There are literally hundreds of restaurants inside Disney World, ranging from snack stands to luxurious, Michelin-starred restaurants. How do you know where you can go to avoid breaking the bank on your next trip?
We’ve analyzed the menu of EVERY quick service restaurant in the Disney World theme parks to figure out which ones are the CHEAPEST in each park. If you’re planning a budget-friendly vacation, this is the guide for you!
A couple of quick caveats before we begin…
First, we only looked at quick service restaurants. We left out the table service restaurants (which will almost always be more expensive than the cheap service options) and snack stands.
We defined a snack stand as anywhere where you CAN’T get a full meal. If the stand or kiosk didn’t sell full entrées, it didn’t make the list. Note that we do sometimes love snacking around the parks instead of eating full meals, so it’s always an option to just grab a few different snacks and make those into your lunch!
We also only looked at quick service restaurants inside the theme parks. There are lots more options at the Disney World hotels and in Disney Springs! If y’all like this post and want us to do the same thing for the hotels and Springs, let us know in the comments.
Now that you know the rules, let’s get into the cheapest quick service restaurants in every single Disney World park.
Pinocchio Village Haus is our winner for the cheapest quick service in Magic Kingdom! Entrées at this spot range from $9.79 to $12.79.
Most of the entrées are $12.79, including all the flatbreads. There are a few different flatbread flavors here, like the Buffalo Chicken Flatbread and the Pepperoni Flatbread.
The cheapest entrée is the Caesar Salad. You can add chicken to it, which brings the price up to $11.79, and you can also grab Chicken Strips for $10.99.
Runner-Up: Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café
The next cheapest option at Magic Kingdom is Cosmic Ray’s! Entrées range from $9.99 to $13.49.
This Tomorrowland quick service spot has burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken strips, and a couple of salads on the menu.
Most of the options fall in the $12-$13 category, but you can get a Greek Salad for just $9.99, or snag some Chicken Strips for $10.99.
Price Ranges of the Other Magic Kingdom Quick Service Restaurants:

Disney’s Hollywood Studios
You might have walked right past Dockside Diner without even realizing that this spot has a couple of hidden gems! Plus, it’s the cheapest quick service option in Hollywood Studios.
At Dockside Diner, the menu has a few different kinds of hot dogs and Bacon Macaroni and Cheese. If you just can’t decide between those two options, grab the Bacon Macaroni & Cheese Hot Dog!
A plain hot dog and the mac ‘n’ cheese each cost a little over $10, and the two specialty hot dogs each cost $12.79.
Runner-Up: Woody’s Lunch Box
If you’re not in the mood for hot dogs, head over to Woody’s Lunch Box, which also has plenty of cheap meal options.
The Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich is just $10.29 (pro-tip: get it with a side of Tomato-Basil Soup for an extra $3.99), and one of our FAVORITE lunches in all of the park — the Totchos — is $10.49.
We also like the BBQ Brisket Melt, but that’s a bit more expensive at $13.29.
Don’t forget that you can find plant-based options for the Totchos and Grilled Cheese here.

- Fairfax Fare — $10.49 – $15.29
Despite the fact that Les Halles has the cheapest lunch option in EPCOT, we always end up spending way too much there because everything looks SO. GOOD.
However, if you go in with a budget, you can get some really tasty options that definitely won’t break the bank. We love the Bisque de Homard, which is just $6.95, for lunch!
Other great lunch options include the Croissant Jambon Fromage for $8.95 and the Quiche Lorraine for $7.95.
Don’t forget to grab dessert!
Overall, entrées here range from about $6.95 to $10.95, making it the cheapest quick service meal in ANY Disney World theme park.
Runner-Up: Sunshine Seasons
Sunshine Seasons in The Land pavilion is another great choice for a cheap meal.
You can get the Birria Tacos for just $9.99, or snag some Vegetable Korma for $10.29.
We love the Turtle Brownie for dessert, which costs $5.29.
Entrées range in price from $9.99 to $13.79.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom
We went back and forth on whether to include this stand in the list because it’s a snack stand but it has some pretty hearty options. In the end, we decided to include it but give you TWO runner-up options.
Smiling Crocodile has a few different kinds of tacos! Grab the Pulled Pork Street Tacos, Chicken Street Tacos, or the Street Corn Tacos.
All come with a side of chips and salsa, which kicks these up from a snack to more of a meal.
Each taco dish costs $9.99, or you can get just a side of chips and salsa on its own for $4.99.
Runners-Up: Pizzafari and Restaurantosaurus
Pizzafari is the next cheapest option, with several entrée options under $12.
There’s a Chicken Parmesan Sandwich for $11.99, a Cheese Pizza for $11.29, or a Caesar Salad with Chicken for $11.99.
The pizza here isn’t our favorite (there are more interesting, unique eats in Animal Kingdom), but it’s a cute restaurant with very familiar, approachable menu items.
The next runner-up is Restaurantosaurus in DinoLand U.S.A.
Restaurantosaurus has pretty classic theme park food — think hot dogs, burgers, chicken nuggets, etc. There’s a Cobb Salad on the menu, too, if you want a healthier option!
Entrées here range in price from $9.79 to $14.79.
Price Ranges of the Other Animal Kingdom Quick Service Restaurants:
