When it comes to eating, some might call me picky. My cooking strategy centers around “fresh, local, and organic,” and, because I live in the sort of neighborhood where that is the trend, my dining out choices are much the same. But when I go to Walt Disney World® Resort, I know that I’m going to be breaking my diet. I’m going to eat things with corn syrup and preservatives and artificial colors. (I’m definitely going to eat school bread and Mickey waffles, and ordinarily I eat gluten-free, so that tells you how badly I behave!)
One of my least favorite things to do in a theme park is wait in line. Conversely, one of my favorite things to do is … wait in line, but with one reservation. That line has to be in a Walt Disney World® Resort theme park, especially with recent changes and ones that are coming soon.
It’s very easy for a Walt Disney World® Resort vacation to be busy. You are running from attraction to attraction, while trying to fit in shows and character meet and greets. Add in a few dining reservations, time at the pool, and – oh yeah – sleep, and it can all be a little overwhelming! While it is a lot of fun to ride the rides, watch the shows and meet our favorite characters, we sometimes overlook the details, which make Disney even more magical.
What about working out while on vacation? Many choose to enjoy their vacation (which I am all for). After all, you will be doing a LOT of walking through the parks! (World Showcase in Epcot® alone is over a mile in length!) However, if you are training for an upcoming race, or just want to take a little time to yourself to get your sweat on, have no fear! There are many ways to fit fitness into a Disney vacation!
December is always one of my favorite months, but this year it’s better than ever!

The best food at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is to be found at the illustrious Hollywood Brown Derby, perfectly re-created right down to the collection of celebrity caricatures hanging on just about every square inch of wall space. The cuisine here, however, is nothing but 21st century.
Disney’s Polynesian Resort’s suites have a complete new look, and one that is quite pleasing.
