I also find that I get a severe case of Hanger when I’m furiously walking around the park in circles trying to find something nice and quick that isn’t just fries ! (Hangry = Hungry Anger)
Have a good breakfast !
But when you’re a theme park food hater, needs must !
So whether it’s eating at your hotel, grabbing some toast or cereal at your villa, or stopping off at IHOP on your way to the park, breakfast is a winner !
Starbucks snacks !
On our last trip i discovered the absolute wonder that is an egg, spinach and feta cheese wrap at Starbucks. It is DELIGHTFUL, couple it with a coffee and you’re good until the afternoon !
My all time favourite (and super filling snack) is a huge Cinnamon roll at Gaston’s tavern. They’re so big, that I’m sure they’re made to share but I take down that giant cinnamon-y beast by myself and I’m good until later afternoon.
If you’re at the Universal Parks, this is super easy. Just head out into CityWalk where there is a plethora of awesome places to go for something quick – Panda Express and Breadbox are perfect for an on the go bite to eat, and Cowfish is great if you have a little more time to spare.
Book your ADRs wisely !
I’d rather book an ADR for lunch because I know that the table service restaurants tend to fill up during lunch time with families that may leave the park earlier. Yak & Yeti is my go to table service to get a reservation for in Animal Kingdom, Mama Melrose is another I always make sure to get in Hollywood Studios. At Epcot, I play “Amanda vs Food” and try to tackle the GIGANTIC pizzas at Via Napoli. (FYI food always wins….)
and I try my best to get reservations at Be Our Guest so that I can enjoy my kids grilled cheese sandwich meal ! Which brings me to my next point
Order from the kids menu.
Kids can be picky, I’m picky… So sometimes I find a little golden nugget, like Macaroni cheese or a mini pizza and I’ve gone from the Incredible Hulk back to a pleasant Snow White in 10 minutes
Pack some snacks !
The Simpsons food court.
There’s plenty of choices in here, so even the pickiest of eaters will find something that they like !
FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL !
Now you may notice that SeaWorld isn’t mentioned on this list.
That’s because I never seem to have this problem at SeaWorld, Seaport Pizza and the Seafire in, both situated on the waterfront serve some great dishes !
