Out of all the things you do at Disneyland, eating is a must. Well, I suppose you don't have to eat, but I would highly recommend that you do. Through this, I will hopefully be able to guide you through a few of my favorite joints there and maybe drop a few money saving tips on the way.
First off, I think we should talk about health in general. Not healthy eating, but health as in you are going to be walking a lot, burning energy, and possibly sweating. Where am I going with this? Snacks! That's where! Now, I imagine that you'll be thinking that snacking at Disneyland could be pricey and I suppose that it could be if you didn't fill your backpack full of snacks. Did I mention you need a backpack. No? Well you do. And granola bars are a great energy booster and a good durable snack for a backpack. Because, let's face it, things get smashed in backpacks. No soft foods like muffins allowed in backpacks!

Okay, food! Food is yummy, usually, so where do I start? How's about the top then we cheap out? Okay? Good. I like eating at the Blue Bayou. Great restaurant (I'm 34 and I JUST learned how to spell "restaurant," my autocorrect usually makes me eat at restraints) near the top of what I am willing to pay. Most importantly it has a great atmosphere.

Character meals are fun as hell, too. Nothing beats giving Goofy a gooey pancake and syrup hug and then watching kids stick to him. But, I'm just gonna buzz those, skip quick serves and I am going to go straight for the wallet. No this is not a robbery. I'm helping you save, so sit down, but keep your hands in the air. Oh, and no sudden movements.

The main thing is to fuel yourself for the day, but don't take out a loan on your first born to do it.
