Taking the whole family out to dinner can be really expensive. I have two kids, so I definitely understand that paying for four is a lot more than paying for two and don’t even get me started on the beverages. The best way to save money is to cook at home, but that’s not always practical with crazy schedules and sometimes quite frankly we don’t want to. So instead, we decided to look for where kids eat free in Orlando.

We put together a list of restaurants where kids eat free in Orlando for those days that you can’t or don’t want to cook. We’re not judging!

Please ensure you contact the restaurant directly to ensure that they are still honoring the kids eat free promotion before stopping by.
