This week on the “Disney Blog Hop” we’re discussing “Favorite Disney Parks Dinner.” Head over to Babes in Disneyland to see what bloggers are saying about their favorites.
I love Disney Parks dinners, but I’m not good with favorites. I’d have a very hard time choosing one Disney restaurant or meal that I like more than all others. I love nearly all kinds of food and there are so many wonderful restaurants and food options to choose from.
I can easily say however, that as a stay-at-home mom, my favorite part about a meal at a Disney park or resort is that I don’t have to cook it and I don’t have to clean it up. And aside from a few dinner reservations here and there, I don’t have to plan it either. But there’s more to it than that…
My youngest son has sensory issues and many restaurants are not at all ideal for him. He is a finicky eater and has trouble sitting still for a meal, even at home. Add all the distractions of dining out in a strange place and it can be a for-sure overload for him. This usually results an early exit for me…without getting to eat all my dinner. I hate when that happens.
This is not a problem for me at Disney. They offer kid-friendly foods and kid-sized buffets. The character dinners are a big help too, as they keep my fast/light eaters entertained so I can actually finish my own meal before we have to go.
One more aspect that I adore about dining at Disney…their attention to the special dietary needs of their guests. My problem with wheat generally keeps me from dining out at all…ever.
While more and more restaurants have started to adjust to special food issues, no one does it like Disney. I let my server know about my restriction and I can trust that the chef will safely guide me to my available options.
It’s a very special treat that I can actually relax and enjoy my Disney meals with my family, as I can no where else. It’s just one of the many reasons that I’m always looking forward to my next trip back to the World.
