Made it to Disney World.

Monday, June 24, 2013

Well I did make it to DW and we spent the day there until around 4pm. It was really hot and crowded but I hung in until 4pm and then couldn't go any longer. So we are all back at the house and the kids are swimming in the pool. Tina and James will go back to night with the kids and perhaps see the fireworks. I am definitely challenged finding foods I can eat but we found these gluten free protein drinks that we are carrying with us that help. The house we are in is fabulous. Really big and with every amenity
so far so good.
I am praying that my health continues to hold out.
I do hope all of my sparks buddies are doing terrific.

    Disney is really good about offering meals for people with dietary restrictions, but really really terrible about advertising it. It won't be on the menu most places you go, however if you talk to the waiter/chef, they'll let you know what they have.

One trick I always used in the Magic Kingdom was to go to Cosmic Ray's or Pecos Bill's, and ask for an extra plate when someone else ordered a sandwich or burger. Then I'd go to the toppings bar and make myself a salad - lettuce, tomato, cheese, mushroom, onions, and I'd usually use honey mustard for a dressing. Saves money and calories! There's also a new place at Downtown Disney that I unfortunately cannot remember the name of - it's a little place down by T Rex. It's expensive (but where on Disney property isn't?), but it serves a lot of healthier options. (I want to say it's Pollo Loco? Maybe? It's been awhile.)

Hope you have a blast! I haven't been to Disney in quite awhile, and I'm starting to miss it.

    So happy to hear you are having a good time and are pacing yourself. The pool will be a lifesaver with the kids! Glad you found some protein drinks that work for you.
Stay well!

    Glad you made the trip. Take it easy. Enjoy the kids but do not overdo it. You can lounge by the pool while they ride the rides one day. I am sure it is hard to find your foods there. I am seeing more gluten free froods on our menus now but not all are embracing this for their customers. We were at a great resturant one day and the couple next to us need gluten free froods. They were not specifially marked ont he menu, but the waitress went to the kitchen and one of the chefs arrived to advise the lady what would be gluten free. I thought that was very thoughtful of them. Of course, they are on the higher end scale for food so they are more accommodating than some of the lesser priced resturants

    Yay! SO glad to hear you are there enjoying the vacation you looked forward to for so long. Must feel good to finally be there. Good thinking taking it easy and listening to your body. I really hope you find some good options for your meals. There must be a good grocery store around you could stock up on stuff at. Maybe a Whole Foods store? Good luck! Let us know how it goes. Take care and stay hydrated.

    You were smart to cut your day back to the house and pool. The heat and humidity here can be brutal. Wear a hat and sunglasses walking around DW. Glad you are able to enjoy the grandchildren.
