Good morning, folks! Welcome to the weekend! Hey! We’re a bit late to the WDW Main Street “$80 a day” parties, but now that the gang has arrived at our favorite park, we’ll finally toss in our two cents!
Hear Doug, Dennis, John, and the cast of the Mickey Dudes Podcast at:
Episode #363 – $80 A Day at Epcot with The Mickey Dudes!
So. What are the $80 a day “challenges”, you ask? Well, what would you eat if you only had $80 to spend on food during your day at Epcot?
Trouble is … Mrs. All in WDW and I think that $80 per person is way too much. We think we can do much, much better. Will it be under $80 per couple, however? Let’s see!
Fountain View (featuring Starbucks coffee)!
Let’s face it … Mrs. All in WDW is one of the world’s biggest Starbucks fans. Therefore, we’ll have to start with a breakfast in Future World.
We’ll order two Tall freshly brewed coffees – Pike Place Roast for the Mrs. and Veranda Blend Blonde Roast for me – at $2.49 per cup.
For food, I think that their Sausage, Egg, and Cheddar Classic Breakfast Sandwich ($4.99) is one of the best breakfast sandwiches anywhere! Mrs. All in WDW will have an Almond Biscotti for $1.99.
Total (with tax): $12.80
Yorkshire County Fish Shop!
There’s no doubt. One of our favorite activities is to enjoy some Fish and Chips while quenching our thirst in the Rose & Crown Pub.
Mmmmm. Two crunchy, flaky, delicious strips of Fish served with Chips! We’ll take two orders please … at $10.99 each.
Then, how about two pints? Mrs. All in WDW will take a blend of Bass and Harp. It is a Specialty Blend called a Golden. Price? $9.00!
Myself? The only place I ever have one of these is at WDW – a Boddingtons English Pub Ale. Another $9.00!
Total (with tax AND tip): Yorkshire ($23.52) and Rose ($23.26)
Finally, dinner at …
We might share, to be honest. Let’s order their Oak-grilled Rotisserie Chicken. It’s normally served with Black Beans and Yellow Rice for $12.29.
How about the Pork Loin? Served with Mashed Potatoes, Barbecue Sauce, and Corn on the Cob, it’s $13.99.
Mrs. All in WDW and I would likely ask for some “subs” on the sides, however. Sunshine’s Oak-grilled Salmon is typically served with green beans.
We’d ask to sub all of the black beans, rice, mashed potatoes, etc. with green beans, I’m pretty sure. They’ve done it for us many times before!
Finally, we’d need to wash dinner down with another beverage. We’d prefer two Yuenglings at $6.50 a can!
Total (with tax): $42.03
How’d we do, my friends? Did we stay under budget? Let me get my calculator. Hmmmm …
Grand Total: $101.61
Nuts! We couldn’t do it! Of course, we could drop the beer. That would keep us in line, but, then, it’s vacation! Budget be darned, we have to have adult beverages! Cheers, everyone!
