Be Allergic — to High Food Prices
Granola bars and carrot sticks have their place, but if you're going to spend the whole day in the park, chances are you'll want more than just snacks. But meals at Disneyland can add up quickly. In fact, a family of four can save over $100 by avoiding lunch, said Mike Scanlin, CEO of investment website Born to Sell.
The conundrum, for many, is how to avoid pricey restaurants without starving to death. One possible solution is food allergies.
Disneyland tries to prevent people from bringing their own meals into the park. But if you have food allergies, you get an open invitation to bring your own meals, and you can eat them inside the restaurants.
Just be prepared that it might raise eyebrows if an entire family or group claims to be food-sensitive. You might end up with an invitation to eat your personal food outside the gates.
