Review Narcoossee’s Disney Grand Floridian Restaurant

Travel Tips: Eating off children’s menu can save money

Narcoossees Restaurant Grand Floridian Disney

When I got to Disney and was waiting for the Fireworks by listening to the Orchestra inside the Grand Floridian, I realized I was hungry.I went over to the restaurant in the lobby area and it was Disney pricey but asked to look at the children’s menu. I could get a four course meal for $9. I went back and listened to the piano player who switches off every half hour with the orchestra.

Many times when I go to the theme parks, I eat off the children’s menu. Yes the portion is smaller but probably good size for eating less and eating healthy. The price is lower. If you are hungry later you do it again. This way you get two healthier  meals (depends on your choices) for the price of one unhealthy adult meal.

I decided to check out Narcossee’s down near the Marina where I was going to watch the fireworks. I have never eaten there but decided to continue there even though it was now raining. The children’s menu was pricey like normal restaurants but much less than the $30 and up adult menu. I can not image any meal being worth $30 but that is me.

I sat at the bar since there wasn’t any seating without reservations. when I asked for the children’s menu, I was told it was only for children under 9, after some discussion, the bartender relented. I ordered the Flat Iron Steak which was  very good and cooked perfectly. The steak came with sting beans and I substituted broccoletts for the mashed potatoes. Never heard of broccoletts before but they were excellent. Surprise the dinner came with great warm bread and butter. This was perfect for a late night dinner. And milk which he also balked at but the menu said it was included.

Yes, I forgot to take a picture, therefore I substituted pictures and merged them. Not sure if everyone can get them to let you order the child’s portion but be persistent. It will save you money.

Do you ever order off the children’s menu to save money at theme parks?

  • This is a really clever way to save money when travelling. I think some people are nervous to order from the kids menu because they are fearful that they may be denied/receive attitude from the owner of the resturant in question. I have found a few times that certain, smaller food places can get a bit funny about it however for the most part, people are fine and if I get a funny look or two I simply respond with – ‘I’m just not that hungry! At the end of the day, they’re making money and you’re still the customer, regardless of the size of the meal you order! Great tip/

  • I too agree with Jack that this is a great way to save money when traveling specially to disney. And it is true about getting an smaller size meal and healthier because we tend to buy healthy food for our kids but not all the time for us. I’ll consider this when traveling. :)
