The shop just inside the train station stocks a variety of things and is quite reasonable. -
we stocked up on crisps and snacks along with some wine and beer for the room.
Enjoy your stay Its great.

My one treat would be to book Cafe Mickey for dinner one night - foods good and the character interaction is brilliant - it neednt cost a fortune, last time I just had a pizza and drink - well worth it IMO

We got crisps and snacks in the petrol station near Santa Fe which was quite cheap, plus wine and beer which was quite pricey. We've been looking at menus and will probably be going to Earl of Sandwich most days, the sandwiches are only 5.50 euros! We'll share a drink and won't need a dessert as we fill up loaaads at breakfast so we're hoping this will work well for us and leave us extra pennies for some nice dinners

Also, we found the food on the Eurostar to be megaaaaaa pricey so this time we'll be taking plenty of our own drinks and snacks to keep us going!

We take our own snacks with us, crips etc in the case and we go to the garage near Sante Fe to buy some beers and bottles of pop for the room, I usually fill up a cola bottle and take my own to the parks, they are very expensive in the parks,

There is an M&S food at St Pancras which can be useful for Eurostar.

You can hire a kettle for your room (refundable deposit, but quite high, maybe E25?) and we took a couple of mugs and sachets of cappucino for when we got in in the evening. I have not been, but I have heard the petrol station at Santa Fe is reasonable for drinks and crisps etc. They are not easy to buy in Disney village
We always eat well at breakfast and make cheese+ham rolls to take into the park, I used to get really embarassed about DH doing this and tried to stop him but now I've seen so many people do it and it is almost accepted by the hotel staff that I actually pack sandwich bags now. At most we buy a coffee and a brioche during the day and eat in the disney village at night. There is no charge for having a kettle in the room, just a deposit in case you don't return it, sometimes we've found a kettle left in the room anyway, I take teabags/coffee etc with me and if I can those little mini milk cartons, but the hotel shop normally sells 1/2pt milk cartons, we pinch a couple of mugs from breakfast to make drinks in the room, and if we want a drink the hotel shops sell cans of beer and bottles of wine, not as cheap as the petrol station but cheaper than the hotel bar! I personally think it is the fast food at DLP that is overpriced eg the hotdogs at Caseys etc but don't find the other restaurants too expensive considering what you can get, Cafe Mickey is expensive but you are paying for the characters too. Earl of Sandwich wasn't open last time we went but definitely going to try it next trip, only problem for us was that there aren't really any 'plain' sandwiches for the kids. There is also a few shops in the train station where you can buy crisps etc to snack on in the park, and we always take water bottles and fill them up at the water fountains all over the parks

Don't forget you can just have a main course in cafe Mickey if you want.

100 a day for 4 should be fine

Dont forget that you can always upgrade your breakfast from the hotel to a character breakfast at cafe mickey! you just pay the difference, we have done that a couple of times! you need to ask them at the dining reservations in the hotel, not at the reception desk! a bit of a cheaper way to get a character breakfast! lol!

hth
which hotel are you staying in?
