I love the idea of the pre-cooked frozen meals. We just found out we're staying in a cabin with my brother and parents over Memorial weekend (as close to camping as my mom can handle, lol). Anyway, I plan on cooking a whole chicken, shredding the meat and then freezing it so we can make up sandwiches etc. I'd thought about bringing everything along to cook, but...love the idea of doing this ahead of time. Thanks!

The schools around here do a lot of "walking taco" lunches ...I'd never heard of that until I moved down here. Basically, crush up a bag of fritos, then open, put a spoonful or so of taco meat, add topings and it's made to travel (spork style at school of course). We're planning on that - with taco meat we made at home and brought along

We had a one bedroom last year so we had a full kitchen. We had groceries delivered to our resort. I cooked breakfast almost every morning. Eggs and bacon, bacon, egg, and cheese croissants and breakfast tacos. Using the pre-cooked bacon made these dishes quick. I liked the fact that once we left our room, we had eaten so we could concentrate on hitting the parks.

The first morning I was cooking breakfast I also browned some chicken breast strips that I used for supper for fettucine alfredo (sauce already made in jar) and Romano Macaroni grill's Basil chicken in the box. We bought bagged salad and the veggies that we could cook in the bag.

Although I don't necessarily like cooking on vacation, it was nice to go back to our room a little earlier some evenings to enjoy relaxing at our resort and eat something other than park food. I plan to cook some of the days of the vacation we will be taking in two weeks as well.

For breakfast we've done panackes, eggs and bacon, biscuits.

We normally eat lunch and dinner at the parks but we have made sandwiches, spaghetti, lasagna and burgers in the room. Sometimes we will do a quick long weekend during the summer and are there more for the resort to relax so its nice just to do something quick in the room.

They call them Traveling Tacos here in MT. I'm from NY and had never heard of them at all. :

Traveling tacos here are made with Doritos on the bottom and the taco fixin's on top.

We keep meaning to cook more but other then leftovers our meals have been limited.

I did make bread last trip, no kneading necessary. You mix up the ingredients in the morning, let sit all day, stir, put into a dutch oven, let sit another hour or two, cook 1 hour. Made the room and hallway smell nice . We drive so i brought along my dutch oven and the few ingredients premeasured.

I found it pretty easy to measure out spices I need for some meals into those little snack-sized ziplock bags. I label what its for on the baggie and good to go! I make a quick marinara sauce for penne that I do that with and I have the can stuff delivered to the room with our Garden grocer order. I find it easier than packing up my spice cabinet or buying bottles of spices every time and it takes up practically no room in the suitcase!

Great ideas - I'll be using many of them (love the spices in the baggies and precooked bacon!)

I've never cooked at WDW, but I do cook on vacation at the beach a lot. One thing I don't want to do is cook anything that takes more than 1/2 hour to make.

Can you bring a crockpot? Put together your meal and it's ready when you come in for dinner. Lots of recipes online if you don't have meals you usually do. BBQ Chicken is a favorite...put on rolls and have some packaged slaw or potato salad with it.

Tortellini with jar Alfredo sauce.

Penne pasta with ground italian sausage cooked and mixed with favorite spaghetti sauce.

Peel and Eat Shrimp (our grocery often has sales on 2 lb frozen bags which I bring with me). Corn on the cob is great with this.

Packaged salads and bread to round out meals.

You're getting a lot of good advice. Have fun planning!

We have done spaghetti, lasagna, chicken parm, and do take advantage of the outdoor grills-burgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken, steak etc.

mfirst, I am intrigued by the "slow cook" roast. We leave in less than 3 weeks, staying at AKV 1-bedroom, first time with kitchen. How big of a roast do you use, and when you say "cover" with beef broth do you literally cover the whole roast or just put some in the pan. This would definitely be a favorite for my family. Plan on using my kitchen frequently so building a little meal book just to be ready.

We do a roast overnight in the oven, too. It was less than 3 lbs. I put one cup of water in the bottom of the pan with a packet of Italian dressing (dry), then covered it loosely with aluminum foil. Just remember to keep the oven temp low (especially if you plan to sleep in!).

We like these because they are quick and have more protein which holds us longer than cereal or oatmeal.
Love this idea thanks for sharing. Of course ceral,oatmeal,pop tarts are all quick and easy for in the morning when you want to eat and get onto the parks. We are mostly breakfast people for cooking in the villas,but we like fast simple and easy so lunches we usually do sandwhiches w/ some chips or maybe a frozen pizza. My DD loves the uncrustables they sell in the gift shops so we always grab a few for her during the week,For us it also depends if we are renting a car and going to the grocery store. We have been doing the dining plan recently so havent used the kitchen a whole lot but its nice to know its there for a down day or just grabbing a cold drink from the fridge.

All great ideas! We've never cooked anything but breakfast, but I'm sure one days we'll cook and it's great to have options.

We do bacon and eggs for breakfast, chicken in breadcrumbs, frozen Pizza, macaroni and cheese, pasta with sauce, deli meat and salad, hotdogs. For our next trip i was even thinking pre mixing my pancake mix at home and only having eggs and milk to add before frying until it occurred to me that carrying white powder on the plane might not be the cleverest idea we ever had.
