    Good luck on being frugal at Disney. lol. We went about 10 years ago or so, and
    one bottle of soda pop was $2.50, I could have croaked.

    lol. My squeaky cheap
    heart almost couldn’t take it.

    This really goes for any vacations that you’re driving to. I’ve heard people prepare meals ahead of time, freeze them, bring a crock pot and warm them up in the crock pot. Of course you’d have to have a fridge in your hotel room or constantly refill your cooler up w/ ice each day.

    Another tip I received from reading America’s Cheapest family is ~ when they’ve flown .. after arriving they go to the local thrift store, buy a crock pot, go to Wal-mart or whatever and buy canned foods and place them in the crock pot for meals .. no fridge no eating out.

    Then they just donated the crock pot to whomever.

    Monica’s right..you can spend as much as you want or as little. We’ve gone to many parks like this. If you eat a good breakfast in the morning a light lunch in the park and supper when you leave food doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

    My kids had always rather ride the rides and have fun instead of eating.
