What I Ate at Disney World: Part 1


So while I was away from this old blog, I got married!! Woohoo! We went on a fabulous and fun two week trip to Disney World for our honeymoon- riding all (well, most) of the rides, visiting all the parks, and eating all the food. It was so much fun and so delicious! I’ve been wanting to put together a post about all of the food we ate while we were there, but because we ate so much I am going to split this up into two posts. We were lucky to go during Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, which meant that there were even more delicious food options than normal. I would say that all of our meals ranged from good to great, minus a grisly steak that my husband Ron had, but I guess that can happen anywhere. We ate at many of the table service restaurants, as well as quick service places, and food stands. I would probably have gained 100 pounds if it wasn’t for all the walking we did as well. We averaged about 7-9 miles of walking a day- so it was not a lazy vacation by any means, but it was relaxing in that we got to worry about only ourselves for two weeks… it’s not often that we get to do that! So without further ado, here’s everything (well, most everything), I ate at Disney World, continuing in Part 2, coming soon.  At the end of the second post, I’ll highlight a few of my favorite meals that we had!
