Pack your own lunch and snacks.
This park allows you to bring your own lunch, snacks and water. Just store them in a small cooler and put them in the lockers off Main Street. Then, plan your daily route to head back toward Main Street for lunch.
Download the app.
You might find yourself getting hungry while walking around the park, and you might not be close to your packed lunch. Download the Disney Parks Mobile Magic app, and you can see all the restaurants in your nearby land. This app features every
menu for every restaurant in the park, so you can make sure you pick one with healthy options.
When in doubt, head to Liberty Square.
The Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square has some great choices. The Lighthouse Sandwich features hummus with tomato and broccoli slaw on toasted multigrain bread. Not bad if you skip the chips. There’s also a Grilled Salmon option, served with couscous and steamed broccoli or a Garden Harvest Salad with mixed greens, garden veggies, green beans, carrots and chicken.
Look for healthy bites.
Despite what you might think, there are healthy snacks for purchase in the Magic Kingdom. I loved the fresh-fruit options that were available around the park. The popcorn also isn’t too bad of an option when you’re in a pinch.
Put on your walking shoes.
I read somewhere that you can expect to walk at least six miles when you visit the Magic Kingdom for the day. Well, we decided to jump around, crisscrossing the park several times, so I know we clocked in additional miles with our odd route. Make a route that gets you moving, too!
