I'm talking about "40 Disney Dollars a Day!" Yep, it's that time again. My new friends (and I can now call them friends because we have actually spoken to each other on the phone) over at The Enchanted Tiki Talk Podcast recently put out Episode #6 where they played another round of this awesome game.
If you are not familiar with the rules, the game is simple. You have $40 to spend in one day at Walt Disney World on your food items and you must dine at one counter service location, one table service location with 18% gratuity, and have on snack item. All items should be something you'd really like to eat while at the parks. Sales tax is not counted.
Let's talk lunch.
I'm a huge fan of Restaurantosaurus (although I would rather sit by the lake at Flame Tree any day). It's not that the food is all that different or great, but I just love being there. Not sure what it is exactly, but I dig it. So for my somewhat boring choice I will be getting the Macaroni & Cheese Hot Dog served with apple slices for $8.79. Two of the best things on Earth smashed together on a plate at WDW? Ummm...yes please! I'm going to stick with an tap water at this meal because I just ate a pile of mac & cheese on a hot dog.
Lunch Total: $8.79
On to my snack of the day.
Walk on over to Upcountry Beverages with me. I am thirsty from all of that tap water earlier. I have a hankering for a Frozen Emperor Margarita for $8.99. That's right, I am daring to be different and want to get a little silly with a cold refreshing margarita.
Snack Total: $8.99
As established on the show this week, we are pretty much limited to Yak and Yeti. I am especially limited with my expensive snack option. I need to keep it light guys! I have to make up for the 1000 calorie alcoholic beverage I just had as well as the mounds of mac & cheese consumed at lunch. Therefore my choice is the Mandarin Chicken Salad - chilled chicken, romaine and iceburg lettuce, Mandarin oranges, almonds, sesame seeds, rice noodles and plum dressing for $15.99. I'll throw in a Coke for $2.59.
Dinner Total: $18.58 with a gratuity of 3.34 makes $21.92
For a Grand Total of $39.70!
