You may be surprised to learn that some popular dishes served at table service restaurants at WDW can be found at a few quick service spots for a cheaper price! This is great for guests on a budget who want to indulge in some of Disney's finest foods, as well as for guests who are on the Quick Service Dining Plan.
Creme Brulee-Many restaurants include Creme Brulee's on their dessert menus; and many of them put their own spin on this creamy, custard dessert; but if you want to enjoy it in its classic form, stop by Sunshine Seasons to enjoy theirs! A vanilla Creme Brulee is served at Les Chefs de France for around $8; but you can enjoy Sunshine Season's for around $4!
Tonga Toast-This breakfast item is one of Disney's most popular dishes. What is it? It's sourdough bread covered in brown sugar and stuffed with bananas! It is served at the Polynesian's Kona Cafe for around $13; but you can enjoy it for about $5 or $6 downstairs at Captain Cook's Snack Company. However, do keep in mind that Kona Cafe's version comes with a few sides when Captain Cook's does not.
Clam Chowder-Liberty Tree Tavern at the Magic Kingdom serves up a bowl of Clam Chowder for $7; but just down the street at Columbia Harbour House, guests can enjoy Clam Chowder for about $5! Columbia Harbour House doesn't skimp on the clams either, we know this from experience!
Zebra Domes-The most popular dessert at Animal Kingdom Lodge is Zebra Domes, a unique, creamy, delicious dessert that we highly recommend. You can enjoy Zebra Domes at Boma, which is a buffet, for about $35 to $40 per person. But if you venture to The Mara, this resort's counter service spot, you can feast on a five pack of Zebra Domes for about $4!
Fish and Chips-At the United Kingdom pavilion at Epcot, the Rose and Crown serves up the traditional English meal of Fish and Chips for just under $20. But next to this restaurant, at the Yorkshire County Fish and Chips, you can enjoy two hearty strips of fish and a serving for chips for around $9.
Rice Cream-Rice Cream is a sweet, rice pudding found at the Norway pavilion in Epcot. At Akershus Storybook Dining at this pavilion, a helping of rice cream is offered on the dessert platter guests are given. It costs about $38 for an adult to enjoy a meal at Akershus; but across the pavilion at Kringla Bakeri og Cafe, you can have this dessert for $3!
Cheese Plate-Cheese plates can be found on several menus at WDW restaurants; but there is a cheese plate offered at Boulangerie Patisserie at the France pavilion in Epcot for about $6.
Ham and Cheese Quiche-Also at Boulangerie Patisserie, guests can have a Ham and Cheese quiche for about $4. Meanwhile, at Les Chefs de France, a Ham and Cheese Quiche costs $15.
Dole Whip-This chilly, pineapple flavored, soft-serve treat is, next to a Mickey Premium Bar, the most famous dessert at WDW. You can relish this treat at the Magic Kingdom for $4. Meanwhile, the Polynesian's Captain Cook's Snack Company is famous for their Dole Whip soft serve machine; and if you are on the Disney Dining Plan, you can use a Dole Whip as your free dessert that comes with your meal, without having to use a snack credit!
So if you are paying out of pocket, using the Quick Service Dining Plan, or want to make the most of your standard Disney Dining Plan, consider sho
