Doing Disney On A Diet? Yes.. You Can!

I know what you’re thinking; you’ve got the kids and the car packed and you’re on your way to Disney World. And though you’re looking forward to the fun, you might be worried about the toll it will take on your tummy. Ah, have no fear!  There is good news in the good food department of Disney.

 You may recall a while back, that the Walt Disney Company announced it was taking a big step toward health when officials unveiled a plan to ban junk food advertising on it’s media properties. That commitment can also be found in the parks where there are plenty of healthy options to choose from. I asked my good friend, Ashley Reeve of A Cup Of Disney to walk me through some of the things that taste good but won’t make our diets explode.

Come with me as I take you on a quick tour of some of the “lighter side” of Disney parks.

  • Polynesian Resort: Kona Cafe 1 of 5

    YUM! Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Resort has something for every taste bud. Fresh fish, fruit and other healthy options are on the menu and if you choose those, you can afford a dietary splurge like these nut pancakes! photo credit: JeffChristiansen
  • Animal Kingdom Lodge: Boma 2 of 5

    If you find yourself famished at Animal Kingdom Lodge, make this one of your stops. Boma is beautifully decorated like an African, marketplace and offers dishes prepared in an open kitchen over a wood rotisserie grill. photo credit: BestofWDW
  • Magic Kingdom: Columbia Harbor House 3 of 5

    Located in Liberty Square, Columbia Harbor House is another great stop if you're trying to keep it light. Salmon, shrimp and salads are among the varied options to choose from photo credit:

    You already know how I feel about Epcot and the food is a big reason for that. Sunshine Seasons Food Court is perfect for those times when everyone wants something different. Located in the Land Pavilion, salad, salmon and rotisserie chicken are but a few of the offerings. Perfect for a fast, casual meal. photo credit:
  • Hollywood Studios: Sunset Ranch Market 5 of 5

    Is there anything better on a hot day than cold, fresh fruit? Well, you can get that and more at Sunset Ranch Market. A turkey leg or veggie burger might be just what you need to soothe your nerves following the Tower of Terror.
