  • Disney menu change

    I heard a while ago that Disney was changing or adding healthier food to thier themeparks. I'm just wondering what they are... Last time I was there, they still had hot dogs (which I like) and McD's fries. But what are the healthy options? Is it only for certain dinning? Just curious.

    I haven't seen much change as far as healthier eating options yet. But you can request healthier meals when dining at a sit-down restaurant. Like I'm doing the free DDP next month, and plan to see what they can do (cooking meat in olive oil instead of butter, maybe steaming som vegetables). If you go to the Hoop De Doo, you can call ahead and request your chicken to be baked/grilled.

    Disney says they are becoming trans-fat free, but that is just one step into making menus healthier. When I was at a convention in Epcot for a few days in late 2005, the food they served us was GREAT! Grilled chicken, steamed carrots and other vegetables, etc. It was really a healthy menu, and I don't know why that isn't something they do at their restaurants as well.

    I like kids counter service meals because they come with two healthy sides (I like grapes and unsweetened applesauce).

      WHAT I'VE LEARNED FROM MICECHAT...
      1. IF YOU APPRECIATE SOMETHING THAT ISN'T THE MAJORITY OPINION, YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE.
      2. IF THERE'S CHIPPED PAINT IN THE QUEUE FOR A LINE, EXPECT SOMEONE TO WRITE OUT A BIG STORY BASHING IT. WOOHOO.
      3. IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 24, YOU'RE AN 'EISNER BRAT.'
      4. PEOPLE WHO ARE DEEMED AS 'MODERATORS' AND OTHER ADMINISTRATION ARE MORE IMPORTANT DIETIES THAN JESUS CHRIST.
      5. YOU CAN EXCPECT TO BE BADLY REPPED IF YOU TRY AND MAKE A SERIOUS POINT.
      6. YOU ARENT TAKEN SERIOUS IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 16.
      7. AS AN ADD-ON TO #6, YOU SHOULD BE TREATED AS A SUBORDINATEIF YOU ARE IN A THEME PARK WAITING 30 MINUTES IN LINE FOR A DRINK WHILE SOMEONE HAS TO RECOUNT PIZZAS.
      8. "Disney may not care to hear your comments, but we do." WTFFF??? THIS ISN'T A DISNEY FAN FORUM, IT'S A DISNETY BASHING SITE.
      9. CERTAIN PEOPLE OVER ANALYZE A SIMPLE THREAD AND CONSIDER IT TO BE A CONTRACT FULL OF LOOPHOLES THAT HE/SHE CAN GET AROUND.
      AND FINALLY...
      10. PROLONGED USE OF THIS SITE CAN CAUSE AN EXTREME HATE OF DISNEY AND ALL DISNEY RELATED THINGS.

        one of the things they started last year was to offer grapes in kids meals instead of fries and of course switching the oils so you aren't frying with transfats.

          Hi there! Vegetarian checking in here In just the past year or so Disney has made some really great changes/additions to their menu offerings for not only healthy options but legitimate veggie-friendly foods. In addition to the "kid friendly snack options" (other than fries or chips as a side) they have started to offer a number of fresh fruits and other healthy snacks in their little side street carts. The McDonalds fries stands are still there (and, as far as I care, always can be! mmmm....fries) but they've started changing some of their other areas that were little market type places (the one near the Haunted Mansion, across from the stocks comes to mind and there's one in Toontown too) so that there are healthier options there. Last time they had bananas, apples, oranges, grapefruit for sale (at really good prices) and packages of carrot sticks, celery sticks, grapes, and a mixed fruit salad.

          As for the eateries, many now specify on their menus which dishes are vegetarian. And they are offering selections that aren't just salads, too. There are all sorts of veggie noodle dishes with tofu (WDW Noodle Bowl, Polynesian Resort restaraunts, and Boma at Animal Kingdom are some of our favorites), veggie burgers, pasta dishes and whatnot. These locations are marked on the park maps, now, with a little apple icon so you can have an idea of where to go. Almost all the eateries will help you out, too, if you want to substitute or switch things around - they're very good about that. And this is definitely not just the higher end sit down eateries (like Boma or Jinko, both of which make vegetarians pretty happy in terms of their offerings)...Noodle Bowl in WDW is just a quick walk-up and grab your food and go. One of the restaruants in Morocco is, also, and they have great hummus, falafel, stuffed grape leaves, etc. Almost all of the walk-up and grab food places have at least one sandwich or wrap that is all vegetable or a pasta type dish.

          Hope that helps!

              Re: Disney menu change

              I would really like to see Disney to list nutritional information on all their menus. How much butter, how much salt, calories, etc. I am not seeing too many changes (there may be for vegetarians, but I'm not one). I can get around and eat healthy enough - but overall I think there is still a long way to go. Of course, there are salads, but I would love to see more really good salad bars. I like going over to Trails End for lunch, so I can load up on salad (no cheese, only a little dressing) before getting a smaller portion of anything else.

              I'd also like to see more spices incorporated into dishes. You can have a flavorful dish without a lot of fat.
