Healthy Food at Disney World

Healthy Food at Disney World

Eating healthy at Disney World is by no means impossible, in fact, it has become easier with time. It also will fit well with planning your Disney vacation on a budget.  I know that sometimes healthy eating means spending more money, but it won’t in this case.  Here are a few options for healthy eating at Disney.

You can prepare your own meals by having a few groceries in your room. All Disney hotel rooms come with at least a mini-fridge. You can take a look at the article I link to at the end of this about bringing groceries to Disney.

Though breakfast is the easiest meal to prepare on your own, it is also the easiest meal to eat out and still eat healthily. Make breakfast your biggest meal and you will be able to stack up on eggs, fruits, vegetables, etc.

Most Disney food courts and hotel stores have a grab-and-go section where you can buy things such as boiled eggs, salads, veggie wraps, etc. These options can also be found at many of the counter service restaurants throughout the theme parks.

    We go every year and I usually manage to lose weight there. I eat, but with my healthy eating habits and all the walking, it helps.

    Good to know! We’ll be there in March but I doubt we’ll be eating healthy. I like to go all out on vacations.

      Haha I try my best to eat healthy while I’m there but you’re right about being able to go all out. Especially with all of that walking.

    With plenty of dining options it would be crazy not to find anything healthy! I really appreciate that you narrowed it down though, it helps a lot!

    Gosh there are lots of choices. I can imagine it’d be easy just to eat chips and junk but not good if you’re there for a few days.

    I can’t imagine the tons of treats you can buy when your in Disneyland. True, choosing healthy and delicious food at the same time needs to be considered.

    We’ve done healthy at Disney. We always splurge a little too (those chocolate covered MIckey ice creams are my downfall).
