I got up right at 7 in anticipation of going to the Magic Kingdom and having lunch with the princesses.
Breakfast was a banana/blueberry smoothie. It was the last of the blueberries I had brought with me. I also had an apple.
My experience with food at the Magic Kingdom might be a little biased since we ate lunch in Cinderella’s Castle. It’s reservation only and the tickets are hard to come by. I got the royal treatment, though, and it was really nice.
I’d called last week and was told to let the server know that I am a raw vegan. The hostess had me go on up while my daughter-in-law dressed my granddaughter in her princess outfit. I told the woman who escorted me to the table that I had a special diet. She sent the chef to the table and we conferred about what I might eat. He asked about fruit but I told him that I would prefer a green salad–a large one. Since it was a three course meal, he sent out a beautiful plate of celery and carrot sticks and grapes. Next came a large bowl of salad. It was, by far, the nicest presentation. There was a nice mix of baby greens with grated carrots, thinly sliced cucumber, grape tomatoes, all topped with jicama sticks. There were wedges of lemon to dress it. It was decorated with pansies and some little yellow flowers. Beautiful! Dessert was brought out and I had a large plate of pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew, blueberries, strawberries, and red raspberries. The price was pretty reasonable considering the quality and quantity.
If you are at Disney World, do this just for the experience if nothing else. It’s fun to watch the kids (mostly little girls) with the characters–Cinderella, Mary Poppins, Belle, Snow White. You can click on Disney to find out all about it.
I’d smuggled in some dates and cashews and it wasn’t at all hard to do. The inspector was more lax than the other places we’ve been. I said that I didn’t see how they could tell anything by what they did and my son said, “It’s the thought that counts.”
We walked miles again and I thought I would be used to it by now, but no. It was another of those “I wish I had my pedometer” days. I had used some sunscreen on my face and neck but I still got more sunburned. We didn’t “do” all the attractions by any means but we had a good time and we were all ready to leave a couple of hours before it closed.
Since it was going to be a real trick to get me to Epcot and the rest of the people to Discovery Cove, my son decided that I should take a day off tomorrow and go to Epcot Sunday. My feet and sunburned skin agreed. On Monday, we’ll all head to Disney Quest.
On the way back, my son stopped at the little Kings Grocery so I could get some bananas. I grabbed some water to do me the weekend, too, and with bananas at 89 cents a lub (OUCH!) it was most of $10.
When we got to the room, I fixed a banana/date smoothie and ate a nectarine.
My calorie count was right at 1300, with 9% fat and 6% protein.
I’m going to bed and snooze the night away.
