Alernative food after a swimming party?

I love planning parties but do try to keep within a budget.

One plan is for DS(to be 10) to take some friends to a waterpark about an hour away. The waterpark does do a party rate which includes a Burger King meal.

But I was thinking of paying per person, ie the non party rate, and doing something else for food. I wondered about getting some takeaway pizzas instead and eating them in the car on the way back. We have a 7-seater so they'd all be together. It seems like it'd be cheaper than a happy meal each.

Do you think that would be fun for them? Eating in the car on the way home would also mean getting them back a bit quicker as it's an hour each way and then 2 hours in the pool.

Or do you have any other suggestions? I don't fancy the idea of a picnic in the car with sandwiches etc. Going to a restaurant nearby will take me over budget.

I'd do the Bk thing tbh. It's just more of a treat to have a proper sit down meal imo and can you imagine what state your car will be in?!

My worry would be the state of the car to he honest. Greasy pizza and spilt drinks. sad
