View Full Version : Offsite for lunch?
06-29-2011, 08:02 PM
Do any of you ever go right offsite for lunch or is it way too much trouble? We are going during value season so the hours are shorter. We usually open parks and close them but we do take our time eating lunch and enjoying scenery but I'm just wondering if leaving the parks to eat occasionally is advised or not as far as what the parking might be like when we return, etc...
If lunch is the only reason you are leaving I wouldn't think it would be worth the hassle of leaving. But if you were headed back to your resort/condo/townhouse for a break, I would consider getting lunch on your way.

I thought this might be the case. We always thought we would take breaks but we never do. We usually get a snack and sit around somewhere for awhile and relax but we aren't huge fans of leaving the park.

We always take breaks back to our resort, but we pretty much never leave WDW property once we're there. So out of the park for lunch, yes, off-site, no.

Thanks, Vicki. I remember you from helping me plan my first two trips.

Just read in another thread you are staying off-site. I haven't stayed off-site yet, but am planning on it for future trips b/c of cost and family of 5. You could look at eating off-site 2 ways...For you, it would force you to take a break and return OR you could do 3/4 days and eat dinner at an off-site restaurant. Staying off-site, I keep thinking grabbing dinner to take back to the condo would be nicer for the kids to unwind after being in the parks all day. If you are taking breaks and returning, lunch off would definitley get you to go back and rest.

As others have posted, I would only do it if I was heading back to my townhome/resort/hotel room that is offsite.

Even when I stay offsite, I'm usually hungry before I'm ready for my mid-day break. We *never* have lunch anywhere other than a park, unless we are having a sleep-in day.
