Disney World Launches Its Own Family Meal Kit
Italian comfort food in the privacy of your own villa.
Move over, Blue Apron. Walt Disney World is expanding into the meal-kit business.
For guests staying in a one-bedroom villa or larger at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, you'll now have the option to prepare a pre-packaged dinner in your home away from home. The Family Meal Kit features all of the ingredients you need to make an entire meal, rather than having to leave the comfort of your suite to dine at costly nearby restaurants.
The kits are designed to feed a family of four. According to Disney Parks Blog, guests can enjoy a "Rigatoni Fiesolana that comes with a large garden salad, and garlic bread sticks." The Italian dish is made with large tube-shaped pasta covered in a thick and creamy tomato sauce, sausage, portabella mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, and fresh basil. Each meal kit has the ingredients listed and includes the preparation instructions. Basically, an empty stomach is all you'll need to bring with you on vacation.
As of now, this will be the only meal variety offered in the kit, and it's only available at Saratoga Springs Resort. But we expect that won't be the case for very long. You can purchase the packaged dinner for $49 (plus tax) at Artist's Palette Marketplace at Saratoga Springs.

Keep in mind that studios at the villa resorts aren't equipped with kitchens, so make sure you book the appropriate suite to prepare the meals.
