Eating Healthy At Walt Disney World

So, it's almost February. For many people, that means one month into your resolution for the New Year. I feel you all on this! I have been doing the Beachbody T-25 workout and it is kicking my booty! 

Now, flash forward to maybe one of the other things you want to do this year- take your family to Disney. 

Your eyes are as big as Mickey waffles- you are going to bed at night dreaming of a giant juicy steak from Yachtsmans Steakhouse, a bath tub of Cheddar Cheese Soup from Le Cellier, followed by the Kitchen Sink from Beaches & Cream Soda Shop.
But wait- what about that diet!?! This is a problem many guests face. Those souvenir-stuffed suitcases aren't the only baggage they are bringing home- there's a few extra inches around their waste as well.

There's no reason you can't satisfy BOTH of your resolutions, should that be something you choose. 
Believe it or not, there are actually healthy options at Disney theme parks. 

At Walt Disney World, you have all kinds of options. Imagine going to Crystal Palace for lunch. You can dine on turkey, a variety of salads, shrimp, and mussels. You can head to Epcot and taste some of the best tasting sushi you'll find in the United States at the Japan Pavilion, or even grilled veggie tacos at La Hacienda de San Angel. On top of that, there is fresh fruit located all over the parks, including food carts!

At Disneyland, you can feast on plenty of healthy options as well. At Cars Land, you can stop at Flo's V-8 Cafe and eat some of the best Veggie Tater Casserole you could ever imagine! Kids meals come with the option of grapes or carrot sticks. There's plenty of fish and chicken options throughout the park.

Unfortunately Disney is missing one final piece of the "Dreams Come True" piece- where your metabolism reverts back to your middle/high school years and you can eat whatever you please. The other thing you'll need to remember- you're going to be getting a lot of exercise... expect to walk at Walt Disney World! So go ahead- you are on vacation, go ahead and have a Dole Whip or two. Just don't go overboard, if you want to stick to your diet.

And the other resolution you may be interested in keeping? Keeping a little more money in your bank account? Well, you can go to Disney and not break the bank! Disney has all kinds of discounts they offer throughout the year, such as free dining. Right now, they are offering up to 30% on select dates. 

Now, let's make those resolutions come true!
