Healthy Eating in Disney World

As I have mentioned earlier, I usually pack meals for myself while in Disney World. My family always stays off Disney property so we do not get the Disney Dining Plan. When going to Disney World, my family stays in a condo with a full kitchen. This makes it very easy for me to prepare my meals. However, if you are unable/don’t want to prepare meals to bring into the park there are many healthy options throughout Disney World.

I’m not crazy about burgers, pizza, and chicken nuggets so I prefer to eat healthy for my meals. It is vacation though so I always get dessert while at Disney!

An easy way to make meals healthier is to get the no sauce/dressing or get the dressing on the side. Another way to have healthier dinners in Disney is to switch the sides that the meal comes with to apple slices or vegetables. These tips work with many of the meals that I have listed below.

Here are the healthy options found at Quick Service restaurants in Disney World:
