crunch.


Assorted Mediterranean Salads for Two (12.99) from Restaurant Marrakesh

For only $12.99 you get very large portions of Falafel, Sundried Tomato Hummus, Roasted Eggplant Purée, and Tabouleh. I actually ordered this for dinner and it was very big, especially for the price. Most dinner entrees at Restaurant Marrakesh—the Moroccan restaurant in Epcot—cost close to 20 dollars. But this is much cheaper and allows you to sample multiple Moroccan specialties.

Disney has great food, ranging from many different cultures and cousins, to grab and go around the park and resorts. And since the expenses of a Disney trip can add up, these bang for your buck items can help you save during your senior trip.
