    If I make any errors or do anything wrong please forgive an old gal! I am taking my first trip to Disney in June for my 50th B-Day. I am soooo excited. Any tips on healthy eating and fun stuff to do for me and my hubby would be greatly appreciated. :wave::wave:

    Welcome to Secrets!

    Oh, eating healthy can be somewhat difficult while WDW as you are surrounded by fried foods and fast food, but there are plenty of restaurants that serve more than those. Not to mention, you will likely walk off any calories you eat. :D

    Your first trip for your 50th birthday!?!? WOW.

    That is monumental!!! How exciting!

    Healthy eating? Believe it or not, it *can* be done! Sushi, salads, grilled foods...they're out there...you just have to know the right places to go!

    How exciting! Tell us about your trip!

    Healthy eating can be done. But, you definately have to know where to look. You also have to watch out for all the yummy, unhealthy stuff that is everywhere. I tend to do so much walking that it counteracts all the bad stuff I eat.

    What sort of healthy eating? Low carb? Low fat? Low salt? All the above? :D

    Disney does a bit better job at low carb/sugar free than it used to, but you do have to know where to eat to make the best of that nutritional approach. Low fat is a matter of what you know, of course and then knowing where to get the food.

    You might find food courts and some counter service places the best bet for some things. :yes:

    Hello there. :welcome1:

    Healthy eating isn't a problem, just look out for salads, fish and fresh fruit.

    Welcome to Disney Secrets, inspireu!

    Ooooooh! You're planning your first visit to WDW! :D And for a special birthday! :thumbsup:

    If you'll let us know when you'll be going, how long (how many nights at WDW), staying onsite or offsite, and what you and your DH enjoy doing, we'll be able to help you--probably more than you might like! :lol:

    Just start a thread in the WDW Planning forum with some basic information and we'll do our best to make your head spin! :D
