We are going to EuroDisney soon and was wondering if anyone could tell me how the prices for food is in Disney compared to Outside of Disney. We will be driving so not bothered about goingoutside the complex to get food which i would have thought to be cheaper but wife doesn't think so ??

It's fairly expensive for food in the park but outside you'll have a fair trek to get food as the resort is in the middle of nowhere.

the val d europe shopping centre has some eating places which are cheaper and as you exit the disney complex there are a few restaurants on your left hand side as you head towards paris which are nice and very reasonable prices.

Are you staying in a disney hotel ? we just took tons from the free brekkie buffet and made up a packed lunch,its continental so you are getting bread rolls, meat and cheese as well as loads of other stuff, perfect for packed lunches, they say they search you etc and dont let you take food in, but we did it every day for a week and never got stopped once. Lunch was sorted and then a few of the places just outside the park had ok deals on for dinner. Or as Barky says the shopping centre, go get stuff from there.

To be honest though I found the price of food in the park much of a muchness, its what I expected to pay and what I expected to get so wasn't bothered either way.

We are staying at the Sequoia Lodge and thats what the wife was talking about doing is taking loads from the breakfast buffet for breakfast and lunch so we just need to sort dinner.

And as i said we are driving so don't mind driving out to get dinner.

Oh you will be fine then, if you dont want anything too fancy just outside of the park there is McD's, a 'sports bar' place where they did a decent priced evening meal, nothing fancy right enough but if its only for a few days a baguette and some chips would do, well it did us anyway. The rainforest cafe if you want to splash out, but even then I dont remember it costing any more than I normal night out in the UK at say TGI's or something, there is a wee place we had a character brekkie too but we didn't eat there so have no idea of price sorry.
We really did just take the mick at brekkie and fill a plastic bag with munchables, made sure they were stuck at the bottom of the bag though for the "search" which is where they just glance at your bag and wave you on, just in case we got a jobsworth and the job was done, so I turned b&b in to a cheeky half board, I am thinking most other people do the same to save a bit of cash.
The shopping centre will provide you with tons of munchies too, its a holiday, you are allowed to have quick snacks and junk food on holiday............lol

We just got back on Saturday night from a 3 night stay at the Sequoia Lodge. When you go for breakfast don't go at around 8am as the queues are horrendous. We went down to breakfast at around 7.30am and went straight in with plenty of tables to choose from. By the time we left at 8am or a bit later there were hundreds of people waiting to get in.

For dinner we went to a place called Billy Bob's in Disney Village the first night. Got there about 7pm and walked straight in and got seated. By the time we left the queue was down the stairs and out the door. The food in the restaurant was fine and not too expensive, certainly not as bad as I thought it was going to be. They do a meal deal for Euro11.95 - chilli in a potato (vegetarian and meat option) or 1/2 chicken with bbq sauce and chips, chocolate brownie and a drink. That was really good, we had the chicken and there was plenty of food. You can pay 1 more euro and have a beer instead of a soft drink. Kids meals in there were Euro5.95, but not much choice.
The second night we went to the Sports Bar and had pizza, pasta, nachos and a drink each and it was more expensive than Billy Bob's and was the worst food we have ever had - cardboard pizzas, nachos were just tortilla crisps with little sachets of salsa to pour over, no cheese on them or anything. Truly awful place.
The third night we were going to go to Billy Bob's again but by the time we got there at 8pm the queue was out the front door so we just went to McDonalds (and waited 40 minutes to get served as it was totally packed out).

Best thing to do is book a restaurant in advance if you want to have a meal later on, say after 7.30pm. A lot of the restaurants do eat as much as you like buffets, however I felt they were very expensive and from what I've heard of them the food isn't much cop.

Sequoia Lodge is nice, even though we didn't see a great deal of it as we made the most of the Extra Magic Hours in the park and only really used the hotel for sleeping in.

Have fun.

We were 20 Euros for 2 adult meals and 2 Happy Meals. The Happy Meals worked out at 8 Euros for the two of them, nearly double the price compared to here!!

We did see a meal deal for about 12 Euros which included a ride up in the hot air balloon (you'll know what I mean when you get there and see the balloon) which might be worth asking about. You'd get amazing views.

Nah its not that expensive, we went for the 1st time a bunch of skint students (the whole trip including flights had cost us £30 each for 3 days thanks to the holiday inn making a major pricing error, fair enough there were 4 of us in a room but still, the error was HUGE.

Being a working lass studying as well I had plenty of disposable cash to spend, but some of the kids didn't, 1 was lucky if she had £100 to spend for the whole 3 days, so we had to budget for all of us, some could afford the best some couldn't, but we had to be fair so we didn't start class wars.

McD's was more than do-able, although the staff there are surly and I dont rate them at all for CS. The sports bar was under 10 euro's for a meal and a drink, and then we all had a blow out at the Rainforest Cafe, and most of the younger ones hit the nightclub for someone's birthday (that cant have been cheap) the rest of the stuff we got from the shopping centre, stuff that could be eaten cold, crisps, juice, a wee cheeky bit of alcohol for the ones who were of age.

When I went with the family we did the breakfast thing, nicked loads for lunch then spent a bit more on evening stuff, but it still cost less than I expected it to, maybe because I had heard so many people say it was ridiculously expensive etc so it left me thinking I would have to take more to spend. I guess it could be expensive, but if you are on here you are clearly savvy and a bit of a bargain hunter so I reckon you will be fine finding places to eat for mucho cheapness.

Thanks that's why I am seeing what others have done because I don't want to get there and find that I should have bought the half board meals aswell

I went last March and McDonalds is not expensive. It's probably the cheapest place in Disney to eat! Don't listen to the horror stories of it being £50 for 4 people, it's a load of rubbish.

We stayed at the Santa Fe and paid 24 euros each for a mexican buffet which was average so wouldn't recommend eating at the hotels.

You can always make ham rolls at breakfast and take them with you for the day ;)

Here is a list of all the restaurants in the parks and the village with menus and prices...

We had some funny looks making up ham rolls and wrapping them in tissue before stuffing them into our bags. :p

We had our bags searched going in but they only open them and look in, they don't rummage so just put the rolls at the bottom.

cheers for the info, not going to be as expensive as the wife was thinking
#14
Nah, plus, get down early for breakfast, and get over to the park first thing. Get the big rides done first thing else you'll be in queues. :)
#15
yeah we planning to go for breakfast by 7am and out of the hotel by 8am. And planning to spend one day in Paris seeing some of the sights also

when we went i saw a lot of people doing this, it was seriously hot when we went and the thought of putting cheese and meat rolls in a backpack/handbag for X amount of hours just seemed a bit yucky

Yeah probably wouldn't be a good idea on a really hot day.

Yeah we didn't go when it was hot, but if we had I would just have stuck a couple of those freezer cool blocks in, a hotel would stick them in their fridge for you to cool them down no bother.

we went last month - but stayed in a different hotel.

We did the McDonalds thing - 20 euos ish for 2 meals and 2 happy meals, you get an extra itmem in the happy meals, a youghurt type drink or pudding type thing - so i suppose thats why its cheaper. If you can ge tthere at 7.45 rather than 8 it makes a huge difference to the size of the queues. The other thing you can do (depending on the age of your little ones) is one of you queue for the food and the other go back to the room and shower them etc - by the time they are sorted, tea is there, and the next morning they just need a quick lick of the flannel and toothbrush and they are ready to go !

I took loads of bits like pringles, haribos and cereal bars for when we were in the queues in the park to fill in time.

also - before you go in the park there is the station - in the entrance bit there is a Spar type shop which sells sandwiches etc - but also po and water much cheape rthan in the parks, we went and got some each orning.

The other tip i would give is the autograph books were either 5 or 9 euros depending on which one you chose - so if you see a disney one in a poundshop or simialr before you go you'll save a fortune !

Have a lovely time (_;)
