There are so many amazing restaurants at Walt Disney World to try out, but sometimes you don’t want a full meal, or sometimes you might get hungry in between meals and need a little something to get you through. This is where a snack might come in handy, and if you should happen to be in Epcot when the craving hits, then I highly suggest you check out these
Top 5 Epcot Snack Spots:
Sunshine Seasons – Head over to The Land pavilion in Future World and enjoy some goodies from this food-court style counter service eatery that features fresh salads, meats, sandwiches and Asian fare – all of which feature items grown on site at the Land’s greenhouses. For snacks you can choose from a large assortment of baked goods, including cookies, cupcakes, cheesecake, pies, and the always delicious strawberry shortcake. Assorted bottled beverages as well as coffee drinks are available here too
Karamell-Kuche – Located in the Germany area of the World Showcase, this spot features delicious baked goods and tons and tons of Werther’s caramel. Whenever I have visited this spot, the line has been out the door, and with good reason – their treats are irresistable! The Caramel Corn is one of their specialties, and is made fresh throughout the day, as are the caramel drizzled cookies, caramel apples, and assortment of chocolate/caramel covered items including grapes, pineapple, and pretzels. Even non caramel fans are sure to find something they will devour here!
LeSportsac And Disney Turn Mary Blair’s Artwork Into Fashion With The “It’s A Small World” Collection
LeSportsac and Disney began their partnership last summer – bringing us handbags, totes, and accessories featuring the artwork of Mary Blair, whose whimsical design can be seen in Disney’s “It’s A Small World” ride. The full line of products will include 5 limited edition collections, each inspired by a different country. The patterns themselves pay tribute not only to the characters, but also the architecture and designs featured throughout the ride itself.
Walt Disney World is an amazing place that really has something for everyone, and a vacation destination this great does NOT come cheap. There are plenty of ways you can save money in the Parks, but you have to get there first - so how can you help plan and save enough money to get you and your family to the Place Where Dreams Come True?
Here are a few ways:
Ask For Disney Gift Cards: Chances are pretty good you will have a Birthday/Anniversary/Christmas etc between now and your next Disney trip – so use that special occasion to your advantage and ask all your friends/family to give you Disney gift cards! You can buy them online or at any grocery store that has one of those gift card kiosks (usually they are available in $25 and $50 incriments there), or you can pick them up at your local Disney Store.
Convert That Allowance Into Souvenir Money: One of the biggest trip expenses (at least for me!) is souvenirs- Disney has so many great items available that I find myself needing purchase a new Mickey suitcase just to get them all home! This cost can get even higher if you have kids, so what I suggest doing is a few months before your trip, reward them for chores/good behavior etc with a $1 on a Disney Gift Card – it can be in place of their allowance or just for extra special good deeds, and you could even make a game out of it, and once it’s time to go, they can each have *their” gift card and you don’t have to worry about where the extra money for those souviners will come from.
I have talked about how great Fort Wilderness is, and it’s a place I spent many happy vacations as a kid. One thing that wasn’t so great about those vacation was the two days we spent in the car each way as we towed our camper from Upstate NY to Disney and back. Do I understand why my parents did it? Of COURSE – it was a HUGE money saver, as we didn’t have to pay for airfare and could eat many of our meals at the campsite, and the cost of renting a campsite is nothing compared to that of a resort or hotel.
While I was on those vacations, I always wondered what it would be like to stay in one of the Fort Wilderness Cabins – a great alternative to those who want a ‘home away from home’ but don’t want to tow their camper across the country to get it.
Walt Disney World vacations are amazing – there is so much to do and see and experience, and there is definitely a lot of buildup when planning – you check out all the restaurants and menus and rides and attraction information, so once it’s time, you are READY to go, and NOTHING can stop you!
…Well, ok, not nothing, we are only human after all, and sometimes – things happen, and it’s best to be as prepared as possible for anything and everything that could come your way while on your WDW vacation
That’s why I came up with the Disney Essentials Survival Kit – these are all the things I never leave home without when I am heading to WDW:
Portable Medicine Cabinet: I make sure I have plenty of medication to get us through whatever may befall us while at Disney. Items I include are: Tylenol/ibuprofin/aspirin, Excedrin, Pepto-Bismol (in pill form), Tums, Benadryl, Mucinex, Sudafed, DayQuil and NyQuil. I also make extra sure that I am up to date on prescription refills and that I have enough of all of them to get me through. I make sure to pack all of this in my Carry on luggage, just in case my checked bags get lost, then I know I won’t be without my medications, should I need them
*Please note – you CAN buy some of these over the counter medicine items at the Disney gift shops, but
the selection is VERY limited and tends to be very expensive as well – so I highly recommend you bring
your own if you can
