Blaze Pizza is a mouthwatering DIY pizza spot at Disney Springs. The 11″ pizza is great shareable food. The beauty of this spot is that you can build a custom pizza that can easily be shared with a half-and-half topping division.

To go as affordable as possible, choose a signature menu item like the Red Vine pizza. This 11‚ÄĚ pizza comes in at only $10.45 and is loaded with Ovalini Mozzarella, tomatoes, Parmesan, basil, red sauce, and an olive oil drizzle, all on a fresh homemade crust. Want to order a bit more¬†food? Add the simple side salad for $5.95.¬†

If you want some out-of-this-world nachos that you can share as a meal, try the Nachos Grande at Planet Hollywood at Disney Springs. This star-studded table service restaurant serves up American favorites like burgers, sandwiches, appetizers, and more. The Nachos Grande is only $17.99 but could be split between three people as a meal. Disney Springs dinner for only $5.96 each? We’ll take it!

Barbecued Ribs Full-Slab Meal

P&J’s Southern Takeout,¬†Fort Wilderness¬†Resort

Southern food is known for being yummy, rich, and filling. P&J’s Southern Takeout is a great spot to snag melt-in-your-mouth barbecue at Fort Wilderness Resort and dine on a budget. There are several splittable options on this menu, but my choice is the Barbecued Ribs Full-Slab Meal. This family-sized meal is $27.49 and can be split between as many as 4 people.

This southern lunch spread is served with a full slab of ribs, cornbread, coleslaw, and mashed potatoes with gravy. Even if you aren’t staying at this Disney Resort, this deal is worth popping by to enjoy after a theme Park day in the Magic Kingdom.

Enjoy a taste of authentic Spanish cuisine on the go while sticking to your Walt Disney World Dining budget. Pepe by José Andrés offers succulent sandwiches in quick service restaurant format. You can’t go wrong when ordering from the menu of Pressed Bikini Sandwiches. The great news about these rich sandwiches is that they are sharing size.

Try the Bikini de Jamón y Queso for $14, which is loaded with Serrano Ham and Manchego Cheese. Add on a side of Patatas Bravas (fried potatoes, aioli, and brava sauce) for $8, and you have a delicious lunch for $11 each.

Fun table service dining experiences don’t mean you can’t share food. In fact, some restaurants like T-REX at Disney Springs Marketplace have menu items that are so large they are meant to split! The Megasaurus Burger is a jaw-dropping size.

For $23.99, you can get this upsized version of Bronto Burger built with 3 juicy beef burger patties, lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles. The entree is served with a side of seasoned fries. You can even add bacon or mushrooms for an additional $3.99.

If you are looking to split breakfast to save money or your family is filled with lighter breakfast eaters like mine- this tip is for you. Tonga Toast is a Walt Disney World Resort dish that Disney foodies know and love. This jazzed-up tropical French toast is $17, and consists of banana-stuffed French Toast rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with a strawberry Compote and your choice of ham, spiced ham, bacon, or sausage. I always split an order with my husband and add an extra side of bacon for $5 if we feel extra hungry.

We covered other¬†Disney Park¬†shareable¬†dining recommendations in the first two articles in this series, but we’re back with another¬†Hollywood Studios shareable eat. Catalina Eddie‚Äôs is a Sunset Boulevard restaurant in this¬†Disney Park that specializes in pizza, salads, breadsticks, pasta, and the like. The shareable plate we love at this dive is the Pepperoni Pizza served with a¬†Caesar Salad¬†for only $11.29

This lunch-sized meal is perfect for splitting and means you may have room for dessert! Try the decadent Enchanted Rose for $5.79. It’s made with a dark chocolate mousse, Morello Cherry-Chocolate shortbread cookie, whipped cookies’ n cream fluff, and covered in gilded chocolate-covered cocoa nibs. Yum!

If you are searching for a shareable seafood option, try out the Crustacean Trio at T-REX at Disney Springs. For $32.99, you can snag an entree of coconut shrimp, shrimp scampi, whiskey-glazed shrimp, Raptor rice, and seasonal vegetables. This hearty helping means you’ll have plenty of food to share Рespecially if you enjoy an appetizer before your entree. 

Sharing any of these meals will ensure you have a great¬†Disney experience¬†while saving your budget and limiting¬†food waste. Spend that heard earned cash in other ways around Disney’s Animal Kingdom, EPCOT‚Äôs¬†World Showcase,¬†or your¬†Disney Resort. Happy¬†dining,¬†and remember, sharing is caring!

About Katie Chapman

Hey There! I am a Georgia native with a passion for writing, traveling, cooking, decorating, pugs and of course all things Disney. Growing up in South Georgia just a few hours from Walt Disney World made for a magical childhood. Some of my best memories were made on Main Street U.S.A. with my sister watching SpectroMagic nighttime parade or beside my grandparents, parents and extended family at Chef Mickey’s celebrating on a family vacation. Epcot was my favorite park from a young age and I credit it with my interest in and love for international travel. As a kid I loved meeting characters and watching films around World Showcase and could spend hours exploring each of the countries in Epcot. These days, my husband and I get away to explore a new country whenever we can and even incorporate trips to The Disney Store and Disney Parks around the world in our travels. One of our travel goals is to visit every Disney Park in the world. I love writing about Disney restaurants, park tips, Disney outfit inspiration and Disney history. Pocahontas is my favorite Disney Princess (90s kid here!) but Mr. Toad is my spirit animal. When I’m not at Disney I’m reading about park history, watching Disney documentaries and shopping vintage Disney merch for park outfits. I never pass up a reservation to Ohana, an empty seat on Living with the Land or a Violet Sake.
