Vacationing at Walt Disney World is so many things – fun, amazing, filled with memories, and – it can also be a bit pricey. There are tons of ways to save money on your WDW vacation, and one of my favorite ways is to practice the preschool-taught principle of SHARING my snacks! Normally, I would never advocate sharing food – but there are some items at WDW that are too delicious (and too big!) not to share with someone you love! Here are my Top 5 Picks for meals/snacks that are shareable money savers:

Cheesy Pesto Bread at the Art Of Animation Resort – this yummy treat can be purchased for a snack credit at the Resort’s Landscape of Flavors food court – it includes two pieces of fresh bread topped with pesto and mozzarella cheese and served with marinara sauce for dipping – the perfect savory mid-day treat

Sharing Bfinger

The Butterfinger Cupcake at Starring Roles in Disney’s Hollywood Studios – This cupcake is insanely huge, and also insanely delicious! It’s a moist chocolate cupcake with a fudge center, and it’s topped with a mound of vanilla buttercream that is covered in a chocolate shell with tons of Butterfinger Bits in it. You may go into sugar overload if you eat the whole thing on your own – so it’s really best for your health to share it. An important side note – many specialty cupcakes here and at other locations around WDW are on the large side so they work really well for sharing

The Bounty Platter – This breakfast plate is available in some form at most WDW Resort quick service locations, and it consists of a Mickey waffle/pancake, a biscuit, breakfast meat (sausage/bacon), scrambled eggs, and breakfast potatoes. It costs about $9, and is definitely big enough to split between two adults (or even 3 smaller kids!) – talk about a breakfast bargain!

Sharing CinnRoll

Cinnamon Roll at Gaston’s Tavern – These big beauties used to be available at the Main Street Bakery, but luckily they have not vanished – as a similar version can be found at Gaston’s! They are served warm and fresh (and sometimes with extra frosting if you ask nicely!), and are huge – a perfect afternoon pick me up in the form of cinnamon and sugary goodness

Sharing Burger

The Disney Burger – Found all over the World, these are pretty standard as far as burgers go – many are now served on a wheat bun, and almost all of them can be topped with cheese, bacon, and other assorted condiments. They are pretty big, and come with a giant side helping of French fries – which makes this a pretty good meal to share if you’re in the mood for a burger (this particular one came from Tomorrowland Terrace and the burger was great but for me it was the fries that stole the show!)

Hopefully this gives you some ideas as to how you can save some money on Disney Dining on your next trip – and if you want to go further and maximize your snack credits then read on here!
