Vegetarian Eats at Walt Disney World

One thing that seems to continually surprise people during their trips to Walt Disney World is the quality of the food!  At many theme parks, your choices can be limited to burgers, hot dogs, and fries.  While you can definitely get those items at Walt Disney World, there is more to enjoy!  Disney has gotten very good at catering to guests with all kinds of dietary needs.  At each park and at Disney Springs, you can find pescetarian, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, low calorie and many other kinds of food.
I'm a pescetarian and I've never found an issue finding something to eat at Walt Disney World.  Here are some of my favorites:
I can't make any sort of food list without including my favorite snack on property.  You all know how much I love Disney snacks, so picking one as my favorite is a big deal.  The Citrus Swirl can be found at the Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom and it's a swirl of frozen orange juice and vanilla soft-serve.  Take this one into the Enchanted Tiki Room and enjoy pure classic Disney!
Satuli Canteen in Pandora -the World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom is a should be on everyone's must-eat list, not just vegetarians.  While I love the fried tofu that is one of the protein options here, I've heard really good things about the steak as well.  This was the counter-service restaurant to debut mobile order, and it's one of my favorite recent additions to Walt Disney World.  Plus, it doesn't get cooler than eating in Pandora.
I could eat breakfast every meal of the day.  This is especially true at Kona Cafe, located at Disney's Polynesian Resort, just a monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom.  Tonga Toast is also available at the resort's quick-service location, Captain Cook's.  It's a thick, crusty bread turned french toast with bananas in the middle and a cinnamon sugar crust.  It's also served with a strawberry compote on the side.  It's a delicious way to start your Disney day!
As long as we're talking about breakfast, I also need to mention Mickey waffles.  These are available at the food courts or quick-service locations of almost every Disney resort hotel.  Many of the meals featuring these little guys come with sides of bacon or sausage.  You can ask them to switch the meat for a different side, like I did during this meal at Coronado Springs, opting for scrambled eggs instead.  PS:  This is a kids meal.  Disney portions are huge.  If you won't finish a full adult sized meal, consider opting for the kids size, saving money and valuable stomach space for more Disney snacks!
The Polite Pig in Disney Springs has a ton of buzz and what I hear from my carnivore friends, it's well deserved. So why would I recommend a barbecue restaurant for vegetarians?  The sides, of course.  On a recent trip to WDW, we had a reservation at Homecomin' but a couple of hours before our scheduled dinner time, we were feeling in the mood for a snack.  We stopped at The Polite Pig and tried their sides.  They were fantastic!  Pictured here are the waffle fries, grilled corn, and watermelon salad.  All were delicious!

This is just a sampling of good vegetarian eats at Walt Disney World resort.  What are some of your favorites?

Date Based Ticketing Coming to Walt Disney World

In a move that had been highly rumored for months, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida introduced date based ticketing today.  Here's what we know:
What is Date Based Ticketing? -Instead of paying one set price to enter any of Walt Disney World's four theme parks, your price will vary depending on when you go.  Busier times of year (think school breaks and the holidays) are more popular times of the year to go to WDW, so those tickets will be more expensive.  If you travel during a less crowded time of year, those tickets will be less expensive.  This is a system that has been in place at Disneyland Resort in California for single-day tickets for some time now.
Disneyland Resort already has date-based ticketing What about Multi-Day Tickets? -The date based ticketing will also apply to multi-day tickets.  So your three day park hopper ticket will vary in price depending on the time of year you travel.  You must also select the time-frame in which you plan to use your ticket when …

Storybook Character Dining to Debut at Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

I'm so excited about today's update!  Character dining is coming to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  This winter, Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen will welcome guests to dine with them at Artist Point. 
Information is limited at this time, but we do know that it will be a prix fixe menu with shared appetizers, a delicious entree and dessert.  We're still eagerly waiting for information on the opening date, menus, and how many dining plan credits this experience will require.  However, I immediately thought of my fellow Dopeys when this information was released.  How great would this be as a celebration meal after completing the Dopey Challenge?
What do you think? Are you excited for this option?

My Favorite Race in 2017

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!  For this week's Tuesdays On the Run, the topic is "favorite race of 2017"  I have to admit, I was having a hard time choosing which was the best.  2017 was a fantastic racing year for me.  I set new PRs and even earned my coast to coast medal!  However, my favorite race of the year was the 2017 Cedar Point Half Marathon.

The Cedar Point Half Marathon is part of the Run and Ride Race Series which features races all around the country ranging from 1 mile fun runs to half marathons at some of the best theme parks out there!

This past June, Nicole and I both participated in the run and ride weekend at Cedar Point.  Nicole ran the quarter marathon and I ran the half marathon.  The main reason this was my favorite race of the year was this happened:
Yup, I broke the tape!
I still can't believe this was a thing that happened!  I had so much fun running through the park and then the streets of Sandusky, OH.  This is my proudest racing moment …
