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.
Disney is very generous with portion sizes. Consider purchasing a kids’ meal, (easier on the pocket), or sharing with someone. If you are in a room with a microwave, consider taking half of your meal home for lunch tomorrow. Talk about cost effective!
