Skinny Disney: Eating at Walt Disney World without blowing your dietWritten by Leslie Clevenstine
One of joys of vacation is eating well. But if you’re trying watch your weight or have other dietary concerns, sometimes dining out can be a challenge. In recent years, dining options for those who are trying to eat healthy have improved immensely at Disney World.
An advantage to a Disney World vacation is that you’re usually very active, which helps to burn extra calories. Just don’t let that fact lull you into a false sense of security and throw all good sense out window. It’s very easy to out-eat your activity level in very short order.
You’ll find plenty of selections for salads, chicken, and fish at full service restaurants in parks and resorts. A growing number of restaurants also offer vegetarian meals. You’ll find that full service restautants are very accomodating to special preparations, if for example, you would like to skip a heavy sauce or substitute an extra serving of vegetables.
Some good full service restaurants to try for healthy eating: California Grill at Contemporary Resort, both Jiko and Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom (character meal), Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney-MGM Studios, and Restaurant Akershus in Epcot.
